Nikon D2H Review

Victor Newman (vfnewman)

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)

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)

=- \0

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 D50 Review - Compact, but Solid and Capable DSLR

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)

=- \0

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.

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.

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...

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...

The Nikon EM Review

The Nikon EM Review

User

At first glance, the Nikon EM looks almost too simple to be taken seriously. It's tiny, uncluttered, and if you were to remove the NIKON logo off the pentaprism, you'd never guess who made it. To appreciate the true qualities of this superb little SLR, you need to take a deeper look. Read more...

Nikkors Shootout at 70mm

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

Very pleasing portrait perspectives can be accomplished starting at 70mm. On APS-C DX format, this focal length is equivalent to 105mm, so the perspective further improves. Two zoom lenses providing this focal length, qualify as "pro" Nikkors as they are both "fast" -constant f/2.8 aperture- quite free of aberrations and very well built. 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...
