Quite a few people end up here to try to get answers to their “million-dolar” questions, such as: “Is my D50 motorized or not?”, “Can my D100 focus and meter with manual focus lenses?”, “Is my D3100 geo-tagging (GPS) capable?”, and so on. I have concocted a compatibility table that pretends to answer these questions all at once, and is available in both HTML and PDF format. I hope it helps :)
The Nikon F-Mount was launched with the Nikon F camera in 1959 and has remained virtually unchanged since, making it the only lens mount still in production over 5 decades after its introduction. The camera mount comes essentially in 3 flavors: F, AI-S and AF, with some minor adaptations for particular cameras, mostly the digital entry-level models, which feature 2 extra screws and the minimum aperture confirmation notch, discussed later on.
Today, Nikon replaced the Nikon D5200 – launched on November 5, 2013 – with the D5300.The D5300 is a far more significant update than it’s predecessor, which was – as I pointed out in a previous article, virtually indistinguishable from the D3200.

With the launch of the D610 Nikon replaces the D600 after a mere 13 months, allegedly to finally solve the oil and dust problem that has been plaguing the latter virtually since its introduction. The new camera’s “suggested” retail price of $ 2.000 is slightly inferior to its predecessor, which launched on September 13, 2012 with a SRP of $ 2.100.

Nikon are the hallmark of engineering prowess. In terms of IQ they have been beating the competition for the last half decade, or so. There are 9 Nikon cameras in the DXO top-20 and Nikkor lenses typically get raging reviews. So why the company has been scrambling around new product strategies, recently, and why have the shares dropped off so dramatically? The answer is as simple as complicated.
One of the first things I did upon the arrival of my D7100, was to check if it would properly work with my GPS, because the one thing that I have been missing dearly during my recent travels was the ability to properly geo-locate my shots. Here’s what I have found.

All flagship and semi-pro Nikon cameras since the D1X and D200, mid range models since the D90 and “Baby-Nikons” since the D3100 are capable of automatically recording geo-referenced meta-data into image headers (Exif), a practice popularly known as “geo-tagging”.
