Nikon Asia published this fascinating look at the durability testing procedures for their high end cameras. The video features the D850 and has lots of interesting tidbits in it, such as the fact that the camera is officially rated for a temperature range of 32 to 104°F, but they actually test far greater extremes than this. The camera is also covered in dust, subjected to drop tests and left in a special humidity test chamber among other things. I’m not a Nikon shooter myself but I still though this was fascinating and I don’t doubt that other manufacturers do similar things.
