In case you didn’t already know what a beast of a camera the Nikon D850 is, another incredible 8K time-lapse video has surfaced created using the D850’s powerful 45.7-megapixel sensor and the built-in interval timer.
I was initially hesitant to give too much praise to the Nikon D850. After all, I’m still rather fond of my current workhorse of a camera, my Nikon D810, and I paid an arm and a leg for it. Admittedly, one area where the D850 excels dramatically over the D810 is when it comes to creating time-lapse videos. The D810 is no slouch in this department by any means, however, the D850 is capable of cranking out these clips at a remarkable 8K resolution using advanced technology that Nikon claims will separate time-lapses created using the D850 from all others. I don’t even own a 4K television or monitor yet, but at the rate things are going, I wouldn't be surprised to see 8K monitors and televisions popping up in advertisements on the sidebar of my favorite websites soon.
The captivating video from Nikon was shot in southern Africa by photographer Marcel Van Oosten. Keep in mind that in order to upload the video to YouTube, the footage was converted down to 4K UHD.
