Nikon DF2 Coming with New Sensor and Advance AF

Nikon DF2

In an recent interview Tetsuro Goto from Nikon, it is found that Nikon is working on DF2 camera. They could use either current Nikon D5 or D850 sensor in upcoming model. The AF system will get a massive upgrade and the overall core specification will get a facelift. Nikon will keep it’s retro design.

The sales volume of the DF camera was not so good so Nikon have intentionally delayed the announcement of DF series camera.

Translated from Chinese (a part of interview)

When interviewer asked about the pixel count of upcoming DF camera

Q: I think like Df this model pixel about 24 million to 30 million between.

A: In fact, high pixel with high sense, high dynamic range of opposites, high pixel and then it is very high to do it is difficult to do it. Why D4 was used at that time, because his pixel is not high, but the high sense of performance is very good. Then in the future if you go to consider, in order to improve the pixels, 24 million -3000 million, I think more moderation, or use the D5 sensor, D5 sensor high sense is very good, or is the use of D850 sensor. If in order to meet the needs of more users, you can consider the introduction of two versions, one is D5 version of a D850 version, D5 version of the pursuit of high sense, D850 version of the pursuit of high pixels. But the continuous shooting speed, like 10 per second will not put this feature into, I will not put the video into, if the market to sell the features are put into it, then it with the market on the camera What’s the difference? At that time in the design of Df is also considered not to meet all the people to do, but to meet the needs of a small number of small customers, this camera has some unnecessary features all abandoned.

Nikon D850 vs Canon 5D Mark IV

Nikon d850 camera features 47 Megapixel resolution Whereas the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera features at 30 MP sensor.

Most importantly you are getting more resolution inside Nikon body without sacrificing the low light performance of the camera.  Despite of having such insane amount of resolution the Nikon d850 camera BSI CMOS Sensor still manages to offer standard ISO sensitivity of ISO 64-25600 whereas in expandable sensitivity mode the camera can be boosted up to 32-102400. The Canon 5D Mark IV standard ISO range is 100-32000 and expandable ISO range goes upto 50-102400.

While looking at the max ISO range of both the camera and the type of technology used while developing the sensor we do expect that Nikon d850 camera will give better performance in low light condition. But at the same time we have to wait for the real world reviews before commenting on the image quality of the camera.

Autofocus

As we all know that the DSLR camera have two different auto-focusing sections

  1. Viewfinder [Both system uses Phase AF Module and Nikon is more advance]
  2. While using Live view or Video mode – Canon uses Dual pixel CMOS AF and Nikon D850 still uses the Contrast based AF System

As we all know that all DSLR camera uses two different styles of AF system.  while using the viewfinder the Phase autofocus system of the DSLR gets activated and in that particular section Nikon becomes extremely superior since it uses the 153-Point AF System of Nikon D5 camera so if you are Someone who likes using viewfinder than Nikon d80 camera is perfect for you.

If you have a habit of using display screen while shooting your subjects  then go with 5D Mark 4 Camera since it features dual pixel CMOS auto focusing system, system helps to track and lock subjects in no time.

Autofocus is the section where Nikon is lagging behind continuously,  I wish Nikon also implemented some kind of hybrid sensor Technology inside the newly announced Nikon d850 camera.

Continuous shooting speed

The continuous shooting speed about the camera is 7 frames per second.,  but you have to keep in mind the resolution difference in both the camera (30 vs 47).  Canon 5D Mark IV is shooting 30 megapixels @ 7 frames per second whereas Nikon d850 camera shoots 47 megapixels @ 7 frames per second Who is directly indicates that the processor used inside the Nikon body is better compared to Canon.

When the battery grip is added  the continuous shooting speed on the Nikon d850 camera boosted up to 9 frames per second by maintaining the same resolution.

 

Dynamic range

The dynamic range of a camera is one of the most important thing for a photographer. We have already seen the performance of Nikon D810 camera which is still ranks as one of the best camera at DXO Lab with 14.8 score. And according to latest reports the Nikon D850 have same Dynamic range as of D810. That clearly indicates that Nikon  will going to lead in this category.

 

Video

Nikon d850 camera records video by utilising the entire sensor you can also say that it does a full pixel readout while creating a 4K video, But canon 5D Mark IV 4K video is created at 1.7 X crop mode. That means Canon is not utilising the potential of the 30 megapixel dual pixel CMOS sensor.

4 years from now the 5D series was known for its  cinema recording capability,  but now you can see a previously announced Canon 1dx mark 2 camera can record 4K videos @ 60 frames per second whereas the recently announced 5D Mark 4 camera does a 4K video at 1.7 X crop mode and remains limited to 30 frames per second.

it clearly indicates that Canon is pushing video features back in dslrs to save it EOS cinema series. That will not save EOS Cinema sales, it will end up loosing the DSLRs sale.

GPS

Nikon DSLRs doesn’t have but Canon do have it, Travel photographers need GPS to catch the location with exif info.

Pricing

The price of the Nikon D850 is $200 less compared to Canon 5D Mark IV.

Conclusion

We recommend you to get Nikon since Nikon D850 camera features class leading core specification which is superior compared to Canon 5D Mark IV,  one major area where Nikon is lagging behind is Hybrid AF Support (also they don’t have built in GPS). Canon 5D Mark IV features DPAF Sensor and light-weight compact body compared to D850.But at the end, I personally prefer image quality over Hybrid AF support.

Nikon D850 - Some Thoughts on Upcoming Megapixel Monster

Nikon D850 camera image

We are doing a early analysis based on the rumored spec of the camera (spec here). Why do we think Nikon D850 is one of the best camera ever launched by Nikon yet.

One of the biggest reason is its high resolution plus fast image processor,  the resolution of the Nikon d850 is approximate same as Canon 5ds r.

Best AF System

Focusing system of the upcoming Nikon D850 camera is similar to Nikon D5, that is approx 153 auto focusing points which covers 130% more area of the frame compared to Nikon D850

9 Frames Per Second With Battery Grip, Do you need additional camera for shooting sports ?

One of the best thing with Nikon D850 it can shoot 7 frames per second at full resolution and when you add a battery grip in the camera the continuous frame rate increases 9 frames per second.

when you have Nikon D850 camera you don’t have to carry any other camera for shooting sports and actions it will going to do all the job all alone

And when you are going to work in a crop and you are going to get approx 20 MP resolution  from Nikon D850 camera.  and the frame-rate you are going to get in the crop mode is approx 10 to 11 fps with battery grip which is approx same as of Nikon D500.

30fps @ 8MP

Additional, Nikon 850  is also capable to shoot 30fps @ 8MP with the electronic shutter

Nikon D850 is one of the best machine ever built by Nikon And of course it is one of the best camera that a professional photographer can have.

Dynamic Range

Dynamic Range

Just imagine the Marks DXO team will give to Nikon D850 after sensor examination

Before we talk about the dynamic range of Nikon D850 lets see the current DXO Mark table, even 3 years of its release the Nikon D850 camera is still the king of Dynamic range in DXO mark website. We do expect that history will repeat itself and with more resolution the D850 will cross the 14.8 Mark for sure.

Nikon D850 can push its ISO range upto 32 and the expandable ISO range goes upto 108,400.
