Going Mirrorless with the New Nikon Z7

Connie Cassinetto (Via the Lens)

I have several photographer friends who have switched from a standard dSLR to a mirrorless camera at some point during the last years. Each time I would see their printed images I would think that the images were so much sharper than my dSLR cameras, even though I always carefully sharpen my images at the end of processing.

Alter Images this Winter

Connie Cassinetto (Via the Lens)

For some photographers it’s winter weather where they live and finding a good subject to photograph when it’s cold and raining or snowing outside can be difficult. Certainly, pulling on boots and jackets and braving the winter weather can result in some astounding snow or winter images. But, that is difficult for some people to do. Read more...

Basics of Flash Brackets and Diffusers

Russ MacDonald (Arkayem)

Diffusers and brackets? What do they do, and which ones are best to use? Well, both the bracket and the diffuser were introduced into photography to solve problems of the small flash. What's small flash, what problems do you face with it and how do you overcome it? Read more...

How's your approach changing over time?

Connie Cassinetto (Via the Lens)

My finger was bouncing around on the keyboard, on an online photography forum the other evening and someone asked this question, “Can mental quickness in responding to a changing photographic scenario be learned or improved?” Read more...

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

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen)

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 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.

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...

Nikon F3 - The never failing old friend

User

There have been so many rave reviews of this superb camera that my adding one here would be pointless. It's enough to say I've used them heavily since 1984, I have one of my own, and if it ever broke I'd replace it with another without a second thought. Read more...

FAQ - What Camera to Buy?

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

This is one of the most common questions we see at most photography forums, both by beginners and amateurs - Yet, there is no site that offers a thorough easy-to-follow complete guide to go through the maze. Quite frequently sound advice but imposed, not explained. Read more...

Panoramas - How to find the entrance pupil of a lens

Bill Claff (bclaff)

A panorama is a wide or expansive view. In still photography a panoramic image is one that is wider -sometimes much wider- than normal. Without a specialized camera, panoramas are formed by creating a mosaic of two or more images in a process called stitching. Although images are generally stitched horizontally they can also be stitched vertically or in both directions. Read more...

Nikkor AF 20/2.8D Review

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

The 20mm/2.8D AF lens is interesting, whether on 35mm film or on FX digital format. With it you can go out taking landscape shots without getting fish-eyed while still getting more or less the whole view at 94 degrees. You can also use it for "environmental portraits", having a humble object somewhere in the middle of the frame and all of the interesting surroundings too. 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.

Using non-CPU lenses on your pro Nikon camera

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

When you’ve spent a lot of time with a certain camera or lens, you sort of develop a relationship with it. You become familiar with its sharpness, field-of-view, and contrast, and know when to use it for taking the best images. But, over time, technology changes, and camera bodies have become more intelligent. Since your old favorite lenses can’t electronically communicate with the new bodies, they might have been sadly relegated to the bag in the back of the closet. Read more...

Learn about the Multi-CAM 2000 Autofocus (AF) sensor module

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

Back in the good old days of manual focusing cameras you had to turn the lens ring until the subject looked sharp. If you weren’t fast enough, well, there was always the next frame. Nowadays, our cameras are getting smarter and smarter. So many things can be well accomplished by camera automation, including autofocus, that it is now easier than ever to get professional results.
