With the D700 now being fazed-out, semi-pros and advanced amateurs are left with two full-frame cameras to choose from in Nikon’s mid-range price bracket, the D800E and D800 costing $ 3.300 and $ 3.000 respectively, while the D600 will set you back $ 2.100, a premium of $ 400 over the aging D300S APS-C camera. Even in the absence of independent tests of the D600, it is interesting to compare it against the D800, to figure out how much more camera $ 900 buys us, and ask ourselves if it is worth spending the roughly 50% extra.
Nikon Inc. is asking your cooperation in connection with a voluntary recall of certain lot numbers of its Nikon Model EN-EL15 rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. The battery pack can experience a short circuit causing it to overheat and possibly causing the outside casing to become deformed, posing a potential hazard to consumers.
I am not going to nag about how my search traffic has dropped off to virtually nothing. I'm sure I deserve it. One can hardly pretend to know better than a couple of hundreds of Google engineers, right?
Today, Adobe published the Camera RAW and DNG Converter 6.7 Final Releases. With the imminent release of Photoshop 6 and ACR 7, the 6.7 FR is the last Camera Raw update for CS5, and does unfortunately not include support for the new Nikon D3200.
With the launch of this lens Nikon completes it AF-S full-frame (FX) line-up of relatively fast and reasonably affordable f/1.8G primes: 28mm, 50mm and 85mm.
Today, April 19, Nikon launched its new, “entry-level” D3200 camera, a dedicated wireless mobile adapter and the full-frame 28 mm f/1.8G wide angle lens. The D3200 is Nikon’s third camera launch in 2012 – after the D4 and D800/800E – and most likely the penultimate, short of the D300S replacement.
Adobe Labs has released the Camera Raw and DNG converter Release Candidate v.6.7, while Nikon in recent weeks has released updates for View NX2, Capture NX2 and Camera Control pro. All these new releases add support for the Nikon D4, D800 and D800E and now all run natively on 64-bit systems. Download here.
