Photographers who want to shoot while snorkeling, rafting, skiing, or just splashing about in the water, are normally limited to using a tough compact camera, or shelling out for an expensive underwater-housing for their DSLR. The Nikon 1 AW1 has been designed to change that. It's claimed to be the world's first commercially available digital interchangeable lens camera which is waterproof and shockproof.  Read More

The Nikon Coolpix P7800 and S02 offer modest upgrades to previous models

Nikon has announced two new updates to its line-up of Coolpix cameras. The P7800, which introduces an electronic viewfinder to the enthusiast-focused P7000 series, and the S02, which brings an improved resolution and Full HD video recording to Nikon's line of itty-bitty point-and-shoots.  Read More

Nikon D7100 vs. Canon 70D

When the Canon EOS 70D was announced, it wasn't just as a replacement for the aging 60D, it was also as a direct response to Nikon's D7100. Both cameras use APS-C sensors and are aimed squarely at enthusiasts with better build quality and more features than entry-level models. Let's take a look at how the two cameras stack up against each other.  Read More

It's no secret the compact camera market is taking a beating. Yes, people are taking more photos than ever, but not on dedicated point-and-shoots. Increasingly they're reaching for their smartphone when a photographic opportunity arises. Nikon President, Makoto Kimura, told Bloomberg his company is well aware of this trend and wants to create new products aimed at this bigger market, hinting at the possibility of a smartphone by saying the company is considering a "non-camera consumer product."  Read More

Gizmag spends a bit of time testing the Nikon Coolpix A

At first glance, the Nikon Coolpix A looks like a typical, if slightly retro, compact camera. But, it actually contains a large APS-C sensor, the same size found in most DSLRs. It also boasts a relatively speedy f/2.8 18.5-mm fixed lens, which should enable it to take photographs rivaling the quality of much bigger cameras. After getting a brief pre-release hands-on with the camera, we've now had the chance to spend some quality time with it, to see if it lives up to the potential.  Read More

Photographers using the Nikon 1 system will soon have another option when it comes to shooting portraits with a shallow depth-of-field, after Nikon announced the release of the 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 lens. The new lens also boasts a string of enthusiast-friendly firsts for the 1 NIKKOR line-up, including Nano Crystal Coat, Silent Wave Motor and a manual focus ring.  Read More

The Nikon COOLPIX A features a large DX-format 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor

After the success of the Fujifilm X100, the Sony RX100 and the Canon G1 X, Nikon has finally embraced the idea of putting a large sensor in a compact-sized camera. The result is the Nikon COOLPIX A – which packs a 16.2-megapixel DX-format sensor and fixed 18.5mm lens into a surprisingly small body. Gizmag got to spent some hands-on time with the newly-announced camera ahead of its release.  Read More

The Nikon D7100 has a specially designed DX-format 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor

Nikon has revealed a new enthusiast-level flagship DX-format camera, the 24.1-megapixel Nikon D7100. The much-awaited update to the aging D7000 has a professional-level 51-point AF system, and continuous full resolution shooting at 6 fps. Notably, the camera also does away with the optical low pass filter – meaning it should be able to capture sharper detail than cameras with a similar resolution.  Read More

The AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR will ship with a 1.25X teleconverter.

Nikon has revealed a pair of new lenses which sit at opposite ends of the focal length spectrum. The NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED zoom offers an ultra-wide angle on FX cameras and is suited to large group shots and architecture; while the NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E is designed to cater to any super-telephoto needs you might have … if you've got the US$17,900 budget to buy one.  Read More

The Nikon COOLPIX AW110 is shockproof up to 2 meters (6.6 ft)

Nikon has revealed a pair of cameras which have been designed to withstand anything your action-loving lifestyle, or your children, can throw at them. The family-friendly COOLPIX S31 can survive being dropped on the floor (or in a swimming pool) by your accident-prone children, while the even tougher COOLPIX AW110 is waterproof to an impressive 59 feet and shockproof to 6.6 feet.  Read More
