The Nikon D850 is the culmination point of digital SLR cameras in 2017. It celebrates with success Nikon's one hundred birthday with an impressive technical data sheet.

It is a mini-D5 and has a new 45.75 megapixel full-size Nikon BSI CMOS sensor with no low-pass filter. It inherits of D5 an 180,000 RGB sensor with better face detection and enhanced scene recognition, an 153-point AF system with 30% more frame coverage than the D5 with center AF point -4EV, and all others -3EV. It has a native ISO range of 64-25600 (expandable to 32-108400), video modes : 8K timelapse shooting, 4K UDH video with electronic vibration reduction recording in FX with no crop 51-photo buffer when shooting in 14-bit RAW and electronic vibration reduction, a "slow-motion" video mode and a new built-in negative digitizing feature. an 3.2’, 2.36-million-dot tilting LCD touchscreen with improved gesture control, a 7fps continuous shooting standard, 6fps with autofocus, 9fps when using a battery grip, 30ps at 8MP using the electronic shutter RAW can be small, medium, and large resolutions.
It has also an 0.75x magnification viewfinder, the first for a full-frame DSLR focus stacking, back illuminated buttons and a dual memory card slots: one SD UHS-II and one XQD but has no built-in flash, unlike the Nikon D810.
