Huge Nikon D850 Leak! Announcement THIS WEEK?!

Huge Nikon D850 Leak! Announcement THIS WEEK?!

The good ship Nikon firmly sprang a leek last night spilling all sorts of D850 goodness and leaving very little to the imagination! The majority of the leak centers around the appearance of a number of slides, presumably due to be shown at the camera’s announcement, which give away many of the final specifications of the camera:

This is just a selection of the slides that leaked, but dissemination of the included information leads us to believe that the final spec of the camera will be as follows:

 

  • 45.75MP full frame CMOS sensor
  • New and improved version of SnapBridge
  • No built-in GPS
  • Tiltable LCD (3.2″, 2.36 million dots)
  • Fully functional touchscreen: supports touch AF, touch shutter and touch menu
  • Memory card slots: one SD and one XQD
  • AF system from the D5 (153 points, 130% frame coverage compared to the D810, all AF points @ -3EV,  middle/center crosshair sensor @-4EV)
  • New smaller AF point
  • No built-in flash
  • Back illuminated buttons
  • Joystick selector
  • Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • 8K time-lapse video capabilities
  • 4k UHD video in FX format (with no crop)
  • No EVF or hybrid viewfinder
  • Slo-mo full HD 120fps video
  • The SD slot will support UHS-II
  • Improved LiveView split-screen display
  • Improved silent shooting mode: fully-silent, no-sound electronic shutter in live view (no mechanical movement, can shoot up to 30fps @ 8MP with the electronic shutter)
  • Improved battery life
  • Lighter than the D810
  • Native ISO range: 64-25,600
  • ISO 64 extendable down to ISO 32 (Lo1 = 32, Hi 2 = 108,400)
  • 7fps without grip, 9fps with grip (MB-D18a battery grip)
  • 51 images raw buffer at 14-bit RAW
  • 0.75x optical viewfinder (largest ever on a Nikon FX cameras)
  • 180k RGB meter

  • Built-in focus stacking: up to 300 pictures with up to 10 levels of focusing steps (still need external software)
  • Price will be CNY 23,999 or around $3,600 (source: Chinese forum)
  • RAW sizes: small, medium, large
  • New 1:1 mode
  • New natural light AWB

The final tantalizing piece of the puzzle is that the cover page for the leaked presentation included the date August 16th 2017, so are we actually going to see an official unveiling of the camera this week?

Check back later in the week for more info!
