introducing nikon

Nikon was _rst established back in 1917 and quickly became one of the world’s leading camera manufacturers. The company has a rich history in both _lm and digital camera markets and now has an extensive lineup of cameras to suit all skill levels and budgets. From the successful range of COOLPIX compacts and superzooms, to the feature-packed Digital SLR cameras, there is something for everyone in the Nikon family. There is also plenty of opportunity to expand your kit with the evergrowing range of NIKKOR lenses compatible with both the DSLR and Nikon 1 compact system cameras, plus all the other accessories such as speedlights, camera straps and bags to go along with it. However, let’s start with the digital camera line-up and discover the very latest Nikon kit that’s on…

Digital Single-Lens Reflex cameras (DSLRs) are typically the biggest and most expensive digital cameras on the market, but for good reason because they also offer the most functionality. The bulkier size is a result of the mirror system contained inside, which bounces the image recorded by the lens up to an optical viewfinder so that you can see exactly what you’re photographing. DSLRs also have larger sensors for taking high-quality photos, but some are larger than others. Nikon’s FX-format cameras contain full-frame sensors, which are approximately the same size as the 35mm used in film cameras. They are designed to offer superior image quality with better sensitivity in low-light situations, but they also cause the camera to be much bigger and more expensive. Alternatively, Nikon’s DX-format cameras contain slightly smaller…

Compact system cameras (CSCs) are the newest breed of camera, introduced as a more portable solution to bulky interchangeable lens cameras. Like DSLRs, they feature manual controls and a relatively large sensor, but they do not contain a mirror system, hence why they are sometimes known as mirrorless cameras. Instead, the light travels straight down the lens to the image sensor, so there is no option to have an optical viewfinder; just an electrical one that displays a digital representation of the scene. Most CSCs feature smaller cropped sensors because they are so compact in size.Because this type of camera is quite new, there are not as many lens options available as there are for DSLRs. However, as their popularity grows, so does the lens line-up, and the Nikon 1…

Bridge cameras tend to be a little larger than compacts due to their impressive fixed lens that can usually stretch great distances to cover a large focal range. This is why these cameras are often also known as superzooms and is what makes them a great option for taking on holiday, because you can photograph a range of different scenes, from wide-angle landscapes to close-ups of distant action, without having to pack a variety of heavy lenses. So although bridge cameras can be quite bulky, they are still compact as a camera system because you only have one lens to worry about and it typically retracts into the camera body when not in use. Superzooms also usually feature manual controls, making them a great upgrade from a simple point and shoot…

Compacts are the most portable of all the cameras, with some so slim that they can slip into your back pocket. This makes them a popular choice as a first step into photography, because you can keep the camera on you at all times to practice your skills. As you’ll be in no danger of missing a great photo opportunity, compacts are also great for documenting everyday life and those special family moments. Compacts come in all shapes, sizes and varieties. Some are simple point-and-shoot cameras that only feature basic auto modes, while others feature manual controls for added creativity. You can even buy specialist tough compacts that are waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, so you can carry on shooting no matter where you are. The compact market may be struggling a…
