Super-Wide Angle Lenses Shootout

Jason Odell (DrJay32) on October 24, 2005

Nikon digital SLR cameras all use a sensor that is smaller than 35mm film, but the cameras themselves accept standard 35mm format lenses. The decision by Nikon to use a “cropped” sensor in its digital cameras can be debated ad nauseum as to its merits; depending on their subject, photographers either loved or hated the smaller sensor format.

Nikon D2X - Exposure Bracketing

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) on October 24, 2005

With digital photography you can see the results of your exposures right away. But, since the image viewing LCD is backlit, your images may appear a bit brighter than they really are. You can use the histogram to make sure your exposures are accurate, or you can be even safer with exposure bracketing. Read more...

Victor Newman (vfnewman) on October 24, 2005

With the big announcement from Nikon heralding the D2H, we would naturally want to test one. Given that one of the primary markets for this new marvel is sports photography, we went in search of some fast-moving action to try it out. Read more...

NIKON D2X - Using the White Balance Controls

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) on October 24, 2005

Back in the good old days, we’d buy a roll of tungsten balanced film to shoot under the orange-colored light of indoor bulbs. Or, we’d buy a fluorescent filter to correct for the greenish light of a florescent bulb. If it was an overcast day, or we were shooting in the shade, we might add an A2 Nikon filter to warm things up a bit. Read more...

Nikon D2x - Doing a Slideshow

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) on October 24, 2005

The monitor on the back of the Nikon D2x camera is big and sharp enough to watch a movie on if there were a DVD slot on the D2x. It's a shame to waste that beautiful monitor by not using it often. With the massive battery capacity of the D2x, it won't hurt to use it whenever you'd like. Read more...

Nikon F6 Review: First Reflections

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) on October 23, 2005

I am an avid (and some may say rabid ;)) F5 user. For the last five years, I have used the F5 a lot and never before has a camera meant as much to me as this excellent piece of machinery. I fell in love with the F5. Actually, my love affair turned into a triangle drama, me and two F5's. Never before have I have been able to take photographs so well metered, to reach such a level of excellence in achieving what my mind-eye had captured. Read more...
