APS-C format DSLRs like those earlier in our list offer a decent compromise between features, quality, and price, but professionals will demand a step up in image quality, and that means a full-frame DSLR.
We found the Nikon D850 an expensive camera (though prices are falling), but with capabilities that put it in a class of its own. Its 45.7MP resolution is spectacular, it has a 153-point autofocus system, and can capture images at 7 frames per second – or 9fps with the optional MB-D18 battery grip.
We know the Nikon D850 doesn’t have the new Nikon D780’s hybrid on-sensor autofocus technology, so its live view autofocus speeds are relatively pedestrian, but we don’t find that much of a handicap for measured professional photographic shoots, and it scarcely puts a dent in the D850’s all-round appeal as arguably the best DSLR of all time for professional photographers. It looked spectacular when it first came out in 2017, and it looks just as good today… but cheaper! best dslr camera for my use
