Photographers are some of the most extreme brand loyalists out there, and it was proven once again when one of the oldest Nikon cameras in existence sold for $406,000 at an auction in Austria.
Before he started busting myths, Adam Savage worked in the special effects industry building props and models for films. His love of iconic film artifacts is reflected in some of the recent builds he’s shared online, but it’s also fun to just watch him geek out over Peter Jackson’s amazing film prop collection.
Those long exposure photos of the night sky that capture details of our galaxy invisible to the naked eye come at a cost.

Thanks to the popularity of GoPro’s tiny, versatile action cameras, basically every manufacturer out there has waded into the rocky waters of adventure video shooters. Nikon’s just the latest, and while its offerings look a little familiar, they’ve got some weirdness about them as well.
While I usually enjoy a good crush on the hydraulic press every now and then, this one felt particularly painful. In its latest video, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to crush two vintage Canon and Nikon SLR cameras followed up with the complete decimation of a lens (which actually puts up a pretty good fight).

I’ve been dragging the Sony A7S on all of my adventures for the last few months — shooting in broad daylight and the dead of night. It’s gotten dirty; even dropped. Here’s how it performed.
Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.
Ever wonder what would happen if you gave a dog a camera? You don’t have to anymore: Nikon did it, and the results are endearingly fun.
