It is that time of the year again! Official announcements are starting to pour in as we are approaching the biennial Photokina event. After introducing a 105mm lens in late July, Nikon follows up with the new D3400 DSLR and four new lenses. Here is what you must know about them!
Nikon is getting really close to announcing a new DSLR. We are talking about the successor to the D3300, which, as some people say, should have been introduced months ago. Its name has been confirmed by a trusted source, too, so check out the latest details regarding the upcoming Nikon D3400!
Nikon has just introduced a new product. It consists of a telephoto prime, which is actually the brightest of its kind, thanks to an impressive f/1.4 electromagnetic diaphragm. The optic in question is the AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E lens and it will become available on the market sooner than expected.
An interesting decision has been made by Nikon Japan. The company has decided to discontinue the D3300 DSLR in its home country, signalling its intention to launch a successor. Initially believed to be called D3400 and to come at Photokina 2016, it seems like the replacement will be named D3500 and will show up sooner rather than later.
Earth, as seen from space, is probably one of the most impressive things ever. Our planet is absolutely astounding from afar and the latest astronaut to share this awesomeness with us is ESA’s Tim Peake. Here are some of the amazing Earth photos from space captured by the cosmonaut from Earth’s low orbit!
It will be an interesting summer for people who enjoy rumors. This is natural because Photokina 2016 is coming, so we will see the best of the best at the world’s largest digital imaging event. A big surprise for photographers could be the Nikon D820 / D900, which will feature a big-megapixel sensor with 4K video recording capabilities.
Nikon has reportedly patented a 100x optical zoom lens created for compact cameras with 1/2.3-inch-type sensors. The optic has most likely been developed for the replacement to the Coolpix P900, one of the most impressive fixed-lens cameras of recent times. Check out what we know so far about the lens!
Nikon will finally replace the entry-level D3300 DSLR camera with a DX-format image sensor by the end of 2016. The new device is coming this year, but it might not be be called D3400, as previously expected. It appears that the shooter will go on sale by the name of D3500 and with some interesting specifications.
After introducing two versions of the same lens, Nikon will repeat the announcement sometime in the future. Sources are stating that an existing optic will be replaced by two versions: one with, one without Vibration Reduction, just like the recent AF-P Nikkor 18-55mm f/3-5.5.6 zoom. The highlighted product is the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens.
Nikon has patented a new product for its 1-series of mirrorless cameras and lenses. The product in question is a lens and it has been patented in Japan. It consists of a 9mm wide-angle prime lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8, which could be released in the future for the company’s CX-mount mirrorless cameras.
Nikon has already had a great start to 2016. However, the company is expected to continue like this through the summer and to end the year on a high. Multiple new DSLRs could be unveiled in the following months and one of them is the D3400, which will replace the entry-level D3300.
Nikon has issued another service advisory for the D750 DSLR. Industry watchers are well-aware of the camera’s shutter problems, causing it to display unnatural flares in photos. However, only an initial batch was supposed to be affected. Well, Nikon has confirmed that faulty DSLRs have been manufactured in a more extended period.
This might come as a surprise to a lot of people, but Nikon’s image-sharing service still exists. The Japan-based camera maker has just announced that it has revamped its Nikon Image Space website with new features. The renewal of the service brings improved sharing functions and better usability among others.
Nikon has finally unveiled its premium compact camera line-up. The DL18-50, DL24-85, and DL24-500 cameras are official with a 20.8-megapixel 1-inch-type image sensor. They are covering focal lengths from wide-angle to super-telephoto. All shooters are coming this summer with 4K video recording and many other features.
Nikon’s latest superzoom cameras are officially here to provide an extensive list of features in compact and lightweight bodies. The Coolpix A900, B700, and B500 are all featuring extended zoom lenses and they will become available on the market this spring with affordable price tags.
Nikon will finally reveal its line-up of premium compact cameras that will compete against similar models from Canon and Sony. The company will drop the Coolpix branding from these shooters, which will be called DL24-85, DL18-50, and DL24-500. All three units will become official within a few days alongside four other compacts.
It was about time Nikon replaced the D300S, its DX-format flagship DSLR. However, instead of the D400, the Nikon D500 has been announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016. The new model takes on Canon’s 7D Mark II with a slew of impressive features. Here’s everything you need to know about it!
