welcome to issue 76

This issue, it’s a case of out with the old and in with the new – in more ways than one. With its 46MP sensor and 9fps, Nikon’s new D850 looks set to be every bit as groundbreaking as its venerated older sibling, the D800. At the time of writing its specs have yet to be confirmed, and may still be unconfirmed by the time you read this, but we were so excited at the prospect of what its features might be that we’ve had some fun gazing into our crystal ball and coming up with a few predictions. And if it is all a done deal by the time you read this, you can have some fun of your own, scoring us nconfirmed by the time you read this,…

the new nikon d850 breaks cover

As we write this special report, the details of the new Nikon D850 are still shrouded in secrecy. But Nikon has released a few little ‘teasers’ and, from what we know of Nikon’s past strategy, current technologies and stated aims for the D850, we’ve put together what we think could prove a pretty accurate picture of Nikon’s latest camera. While this issue is still on sale, however, the true facts about the Nikon D850 are likely to become known, and you can see whether or not we got our facts right. We’re making a dozen key predictions so you can give us marks out of 12! If we’re right, this could be the biggest Nikon camera for a decade. Five years ago, Nikon launched the D800, a camera with the highest resolution…

this is what’s coming

46MP resolution We know that the D850 has a full-frame sensor, and Nikon says it will be ‘high resolution’. We believe it will be a brand new 46-megapixel sensor, and one firm piece of evidence is the 8K time-lapse movie mode that Nikon has already confirmed. This means the new sensor has a horizontal resolution of at least 8 million pixels. Unconfirmed reports say the exact figure is 45.75MP. ISO32-102,400 The D810 has a native range of ISO64-12,800, but we’d expect to see the D850 improve on that, despite its higher pixel count. Reports suggest an range of ISO64-25,600, stretching to ISO32-102,400 in expanded mode. 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen display We expect the D850 to have a high-resolution tilting rear touchscreen, just like the D500. This will make it much more effective for low-angle shots and…

evolution of an icon

The history of Nikon’s professional DSLRs shows just how far the technologies and the cameras have evolved. There are some notable landmarks, and some hints as to what might come in the future. What history tells us is that Nikon typically splits its pro DSLRs into two types: cameras designed for resolution, and cameras designed for speed. This makes sense because it’s very difficult, technically, to combine both. Except that, every now and again, Nikon launches a landmark camera that does both, and resets the baseline for everything else. This happened in 1999 with the launch of the Nikon D1, and again in 2007 with the Nikon D3. Is this about to happen all over again in 2017 with the Nikon D850? And, if so, what does this mean for any future Nikon…
