"The Holy Trinity" ~ Nikon's Best Professional DSLRs, ever

Nikon professional cameras are the finest in the industry for wildlife photography, studio, portraiture, or sports. These cameras have remained at the top of the food chain, since 2012, for capturing the moment and perfecting the capture with the finest color fidelity and widest dynamic range available of any manufacturer. Nikon cameras are consistently “best in class,” from Base ISO performance (D850), to low-light performance (D5), to most complete APS-C offering (D500), to the finest 3-D Focus Tracking available (all). In a nutshell, Nikon empowers the user to nail the shot like no other. Nikon cameras simply deliver—and its a good feeling to know you have one (or more) at-the-ready when you go out there.

Nikon D850

The Best Portriat / Landscape Camera, Ever

The Nikon D850 was the first DSLR of any kind to receive a perfect 100 DxO Mark, offering the finest base ISO performance of any camera available today, surpassing even medium format. To quote DP Reveiw, “… we feel that the D850 will satisfy the needs of an incredible variety of photographers, and we’re comfortable saying the D850 is the best DSLR on the market today.”  To the exquisite image quality, Nikon has added very robust construction as well as an incredible panacea of options and customization potential. Although the D850 is quite capable for capturing wildlife, where this camera is absolutely peerless is for landscape, portraiture, and artistic macro imagery. With stunning dynamic range, and incredible color fidelity at Base ISO, the D850 simply has no equal and will remain relevant for years to come.

Nikon D500

The Professional's APS-C

As a wildlife camera, the D500 is hard to beat. Winning multiple awards its first year in production, The D500’s combination of reach (1.5x crop factor), superb image quality, dynamic range, along with pro-level ergonomics & customization—and a better AF system than any other camera but the D5—all combine to make the D500 a killer choice for wildlife. This is not a fine-art camera, but it is a hiking photographer’s dream.
