The Nikon 1 S1 is targeted at people who want a camera that's as easy to use as a compact,...

Compared to some other mirrorless interchangeable lens camera systems, it's tempting to dismiss the Nikon 1 and its small sensors. But the cameras continue to sell well, and after taking the system in an enthusiast direction with the launch of the V2, Nikon is now also attempting to appeal to a more entry-level demographic with a simplified model, the S1. The suddenly mid-range J-series has also been updated with the launch of the J3.  Read More

The Nikon D600 is a 24.3-megapixel full-frame DSLR

The Nikon D600 was the first full frame DSLR aimed squarely at the enthusiast market, though it was admittedly quickly followed by the Canon 6D. It packs a large sensor into a compact body and comes in at a considerably cheaper price than previous full frame cameras. But is the D600 the right first step into the full frame world for current crop sensor shooters? I recently had the opportunity to spend a bit of quality time with one to find out.  Read More

The recently announced Nikon D5200 looks almost identical to the D5100 it follows, but looks can be deceptive. Inside, the new DX-shooting mid-range DSLR has received several substantial upgrades including the addition of a 24MP CMOS sensor, a significantly upgraded auto-focus system which now boasts 39 AF points, and a new-look user interface.  Read More

The Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR boasts a constant f/4 aperture and promises up to five stops...

The recently announced 70-200 f/4 is an important lens for Nikon – not only does it plug a longstanding gap in the manufacturer's lens lineup, but it's also the debut for the third generation of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology. Considerably smaller and lighter than the f/2.8 alternative, the new lens still boasts a respectable constant f/4 aperture and promises up to five stops of image stabilization.  Read More

The Nikon 1 V2 features a 14.2-million-pixel CX-format CMOS sensor

Nikon has announced a "photographer-friendly" update to its mirrorless 1 System, the Nikon 1 V2. The new camera features a 14.2-million-pixel sensor, adds command and mode dials on the top, a configurable 'F' button, a built-in flash and a DSLR-like front grip, all of which it's hoped will help it appeal to a slightly more enthusiast market.  Read More

The Nikon D600 could make a good back-up camera for pros, or give most enthusiasts all the...

Since the launch of the megapixel-monster that is the D800, there have been rumors that Nikon was set to release a "full-frame camera for the rest of us." Today, after several months of the worst-kept secret in the camera industry (probably since the D800 itself), Nikon has revealed the D600. It's a 24.3-megapixel full-frame DSLR aimed at enthusiasts, with a smaller body and featuring wireless sharing and capture.  Read More

She hasn't got massive hands, the Nikon COOLPIX S01 really is that tiny

Nikon has revealed its smallest-ever compact camera. In a bid to ensure that a dedicated camera can compete for space in your bag or pocket alongside your smartphone, the COOLPIX S01 has been given a body smaller than a credit card (though obviously thicker) while retaining the specifications of a typical, if somewhat mediocre, compact digital camera.  Read More

The Nikon COOLPIX S800c can be used like any Android device to surf the web, run apps and ...

When you picture an Android camera, chances are you're thinking about the one in your smartphone. Nikon is hoping to change that with the release of the COOLPIX S800c, a compact digital camera which is powered by the Android Operating System. When you're not busy taking photographs, the S800c can be used to check Facebook, send emails, run apps and allow you to access the internet via WiFi.  Read More

The near-ubiquitousness of camera-equipped smartphones has seen many ditch their dedicated cameras in favor of the convenience of snapping shots on their phone. But although the quality of the camera in the iPhone has improved over the various iterations of that device, there are still many things a dedicated camera is better at. But you don't have to lug around a fancy DSLR to up your photography game … here are 10 compact cameras that offer something the iPhone can't.  Read More

Nikon has announced a new entry-level addition to its 1 range of interchangeable lens, mirrorless compact cameras. The J2 represents a rather modest upgrade to the specs on last year's J1 model, and is joined by a new 2.5x zoom lens and an underwater case.  Read More
