Sony a7RIII vs. Nikon D850 Underwater Comparison

Nikon Rumors has a lengthy guest post comparing the Nikon D850 vs Sony a7RIII for underwater use and it is very thorough. The Nikon D850 is a huge step up over past Nikon cameras for video and it shows in the above video. I personally prefer the Sony a7RIII and have used both cameras, but they do a very good job of demonstrating the pros and cons of each camera so it’s definitely worth a watch if you’re into underwater photography and cinematography.
