Nikon D850 – First Impressions

I recently purchased a Nikon D850 to replace my aging D700. I’ve been very happy with my D700 – see Nikon D700 Review (and D850 Preview). But the 12 megapixel D700 sensor showed its limits, for example when I wanted to crop a photo, or when I was looking for more detail in landscape photos.

Photos from Jordan

Recently a friend and I traveled to Petra, Jordan, for a 3 day photography trip. Weather in winter (January) can be hit or miss. We were lucky to have a full day of clear sunshine, an evening with partly cloudy to clear sky, and an hour in the morning before the sand storm reached us.

Petra is a fantastic place. I’m sure that with more time we could have explored more of it. Jordan has much more to offer than just Petra, and I’m confident that I will visit again in the not so distant future.

Hope you enjoy the gallery.
