The Nikon F4

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on June 24, 2010

My Nikon journey started early. First I had a Nikomat FS (1965). Then a Nikkormat FT2 (1975) with integrated meter. Upgrading brought me into the FE2 (1983) and the fun of the MD-12 speed winders. Later, the Nikon N4004s (1989), the N6006 (1990) and then the great N8008s (introduced in 1991). So with my own cameras and my father's 1959 Nikon F I lived the Nikon tradition hands-on. However, even that did not prepare me for the F4. Read more...

Nikon D300 Review

Romulo Lubachesky (Romulo Lubachesky) on July 11, 2008

Nikon's camera releases have always been revolutionary. It was like this with the Nikon D70, my first SLR digital camera, and then with my Nikon D200. Both very complete and with a superior quality.

Maybe an improvement in the high ISO -a worry for many DSLR photographers- or 14 bits RAW images? The Nikon D300 exceeds all expectations. Read more...

Nikkor AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Review

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen) on June 16, 2011

Nikon’s newest super zoom, the 28-300mm has big shoes to fill considering Nikon’s history for creating some of the sharpest lenses in the world. Nikon has been making great zoom lenses for many years and created a cult-like following with their famous DX 18-200mm f3.5 – f5.6. The lure of a super zoom is that you can buy just one lens for travel and you won’t need to carry along a bag full of gear. Read more...

Nikon D700 Picture Control

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on September 6, 2010

I thought for long that pre-set modes/settings were of little or no practical use for those of us who shoot RAW (NEF), in Manual Exposure Mode and always post-process even if minimally. The D700 has taught me otherwise. Read more...
