Nikon has rolled out a new entry-level DSLR camera called the new D3500, and this camera is an affordable way for new users to step into the DSLR realm. While the Z7 and Z6 mirrorless cameras that Nikon rolled out earlier this month would set you back at least $2,600 in kit form, the new entry-level D3500 will cost you a much more affordable $849.95 when it lands in September including two lenses. Those lenses are the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED. If you want to spend even less to get into DSLR quality images, you can get a single-lens kit with only the 18-55mm lens and D3500 body for a much more affordable $499.95. For the money, the new D3500... Read more...
Nikon has unveiled a pair of new mirrorless digital cameras that are both decidedly high-end: the Z7 and the Z6. The duo is nearly identical with the exception price, resolution, and autofocus (AF) system. The Z7 is a 45.7MP digital camera with ISO 64-25600 standard and ISO 32 and ISO 102400 expanded. Nikon's Z6 digital camera has a pixel count of 24.5MP and has sensitivity from 100-51200 standard and ISO 50 to ISO 204800 extended. Another major point of differentiation between the two cameras comes in the AF systems. The Z7 has 493 focus points while the Z6 has 273 focus points with Nikon pointing out that both cover approximately 90% of the imaging area horizontally and vertically. The... Read more...
Photographers do not always have the luxury of getting up close and personal with their subject matter. So, it's sometimes up to the zoom capabilities of the camera. Nikon is hoping to help with far away shots with its Coolpix P1000, a compact digital camera with an mind boggling 125x optical zoom, which is the world's highest on any digital camera to date. The zoom lens on the Coolpix P1000 has the 35mm-equivalent focal range of 24-3000mm. On top of the optical zoom capabilities, Nikon's latest camera has a 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom to shoot up to 6000mm, when those situations arise. "The Coolpix P1000 is equipped with a 125x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers the wide-angle 24mm to super-telephoto... Read more...
Nikon has a new entry-level digital SLR (DSLR) camera for anyone who's outgrown their point-and-shoot and is looking for something better suited for serious photography. It's the Nikon D3400 and it's designed to help budding photography buffs learn more about the hobby without feeling intimidated by a swath of advanced settings. The way it does that is through Nikon's Guide Mode, an integrated feature that provides step-by-step assistance when adjusting camera settings. Photographers can turn the top Command Dial to Guide Mode and see a full range of capture options, which the camera then guides them through to snap the desired shot. It's intended for first-time DSLR owners and helps make the... Read more...
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 the site. That was enough to barely edge out Nikon, which shot 9.3 percent of Flickr's photos last... Read more...
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 and Planning, Nikon Inc. "When coupled with the amazing imaging capabilities of NIKKOR optics, the... Read more...
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 same image sensor as the flagship Nikon D4. The camera also provides a system that allows users to... 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 this arena weren't anything to write home about, falling well behind Sony's NEX line in terms of image... 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 growth, especially as compact camera sales go on the decline, Bloomberg reports. "The number of people... 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 18.5mm (28mm equivalent) prime lens has an f/2.8 aperture, and there's 16.2 megapixels to work with.... 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 WU-1a and the new Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10/WR-T10. When the WU-1a is connected to the... Read more...
Nikon added the Nikon 1 V2 to its Nikon 1 System lineup. This camera is designed to strike a balance between portability and performance, giving users both automatic and manual controls. The V2 features a new grip, built-in flash, and the addition of a Command Mode Dial. The Nikon 1 V2 uses an Advanced Hybrid Autofocus system with a 73-point AF array.

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 to make that magic work, with it plugging into the USB port on the unit's side. There's also... Read more...
