    Probably the last DSLR I will ever own

    Posted by Richard Tom on May 8, 2022

    I am a retired Professional Photographer and before the D850, I have been using the D700 for a very very long time. The D850 is very similar to the D700 and it was comforting to know that I now own a 45.7MP camera. Here is a few tips, always use Auto ISO to a max of the highest ISO with a minimum shutter speed of 200 (ha I can hear the skeptics) but this isn't a film camera so forget all about using 100 iso for fine grain. It is better to get the shot no matter how grainy which usually isn't because it is a digital camera then getting a blurred image in a wedding. I have shot one of the most beautiful photos in a wedding in almost pitch dark outside shoots using no flash because a flash outside simply disappears but Auto ISO at Max ISO settings will give you the advantage of every other photographer out there who has trained under film. Throw your film knowledge away on ISO and go digital. This is why you do buy a digital camera and that is to push the limits and not to stay safe by shooting at 100 iso. I read somewhere that their camera kept looking up on them and probably a low ISO is the problem as very low shutter speeds and blurry photos are the problem. Grainy photos can be fixed under photoshop but blurry photos or missed photos cannot. The D850 might even be the last of the prism/mirrors ever produced as everyone goes mirrorless and that is another thing where a DSLR is the clarity of seeing what you are shooting and you can follow a moving object like at the wedding throwing a bouquet, or a bird flight. If you want to shoot movies get a movie camera and not a DSLR. It is wonderful that this camera can shoot movie but it is a secondary function to me. I love my last camera and goodbye to DSLRs. Thank goodness that the LAST DSLR D850 is a 45.7MP camera. Buy this camera before they are all gone!!!

    Worst Nikon I have ever owned

    Posted by jim on April 2, 2022

    Worst Camera I have ever owned. AF is not accurate, regardless of Lens, Settings, Mode, AF Fine Tuning. Produces Mosquitoes by the handful regardless of the Picture Controls settings. Horrible battery life. Nikon claims it is Fine. I would counter and say it truly is a Piece of Fecal Matter

    Didn't meet my expectations

    Posted by Jaycee Shepherd on February 19, 2022

    I have had my 850 for about four months now, and I am not impressed. I mainly shoot portraits and weddings, and it is not suitable for my style of shooting. At almost every single shoot I have used it, the camera has frozen up on me making it impossible to take pictures, press any buttons, or even power it off. Because of this I have missed lots of shots that are important on wedding days. My clients feel awkward with the long pauses, and I become embarrassed because it makes me look unprofessional with what is supposed to be a professional camera. The live view focusing system produces the best quality images, but it is extremely slow and isn't realistic when shooting portraits. To me, that is unacceptable and I am in the market for a different camera. However, for shots like details, stills, and situations that I can have complete control over, the quality of the images is great and captures great detail. Considering how much money I spent on this camera model, I am disappointed with its performance overall.

    I have had Nikon’s since 1982, my D850 bring pictures to life like no other Nikon I have ever owned, that includes the FG, LOLThe screen in the back of the camera with live view is perfect for a chef llike me that want to see the picture before it is taken without using an old school eye piece. SnapBridge could be easier to use, over all you will be thrilled with the colors that this camera brings to life, any food stylist or chef can feel very comfortable with this camera to sell their work. Great job Nikon,!!! this is my 7th Nikon, I still have all the great memories at Yankee stadium with all the Nikon’s I brought as my guest every year since 1982. tNikon has helped me hang on to the best times of my life!!!

    D850, If I could give it Zero Stars, I would still think that would be too generous

    Posted by jim on December 14, 2021

    Worst DSLR, actually the worst Camera, I have ever owned. Has never produced an acceptably sharp image regardless of what Lens, AF mode is used, or what AF Fine Tuning is used(gets worse from an already soft image, even at 1/2000 sec shutter speed. Produces Halos around objects, and around letters. Horrible battery life, less than 300/charge, that is with all wireless off, image preview off, and not looking at the images while card is in the camera. Nikon claims the camera is Perfect, well if perfect is serious image quality drop from my D810, they they are correct. I can't even sell this junk in clear conscience, knowing it is defective. As I said, worst camera I have ever owned

    D850 worth every penny no regrets

    Posted by David Palmer on July 27, 2021

    Best wildlife camera ever. Once I paired it with an en-el18c it came up to 9fps just amazing. I really love this body with Nikon 500mm f/4 PF. Just right to carry for fast birding and lots of other moving critters.I also carry a couple of wide primes to never miss a landscape. Handles like my D500 which makes them the perfect pair. Never a moments trouble and yes these cameras get a lot of use in challenging environments. Lots of wetlands. I a nutshell D850 is worth every penny

    The Perfect Nikon Body

    Posted by MICHAEL SMITH on January 2, 2021

    If you are a professional or serious armature and care about quality images, the D850 is the perfect body. I purchased this body about 3 years ago, and have not had any regrets. If quality and versality is your desire, I highly recommend this body. I am not a professional photographer, however I have been a fan of Nikon products for some time, starting with the Nikon FE - posted 1/3/21

    D850, Still the absolute best DSLR!

    Posted by Christopher Farlowe on December 4, 2020

    Everything that I wanted to find in a camera....versatility, speed, superb ergonomic design and what's more, it's a Nikon! Need I say more? Ok, I will....I am not a pro, however I studied, I listened and learned, while I scratched & clawed until I could afford this camera and I have no regrets. I did get lucky when I made my purchase, the D850 was on sale and included a free Nikon MB-D18 battery grip. I know that isn't the norm, but I would have saved to get it because of the added performance and usability. This is an outright great camera and still to this day has factors of photography uses that mirrorless systems (as great as these are) are not designed to be used. I look forward to what Nikon innovates, building on what the D850 can and does do, plus Nikon's implementations in the mirrorless systems! Bravo Nikon!
