Originally unveiled last month, Nikon has revealed the Indian sale date for their brand new flagship DSLR at an event in the capital today. The D850 has been markedly improved in comparison to the older D810 from the company.
The flagship camera features a 45.7MP full-frame CMOS sensor without an optical low pass filter so that sharpness is preserved in photos. It makes use of Nikon’s in-house EXPEED 5 image processor enabling full resolution 7FPS burst shooting getting bumped to 9FPS with the add-on battery pack. It is quite versatile including a wide ISO range of 64-25,600 which is expandable to ISO 32 and upto ISO 102,400. It also comes with a 153 point AutoFocus system and 99 cross sensors for continuous shooting. While it can snap at 4K UHD, it can also be used for 8K time-lapse. The 3.2″ touchscreen LCD on the back is tilt-enabled and has a 2359k dot resolution.
The DSLR has been built using a rugged magnesium alloy body that has been weather sealed. Additionally, there is built-in WiFi and Bluetooth for SnapBridge that supports image transfer even when the camera is not powered on.
Going on sale from 6 September, the body is priced at Rs.2,54,950 while the lens kit with the AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR will cost Rs.2,99,950. A Jealiot Runner 0702 DSLR backpack and 64GB UHS-1 SD card will be bundled free with each purchase of the D850.
