I don't know about all you young whippersnappers, but I learned how to take pictures with a Nikkormat EL SLR, shooting black and white film that I developed myself. Get off that brooding contrasty picture of my lawn. Yes, those days are over, but for those of us who miss them, Nikon has patented a digital back that can give your SLR a second chance.
It's been a year since the last Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition, and since then, the world has gotten a lot smaller. Or a lot bigger. Whichever way things are going, Nikon has collected a whole bunch of spectacular new pictures of it, and we've got a gallery of all of the winners.
Generally, the answer to the question "under what circumstances is it appropriate to toss your fragile and expensive camera into the air" is "NEVER, are you CRAZY?!" Nikon, possibly in a desperate bid to sell more cameras and/or extended warranties, has just patented a new feature for its cameras: taking pictures while in mid-throw.
Somebody tell the retro-tastic Olympus E-P3 to step aside, because there's a new speed king ready to take the mirrorless camera throne: Nikon's J1 and V1. Nikon's quite possibly the second to last major camera maker to release a mirrorless camera system (Canon has yet to show any interest). The J1 and V1 are a pair of cameras with interchangeable lenses that sit between a high-end point and shoot and a heftier DSLR. Both are built like a tank and fire off shots so fast that you'll never have to double check to see if you captured your desired snap or not.
In a sea of similar cameras, differentiating yours from the rest of the pack is a tough position to be in. These Nikon concept cameras from the Hello Demain exhibition in Paris show us a glimpse of what tomorrow's cameras will look like.
We told you that glasses-free 3D tech is going to be the new trend. Nikon seems to have gotten the memo. Its latest digital photo frame can convert 2D photos into 3D ones through its online storage service — but would you pay a monthly subscription just for that feature?
HD video shooting came to DSLR cameras a couple of years ago, but that feature has been improving and appearing in cameras at lower and lower price points. Case in point: the Nikon D3100, which is the first DSLR to be able to auto-focus while shooting 1080p video. And it costs just $700. Wow.
The Nikon s1100pj digital camera looks like a standard-issue point and shoot, save one difference: it's got what appears to be a second lens on the front. But that's no normal lens: it's a projector.
You think that Canon DSLR you got for Christmas has a lot of megapixels? Try this: The camera made for the Dark Energy Survey is the size of a car and captures images with 570 megapixels. Created from 74 individual...
If you've been watching the development of nano projectors in the past couple of years, you knew it had to happen: a point-and-shoot digital camera with a projector on board. This Nikon Coolpix S1000pj works like a conventional 12.1 megapixel...
