On article Nikon D850 First Impressions Review (994 comments in total)

So all those rumors about a significantly improved SnapBridge were likely bogus too...Nikon want you to purchase the ridiculously expensive (for what it is) and messy WT-7A instead and no improvements with Automated AF Fine Tune either. Its still a brick too, no lighter than its predecessor, despite rumors to the contrary...disappointment mounting, sorry. DSLRs really are becoming dinosaurs.

Pixel binning, noticeable rolling shutter, no proper log gamma options, focus peaking and EIS only at 1080p and no on-sensor PDAF...another disappointing video performance by a Nikon DSLR compared to the competition. But as a stills camera it'll probably be class leading. Still I was hoping Nikon would finally really up their game when it came to video.

But is LV-AF any good now? No on-sensor PDAF so probably not. It would of been nice if it was capable of 10bit HDR video too. Other than those things, a solid spec overall.

"leading photographic equipment company" providing components? Probably Sony or Panasonic.

Interesting artistic designs...they look like weird little creatures or Aliens. And take quite atmospheric photos too...nice!

It doesn't offer anything that stands out from the crowd. Still its nice to see Nokia back.

One of the most disappointing new camera releases in years! Canon's arrogance just beggars belief!

What ever happens, I'm glad the Kaufmann family will remain the majority shareholder and in control of Leica Camera.

"Canon has issued a statement letting hopeful shoppers know that demand for the EOS 6D Mark ll kit with the Canon EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens has exceeded expectations"...why? Such a disappointing camera!

I really like the flowing organic shape of the viewfinder housing! This is Nikon's most attractive looking camera in a while. Hope the specification is as good as its looks.

Michiel953: Amazing how often the 58/1.4G is used for show purposes. Wonder why.

But this is one amazingly attractive camera. All that high res ff tech crammed into a D500 sized pro body? Amazing. Wonder what it weighs. 900 grs?

Yes, its a lovely looking thing!

hansip87: More like A7R2 sensor got imported at last to Nikon eh?

We don't know yet, from what I've been following for a while now. The sensor is purported to be a Nikon design with a unique to Nikon resolution of 45-46MP...we'll see.

tinternaut: Does this get to be where, over the next year or two, we see Nikon increasingly hamstrung by its dependence on Sony while Canon's sensor tech* improves?

* Notwithstanding the 6D II idiocy.

@russbarnes Couldn't agree with you more! That attitude is why I ditched Canon a few years back.

I disagree with DPR not wanting on-sensor PDAF. Even if it can compromise in the photographic situations that they mention. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages IMO. I've used a D500 in LV mode and the AF overall is awful! Generations behind the other stalwarts of the industry. Its about time Nikon caught up in that department with their biggest rival Canon who are the industry leaders in LV/video AF speed and quality. I'm going to be disappointed if there isn't a marked improvement in LV-AF on the D850...its not just useful for video! I also don't see why Nikon can't go all out with video capabilities on their cameras, its not like they have a video camera division, which might cause a conflict of interests like Canon does.

Kainecons: ouch. the fact that my 3 year old d750 outperforms in nearly aspect says a lot about canon and the 'canon tax'

Very reminiscent of the Apple tax. This is Canon at its most arrogant. I'm sorry but this is disgraceful! I'm so peeved (can't swear in the DPR comments section) off at Canon right now.

ShaiKhulud: I hope they will fix SOMETHING in the future software updates. That lifted shadows ISO 100 picture is awful.

So that's why its so bad...off-chip ADCs. I thought Canon's latest crop of sensors went the Sony route by incorporating them on-chip. Apparently with the 6D II sensor that's not the case. That's bad form Canon!

GodSpeaks: Good they are FINALLY developing a mirrorless system, but what is the fate of the Nikon 1 system?

Who were Nikon targeting with the 1 system anyway? An interchangeable lens MILC (good) but using a small sub M45/APS-C quality 1" sensor (bad). Very few wanted that.

That's good news for Nikon, but I'm currently dying to see a successor to the D810. Rumored for the end of the month...I really hope that's true!

Link | Posted on Jul 12, 2017 at 18:47 UTC as 160th comment

I hope this might be an indicator that Nikon will be taking video and LV more seriously with the rumored D810 replacement supposedly being released towards the end of this month. Finally Nikon implementing PDAF points on their (non-1 series) sensors. Its going to be a neccessity too if they release MILCs in the near future, and want to remain competitive.
