The D850 is a camera that won't let you down. It's versatile as it can shoot full-frame 4K videos and produce stunning photos, especially with a quality lens. It also has an expandable ISO range, which helps it excel with astrophotography but its low-light AF detection range makes it a top option for twilight and evening/nighttime shooting.

The touchscreen makes changing the settings as easy as it can be. An autofocus thumbstick, backlit illuminated buttons and an in-built timelapse feature also help make using this camera a user-friendly experience. Amazon Prime Day is right around the corner so if you want a reliable camera deal ahead of the annual sales event, this could be what you're looking for.

Key Specs: 45.4MP sensor, 4K video capabilities, 2lbs weight, ISO range of 64 - 25600 (extendable to 32 - 102400 equiv), in-built touchscreen and timelapse feature, backlit illuminated buttons and autofocus thumbstick.

Consensus: A great option for shooting stills and won't let you down. It excels in low-light conditions and is a top option for astrophotography too.

Buy if: You're okay with using a DLSR over a mirrorless camera and you're looking to shoot in low-light conditions.

Don't buy if: You need a mirrorless camera or want the absolute best-of-the-best model on the market.
