Nikon D2x - Doing a Slideshow

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

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...

Nikonians Remember Merlin

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

The late Mike Graham, a.k.a. Merlin, was himself a resource, a no-nonsense hardcore passionate fan of Nikon and a true friend. And not just of us, but of anyone who sought his comments or advice. Read more...

Rick Walker (walkerr)

If photographers needed a reminder of how quickly the digital SLR market is changing, the Nikon D50 sends a powerful message. Getting to the punch line, the Nikon D50 offers a hard to beat combination of excellent image quality, fine handling, and solid construction. Read more...

Nikon F6 Review: First Reflections

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

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...

Nikon D70 compared with D1H & D100

Lars Andersen Nexoe (lanex)

By no means complete in all minute details of differences and similarities, the intention here is to compare only the most relevant features. Features which in my view show the amazing evolution of Nikon's digital SLRs development. Those which do make a significant difference from the perspective of the user. Read more...

Pocket Card for Nikon N80/Nikon F80

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

Nikon didn't provide the N80/F80 user with a Pocket Card for its Custom Settings, but Nikonian: BJ Nicholls does, here. This is an Adobe Acrobat PDF file (some 210KByte in size) including the complete Pocket Card plus a Lens Cap Decal for the most useful CS. Read more...

Nikon D2X

Jerry Burnell (Jerry Burnell)

Is the Nikon D2X just another notch in the log for Nikon? Not in my world. It is a destination that I have been looking for, for over 35 years. I wanted a quick and simple way to make fairly large (16X20 in.), crisp, vibrant, realistic, and yet creative images. That is not asking much for the naive, but I believe I have found it.

Adventures in the Sierra Madre

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

"Las Ventanas" is a gigantic valley which under the misname of 'ranch' is sold periodically and with precise regularity, every 7 years: when abundant water comes out from its very deep well. Unfortunately in a finite volume and for a time only long enough to dream a little. One of those occasions was our turn to be the enthusiastic buyers. Read more...

Manfrotto 222 (Bogen 3265) Grip Action Ball Head Review

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

I am the happy owner and heavy user of one of these beauties. It is extremely versatile, quick and easy to use, apparently still a favorite among many pros. One only has to grip the handle and you can position your camera anywhere within the 180° sphere. It works very well, whether mounted on a tripod or on a monopod. Read more...

Nikon D70 Review: First Contact

Wayne Lorimer (wjlorimer)

It would be fair to say that digicams – point-and-shoot compact cameras, hold the lions share of digital sales today. Quality has gone up, prices have come down (considerably), and this all bodes well for the consumer (that’s you). Digital camera sales have now overtaken conventional film sales, and it may soon be hard to justify any film camera sales at all. Read more...

The 200mm f/2.0G ED IF AF-S VR Nikkor Review

User

This lens, released in time to be paired with the F6, D2H and D2X cameras, confirms Nikon's intention to bring AF-S and VR into all telephoto Nikkor lenses. At first glance it is an impressive lens. Later, one cannot but say that it is awesome. Read more...

The 85mm f/2.8D PC Micro Nikkor Review

Roger Engle (ziggy7)

Perspective control objectives are commonly associated with architectural photography. However, their capacity to regulate the distribution of depth of field make them susceptible of consideration by macro photographers, discipline where DOF is always a limiting factor. The 85mm f/2.8D PC Micro Nikkor is tried here from the perspective of the nature photographer, not only to learn about its quality but to also understand its functionalities as applied to this specialty.

How to photograph your kids

Rob Cruse (anitasm)

Hey - what's the point of an article on photographing your kids? Anybody can do that. Just pick up the camera and snap away - right? Well, that is certainly true if you are looking for 'snaps', but with a little more thought your snaps can become more than a record of a moment; they can start to capture the feelings, expressions and character of your children.

Phoenix 100mm f/3.5 Macro Lens Review

Paul Fisher (Paul_Fisher)

High quality macro lenses are not inexpensive. Super performers such as the Micro-Nikkors can cost several hundreds of dollars or euros. And the offerings from independent manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma are somewhat lower priced, but still not inexpensive. Read more...

Nikkor AF 28-200mm/3.5-5.6G ED IF Review

Victor Newman (vfnewman)

All I can say is "All-in-one" zooms have come a LONG way. I am quite impressed with this little lens. I have to call this a "consumer" lens, but that's NOT because of the image quality. I'm still amazed at the results that can be gotten from this very compact, wide-range lens. Read more...

This lens has had a formidable reputation for sharpness and performance, and continues in production to this day thorugh several technological updates.

If you wish to ensure that the colour in images from a digital camera or scanner will be displayed correctly on your computer monitor and output correctly to your printer then you need accurate colour profiles for these devices to allow translation between the "working space" (such as sRGB or AdobeRGB) of the image data and the actual colour space of the device. Monitors and printers usually come with standard profiles developed by the manufacturer, but these are just a starting point. Read more...
