Nikon D850 in D810 or D800 housings: Compatibility check

Recommended Posts

Great news! "The Beast" has been announced.

 

Clearly early days, but I would offer the following published dimensions for consideration:

 

D850 146 x 124 x 78.5mm

D800 146 x 123 x 81.5mm

D810 146 x 123 x 82mm

 

 

Obviously, there are many other very detailed considerations regarding functionality, but at least, it looks like the D850 MIGHT FIT in existing housings. That's a start:)

 

The thickness of the body might be the most important dimension, given the new touch screen and ability to latch the housing, and in this regard, we might be in luck. The prism looks lower than the old pop-up flash of the older generations.

 

Time will tell and fingers crossed.

 

Any smarter people want to weigh in?

I don't know about "smarter people", Ian, but what I've read so far makes me thing the body has been changed significantly from the D810. A larger grip for one thing. And slightly smaller (as you note)?

 

I think we all dream that the next model will fit in the housing of the last one. But it's a dream, Ian. Just a dream......

 

The cost of the change is, off course, a nightmare :crazy:

 

 

Sounds a cracking camera though!

Hi all,

 

Nikon Rumors published some images showing size/shape comparisons..

Sadly, it looks unlikely that it will fit in any existing housings...

Not happening. Many changes to control layout too.

Sadly, I must agree.

 

Early optimism dashed on the rocks of reason...

 

I bet it will fit in the housing, and 10% of the controls will randomly push on a button

 

Not really good enough (sigh).

Are you people not aware of the agreement between Nikon, Cannon and the major housing manufactures that all new models will change just enough to achieve incompatibility with existing housings!

So.....

 

 

D850 in Seacam D800 housing... complete and utter fail!

 

No big surprise here, but the threaded tripod mount is not even in the same place. Never had a chance:((
