The zoom is enabled by the pinocchio-style Nikkor ED glass lens on the front of the camera that ranges from a 24mm-equivalent lens when zoomed all the way out to a crazy 2000mm-equivalent lens when zoomed all the way in. Inside the camera is a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor that can capture 7 frames per second in continuous shooting mode. A Dual Detect Optical VR technology offers the equivalent of 5 stops of stabilization to help reduce blur caused by camera shake, something that could ruin your shots when zoomed in at the equivalent of 2000mm. On the back is a swiveling 3-inch 921K-dot LCD screen and a built-in electronic viewfinder with an eye sensor. Other features of the P900 include scene modes, filter effects, macro mode, 1080p HD video recording with stereo audio, time-lapse mode, a Zoom Microphone feature for recording sound from a distance, built-in GPS for geotagging shots, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Probably not shutter lag, but total lag including focusing, which I would imagine is slower at long focal lengths. For my Work im a Canon Shooter but when i travel for pleasure i like to travel very light weight, and a couple years ago i bough a Nikon Coolpix P510 with 42x Zoom, and that little camera its amazing but not perfect, since that time i was wating to upgrade my travel camera but neither this new P900 had the real upgrades that that line needs. I was waiting for this to update a filter treat in the front element to add a little uv filter (very needed!!!), RAW support!
The Fujifilm HS50EXR has a hotshoe (fuji also make TTL flashes for it) filter-thread, RAW support, mic-port and a manual zoom and focus rings. The images that are being posted from this Nikon P900 83x optical ultra-zoom camera are amazing.
The folks at National Geographic just did a solid favor for all the adventurous outdoor photographers out there. After a lot of speculation and a juicy tidbit here and there, a more complete spec list and first photo of the much-anticipated Canon 5D Mark IV has leaked. Recently I got a message from a person who said that they liked my pictures, but unfortunately they don’t have a "photographic eye." This inspired me to write the following article about basic aesthetics and their relationship to photography. The multi-aperture computational camera is an exciting technology that's emerging in the world of photography, and it appears that Nikon wants in. VSCO today announced the launch of its new Open Studio, a free-to-use massive studio space in New York City. If you wanna capture quality product photos on the cheap, this short little DIY tutorial is going to be a great resource.
This photo shows what Sports Illustrated photographer Simon Bruty packed for the Rio 2016 Olympic games, the 8th Summer Games he has covered. Lightroom is a very powerful tool, and this quick timelapse by filmmaker and photographer Bart Oerbekke demonstrates how a series of simple edits were able to really bring one of his landscape photos to life.
Animals stealing action cameras is nothing new—monkeys, seagulls, and foxes have all gotten their 15 minutes of fame this way. Want to see how a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer responds to a request for free images in exchange for "credit" from a major news corporation? News Corp photographer Brett Costello was robbed of $40,000 in camera gear at a cafe in Rio a few days ago.
After showing you how to make a tripod using a piece of string, I’m going to go a little more surreal this time by explaining how an old frying pan can be used to get dramatic low angle images.
I really love the combination of street photography and rain, since rain changes the mood and the city completely. It may be an entry-level camera, but the Nikon D3200 features a 24.2-million-pixel sensor that could provide the sort of image quality demanded by enthusiasts. Nikon’s latest camera releases are a sign of things to come, with the company throwing down a weighty megapixel gauntlet to its rivals. Like the D3100, the new D3200 has a small body and a simple, beginner-friendly layout, being aimed at those trying out a DSLR for the first time, and ‘the family’.
Using full-resolution, 12-bit raw+JPEG capture, a 4GB card is full after approximately 125 shots.
Like the Nikon 1 cameras and the professional Nikon D4, the D3200 features the company’s latest Expeed 3 processor, which provides high-speed operation and enhanced image processing. Like the D3100, though, the D3200 has a guide mode to walk beginners through some photographic basics. There are some neat accessories available separately for the D3200, including the ME-1 microphone and the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter. The image processing that creates a JPEG file, and certainly on an entry-level camera like the D3200, is designed to produce a bright and punchy print-ready image. JPEG files receive a degree of tonal compression, noise reduction, colour alteration and sharpening, all of which make an image look good straight out of the camera. The above image, taken at ISO 200 in good light, shows the difference in overall quality between raw and JPEG. Lightweight does not mean poor quality, however, as the D3200’s body is a sturdy, plastic construction with faux leather hand and thumbgrips, just like the D5100, which is the next model up in the range. With little direct access to key controls on the body, most (including white balance, autofocus and metering) are instead found via the ‘i’ button in the quick menu. Like all Nikon DSLRs, the D3200 uses the standard Nikon F mount, so it is compatible with a host of lenses.
Given that the target market for this camera is ‘beginners’, most users are likely to stick to auto white balance. All the white balance settings can be tweaked, although a quicker method for precise colour is taking a manual white balance reading. As on the D3100, the D3200’s TTL metering makes use of a 420-pixel RGB sensor to provide information from the scene for the metering modes. A camera with 24.2 million pixels on an APS-C-sized sensor is bound to impress us with its ability to resolve detail, and the D3200 does not disappoint.
As the camera uses the company’s latest Expeed 3 processor, we would also have high hopes for its ability to handle noise effectively. It is a pleasant surprise, then, that despite the increased number of pixels, performance in low light is still good.
As an entry-level model, the D3200 uses a simplified Multi-CAM 1000FX autofocus sensor with 11 individually selectable points. When using the viewfinder, the AF system works on a phase-detection basis, with the active AF point illuminated red in the viewfinder (chosen via the D-pad in single-point mode).


Other options include 3D tracking (great for videos as well as still images), dynamic area and auto, all of which use the 11 points to gather focus information. The screen is bright enough for live view, image playback and to navigate the menu, but users may struggle to see it clearly in bright, direct sunlight.
As the D3200 features a new high-resolution sensor, I have been particularly interested to establish its dynamic range. In raw files, it looks as though images show a wider dynamic range than those from the D3100, by around 2EV. The next most affordable APS-C-format camera with a like-for-like pixel count is Sony’s Alpha 65. Nikon insists that the D3200 does not replace the D3100, so this older and more affordable camera is an alternative. The nikon D3200 handles in a very similar way to the less expensive D3100, so the extra money is really paying for the increased pixel count. The retouch menu offers a host of in-camera edits, including D-Lighting, trim, monochrome, filter effects, straighten, distortion control, perspective control, selective colour and image overlay.
The power of the built-in flash can be controlled in auto TTL using exposure compensation from +1EV to -3EV, or manually from full power down to 1?32 power.
The WU-1a may well be the standout accessory given that it was launched alongside the camera, but there are many other useful compatible accessories. The direct control accesses single-frame shooting, as well as the 4fps high-speed burst, self-timer, delayed remote, quick-response remote and quiet shutter release. Live view offers a good alternative to the viewfinder, providing up to 20x magnification for precise focusing and continuous contrast-detection AF in video recording.
That has got to be one of the most dissapointing and worthless reviews of any piece of euipment I have seen in many many years.
For a camera of the cost of the Hasselblad I would have expected something more in-depth and substantial.
Focal length are only relevant to the sensor size, which in this case is 5.6 times small than full-frame. The camera has enough in-camera settings and HDR (High Dynamic Range) options that make RAW not necessary. In fact, this camera is so sharp, has such incredible image quality, and awesome colors that its 83x (2000mm) performance can be easily extended to 4000mm while still maintaining its incredible resolution and image quality. The lens is so big, comes with a professional DSLR type ED lens optics, and it gathers such so much more light on it small image sensor that Nikon can claim a low light performance rating of ISO 3200.
They put every US Geological Survey (USGS) topographical map from across the United States on one easy-to-navigate site and made them easy to print out at home.
A 60TB drive would be massive by any standard, but the latest Seagate SAS drive is mind-blowing for one other very important reason: it's a solid state drive.
In it, you see how an $8 IKEA table turns into a full-fledged product photo booth with just a few modifications and some creative foam board placement.
Louis Post-Dispatch who won the Pulitzer Prize with his paper this year for his coverage of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Then yesterday, while covering an event at the Olympics yesterday, Costello spotted the thief pretending to be him. Photographer Aaron Anderson has put together a lighting tutorial that will show you how he uses one light, a black flag, and a white card to capture beautiful, dramatic headshots. The Canon 1D X Mark II squares off against the Nikon D5 in a series of tests including sports shooting and hand-held low-light high ISO street photography. Earlier this year, we saw the FX-format (full-frame) D800 raise the bar with 36.3 million pixels, and it proved to be the best full-frame sensor we have tested so far. It begs the question whether the target user is ever likely to make the most of such a large number of pixels, and furthermore, whether the available kit lenses can do the sensor justice. Nikon is keen to illustrate that such large files enable the cropping of images while maintaining enough quality to produce a good level of detail.
Using a high-speed UHS-I SD card, the continuous frame rate of the D3200 reaches 4fps for a five-frame burst, after which the buffer takes 7secs to fully clear and enable another full-performance burst.
This time around the guide has been enhanced and expanded for more in-depth advice, and is positioned on the shooting-mode dial for quick access. The ME-1 is attached via the external microphone input for improved audio quality over the in-camera microphone.
Viewed at 100%, it can be seen that the JPEG compression process causes a loss of shadow detail and less tonal information, that the smoothing from noise reduction impacts on the level of fine detail, and that colours are very bright and not always ‘lifelike’. Indeed, at 505g including card and battery, the camera equals the D3100 as the lightest in the Nikon DSLR line-up. Interestingly, though, other regularly used controls do get a direct-access button, including drive mode, for which high-speed shooting and quiet shutter are available.
By default, auto image rotation is deactivated, and portrait-format images must be rotated manually.
This is achieved in the same as on any other Nikon DSLR, via the main menu, which is a little slower than some other systems.
The metering sensor holds its own among the immediate competition, but cannot match the sophisticated RGB sensors of the more expensive Nikon cameras. We show the section of the resolution chart where the camera starts to fail to reproduce the lines separately.
Using the 18-55mm VC kit lens, at ISO 100 the camera reaches the 30 marker on our resolution charts, which is equivalent to class-leading APS-C-format cameras such as the Sony Alpha 77 and even full-frame models like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. The first thing to note is that the native sensitivity runs from ISO 100-6400, like that of the Nikon D800, which uses the same processor, and the range can be extended up to ISO 12,800. Only the extended ISO 12,800 setting should be completely avoided, as it demonstrates a severe drop in image quality with obvious luminance and chroma noise littering the frame. These points are in three groups in the central portion of the frame, with the centre point being a more sensitive cross-type. Handily, in this mode the AF point can be set to anywhere in the frame, which is great for off-centre subjects. It is a 3in LCD type with 921,000 dots, which is a big improvement over the 230,000-dot screen of the D3100, although it is not articulated like that of the D5100.


The viewfinder is a pentamirror type with a 95% field of view and 0.8x magnification, which is the same as on the D3100. Continuous AF is available via the contrast-detection system, which is very handy for keeping up with moving subjects.
For instance, we expected the dynamic range of the D800 to be narrower than its predecessor, but it turned out to be even more extensive despite the huge increase in pixels (and therefore smaller photosites). This makes a dynamic range around 13EV and represents a great improvement, and close to the performance of cameras higher up the range. Both this and the D3200 have plastic bodies, and the handling is quite similar – both lack a top LCD screen and have no direct access on the body for many key controls. The build and handling of the two are very similar, with the big difference being the new sensor in the D3200, which is so impressive in terms of resolved detail, control of noise and dynamic range. However, in the long run, such a high resolution will be as likely to frustrate the ‘family’ user as give them pleasure once all the disk space is taken up on their computer and external drives need to be purchased. Crisp and punchy images with a wide dynamic range can be produced on a large scale thanks to the high resolution.
Nikon recommends the ME-1, the small size of which complements the compact size of the camera. Handily, the mode is linked to the attached lens and the metered exposure of the current scene reflects in the on-screen aperture, shutter speed, white balance, exposure compensation or ISO. These include the ML-L3 infrared remote control, GPS unit GP-1, ME-1 microphone and MC-DC2 remote cord. Last Friday, Carson was contacted by what appears to be a CBS account on Twitter that regularly Tweets requests for image usage. Incredibly creative, he frequently manages to surprise and delight us with his unusual portrait assignments. Alternatively, the D3200 may turn out to be a lightweight and cost-effective back-up for those who already own an enthusiast-level camera. This matches the output of the best APS-C sensor currently available, which is used in the Sony Alpha 65, Alpha 77 and NEX-7. The WU-1a is a USB dongle for wireless communication between the camera and a smart mobile device, enabling wireless file transfer and remote camera control. In contrast, the unedited raw file lacks punch in areas of clarity and colour, while luminance noise is evident in shadow areas.
In manual mode, holding down the exposure-compensation button switches the dial to aperture control rather than shutter speed. Another direct control activates live view, which handily allows magnification to aid precise focusing.
For example, in sunny conditions I find somewhere between the cool rendition of AWB and warmer rendition of the sunny preset is best.
A single custom reading can be saved at any one time, while more advanced Nikon models allow up to four readings at any one time for quick access.
All the colour modes can be adjusted for sharpening, contrast, brightness, saturation and hue, while the monochrome setting offers filter effects, which is fun. As exposure compensation is easily altered via the direct control next to the shutter-release button, should the conditions be too bright or too dark, I kept to evaluative metering for most of this test. The higher the number visible in these images, the better the camera’s detail resolution is at the specified sensitivity setting. In these images, luminance noise is visible when viewed at 100%, but much less distinguishable at 50%, which is around the same file size as the D3100 at 100%.
All in all, though, the level of detail that can be resolved and the ability to control noise by resizing images is where the D3200 shines.
The more demanding action photographer is, of course, better served by a more sophisticated set-up on a more expensive camera. However, the performance of this AF is a tad slower than the phase-detection system, certainly in low light where the camera often hunts for the subject.
A mini HDMI output provides direct connection to TV, and up to 20mins record time is possible for each video file. It seems that Nikon has worked hard on the sensor to be able to offer more pixels while improving dynamic range. The main difference is that Alpha 65 is slightly more expensive, has a translucent mirror that enables faster frame rates and an electronic viewfinder in place of an optical type. It is a case of paying a little extra to get better quality images, but the resulting files take up much more space on the computer. Perhaps the family photos may start making their way from the computer screen to the walls, or Nikon may just be surprised that the D3200 proves popular with ‘enthusiasts’ who opt to buy the camera as a lightweight back-up for their existing model.
In fact, this camera can capture incredible distant shots for nature magazines that most professional cameras cannot focus on. In either case, this is the most affordable camera around that offers such a high resolution. Being fussy, I often tweak the colour of images straight out of the camera to get them just right. The P900 redefines our conception of small sensor, ultra-zoom cameras by putting professional quality optical performance within the reach of the average consumer. It is safe to assume, then, that any future replacements for models higher up in the series will at the very least feature the same sensor.
Whether such a high pixel count in a camera of this level is able to produce good-quality images, however, is another matter entirely. These explain which exposure setting should be adjusted for the given scene, which is linked to the current exposure settings on the camera and what lens is attached.
Not only can files be cropped while maintaining a good level of detail, but if you reduce the print size from a full-resolution file to match a full-sized print of a camera such as the D3100, noise is less obvious. In short, higher resolution affords greater flexibility for cropping and high-quality printing.
