Nikon D850 DSLR Camera: Full Review
A top class addition to the Nikon line-up
- Fast - 7 to 9 frames per second
- Tilting, touch LCD
- 153-point AF system
- Superb image performance
- No built-in flash
- No GPS
- Uses the so-so SnapBridge system rather than offering built in connectivity
Highly competitive upgrade of the Nikon D810 with plenty of new additions and stunning imaging ability makes it a serious player in the $5000 DSLR marketplace.
Price$ 5,200.00 (AUD)
The Nikon D850 DSLR has just hit the market to an initial round of applause that - on initial tests - is more than deserved. The long-awaited replacement for 2014’s D810 - a good camera in its own right - has a stream of improvements and pluses with very few negatives.
But make no mistake this a top of the range camera - its RRP is $5200 - that should perform at the highest level and it’s taking on some very heavy hitters such as Canon’s 5D Mark IV (which is $300 cheaper), 5DS ($700 less) and 5DSR ($300 less).
PC World had the chance to test drive the D850 for two days, paired with the impressive AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens. The latter is an FX-format 2.9x normal zoom lens that offers a maximum aperture of f/2.8 across the full focal length range of 24-70mm.
It has a vibration reduction (VR) system and a silent wave motor for autofocus tracking, an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that delivers stable auto-exposure control and Nano Crystal Coat to reduce ghost and flare. It paired beautifully with the D850 and the photos were splendid.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
