This entry was posted in Nikon and tagged cmos dx sensor, compact, image stabilization, nikkor, Nikon, pop-up flash. Nikon introduces the latest D-SLR to its mid-range DX-format line-up, the 24.1 megapixel Nikon D5200, designed to bring out your creative side. Marina Gurevich, Product Manager for Nikon Europe, says: “The inspiring Nikon D5200 is ideal for those who are passionate about photography and want to experiment with the camera’s superior features. The third camera in its series, following the D5000 and the D5100, the Nikon D5200 offers a massive leap in image-quality.
The Nikon D5200 shares an AF system, metering sensor and scene recognition with the Nikon D7000 series, giving this camera a new level of performance and much enhanced image quality. The Nikon D5200’s versatile 7.5cm (3-in) vari-angle LCD monitor provides the ultimate freedom and flexibility to take beautiful shots and movies from virtually any position.
Wirelessly transmitting images from your camera to an Apple™ or Android™ smart device is possible by using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter.
16 Scene modes: Automatically adjusts camera settings, including Picture Controls and Active D-Lighting, for optimal results. It seems it is gonna cost 30% more (US$200) than the D5100 at launch, and for that you get one extra top button, a stereo mic, more AF points, more MP, more fps. Stick with black, use white for girls, and make limited metal series for who have too much money to spend. Because there have been—and there continue to be—a lot of extraordinary women photographers. So I hope you’re not implying that women are less creative or less anything simply because of their sex. The only difference i make among sexes is their role in reproduction of the specie, period. White is simply statistically more appeasing to girls’ tastes for gadget colours than black. You mix difference in tastes due to culture, with personal capabilities related to the sexuality, and worse you project your misunderstanding onto others people thinking. By the way, do you realize that you live in a world built, constructed, maintained by men ? No dedicated controls for that upgraded AF though, would’ve been nice to see the U1 and U2 modes or an extra Fn button since a lot of go-to settings like ISO are also buried in menus. Wow with these specs pretty much guarantee that the the D7000 sucessor is g0ing to inherit some of the more advanced features from the D300 line and be the top end DX.
Nikon already has three FX cameras to meet the high end needs of professionals, starting with the affordable D600 ($2099), the D800 ($2999), and the D4 ($5999). I’m guessing that there will be not bodies prices between D600 and D800 and D800 and D4.
Michael, I think Nikon will drop the price of the D600 within the next 6 months by at least $200 to $1899 to make room for a second 24 MP full frame camera vis–a–vis the D900.
The specs on the D600 looks as if Nikon priced it intentionally and temporarily a little higher than it should so as to make some extra profit.
Not bad, but which nikon camera cant use just a wireless remote, which one actually needs something to plug into the camera, cause I have had the same remote for all my cameras and the camera recognized it, d40, d40x, d5000 and now the d7000.
There is almost no info (hands-on, videos, images) available for the new D5200 online – it seems that many major websites did not even get a press releases. The video is so bad (bouncing all over the place and panning back and forth before focus is achieved) that I had to turn it off. The faster fps in a lightly camera body and smaller pixel pitch 3.8?m, that is no doubt, it must be larger vibrations and worse image-blurring. I do not understand that Nikon brought the 5 fps blindly placed into a 3.8?m sensor in a so light camera body. Looks like it is higher mega pixels, but is actually the vibrational image-blurring increased and sharpness drops, well then what did helpful to consumer? I believe that the d5100 is a better camera than the d5200, despite the d5100 AF is no 39-point. Check out the specs of the D5200 again and change your mind, or else give us the reason why the D5100 is better! Yep it does, I think it’s an awesome addition compared to the basic black and recently added red.
Consider these things before just assuming 24 was chosen because it is some magic number and the most aesthetically pleasing. So now we’re in the digital age, we just need to double the digital memory storage size, which continually gets cheaper over time. The problem with higher frame rates for movies is that we counter-intuitively need to see blur for us to perceive the action as reality.
Douglas Trumbull, who did the special effects for 2001 and was also responsible for the large format Showscan has proposed that variable frame rates be used.
So they actually got it right 85 years ago — 24fps still seems like the ideal speed for narrative films. Nikon brings most of what's great about the popular and capable D90 to a better price point with the Nikon D5000. Since the Nikon D5000's 12.3-megapixel CMOS sensor is said to be the same as the D90's, we expect it to have excellent imaging characteristics.
HD movie mode is the second major feature of the Nikon D5000, capturing 1,280 x 720 resolution movies at 24 frames per second. The Nikon D5000 will be the first video-recording digital SLR to ship with an articulating LCD.
For optical viewfinder shooting, which tests considerably faster than Live View, the Nikon D5000 uses the company's diamond-shaped 11-point AF array, whose results are complemented with data from the camera's 420-point exposure system.
Other features from the D90 make it into the Nikon D5000, including Auto Active D-Lighting, In-camera retouching, and Picture Control. GPS geo-tagging is now easier as well, thanks to the accessory port built into the Nikon D5000, designed to work with the optional GP-1 GPS Unit, which automatically records time and position data with each photograph.
Nikon brings most of what's great about the popular and capable D90 to a better price point with the Nikon D5000.
Also like the D60, the Nikon D5000 does not have the mechanical AF connection between the lens and body, so older screw-type autofocus lenses won't autofocus with the Nikon D5000; only the more modern electronically coupled lenses will work. From the top we get a better look at the AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens, which features Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology.
The articulating LCD's body is hinged at the bottom, which leaves room for the usual set of buttons down the left side of the Nikon D5000.
Finally, the power of a Nikon D600 24.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 24-85mm sensor in a compact, streamlined HD-SLR body.
If you’ve been looking to take your passion to the next level with full-frame HD-SLR performance, your wait is over.
Passionate photographers who seek exceptional full-frame, high-resolution performance rely on Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs. One of the keys to capturing razor-sharp images and HD videos—whether shooting through the viewfinder or with the LCD monitor—is a fast, precise autofocus system, and the Nikon D600 24.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 24-85mm has one of the best. The D600 delivers consistently beautiful images and HD videos, thanks to Nikon’s intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II.
Nikon is committed to developing HD-SLRs that empower and inspire filmmakers and video enthusiasts, and the Nikon D600 24.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 24-85mm is proof of that commitment.
With Wi-Fi compatibility, the Nikon D600 24.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 24-85mm makes sharing photos even easier. If you enjoyed this post, please consider leaving a comment or subscribing to the RSS feed to have future articles delivered to your feed reader.
Nikon today announced its new interchangeable lens Nikon 1 J2, and it has several improvements compared to the older J1 version. The new camera also adds two important features, including Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector.
The four original shooting modes on the previous version of the Nikon 1 are now joined by a new Creative mode. The J2 camera promises the world's fastest autofocusing and its image sensor supports an ISO range of 100- 3200 with a Hi 1 option of ISO 6400. Both the D3 and D300 are pro-grade cameras, and share many of the same revolutionary features.
Nikon's D300 displaces the D200 at the top of the prosumer DX lineup, but it does not replace it. The Nikon D300 also has Live View, in-camera Lateral Chromatic Aberration Correction, a self-cleaning sensor, and optic-by-optic autofocus fine-tuning, plus the ability to upgrade to eight-frames-per-second with the purchase of a battery grip, all sure to be popular with D200 fans.
Shipping as of November 2007, with an expected retail price of $1,800, D200 owners will be on familiar ground, investing a little more money for a lot more camera.
There are a few limitations to what it can do compared to what we heard when the Nikon D300 was first announced. But these aren't reasons to discount the Nikon D300, which is one of the most capable and well-designed digital SLRs made.
I'll try to hit on a lot of the Nikon D300's major points, but this is just the User Report, so there's not as much room or time as this significant digital SLR camera deserves.
From the front we can see the slightly more organic curves and a restyled red accent on the grip. If you look in the lower right corner of this picture, you'll see another thoughtful contour that makes it more comfortable as your left hand cradles the Nikon D300 to reach out to hold the lens body. The back has the same number of components in familiar places, but the purpose and name of a few have changed. On top we have only minor style changes, with a trend toward oval and round buttons on the D300 in place of the oblong buttons on the D200. Though I still prefer a bright LED over Nikon's combination of LCD and LED, the new Multi-point AF array works well with the new 51-point AF system.
The new LCD has a 170 degree viewing angle, and offers a 100% view, whether you're looking at captured images or framing in Live View mode. Though Nikon has been criticized by some for having fewer AF-points on their pro cameras when compared to Canon, Nikon's new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF system will silence the critics. The big story with the new autofocus system, however, is its intelligent integration with data from the Scene Recognition System metering to enhance subject tracking.
Though having 51 AF points is great, focus acquisition in Auto-area AF mode on the Nikon D300 is quite a bit slower than it is on the Nikon D3. Overall, I've found the 51-point AF to be quite useful, especially when handing the Nikon D300 to an amateur to take a shot of me with someone else. So the Nikon D300 has a new system called AF fine tune, where the camera can store adjustments for up to 12 lenses. The D300 also provides up to a 10x zoom in Live View mode, providing excellent focus discrimination when focusing manually.
Both the new Nikons and Canons include the ability to control the camera from a computer remotely, and that includes receiving a Live View image from the camera. Still, they've raised the ISO for the D300, ranging from 200 to 3,200, plus Lo-1 (100) and Hi-1 (6,400).
As I mentioned above, however, that six frames goes down to 2.66 when you shoot in 14-bit RAW mode. One of my favorite aspects of Nikon shutters is their sound, and the D300 doesn't disappoint, sounding a lot like film cameras of old.
I'm cautious about leaving something like Active D-Lighting on at all times when shooting JPEG only, but looking at our test shots, I might be persuaded to leave it in Normal mode all the time on the D300.
Our daylight test shots show an increase in shadow detail and contrast with near objects, while maintaining highlight detail. The reason it's called a Multi-Power Battery Pack is that takes other kinds of batteries, including 8 AA cells, and an EN-EL4a, the same lithium-ion battery that the Nikon D3 and D2x use.
Despite the new dust cleaning system, many of my Gallery shots have some prominent hunks of dust after several weeks of shooting in the lab.
The Nikon D300's incredible sophistication kept it in the lab longer than most recent SLRs, because there are so many interesting and unique modes to explore and test. I stayed out late one night, shooting at a local town, trying to find a decent sunset in the heavily-treed North Georgia area; then got up dark and early the next morning to explore how the same town looked at sunrise.
The Nikon D300 was an able companion, just the camera I'd want if my camera was my main source of income.
When it comes to focusing in single-point mode, the Nikon D300 is fast and capable, and the camera serves up images with great speed, and more flourish than even the D200, thanks to the gorgeous 900,000 pixel LCD. It's not quite a fair comparison to put the 10-megapixel Canon 40D up against the 12-megapixel Nikon D300, but they are the two top contenders in this space. However, if you're willing to take the time to learn, just as I said about the D200, the Nikon D300 will be a faithful, eager, and ingenious servant to your photographic endeavors.
I am disappointed that the useful 51-point AF system isn't as fast as it could be, but when you consider what it takes to look at 51 points with an affordable processor, you just forgive that and move on, switching to single point when speed is important.
We have spent a lot of time looking at the Nikon D300, taking over 2.5GB of photos that you can peruse in the Samples tab.
My favorite part about taking pictures with the Nikon D300 is knowing that with just a quick check of the settings and careful attention to composition, I'm going to get a great shot. Nikon has established itself as the premier digital SLR manufacturer in just a few short years, and I'm hoping that the new optics I've mentioned are a sign of more to come.
In machinery field, there have been radical changes and digital cameras have turn into the burning block in the digital world. Combining both high-resolution performance and a wide ISO sensitivity range has finally become a reality. Produce to your exacting vision when working in manual mode, controlling aperture, ISO, AF and shutter speed. An improved 51- point AF system with 15 Cross Type AF sensors, versatile AF area modes and superb AF detection in even the dimmest lighting deliver immediate, pinpoint focus.


EXPEED 3 is so powerful that it handles data-intensive tasks such as Full-HD video recording at 30p with ease. Visitors to the website can access a variety of enlightening articles and educational videos.
EXPEED 2, Nikon’s new image processing engine, assures breathtakingly rich image quality, managing color, contrast, exposure and noise.
I am not a pro by any means but I have used many different D-SLRs including Canon (40D, T2i, XSi) and Nikon (D90, D5000). It is one heck of a camera which can certainly compete against the best in its class (Canon T1i, T2i, Nikon D5000). That video recording lever once unlocked, gets locked in 30 seconds if you do not record and the countdown begins as soon as you unlock the lever.
Additional rechargeable Lithium Ion EN-EL14 battery so you never run out the juice when you’re traveling and do not want to miss capturing a moment for good.
18-55 VR lens has its limitations so if you have extra $$$s, buy body only (if that even is an option) and get yourself a 18-105 VR lens. They instead kept the photographer in mind and focused on delivering greater picture quality.
The Vibration Reduction will help indoors but Vibration Reduction can’t stop a child or pet in motion indoors. Unless you make most of your income from photography or have a stockpile of old lenses (this camera can only autofocus with AFS lenses) then this camera is the must have camera of the year.
From beautiful still photos to smooth Full HD movies, this camera empowers your freedom of expression, letting you capture your own unique view of the world.
In addition to the 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor for finely detailed images, the new EXPEED 3 image processor provides high-speed operation and excellent, rich colour reproduction – as well as enhanced movie recording. The superior accuracy of the 39-point AF system and nine cross-type sensors delivers razor sharp images by focusing precisely on the subject you choose.
This means you can share images that you are proud of with friends via social networks and email for instant reactions. The camera’s subject tracking of moving objects in three dimensions, with full time servo AF (AF-F), ensures focus of moving objects throughout filming. A range of seven special effects: Selective Colour, Miniature, High and Low Key, Silhouette, Colour Sketch and Night Vision can be applied in real time to images and movies through Live View so you can see what your final creation will look like before you shoot it. Or that wanting your camera body in anything other than black is somehow indisputably wrong.
And at the top you find always men (fashion, painting, literature, photography, even cooking !! The motions constantly distract me from what I’m watching and your brain is constantly reminded that you are watching TV. The mirrorless EVIL cameras make great sense and have their uses but they are not reflex cameras. The Nikon D5000 looks like none of the other cameras in the line, and though it has more in common with the D60 than the D90, it shares several elements with both. As with all digital SLRs so far, the Nikon D5000 is better for capturing video snapshots that you can string together in a video editor, rather than longer recordings, because the camera can't autofocus while you record.
As with stills, recording video from multiple angles is easier when you can turn the LCD to face multiple directions. The Nikon D5000's Subject-tracking Autofocus locks onto a moving subject, and remembers the subject if it leaves and comes back into the frame. Also known as the Multi-CAM 1000, the autofocus system in the Nikon D5000 is the same as the D90's, which means it includes 3D Color Matrix Metering II for instant scene evaluation, even in extreme conditions. The Nikon D5000's shutter is expected to last 100,000 cycles, and a new Quiet Release Mode reduces shutter noise for use in very quiet situations.
Last year's big SLR news was Live View and Movie mode, and the D5000 adds an articulating screen to the mix, making both modes that much more valuable. Like the D60, the Nikon D5000's Mode dial is behind the shutter button, while on the D90, the mode dial is on the opposite shoulder to make room for a monochrome status display. The Nikon D5000's mode dial is packed, featuring one extra position for SCENE mode, which opens up 13 additional Scene modes.
The general arrangement of the buttons follows that of the Nikon D90, and the Live view button is also in a similar spot; but Nikon maintained the idea of simplicity on the back of this consumer-oriented digital SLR camera, as it lacks the many silkscreened icons and words that clutter the back of other maker's cameras. Now the power of a pro-level Nikon FX-format camera—stunning full-frame images, cinema-quality 1080p videos, superior low-light performance, blazing fast framing and burst rates, built-in HDR, wireless photo sharing and much more—is attainable in a compact, lightweight HD-SLR. For the first time ever, that level of performance is available in a compact, affordable HD-SLR. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colors, all within the time it takes to press the shutter release button. Connect the optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi enabled device. Nikon says that the new camera offers superior basic performance along with new imaging expression opportunities. The new version of the Nikon 1 camera now uses a metal case and is available in six colors.
Nikon's pricing is boneheaded when its competition's offerings are taken into consideration.2. For those who held onto their Nikon gear while others defected to other brands, their day had come. For more of the in-depth detail, see the many tabs and sub-tabs which include pages of detail and analysis. Contours are smoother, buttons and connector covers are reshaped, but most of the main controls are in familiar places.
The Nikon logo looks slightly bolder, and the D300 logo has been moved up and left a bit to make room for the new tethered Flash Sync and Remote Terminal covers (top right). Starting at the upper left, what was once the Bracket button has been replaced with the Playback button, and the five buttons left of the LCD have been moved around a bit. The left strap lug has been moved from its far-forward position on the D200 to a spot more near the center of the body.
It is sealed to keep dust and moisture out, and the optional battery grip is built of the same material. Used to set aperture and bracketing increments, among other things, for me it's out of sight, and out of mind. Whether moving around in zoomed photos or in menus, the disk comfortably rocks in whichever direction you want. While the Nikon D300 has a new Live View mode, where you'll find the real speed of an SLR is through the optical viewfinder. The use of an LCD panel means that they can offer an optional grid in the optical viewfinder, something that requires you to change the viewscreen on other digital SLR cameras. The Nikon D300 includes a protective screen cover that isn't as bad as previous models, but I still find the extra reflection and glare bothersome enough that I generally leave it in the camera bag.
Nikon brings its venerable 1,005-area metering sensor to bear on an old problem: AF tracking. When in 51-area with 3D tracking mode, the EXPEED processor looks at data from both the AF sensor and the 1,005-area metering sensor. Instead of flipping mechanical switches, the Nikon D300 simply reads data off the CMOS image sensor and evaluates how abruptly light to dark (or dark to light) transitions happen on the image plane. This is pretty key, as less than 10x magnification really doesn't do the trick for getting the focus set right, but at 10x we felt we could pretty well nail the focus every time. Measuring 24x15mm, the Nikon's new 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor produces images with a slightly greater pixel count than its big brother, the full-frame D3.
The D300 is capable of six frames-per-second, and up to eight fps when used with the new MB-D10 Multi-Power battery pack (more on this below). Since we haven't tested the battery grip, we don't know how fast the combination can shoot in 14-bit RAW with the extra battery.
Nikon's old Matrix metering system has improved so much that they had to rename it Scene Recognition System. D-Lighting is a popular post-processing feature in cameras like the Nikon D80 and D40, and even some of Nikon's consumer digital cameras. Rather than just tweaking shadow and highlight detail, it seems like the D300's Active D-Lighting is looking at all portions of the image and making significant adjustments to the tone curve where it matters most.
While other cameras have had lens distortion processing built-in, notably the Olympus E-1, none have done the processing based on the distortion they see in the image like the D300 and D3 do with their Lateral Chromatic Aberration correction.
Since it is applied only to JPEG images, we were able to just how well it works by comparing the shot at left with the one at right, extracted from a RAW image.
Nikon has standardized their Picture Control system so that camera settings for tone, saturation, brightness, and sharpening can be set and ported to other Nikon digital SLRs.
The Nikon D300 uses an EN-EL3e battery, which will drive it through 1,000 shots on a single charge.
The D300 has a dust cleaning system that the D3 does not; it's Nikon's first dust reduction system. So while this is a nice feature to have, don't be fooled into thinking that you won't have to either learn how to clean your sensor or send it in for cleaning.
That meant I had less time with the camera, so it's hard to do justice to a camera with such depth and ability. It was a simple assignment I gave myself to see how the camera and I would function in an unusual situation (especially the morning shots). In candid people shooting, I had a little more trouble with the Nikon D300's slow acquisition in 51-point mode.
Although it's fast, I haven't gotten used to the requirement to fully press the shutter button to activate Live View between shots.
The zoom automatically chooses your selected AF point if you're shooting with just one point selected. If you want another good example of the detail available on the Nikon D300, zoom in for a good view of the pigeons perched on the figures carved on Stone Mountain.
Illuminated by the television only, this shot looks like it could have been made in normal room light. In real low light situations, the results are indeed pretty soft, but this shot of my son sleeping in front of the television was taken in near darkness.
The approaches to noise suppression that the two companies employ are as similar to past models as they are different from each other.
As I mentioned at the outset, the Nikon D300 is not a digital SLR camera for those who just want to dabble in photography.
The new SRS system had no trouble adjusting the exposure for this classic black 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Coupe in the morning light. Having 51 points to choose from is nothing to sneeze at, offering greater positional accuracy than any other digital SLR camera in this price range.
Only minor levels adjustment is necessary to bring this unadjusted shot into compliance with what I saw. Be sure to see our extensive analysis of the D300's image quality in the Exposure section, whose subtabs also explore the D300's high ISO noise reduction, its Imatest results, and allow you to download RAW files of our standard test shots so you can see for yourself how the D300's NEF files work with your own RAW software. If you've done your homework, this fine camera will deliver just what you're looking for, and can prove it to you with its fine LCD screen right there on the spot.
Nikon D700 Digital camera is a one, which will help you detain your life most precious and valued moments with just a one click.A Nikon D700 Digital cameras are of very trivial type and can be take easily where you want to go. Savor the exceptional depth in your still images — with the astounding 36.3 effective megapixels, you can. Nikon engineers have developed intelligent new methods to manipulate light transmission to the sensor’s photodiodes; from the optical low-pass filter and on-chip gapless micro lenses to the image sensor’s internal design, every measure has been taken to maximize and improve light transmission in order to deliver crisp, brilliant images with significantly less noise. Fast shot-to-shot time, full resolution frame rate up to 4 fps, 6 fps in DX crop mode using MB-D12 Multi-Power Battery Pack and ultra fast CF and SD card write times. Also you can record video while you’re in any dial (imaging) mode (Auto, P, A, S, M, and so on) where as in Canon T2i, etc. There are many cases to choose from and it’s up to you to decide but I suggest getting something like Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW (all weather proof carrying case) so if it rains, you can pull out the weather guard and cover it up. Those who have used speed lights would know what difference it can make to an image with adjustments you can make to light for an image.
But at that point, you may want to consider D90 which still is a good camera and offers many more controls.
As a wedding photographer I regularly shoot with Nikon’s high end professional equipment and I was amazed how close this camera is to a pro camera. Consider buying a 35mm 1.8dx AFS for around $200 and you will be super happy with this camera. If you have good composition skills and an eye for light you can take photos worthy of a magazine with this. The high ISO sensitivity (100-6400 which is extendable to 25600) delivers brilliant shots in dark or poorly lit environments as well as producing clear images of fast moving subjects. Meanwhile, the 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor provides precise data to the camera’s Scene Recognition System, which optimizes exposure, autofocus and white balance immediately before the shutter is released. In addition, the Nikon D5200 is an intelligently designed lightweight camera, with clear menus and superior ergonomics, making it a pleasure to maneuver and shoot with. It is even possible to control your camera remotely from your smart device to help you take beautiful shots without disturbing your subjects. Adding to that, creating movies to be proud of can be achieved with in-movie editing and the camera’s built-in stereo microphone. In addition, in-camera High Dynamic Range (HDR) and D-lighting capture detailed images of high-contrast scenes, increasing creative possibilities.
The D5200 is one for people who think buying a big camera will make them into a photographer, hence the cherry and chocolate exteriors = p&s upgraders.
I know many people like to have a D400 and a D7100, but I think Nikon will cover both with just one camera because upgrading the D7000 to D400 specs is just a very small step (different AF and other body will basicaly do the trick).
Nikon's EXPEED image processing system should easily handle noise suppression and image optimization with the somewhat slow four-frame-per-second frame rate. Though it's not the most versatile design, the Nikon D5000's LCD swivels from the bottom, allowing you to compose and capture images from above, below, left, right, and the front of the camera. The Nikon D5000 also has the Integrated Dust Reduction System, with a four-frequency ultrasonic motor to shake dust from the sensor, as well as the Airflow Control System, which works to move dust away from the sensor with shutter release. Other SLR makers, notably Olympus, Sony, and Panasonic have included articulating screens, but usually for more money, and without Movie mode. Capture every detail in stunning clarity with Nikon’s superior 39-point AF system with Scene Recognition.
Optimized for full-frame shooting and versatility, streamlined for compactness and value, the Nikon D600 24.3 MP Digital SLR Camera 24-85mm will fuel your passion like never before. That data is then referenced against an onboard image database for consistently accurate exposures, auto white balance, i-TTL flash and subject-tracking autofocus performance. Bend time with 720p HD at 60p, 50p or 30p for ultra-smooth video playback of fast moving subjects, or create slow-motion footage during post processing. Its EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting at full resolution.
The J2 camera has an on and off switch on the retractable lens barrel and high-resolution rear screen with 921,000 dots measuring 3-inches.
The camera also has a new Waterproof Case WP-N1 that is also compatible with the older Nikon 1 J1.
Nikon doesn't want to cannibalize its own product lines by offering equally good or better lenses options on the mirrorless line as it currently does with its regular size SLRs.
Though Nikon had long since re-established its prominence in the digital SLR market, the announcements of the D3 and D300 took the battle to a new level. They share so many features, we've come to think of the D300 as the build-it-yourself Nikon D3.
That doesn't happen with the D3, nor the Canon 40D (though the 40D is only 10 megapixels instead of the D300's 12.3). When I encounter a new situation that requires a new setting or mode, I just take a look at the back and top of the D300 and usually find my answer readily available. We've taken hundreds of shots with the Nikon D300, and you're welcome to download, tweak, and print any of them for your own individual camera research purposes.
The grip is essentially the same, with a nice indented inner surface for the balls of your fingers to sink into. And more comfort while holding the Nikon D300 is not a bad idea, since this solid camera weighs in at around two pounds without a lens, but with a card and battery. Menu moves up one button to make room for more clearly marked zoom buttons, and the Enter button has changed to OK. The Nikon D300 is a handful, but its greater surface area allows more room for all the buttons and dials I find so useful when taking pictures. Those accustomed to shooting high-end Nikons will have no trouble with this, but anyone moving up from most consumer SLRs might be a little lost at first. It's not as fast as buttons or dials, but it is easy on the fingers, and more difficult to activate accidentally.
And though the Nikon D200's viewfinder was big, bright, and beautiful, the Nikon D300's viewfinder delivers nearly 100 percent frame coverage, something we specifically wished for in our D200 review. Because this LCD serves as an electronic mirror in the pentaprism, it draws a very tiny amount of power even when the Nikon D300 is turned off. At 920,000 pixels, the D300's LCD resolution is higher than any SLR currently on the market, with the exception of the Nikon D3 and Sony A700. The Multi-CAM system can be set to five modes on the Nikon D300, including 9-area, 21-area, 51-area, and 51-area with 3D tracking. With this extra information, the AF system can better select and track a subject, even when it leaves the AF area.


The useful side of so many AF points is that the camera can be very explicit about where it's focusing. I do my best to clear them, but it turns out that AF fine tune doesn't change when you reset all (which makes perfect sense).
What makes Nikon's Live View mode unique are the two options it provides for autofocus operation. Contrast-detect AF isn't nearly as fast as phase-detect (which is why the shutter response of most digicams is so much slower than most digital SLRs), but at least these new Nikons can focus without interrupting the Live View display. Though JPEG images are saved at 8-bits, NEF (RAW) images can contain the full 14-bits of data. Shutter lag is 45 milliseconds, the viewfinder blackout time is 100 milliseconds, and expected shutter life is 150,000 cycles. Since the limiting factor is likely the larger file size, however, it's probably the same speed with or without the battery pack.
We're not sure if it's the same as the one in the D3, but the slower frame rate makes that unlikely. Matrix metering in general compares what it sees through the lens to a special database, one that's created from several hundred thousand different possible scenes. It's a quick software process that attempts to overcome underexposed images, and bring detail out of shadows.
When we processed our dynamic range images from the Nikon D3, I saw exactly what I expected: a curve that didn't flow evenly, instead wiggling at the ends in the dark and light ends of the curve.
Note how the highlight on Marti's forehead comes under greater control in the Normal shot, and though to my eye the detail gets a little noisier in the shadows, the local contrast seems to be improved in and around shadow areas.
The E-1 took its distortion-correction cues from whichever lens was mounted and applied a pre-set amount of correction; but no image analysis actually took place.
Currently the only camera compatible with the option is the Nikon D3, and new models are set to follow the standard. The optional MB-D10 Multi-Power Battery Pack adds two frames per second (with a higher capacity lithium-ion battery or AA's installed), taking the D300 to 8 fps, probably its most enticing feature.
A Live View image can be transmitted to a computer via wire or wireless using the optional Camera Control Pro 2 software. Major functions like ISO, White Balance, and AF modes are assigned their own buttons and switches, and making these common changes are easy on the big Status LCD on the top deck.
You can do this with any other camera, but check out the resolution you get with the D300's 12.3 megapixel sensor and the excellent optics. I'm just used to faster performance, and while the Nikon D3 delivers that performance, the D300 has to think a little too long for candids.
If you're shooting in multi-point mode, it zooms in on the general area covered, but you'll have to move around a bit to see just what's in focus.
As with anything, you can get used to it eventually, but the submenus can make it complicated to remember under just what tab and submenu an important function is located.
Neither is it for those who just like having the latest, coolest-looking camera hanging around their neck. I trusted that the D300 would get this backlit portrait of Robert Hyden, the Model A's owner, just as I saw it, and I was right. Camera you can store a great amount of photos because it has large picture storage liberty.
All this is possible under a wide variety of lighting conditions, enabling you to get the most out of your NIKKOR lenses. Widen production perspective using either Nikon FX or DX lens formats at Full HD 1080p and 16:9 aspect ratio. You can also select from 16 different Scene modes – they optimize the camera settings, such as shutter speed, ISO and aperture – to the situation you are shooting. I have friends just like this who want to get into photography so they buy a big camera but only ever use the 18-55 kit lens. Just because each frame in 60i is lower quality than 30p doesn’t mean that they are going to be equivalent. The major benefit of capturing video with a digital SLR like the Nikon D5000 is that you can take advantage of the wide range of SLR lenses, from extreme wide-angle to telephoto. Wide-area AF covers a broad area, and Normal-area AF features a single focus point that you can move around the screen.
The power switch surrounds the shutter release button, but note the lack of a Sub-command dial in front of that, typically used on the D90 to adjust aperture, among other things.
From here you can also see the two raised tabs for pulling the articulating screen out from the body.
Its EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 5.5 frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting at full resolution.
When shooting photos or HD video in Live View, Nikon’s responsive contrast-detect AF activates for accurate fulltime autofocusing.
Maintain your creative vision with manual exposure control, fulltime AF with face-priority and subject tracking, dedicated inputs for a stereo mic and headphones, still image exporting, and much more. Install Nikon’s free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility and remotely control the D600—see what the camera sees from your smartphone or tablet and fire off shots! And the lowlight performance synonymous with Nikon is again proven deserved—shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25600 for extreme situations. If the D80, D40, and D40x were shots across the bow of their largest competitor, the D3 and D300 were broadsides, point-blank.
You can almost achieve the D3's performance by adding accessories to the D300; all but the larger frame size. And though the Nikon D300 has 51 autofocus points like the Nikon D3, it is much slower at acquiring focus than the D3 is when in Auto-area AF. Granted, in the beginning there were a few times when I just decided to make do with other settings rather than delve into the comprehensive menu system. On the right, the AF-area mode switch no longer includes the Group dynamic-AF option, and the memory card latch has a new design. It may not be the best camera for portability or casual travel, but if your purpose for traveling includes photography, you won't mind the extra bulk.
The Quality, White Balance, and ISO buttons are where they should be on the top deck, where you can press them and make the setting on the top Status LCD by turning the Main command dial.
When the battery is removed or completely drained, the screen dims a bit, and all graphics disappear. The fifth mode is an 11-area mode designed to mimic the D200's AF system for those making the transition. A red car moving toward the camera could conceivably be tracked from one side of the frame to the other, tracked more accurately through the AF zone. While shooting a sunrise with a flag pole in the shot, the Auto AF ran its point selection right up the flag pole.
Camera companies are starting to acknowledge this, building in adjustments to compensate for front- and back-focusing problems. So I had a lot of trouble with back focusing issues on some family shots I took one weekend, and only discovered the following day that the particular lens I used had been adjusted to +20 in one of the Lab tests, and that setting was never cleared. As an added benefit, because it's working with data coming from the main image sensor, you can move the AF point anywhere you want within the frame area, right out to the extreme edges. Competitors have noticed and are starting to make their shutter and mirror mechanisms quieter too. It has a 16-bit pipeline and is the engine for processing the 14-bit color data from analog to digital at such a rapid rate. The SRS version does a more complete analysis, improving white balance, focus tracking, and exposure.
But it also allows a battery to be kept in the camera body to supplement the battery grip's input. The big, bright viewfinder and its Status display make framing shots and adjusting settings a pleasure, rather than a squinty, eye-straining chore.
But I was just trying out the 51-point system for the review; I prefer locking it to a single point, and either moving that point around or leaving it at the center and recomposing. I'd rather just have Live View come on, and let me press the shutter when I'm ready to take a picture.
You don't see which points are selected until after the shot is made (provided you have the Focus point option selected in the Display Mode dialog under the Playback menu, an option I recommend activating). Though I didn't bother to set up the My Menu function, I surely would for quicker access to commonly used functions, or else I'd go insane in high-pressure situations.
The Nikon D300 wasn't able to focus in this light without the AF assist light (which is why his eyes are slightly open here), something the Canon 40D did achieve, but the shot's impressive nonetheless. Naturally you get more detail with a higher resolution sensor (hence the greater apparent magnification in the above shots), so evidence of noise suppression at 100% onscreen becomes negligible when printed.
I love the Nikon D300 for how demanding it can be, as well as how forgiving in its RAW files.
I know many pros are going to want both, but it's going to cost an additional $3.2K for the Nikon D3 to get it, I'm sorry to say.
Attach headphones and check audio levels or monitor input via peak audio meters as displayed on the camera's LCD monitor. So this is a great convenience – you can jump between taking pictures and recording videos with a simple unlocking of the lever.
In order to make it brighter or darker you either need to use a really old lens like the 50mm 1.2 and hit the AE-L (auto exposure lock) and twist the aperture to change exposure.
Just beneath the red accent is the infrared receiver, made for the optional Nikon ML-L3 remote control.
Note also how much the screen sticks out from the back of the Nikon D5000 near the top, making it easier to grasp from the sides. And the low-light performance synonymous with Nikon is again proven deserved—shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations. Enhance all that with the dramatic perspectives and depth-of-field control of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses, and you’ll dazzle with every video project.
Other features include the ability to record full HD movies using a new Motion Snapshot mode that creates about one-second of movie footage before and after the time the shutter release button is pressed.
The new Scene Recognition System that merges data from the AF system with data from the 1,005-point metering system for greater accuracy and better tracking will draw them closer; but it's probably the new 51-point AF system that fairly dominates the DX-sized frame and includes 15 cross-type sensors will entice them the most. It'll adjust your ISO, find detail in the shadows, and track your subject even when it's not in the autofocus area. Later I found the solution after a little investigation, but it's clear that there's a bit of learning curve to using the Nikon D300.
At about $1,700 each, these lenses are pricey, but are two compelling new reasons to buy a Nikon.
Once you own the Nikon D300 and get used to the Sub-command dial's location, however, this won't be an issue at all. If you hit the Info button, you can look at the rear Status display and use the disk to select among the AF points without having to peer through the viewfinder.
You can more easily check focus, sometimes even without zooming in; but when you do zoom in, you can really check focus. The Nikon D300 has a new system that just does that, but unlike the D200 it doesn't just work for the body side of the equation.
Nikon has included a half-measure for such problems, allowing you to input the last two digits of your lens's serial number so you can match the camera to the lens. I'm glad we discovered it, because I was about to spiral into a long analysis of what might be wrong with the AF system.
Because the traditional AF sensors are blocked when you flip up the mirror for Live View mode, you have to drop the mirror to focus, then flip it back for Live View. AF operation in this mode is unfortunately quite slow, so they really mean it when they call it Tripod mode. Generally, the larger the pixel, the more light-gathering ability, so it's no surprise that the Nikon D3 has better low-light noise control.
One of its chief benefits is highlight analysis, which is designed to prevent blown highlights in common situations by adjusting the tone curve to compensate. Well, the system has been improved in the Nikon D300, to include optimization of image contrast.
But the new Nikons have the power, thanks to the EXPEED processing system, to actually analyze each image after capture and fix the chromatic aberration before saving the JPEG file.
Other designs use a tower that goes up into the battery compartment, which introduces a few problems, including packing an L-shaped grip in a camera bag when it's not in use.
Apparently dust reduction for their full resolution D3 will have to wait for the next revision, due to complications in vibrating such a large piece of glass at the necessary frequencies. I don't think it's a fault, because I can't imagine how they could make such a complex and customizable camera's menu any better than it is. The 40D preserves more detail in the leaf shots, and even in the small fern pattern to the right of each swatch, but it's more muddled and noisy, whereas the Nikon D300's interpretation of the same fabric seems more accurate to the eye, even if the detail is lost. But for teaching, there's no better tutor than the image you'll see on the high-res LCD screen. With the help of the in built card of the cameras you can assess photographs, facility to check the camera battery, allowing zoom flash and do lots more. For the size and feel, it’s very similar to D3000 but has more goodies from the higher versions. Additionally, you can be in a preferred dial (imaging) mode (Auto, P, A, S, M, and so on) and change the release mode to Single, Continuous, Self-timer or Quiet mode (this is located right underneath the main dial) – another great convenient feature. But they don’t get the entry level camera because they fancy themselves as becoming expert. Indeed, the Nikon D300's manual is almost twice as thick, with just over double the pages of the D200's: 421 pages compared to 210. Having the power switch around the shutter button has always appealed to me, because if the camera's been switched off, you can just flip it on without taking your eye from the viewfinder or your hand off the grip. The Main command dial is recessed on the right side just enough to prevent frequent accidental activation, but it's easy to turn when you want to.
The actual resolution in more familiar dimensional terms is 640x480, because they count each color in their calculation (RGB). Sometimes it's the lenses that are out of tune too, so adjusting just the camera's AF to work well with one lens won't solve the problem with another; indeed it can make other lenses worse.
Initially, we hoped this meant that you could put another lens on of the same type and enter that serial number so you could store two values, but it seems like the identifier number is only for reference: a note that allows you to make sure you've attached the right lens of a given type. It also enables such impressive features as the Scene Recognition System, in-camera Lateral Chromatic Aberration Correction, and Active D-Lighting, detailed below.
That's a good tweak on their part, because often D-Lighting could overprocess the shadows and flatten the overall contrast in an image.
Making the D300 so malleable requires a deep menu structure (we took over 1,000 screenshots of the D300's menu and other functions), and understanding all those functions requires a 421 page manual, plain and simple. Though leaf detail is indeed lost on the ISO 6,400 red swatch, the fine text in the Mas Portel bottle is rendered well thanks to the higher resolution.
It is available in two different modes with amazing speed with outline display of color screen.
So from an initial wow factor, I quickly moved on to focusing on features and capabilities.
It can be this generation, or the next, but at some point there are no more features to add to keep a model line. But even if you count three horizontal pixels as one, that's still 266 pixels per inch, which is a lot finer resolution than your computer screen.
Nikon's latest releases on the matter describe EXPEED as not necessarily a piece of specific hardware, but rather a method of processing images for a desired output, so it's hard to know what kind of processor it is. They're very close, and all include tradeoffs, but there's no question that the ISO 6,400 setting on the Nikon D300 produces very usable images.
You can lock it in program and get good shots much of the time, but the Nikon D300 will do the equivalent of bucking you to the dirt if you mess with it without checking the manual to understand what you're doing. I found that when light came at it at an angle, it ruined my impression of the image, and I often underexposed shots that I didn't later with the cover off. Simultaneously Live View footage on the camera's LCD monitor and external monitor during recording are possible.
Inside the menu options you can change the AE-L button to hold the setting until you reset which is helpful. As omsebody else suggested, it would be more logical to add a line below the D3xxx line than to add something at the top. It's also interesting that unlike Canon's DIGIC system, the EXPEED system doesn't handle autofocus or exposure data, only the task of processing and compressing images. I believed the image I saw rather than checking the histogram during that sunrise shoot, and paid the price. If I need at-the-spot pictures, my phone's camera will suffice, otherwise I'm bringing in heavy artillery.Manual focus and shallow depth of field.
Even if you have something brighter to work with, can you blur out everything other than the subject without post-processing?3a: These things are more susceptible to theft? You don't get any control out of your dinky lil' P&S anyway, and their ergonomics are bad most of the time.If you're going to parties, why bother with a dedicated camera?
