AF from D5/D500

Uncropped 4K UHD video

120fps 1080 HD output

Focus peaking and zebras

Extended battery life

Dual card slots

 

Nikon's press release is here:

I wonder how soon the Nauticam NA-850 will be available.

Looks to be an epic camera though I will wait and see what the D500 upgrade holds. Hopefully, we can get 4K 60p no crop and 12fps same sensor or a bit better, but it will be a few years. I will rent this body though for some of my client jobs that need that full frame type of look and high pixel count.

So finally I ordered the D850 and hope that Nauticam will soon offer a housing.....any ideas how long this usually takes until a housing is available? It‘s like waiting for Christmas....

Hi Adam, to the best of my knowledge, great performance in capturing dynamic range is part of what makes up that score, so surely it uw photographers would benefit from it?

We are struggling to get hold of a camera body for a review.

 

I would imagine that once we get one, we will perform a review...

I have D850 since its launch to replace my D810 and just came back from a trip to Indonesia with my Nauticam D850 housing.

This is the first FF setup underwater for me though as my last rig was D7100. Worked pretty well but I still need to get a bit more

familiarized with changing from aps-c to FF. Macro is a bit of a pain as my working distance is completely changed and I will need to

change my domeport from 200mm (worked well with my 10-17, 16-35 with apsc camera) to 230mm. AF is better which is not surprising. The new natural light wb works really well with Inon strobes and wb calibration against my white fin at depth up to 10m

is very convenient and more accurate than with my d7100. May be because of bigger dof issue, I never had to adjust my AF fine tune on D7100 with my 105/2.8 VR but with d850, AF fine tune is a must. Luckily auto fine tune feature is very handy. A bit annoying that at usual macro distance, it was +7 but at further distance 3-5m, it was like -13. But for underwater stuff, it does not matter since I would be using it at near minimum focusing distance anyhow.
