    Underwater Housings for the Nikon D850

      Gear

    In underwater photography, there is a saying that one can divide photographers into the ones who have already flooded their cameras and the ones which are going to. That’s why many people use cheap underwater housings at greater depths.

    Below, you can find photographs of the most advanced underwater housings for Nikon D850.

      A few hours ago, Nikon published yet another teaser concerning the upcoming mirrorless camera. As one could expect, we don’t get to know practically anything new from it. Such videos are supposed to stoke the atmosphere, which is, of course, happening.

      The fans of the brand and mirrorless cameras are constantly creating new speculations concerning the upcoming model and it’s hardly surprising that they’re excited. Not only will Nikon release its first full-frame professional camera around 3 weeks from now, but it will also introduce a new lens mount, after almost 60 years, changing its size and the placement of pins responsible for data transfer between the body and the lens.

      This is going to lead the company into a new century and, in the future, enable producing brighter lenses, mounting mechanical stabilization of the sensor and, possibly, mounting crop medium format sensors in the bodies with this mount.

      Since Nikon published a video with a new mount in the background (as for now, without disclosing the name), I’ve decided to compare the sizes of the mounting foot for speedlights, which amounts to 12.5mm (inside), in order to obtain the new mount’s dimensions.

      According to my calculations, the new mount will probably have the dimensions of 56.5mm inside and 65.5mm outside(+/- 0.5mm). Compared to F mount, which has the dimensions of 46.5mm and 57mm, the new mount will be bigger by 10mm.

      In order to better illustrate its size, let’s imagine that the external part of the F mount will have the dimension of the internal part of the new mount.
       

      1). New Nikon Mirrorless Camera Mount Approximate Size

      I think that it’s also worth comparing this mount with the cameras of other brands. The mount used by professional Canon cameras, known as EF mount, has very similar dimensions – 54mm inside and 65mm outside.

      The new Nikon mount will be also probably 9mm smaller than Fujifilm G-mount, whose internal dimension will amount to 65mm. This calls into question the speculations concerning a possibility of mounting medium format sensors to the body with this mount in the future. But you never know. Many years ago many people claimed that we wouldn’t be able to mount full frame sensors in the cameras with F mount…

      DESCRIPTION OF THE NIKON D850
      Nikon D850 is the first camera in its class which combines great image resolution (more than 45Mp) with the amazing speed of up to 9f/s, a wide sensitivity range  and the possibility of recording films in 4K. The sensor stands out also due to a wide ISO sensitivity range of 64-25600. This feature is definitely going to be useful in many fields of photography. 

      Nikon D850 also solves the problem of photographing dynamic actions in high resolution. The autofocus consists of 153 points (including 99 cross-type ones) and, therefore, it offers precision and unique speed of operation. The support of the CPU system with high efficiency - EXPEED 5, additionally guarantees the precision of operation and the possibility of achieving the speed of 7f/s. What's more, by equipping the camera with the MB-D18 grip and the EN-EL18b/a battery, one can increase the speed to 9f/s. The energy-saving features of the camera enable taking up to 1840 photographs on a single charge.

      The camera also offers a unique movie mode in 4K @ 30p and it uses, as the first Nikon camera, the whole sensor, without the crop factor. It means that the depth of field on the films and in the photographs involving the same frame will be identical. The only difference will be the resolution. During the recording of films in FullHD, we can set the maximum speed at 60f/s, which makes it possible to create attractive slow motion shots.

      Nikon D850 is the first camera on the market which is going to be useful in almost every field of photography.
