D850 Real time video of northern lights.
5

I got a pleasant surprise messing around with my D850 in video. I was quite surprised at it's capability to capture the Northern Lights last night. My D750 at HI.03 couldn't even come close other than a green blotch here and there. This is with the Nikon 14-24mm F 2.8 with the lens frosted over. ISO 25,600. I threw a 50mm F1.8 on after this shot and it was markedly better even when the aurora wasn't very intense. I had been contemplating grabbing a used A7SII just for Northern Lights video capability because up to this point it's about the only body capable of capturing them (Other than Canons 20,000 dollar MEF). I may have to grab Rokinon T 1.5 and see if it meets my needs for this. Just thought I'd share for those interested in it's low light capability.
