Shot a few engagement sessions this week-end. Used medium raw.

I really did not get to test the limits of the camera but I will next Saturday.

Still no LR update But there is a DNG converter.

Check the latest update, pretty sure it's supported now per their website.

ACR was updated but LR wasn't so you still have to convert the raw files before import in LR until they update it to natively support the D850 raw files.

Lightroom 2015.12 says it supports D850

It doesn't. As of this morning Adobe mods on the support forums were still saying to download the converter and convert the NEF to DNG files before importing in LR.

I'm fully up to date and it won't import the NEF.

Is the FPS rate faster in crop mode?

What are you guys doing for SD cards? I got a 128gb lexar XQD and was shocked to find out the UHS-II SD cards cost even more! I want to use the SD for raw backup. I don't want any slow down of operation, either buffer or slower playback.

If I use a slow (well a 95mb/s card) will it effect my buffer or viewing photos speed? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for the very expensive SD cards?

I have a 128GB UHS-II SD card and a 64GB XQD. If you use backup shooting I dont know if the buffer is limited by the slowest card, my guess is it is.

It is the write speed that is important but the D850 also has a very large buffer. Need to take 51 RAW 14-bit shots before there is a slow down as data is written to a card.

I have lost a total of 3 image files due to defective memory cards in the last 15 years so I do not feel any need to have duplicates of all my files on a second card. I instead use the second memory card as a overflow card. I found myself switching out cards that were often 75% full so as to not have to make a change in the middle of a key activity. With the overflow I can fill the primary card nearly to 100% and if something happens before I can replace the card the images still get written to the secondary card slot.

What for me is an unknown is the number of RAW 14-bit files I can store on a 64GB card. My calculations put it at around 1100 shots but according to the Nikon user manual the number is going to be less than 600 such files. No way to know until I have shot a wedding and learned the average file size for the day.

I've run into a few small annoyances. I'm cross-posting here from the Nikon forum in hopes that someone can give me some feedback/help on them...

1. There is no Delete>Selected Date option.
First, yes I know some of you don't use it, don't like deleting in camera, etc... I understand. However, I shoot my 2nd card as a backup on a huge card. When it fills, I delete the oldest files and keep going. So that was a VERY useful and important feature for me on the D750. Anyone know of a way I can still delete a particular date or group of photos while in the field?

Again, I TOTALLY understand that you may not do it this way. No need to convince me otherwise. Just looking for a solution that works for me. Thanks

2. Exposure preview in Live view.
I've realized that if I hit the 'OK' button while in live view it brings up the meter and jumps into a real exposure preview. However, I can't seem to find a full-time WYSIWYG solution besides that. Am I missing the setting that allows for exposure preview? This was in my D750 and seems weird not to have.

3. Image Playback on Card 1 only
I've noticed that I can set the playback to be only a particular folder, but I can't figure out how to get playback for just the Card 1 slot. Anyone know how I can do that?

Thanks in advance for the help!

The Capture One update to 10.2 has just been released and it includes support for the Nikon D850.

There are some recent in depth reports on Youtube by Tony Northrup - who I always find very useful in cutting through all the white noise from the likes of dpreview forums.
