On https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cameras.html it shows the Nikon D850 needing minimum RAW plugin needing v9.12.1, Lightroom CC 1.0, Lightroom Classic 7.0, or Lightroom Perpetual 6.13.

CS5 only supports RAW plugin version 6.7 (As per https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-compatible-applications.html)

(I wish the 2 pages linked... or a drop down system that you could select what camera and it would tell you what the minimum software version you need...)

Only option for the D850, is to upgrade to Creative Cloud, or use the free Adobe DNG Converter to turn the NEF RAWs into DNG files; then you can use the older Photoshop.  More details at: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/why-is-my-camera-not-supported.html


I have the same issue with my D500, sadly.

You likely won't be able to. You can't run any Adobe products (Camera RAW, Lightroom, or DNG Converter) that are new enough to support that camera on your computer.

OS X 10.6.8 is old and unsupported by Apple so it is not getting security updates and most new software won't work on it. My advice is to replace your computer with one that can run the current version of macOS. Any Mac from roughly 2009/2010 forward will work with macOS High Sierra (10.13.x) and will support your camera.

Is it possible to do the dng conversation on a different computer and the process the files on the older computer that has photoshop?

I have a newer laptop with high sierra. The older computer is reserved for art projects and is normally not connected to the internet.

Sure.  Install the free DNG converter on the newer system, convert the file there, and since it isn't networked, you will need to sneaker-net it onto your old machine (use a removable media of some sort, which could even be the camera's memory card) for further processing.
