A Guide to DOF and Hyperfocal Distance - Tables & Calculator

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

You may have wondered "How do pros make those wonderful landscapes where everything seems to be in focus?" Well, it is not merely by closing down the aperture of superb wide angle lenses. They maximize DOF (depth of field), the region of acceptable sharpness, by focusing at the hyperfocal distance. A simple function of lens focal length, aperture and the diameter of the Circle of Confusion. Read more...

Nikon D4 review

Martin Turner (Martin Turner)

It was the year of the Olympics, and Nikon released its Olympian camera, the D4. Remember the D1, D2X, and D3? Well good! Because in order to understand the significance of the D4’s release, one needs to look back and remember how the D1 transformed the world of photography – first true digital SLR built from scratch and photojournalism was transformed forever.

What’s the Best ISO Setting? Native, Pushed or Auto?

User

The ability to dial in ISO sensitivities in the five- to six-figure range in 1/3-stop increments is pretty heady stuff. With the exception of some of the highest ISO ratings, the image quality of the resulting imagery remains surprisingly decent and is equal to or better than the image quality of the fastest film stocks, which speed-wise were nowhere near the ISO sensitivity levels we can squeeze out of our (H)DSLRs.

Nikon D700 Picture Control

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

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...

On Handholding Technique

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

You may have wondered how come some of your images look "soft" or blurred. Although at times it is an overestimation of the depth of field, quite often it is simply due to improper handholding technique. Your shuter speed is slower that you can hold steady. So you need to work on that. A little DSLR is used for the illustrations. Read more...

Choosing the right combination of apertures and shutter speeds is initially hard to comprehend. This article is written to help you understand those relationships to help you control your image's look, while maintaining correct exposure. Read more...

The Nikon F4 Review

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

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...

The Nikon F80/N80 Review

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

Carry it with you everywhere! That seems to be the philosophy behind the Nikon® N80 camera. It is a well made, small bodied camera that is light and strong enough to carry with you on a daily basis. Slide it into your purse or briefcase, or do like I do and carry a small camera bag with a couple of lenses. Read more...

The Nikon F5 Review

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

Most obviously the F5 is one of the killer SLR 35mm bodies on the market: 8 frames per second while autofocusing in-between letting the mirror dance at such a pace that your eye cannot see the dark pauses, 5 CPU's (3x16bit, 1x8bit and 1x4 bit), 4 coreless motors, a memory (ROM) capacity beating any camera before it, a self-diagnostic shutter designed for at least 150.000 operations all coming in an aluminum-alloy housing with a detachable viewer in titanium.

In Search of the Perfect Camera

Holger Wahl (Holger)

The search for the “perfect camera” is as old as photography itself. When you ask anyone what their opinion is on this topic, you will get as many answers as there are photographers. Your best answer will come from your own head, after you resolve the same issues you would personally be facing when choosing a golf club, cricket bat or tennis racquet.How do plan to use it? What is your ultimate goal? And (most important) How much money can I spend? Read more...
