Packing an ultrazoom like the Nikon Coolpix P100 for a vacation makes plenty of practical sense. You'll be equipped with a 26-678mm telephoto range without sacrificing too much space in your carry-on. But will you regret leaving the DSLR kit at home? Jim Keenan sought an answer to this question as he brought the P100 and a D3 on a trip to China. Take a look at how the ultrazoom fared.
Nikon announces the AF-S Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II super telephoto zoom lens today. It offers pro sports and wildlife photographers a generous telephoto range with a constant f/4 maximum aperture. The new lens also features Nikon's VR II vibration reduction system and is due to be released in late May 2010.
We've already taken a look at the two new lenses Nikon launched for PMA 2010. Now we're scaling things down to give you a quick preview of two of their new compact cameras - the Coolpix P100 ultrazoom and the Coolpix S8000. Nikon's Steve Heiner gives us a video tour of the new features, and we managed to snag some sample images with the new cameras.
Nikon let a group of reporters loose on a crop of newly released Coolpix cameras and wide angle Nikkor lenses on the eve of PMA 2010. We put the Nikkor 24mm f/1.4 and 16-35mm f/4 lenses to work coupled to a D3S. Take a look at our full-res samples from the event.
Nikon introduces two new wide angle Nikkor lenses today - the AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR and the fast AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G ED. The pair of lenses are designed to offer an FX-format photographer more tools for wide angle shooting and more options for low-light situations.
Nikon adds a new member to the Coolpix "P for Performance" series today - the Nikon Coolpix P100. It's the first Coolpix to feature a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, allowing it to shoot up to 10 fps at full resolution. A 26x optical zoom lens puts it just ahead of its 24x predecessor, the Coolpix P90. Full 1080p HD video recording sweetens the deal.
Nikon brings out two more L-series models in the weeks leading up to PMA 2010.
Nikon today announced four new S-series Coolpix cameras. Their "S" stands for "style" and represents a host of features, including long zooms, touch screens, HD video recording capabilities, and sleek new bodies. They're being offered in a variety of colors new to the Coolpix lineup. Read on for the specs and details.
Nikon certainly holds a corner of the digital compact camera market all to itself with the Coolpix S1000pj "projector camera." As soon as it rolled into our office, we had it out on the road for some preliminary shooting - and projecting, of course. Take a look at our first thoughts and sample images.
Nikon has released firmware updates for four of its DSLRs, the D3, D700, D3x and D300S.
Nikon has announced the launch of an AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 ED VR II lens and an updated 2X AF-S teleconverter TC-20E III. The dust and moisture-sealed telephoto lens body is designed to cater to the needs of outdoor and sports photographers. Both products are scheduled for retail availability in January 2010.
The understated style of the Nikon Coolpix S640's exterior lends it to low-profile street photography. Our first impressions of the auto exposure-only S640 have been good - it backs up good performance on the street in bright outdoor light with nice indoor photos as well. Take a look at a couple of sample images and our first take on the S640.
