Apple never neglects to mention whatever improved optics are in the latest iPhone during each and every iPhone launch event, and it's never just lip service -- the rear-cameras on last few iPhone releases have been quite good. Even with that being the case, however, we find it a tad surprising that iPhone devices ranked as the second most popular camera on Flickr last year, Yahoo's popular photo storage and sharing site.In a ranking of the top overall camera brands on Flickr in 2014, Apple shoved aside Nikon to take the second place spot by accounting for 9.6 percent of the photos that appear on...

Have you been patiently waiting for Nikon to update its medium-format D800 DSLR? After roughly two years, your patience is being rewarded with Nikon's new D810 DSLR. If it's a high level of detail you're after, the D810's 36.3-megapixel, full-frame FX-format (7360x4912 resolution) CMOS sensor aided by Nikon's EXPEED 4 imaging processing engine should have no trouble delivering it. "Once a user experiences the intense level of fine detail they are able to render using the immersive resolution of the D810, it will be hard to imagine a project without it," said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing...

There's no need to squint, and there's no need to check your calendar: you're living in 2013, but this camera looks like it built in an era that many have forgotten about. Out of left field, the Nikon Df has arrived. The company has thrived on selling huge, high-end DSLRs to professionals, but it struck out with lackluster interchangeable lens options. Now, the Df aims to strike a balance between the two worlds: it's small in terms of being a full-format camera, but it's versatile enough to woo those are serious about imaging. The Df is a full-frame (FX) camera, and amazingly, it ships with the... Read more...
Numbers aren't liars, and sales figures from typical point-and-shoot cameras are confirming one thing in particular: that industry is dying. Impressive upgrades in smartphone camera technology has enabled the iPhone to become the most popular camera listed on Flickr, and phones in general are taking the place of conventional P&S shooters. Another wrinkle in all of this is the consumerization of higher-end technologies. Some features that were previously reserved for cutting-edge DSLRs can now be found in a newer breed of camera: the interchangeable lens model. Nikon's first few entrants into... Read more...
If your business is to make and sell digital cameras, you might find yourself miffed at how many people are willing to settle for the optics built into their smartphones. For consumers, it's all about convenience and cost. Let's face it, a dedicated point-n-shoot isn't a priority for spur-of-the-moment shots when a smartphone is capable of taking serviceable photos, which some users will gunk up with an Instagram filter anyway. Rather than rage against this phenomenon, Nikon president Makoto Kimura is choosing to embrace it at he looks at different ways to take advantage of the rapid smartphone... Read more...
These days, camera makers are trying all sorts of new tricks in order to make up for lost sales in the point-and-shoot department. Ever since cameraphones became acceptable enough for the masses, there have been a lot fewer reasons to splurge on a compact. And with technology constantly shrinking, we've seen a number of companies attempt to shove high-spec product into small containers. Take a look at Nikon's new Coolpix A -- it's the company's first DX-format Coolpix. In other words, the sensor is the same as was in the heralded D90 a few years ago, but its size is far more mobile. The all-glass... Read more...

Need a new shooter? If you're looking for a mid-range DSLR, Nikon's got a new one to consider. The company just launched the D5200, a cropped-frame DSLR that boasts a DX-format 24.1MP CMOS sensor, a 39-point AF system, and an image-processing engine equivalent to EXPEED 3 built into the D4 flagship camera. The D5200 offers the same side-hinged vari-angle monitor as the D5100 that enables flexible shooting from any angle, and it covers an ISO range from ISO 100 to 6400. The D-Movie function supports recording of full-HD 1920 x 1080 60i/50i movies, and it also supports the the Wireless Mobile Adapter... Read more...

While much of the camera world gunning for mirrorless expansion, Nikon's staying focused on the high-end. But, in an effort to battle recent efforts from Olympus and Canon, it's making access to full-frame DSLRs a bit easier. The company's newest camera is the D600, a full-frame (FX) camera that's much smaller than the D4, D3 and D800, delivering a 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor, an EXPEED 3 image processor and support for 1080p HD movie recording. Also, like the D3200, this one will support wireless share and capturing through an iOS and / or Android app. The optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter is necessary... Read more...

It was only a matter of time before Android found its way onto cameras, and it appears as though that time has arrived. Nikon Rumors got their hands on some leaked product shots that clearly show a new CoolPix model running Android--which confirms what the site already said about the rumored device earlier this month. The CoolPix S800 (or S800c) will likely feature 25-250mm lens, built-in GPS and WiFi, a 3.5-inch display, Android 2.3, and the ability to run Google Play apps. It appears from the photos that there will be at least two different models, and they’ll be available in black or white... Read more...
Nikon introduced new additions to its Nikon 1 and Coolpix lines. The new Nikon 1 J2 builds upon the previous-generation Nikon 1 J1 camera. The J2 model features a new Creative Mode, metallic body, a higher resolution screen, and 1080p HD video capture capabilities. The Nikon 1 J2 features a 3-inch LCD with 921,000 dots. The new Creative Mode gives users full manual exposure controls. The camera is available in White, Black, Silver, Pink, deep Red and Orange.

It was only a few years ago when 720p video capabilities came to Nikon's D90. Now, 1080p is all the rage, and DSLRs are taking the place of actual camcorders when it comes to shooting music videos, television shows and even movies. Canon has benefited greatly from this shift, but Nikon's hoping to generate some interest of its own. This week, the D3200 "HD-SLR" launched, offering a 24.2MP DX-crop sensor, 1080p movie mode (with "full time autofocus"), native ISO range up to 6400 and one other, special bit. That would be the new WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. When connected to the camera, this optional... Read more...
