Whenever there is a rumour about a new camera, everyone gets excited and what comes, in the end, does not usually live up to the hype. Let’s see whats new

Having used D810 for quite a long time, I am really excited about the following features

45-46MP Sensor

This is definitely good! with the market demand increasing for better resolution, this will be awesome for commercial work 😀

SnapBridge

Finally! there are so many times I’d love to wirelessly transfer to my phone directly from camera

AF system from D5

I’ve had issues with D810 a lot of times focussing in poor lit conditions. Since most of the times, I prefer my subjects in dark clothes. This would really be helpful.

No Flash!

This is the only thing that worries me when taking D810 out in drizzle or rain. I never use this flash and especially with commercial work I am never going to use this flash. I would not want it to be there! Closed and tight is how I would prefer. Love this!

New: the D850 LCD will have twice the resolution of the D810

I’ve never liked the resolution of D810. Nor it’s colour reproduction. Hope this is good enough


New: improved LiveView split-screen display

Although I love the split screen feature of D810. There is no way to do this in the video. It would be so awesome to have a split screen in a video. Maybe like a small window in the corner to check focus. Since Nikon D810 doesn’t have focus peeking either. This would be a great addition.
