Nikon D850 Awarded Highest Ever DxOMark for full-frame DSLR Sensor With 100 Score

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 13th October 2017: Nikon is pleased to announce that the Nikon D850 has been awarded the highest score ever by DxOMark for a full-frame DSLR sensor, with a score of 100.

The D850, which is the first Nikon DSLR to feature a full-frame back-illuminated FX-format CMOS sensor with an ultra-high 45.7 MP resolution, achieved a record breaking score, having been put through rigorous testing by DxOMark.

Highlighting the camera’s superior image quality and ISO capability, the DxOMark’s analysis explains that “the introduction of the first BSI sensor in a full-frame Nikon DSLR with a super-high 45.7 MP resolution puts the Nikon D850’s image quality on par with, and often better than, medium-format cameras” and “puts the Nikon D850 in a class of its own for image quality.”

Dirk Jasper, Product Manager at Nikon Europe comments: “The D850 has broken new ground for image quality and we’re delighted that this has been recognised with the highest DxOMark score to date.”

DxOMark is the trusted industry standard for independent lens image quality measurements and ratings for cameras, lenses and smartphones. The DxOMark Sensor Overall Score consists of testing three components, including the colour depth for portrait photography, dynamic range for landscape photography and low-light ISO for sports, wildlife and other action photography.

The score of 100 also is appropriately timed, as Nikon’s 100th anniversary celebrations continue this year.
