Just finished watching the entire video. Great job and thank you so much!

Steve: Your wildlife imagery is fantastic! A few stick in my mind. I love the Elk in the fog, and the Terns are super exciting. My favorite is probably the Ladybug. Was that a 500 FL I saw you shooting at one point?

Thanks for bringing the PIN feature to my attention. I missed it.

Yes, if a photographer has a technique flaw that was always there, the D850 brings it out. Incidentally everyone, Tony North makes the same point in his D850 video. It is the same for me; the D850 has been a challenge alright.
In fact, I still like my D500 better, but the D850 is gaining, as I learn to use it. FWIW, my D500 will always be quicker and quieter.

Focus Peaking and Silent Shutter: I have been shooting these a lot lately.

Focus Peaking: With my Daltonism, I especially like the D850's blue Focus Peaking when doing wildlife video clips. The ability to now shoot video clips without struggling to focus is a huge reason I kept the D850 camera. HD is exciting enough for me. And using the blue Focus Peaking color off a tripod, is wonderful. Forget video AF; it is a now a breeze to pull focus.

Silent shutter: Yes, I am sure I will find situations in which I love it, but it is not nearly as quick as the viewfinder. That said, working off the tripod with Silent Shutter and/or Focus Peaking, is going to be very useful in certain still-shot situations. With that LCD flipped out, things become very difficult if I try to handhold my telephoto. But I guess it is not meant for that. The tripod is necessary for this.

Right you are, even with my color handicap, I can still see that the colors of the D850 are more exciting than what I am used to. There is a definite improvement.

I do like the D850's Outdoor Auto White Balance. It has helped me a lot.

Thanks again Steve!

If I could swing it, the D5 would probably be my first choice too.

Thanks - and nope, all 600 F4 when you see big glass - although I have thought of adding a 500 F4 - I love that lens!

I am sure the video is good. Excellent even. But I can't afford to watch it.

I've been using the D850 for a couple months, but learned a bunch from your this video review. As I had already learned, the 18 grip (poor) fitment and near flimsy feel was confirmed. I may cancel my order for that damn thing.
Thanks Steve.

It's really amazing. The videos of Steve's I'm guessing are one-man productions yet have the total professional feel of one with a crew of thousands. Don't know how he does it!

Great video!!

Thank Charles

Also, the grip is still just fine - it's like 5-10% worse than the D810. I have no hesitation in using mine and the little bit of play that's present has to be provoked out of it - it doesn't bother me one bit while I'm shooting. And honestly, I think if I could crank it down tighter it would be fine - BUT - that tiny attachment wheel makes it tough (and if you do get it really tight, it's hard to release it). It just irks me a little that it's only *almost* as good as the D810, but I'd still buy it again.

Nice video Steve! As always, you make good video with lots of information but it is explained so well! Best D850 reviews by a long shot! I love you're professionalism! I tried the D850 last week and i'll get one for sure!

Thanks Craig

Yeah, this one was huge and I'm relieved it's finally done. My wife does the B-roll, but the rest is me. This one was about 50~60 hours of production time between specific b-roll shots, all those illustrations, and editing. That doesn't even count the research time, testing, post processing, and shooting (although the shooting / traveling is the fun part ).

Still, it's fun to see it all come together

Questions for those with the D850:

1) I just rented one and noticed the outline of a "safe area" in the viewfinder. Not a greyed mask - just an outline. However, the image was cropped to that safe area. The safe area was pretty big - offhand I'd say it felt like 10-15% of the total VF. Am I mistaken about this? Can those of you who have an 850 check and confirm?

2) Is it true that masking modes record cropped raw files? Totally lame if so
