Feb. 2, 2010. Nikon officially launched 7 new Coolpix cameras, with rumors about more news to come shortly. In this article we take a peak at the top of the line P100, and discuss back side illumination CMOS technology, launched in this very camera.
Can I use manual focus lenses on my Nikon DSLR? Yes, you can! Virtually all Nikkor lenses produced since the introduction of AI in 1977 can be mounted and used on virtually all Nikon cameras produced since 1977.
With 2010 recently started, and many of us awaiting at least one important Nikon launch this year, I’m looking back on a decade that has seen jaw-dropping advancements in photography hardware.
Comparing all the mayor contenders in the RAW conversion field leaves us with only one conclusion: there is no real "champion". Some images are better off with program x, while others with program y. However, and in spite of its shortcomings and elevated price, the Bridge/Photoshop/ACR/DNG Converter combo is the more obvious choice for those who routinely convert large amounts of RAW images.
It is fairly common to see people desperately searching the Web, because their version of Photoshop, Lightroom or Elements refuses to open the RAW files of their new camera, mostly generating either a "File not supported" or a far more scary "This file may be corrupted" message.The same may happen in Nikon Capture, and in both cases you need to update the ACR plugin or even upgrade your software.
Today, Nikon launched their long awaited D3000 entry level and D300s semi professional cameras. I resume the specs of both cameras, as taken from their respective US product brochures.
Professional and semi-professional* Nikon cameras with a 10-pin remote terminal are capable of automatically writing geo-referential meta-data in image headers (Exif), popularly known as "geo-tagging”. When a device records georeferential meta-data in real-time, as is the case here, we refer to it as "instantaneous geo-tagging".
