It has been a while since Nikon’s D810 camera was released. So, naturally, the world was anticipating the D820, the next upgrade. But Nikon decided to leap so far ahead in terms of technology and features, that it would be a travesty to describe the D850 as just its ‘next high-end DSLR’. Nikon has, indeed, gone all out with the new camera (hence, the model name). The 45.7 megapixel sensor gives you shots of stellar quality, and an ISO range of up to 25,600 translates into improved low-light performance. A continuous shooting mode of up to nine shots per second is a testament to its processing power given the large image sizes involved. The noiseless shutter means you can capture that elusive ibis bill without scaring it away. The D850’s intuitive array of colour temperatures makes sure you’ll never get the colours wrong. For videographers, the camera offers an astounding 8K Ultra HD time-lapse, an impressive full-frame 4K for continuous video, and slow motion at up to 120 frames per second (or one-fourth the actual motion). Finally, given Nikon’s large selection of lenses, the D850 is equipped to take care of just about every possible professional photography need. Camera body costs 2,54,950; see
