Nikon D850 Experience book manual how how to use tips tricks


2017-11-25 – Version 1.0(a,b,c, etc.) published in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats – No updates

2017-11-28 – Version 1.1(a) published in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats – Various minor updates for sentence clarity.

2017-11-29IMPORTANT NOTE – Three days after publication of the book, Nikon released an updated version the SnapBridge app (Bluetooth / Wi-Fi connection between the camera and a smartphone or tablet). The updated app allows for easier connection, and more control over the camera settings via the smart device. I will test the new app and update the guide when I have the opportunity.

2017-12-09 – Correction – In Section 5.3, immediately before Figure 5.20, the following sentence is deleted. It refers to an option on the Nikon D500, but which is not included in the Custom Settings of the D850:

Or you can use Custom Setting a12 – Focus Point Options > Group-area AF display to choose to show small dots at the location of the active AF Points rather than the larger squares.

A similar line is deleted from the caption of Figure 5.21:

Use Custom Setting a12 to show smaller AF dots rather than the larger squares.

This is corrected in Version 1.1c / 1.1d of the guide.

2018-01-16 – Firmware Update – D850 Firmware version 1.01 is available. It fixes the following issues:

– Users exiting Clean image sensor after adding it to and entering via MY MENU would be returned not to MY MENU but to the SETUP MENU.
– Photos taken with On selected for Long exposure NR would sometimes have increased noise or shadows with a greenish cast.
– Slight aperture reset lag would sometimes occur after shooting at shutter speeds under 1/10 s (type E and PC-E lenses excluded).

It can be downloaded here, with instructions for how to install:
