Just days after the official press release photos of the Nikon D850 were leaked online, the company has officially unveiled its new D850 digital SLR camera. Its next-generation full-frame DSLR combines high resolution and high speed performance for multiple genres of photography. The new camera is geared towards professional photographers and serious hobbyists that capture commercial sports, fashion, and wedding genres.

The Nikon D850 has an effective pixel count of 45.7 megapixels. It supports ISO 64-25600 range of standard sensitivities. The camera can perform high speed continuous shooting at approximately 7 fps.

It has the same high speed and high precision 153 point autofocus system that’s used by the Nikon D5. It provides the camera with greater certainty of capturing moving subjects. It even has a new backside illumination Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor as well as the company’s latest EXPEED 5 image processing engine.

Multimedia content creators will find that the new camera offers enhanced video recording capability. Nikon has introduced its own full frame recording of 4K UHD (3840 x 2160)/30p movies as well as 4x and 5x slow motion movies with the D850.

The camera is also capable of creating 8K timelapse videos. Additional features include silent photography and in-camera batch processing of RAW images. The camera doesn’t include a low pass filter which when coupled with the high megapixel count means that it will be able to capture images in incredible detail.

The D850 costs $3,299. That’s just for the body. The camera is going to go on sale next month.
