Nikon D850 First Impressions: Landscape Photography

My name’s Luke Austin, I’m a professional landscape photographer from Western Australia I’m here on the South Island of New Zealand, testing out the new Nikon D850

The reason I chose this region to test out the D850 was because you’ve got rainforests, coastal cliffs, rugged oceans, you’re dealing with the likes of wind, rain, the ever-changing lighting conditions So I thought this was a perfect place to ensure that it is a landscape photographer’s camera It only took a couple of frames until I was blown away I was zooming right in on the touch-LCD and I couldn’t believe just how detailed the scenes were And also, most importantly, that it was detailed right throughout, all the way to the edges

The ones that I’ve really been impressed the most with are the ones with a lot of color and a lot of detail in the scene I’ve got a lot of depth to the image, and separation in color It’s clear to see tree branches aren’t encroaching on each other: there’s different variation of greens, reds, yellows I can clearly see that differentiation between the colors and contrasts The final image has that three-dimensional appearance

So for a lot of photographers, including myself, that have worked with the D800 and the D810, this next step with the D850 just takes things that much further
