    Nikon Makes New Coolpix Line Official

    Hmm, these look familiar. Oh yes, they were leaked earlier today. Most of the info you want (prices, megapixels, lenses) is there, but there's a bit of new info here as well. Read More

    Nikon's New Coolpix Lineup Leaked

    It seems that a certain website decided to go live with some new Nikon cameras before the news was fully baked. They’ve since taken the post down, but Nikon Rumors managed to snag most of the content. So what’s Nikon got in store for us this season? Read More

  • Teardown Of Nikon D7000 Shows Off The Well-Packed Interior Of A Modern DSLR

    Teardown Of Nikon D7000 Shows Off The Well-Packed Interior Of A Modern DSLR

    I wouldn't say this teardown of a D7000 is of particular interest over, say, a Canon or Pentax, but you don't often get to see brand-new DSLRs cracked open like this. When you think about it, there really is quite a lot of computing power packed into these guys. Being able to process and write thirty 16-megapixel RAW or JPEG images at five or six per second is a serious task. Go ahead, open 30… Read More

  • Nikon Wants To Turn Your DSLR Viewfinder Into… A Projector

    Nikon Wants To Turn Your DSLR Viewfinder Into… A Projector

    This patent, filed by Nikon in Japan, is really baffling me right now. The idea is that the viewfinder or eyepiece would serve not only as a something to put your eye to and frame shots, but also as a pico projector. Isn't that a little dangerous? Read More

  • Nikontrol 3K Tethers Your Camera To Your PC For Free

    Nikontrol 3K Tethers Your Camera To Your PC For Free

    Nikon publishes a program called Camera Control Pro, a software program intended to help the studio photographer by allowing them to tether their camera to a computer. The problem is, Camera Control Pro doesn't support some of the latest cameras, and it has a $150 price tag. This inspired Nikontrol 3K, a free program that does basically the same thing, but for free. Read More

  • Nikon Working On Combo Manual-Electronic Zoom For Its Lenses

    Nikon Working On Combo Manual-Electronic Zoom For Its Lenses

    This is kind of a cool technology Nikon is patenting here. I personally like to do the manual zoom thing when shooting DSLR video, but the slow creeping zoom or quick min-max possible with an electronic zoom rocker are both also valuable tools. As far as I know, there aren't any consumer cameras that implement both, though I could be wrong about that. At any rate, Nikon is looking into it. Read More

  • Nikon Gives You A Chance To Shoot With A Nat Geo Photographer

    Nikon Gives You A Chance To Shoot With A Nat Geo Photographer

    This would be one of those "once in a lifetime" opportunities. Nikon has announced a contest that will allow an aspiring photographer to go on an exclusive photo excursion with a National Geographic photographer. Apparently they'll also throw in a D7000 in order to make sure you're ready to take some great pictures. Read More

  • The Luddite's Gift Guide

    The Luddite's Gift Guide

    With all the hur-de-hur about technological gadgets on these very pages, I submit to you that there is one subset of the community that is underserved by our constant reportage: the Luddite. To that end, I propose a short exploration of the Luddite's psyche and suggest a few possible items for their consumption this Holiday period. The term Luddite comes from Ned Ludd, the mythical or at least… Read More

  • Review: Nikon Coolpix P7000

    Review: Nikon Coolpix P7000

    Short Version: It’s no secret that I love photography. I’m also very attached to my DSLR. I rarely leave the house without it and consider it to be an important part of my life. That being said, I’ve found something that makes me leave my DSLR at home. I’ve finally found a camera that’s small enough to slip into a pocket but still has the features and qualities that… Read More
