quick guide to nikon cameras

Choosing a DSLR camera is a big decision. You are committing to a camera system, which represents a significant financial investment. Due to issues of compatibility of lenses, flashes and accessories, when you have actually purchased your new camera, you will be unable to use your products on other brands of equipment, meaning you need to be completely comfortable with your choice. Nikon is a company with a long history of pioneering photographic technology, having been an industry leader for a century. Today it is seen as one of the ‘big two’ camera manufacturers, in competition with Canon. While every brand produces high quality cameras and lenses, the Nikon system is popular for several main reasons. From a handling perspective, even entry level Nikon DSLRs feel rugged and well balanced, instilling…

As one of the most comprehensive systems, there is a Nikon DSLR for users of any skill level. From the entry level D3400 or D5600, through to the semi-professional D7500 and D750, to the top-of the range D850 and D5, the varied specifications allow a highly tailored approach to buying. One of the first choices a prospective Nikon user must make is whether to invest in a DX or an FX format body. Traditionally beginners would start with the smaller, DX sensor format due to the more economical price, lower weight and dimensions and more manageable specification. Since full frame/FX is preferred by professionals, these cameras tend to feature a potentially daunting number of advanced features, which can make the introduction to DSLR photography less enjoyable. The FX sensors do allow a…

AF-S NIKON 50MM F1.8G The 50mm lens is the universal ‘standard’ optic, offering a roughly equivalent field-of-view to the human eye. Versatile, bright and affordable, it will find a use in most photography genres. AF-S VR ZOOM-NIKON 70-300MM F4.5-5.6G IF-ED While not as high in quality as a 70-200mm f2.8 pro series lens, the 70-300mm range is extremely useful. The SWM focussing is responsive and weight is low. AF-S NIKON 14-24MM F2.8G ED Large, heavy and expensive, this is the ultimate wide-angle lens for FX DSLRs. Perfect for landscapes and architecture. Alternatively, try the AF-S DX NIKON 10-24mm f3.5-4.5G ED. AF-S VR Micro-Nikon 105mm f2.8G IF-ED Experiment with macro photography with this long-time favourite. VR makes handheld close-ups a reality, while internal focussing make close working distances easier.…

get to know nikon lenses

When using high resolution cameras, it is essential to pair these with high quality lenses, as any deficit in sharpness will become immediately obvious. Arguably, the optics of a system are the most important components, since without ‘good glass’ the effective resolution of any sensor cannot be realised. Luckily, Nikon lenses use a variety of advanced optical designs and technologies, for maximum sharpness and functionality. The baseline defence against optical distortions are Extra-low Dispersion and aspherical glass (see annotations) but there are many other features employed by Nikon. Many lenses use the company’s exclusive Super Integrated Coating (SIC) – a multi-layered coating, which is applied to lens surfaces for improved colour reproduction. Fluorite and Fluorine are two incredibly popular materials in photographic lens construction, for increased clarity and grease resistance respectively.…

other nikon camera systems

While Nikon jointly leads in the DSLR market, the company also produces several other ranges of popular imaging products, to cater for photographers with any and all photographic requirements and skill levels. For absolute beginners and those needing an ultra-compact and simplified camera, the Coolpix range of compact digital cameras is ideal. These models are exceptionally thin in profile, comfortably fitting into a pocket, for effortless transport. Their stripped-back feature specification makes them easy to use and capture high resolution images out of the box. The main disadvantage of compact cameras is their use of a tiny imaging sensor, which limits the quality of photos, especially in low light. For more advanced shooting, higher zoom ratios and a better handling experience, the Coolpix Bridge cameras are a fantastic alternative. These give the…
