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

By - February 22, 2013 16 Pictures
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

Nikon announces S1 and J3 1-Series cameras

By - January 14, 2013 16 Pictures
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

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

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

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
