Nikon 1, the camera company’s line of mirrorless cameras, is on its way out.
With a ridiculous 83x zoom, people have used the super long lens on Nikon’s Coolpix P900 to snap pics of Saturn or pull off the kind of shots you normally only see in spy movies. But apparently that wasn’t good enough, so today, Nikon is announcing the new Coolpix P1000 featuring frankly ridiculous 125x zoom, which…
Most kids today don’t even know what a film camera is, so to get with the times, Canon is finally ending sales of its one remaining 35mm SLR: the Canon EOS-1V.
DSLR cameras, the big bulky Nikon and Canon cameras you see photographers and your cousin Mimi rocking at weddings, aren’t going to go away any time soon, but mirrorless cameras, like the excellent Sony A9, have gotten good enough to make the Nikons and Canons of the world scared. So Nikon’s latest full frame…
Nikon is, ostensibly, a remarkable company. Sure, it had to lay off quite a few people last year, and back in February, it cancelled a hotly anticipated line of cameras. But Nikon’s a tech-based company that’s managed to innovate and survive a hundred years. Nikon started as an optics company and has endured as one,…
Iceland’s board of tourism is doing something right because the country has become a vacation hotspot in recent years. Apparently, even the flight up north can be a spectacular experience, as you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the northern lights from 35,000 feet.
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. The longer a camera’s sensor is active, the warmer it gets, adding unwanted electronic noise to an image. You can go shoot in the freezing temperatures of the arctic to solve the problem, or grab…
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). It…
Point-and-shoot cameras are stuck in a bad place between smartphones for most people, and mirrorless shooters for people who care more. Nikon’s new DL range is hoping to change all that.
There are fancy cameras, and then there are flagship professional DSLRs—big super powerful overkill machines designed for ultra-fast performance. Nikon teased its latest monster, the D5, in the fall. Now, it’s been formally introduced.
Every year, Nikon’s Small World in Motion Competition rounds up the best microscopic videos from scientists across the world. The results are always strange, beautiful and oddly compelling. Watch them here.
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.
