Whether you’re a professional photographer, a photography student or  a photography hobbyist , you’ve been waiting for this.

On its 100th anniversary, Nikon proudly presents to their viewers the release of the Nikon D850!

Established in 1917, Nikon exhibits its status as a pioneer of camera technologies in Japan and  the world. Featuring a wide range of technology for everybody, everywhere. Nikon pushes the boundaries of technology as they continuously produce new advancing technology – encompassing opto-electronics and precision technologies.

“Over the years we have seen technology transform content creation. As an imaging products manufacturer, it is important for us to evolve out imaging technologies and products to better suit the current needs of photographers worldwide.”

A lot has happened with Nikon this year! Which I’m sure you have been keeping up if you love photography.

Here are their highlights:

Nikon is the proud recipient of the prestigious TIPA awards 2017. The Nikon D5600 was selected for best DSLR entry level award, the coolpix W100 won best tugged camera and the PC Nikkor 19mm f/4e won best professional lens award.

I don’t know about you, but if Nikon won best professional lens award, I’d say it’s the best bet of  technology today.

Lastly, the Nikon D500 also recently picked up its third award from the imaging community and industry with the Camera GP (Grand Prix) 2017 editors award.

Nikon also continues their partnership not only with Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) but also with Bernama- The National News Agency of Malaysia! With their partnership, NASA has placed orders for 53 Nikon D5 DSLR cameras after its last purchase of 38 units of the d4 DSLR model in 2013.

Now, Nikon presents the new highly anticipated high speed Nikon D850! This camera has amazing full frame DSLR! Aren’t you excited about this?! Many professional photographers have probably got their eye on it already!

The camera is geared towards hybrid photographers like wedding photography, and genres of nature, sports, and commercial.

This camera has been dubbed as

“Extreme resolution meets extreme speed.” Those words speak for themselves, which occurred recently A series of FX camera events have been lined up,  which are aimed at showcasing the D850 nation wide!

The event was very well presented and the media was very well taken care of which looked very professional. Although the event did start a little late, the extra Nikon product gallery was a real insight into the release of the new product.

Without a doubt after getting a good look at the D850, the Nikon camera is hands down the best for photography! The video recording is also finally up to par with 4K abilities, comparing to 120fps at 1080p, so it is highly convenient!

The camera also feels very good to hold and easy to manipulate photographic stances, as it has a good build quality!

However, I wouldn’t say the same for fulltime video people because for its price, it would be a tough competition with other options such as Panasonic, Song and Canon.

But don’t take our word for it! Keep up with more announcement and get the hands on experience yourself!
