Nikon D850 sensor review published by DxOMark. They say “The Nikon D850’s first full-frame BSI sensor breaks new ground for image quality as the first DSLR sensor to achieve an overall DxOMark score of 100 points.”
The Nikon D850 updates the D810, with a 45.7 megapixels back-side illuminated (BSI) full-frame image sensor with no optical low-pass filter.
According to test results, the Nikon D850 image quality for color is unrivaled for a DSLR, although the mirrorless Sony A7R II and full frame compact RX1R II comes pretty close. On the other hand the D850’s low-light ISO performance isn’t as top-notch as its other attributes. The camera produces fairly low noise up to ISO 3200 and can be pushed further with noise reduction software during post-processing.
Nikon D850 Sensor Review : First DSLR to Hit 100 Points
Nikon D850 sensor review compared to other related cameras:
From DxOMark conclusion :
Nikon D850’s image quality on par with, and often better than, medium-format cameras. The first DSLR to hit 100 points — rather apt for Nikon’s hundredth anniversary year — puts the Nikon D850 in a class of its own for image quality. At base ISO, it’s unrivaled for color in the DSLR class, and its headline dynamic range score is outstanding, too. Against the competitor high-resolution options from Sony and Canon, the D850 offers either better or close to comparable image quality throughout the ISO range. Although its headline ISO score doesn’t quite achieve the same lofty heights overall, it’s still a very capable performer at high ISO sensitivities, too. So if you’re looking for the best image quality at low ISOs, at significantly less cost than a digital medium-format camera, the Nikon D850 looks like the camera you’ve been waiting for.
