Unveiled: The New Nikon D3300 DSLR, a Fast Nikon Prime Lens, Five Point-and-Shoot Digital Cameras

It certainly is the time of the sea(CES)son, and Nikon has brought forth a wealth of cameras and lenses bound to intrigue a wide-range of shooters.

Cameras of the Year

Every year a series of "revolutionary" and "game-changing" cameras are released into the market. They included amazing high-resolution sensors, new professional-grade cameras, and slim new mirrorless designs in 2012. So what could possibly change in just one year?

A lot.

Cinema Zoom Lenses

People have been shooting HD video with DSLR cameras packing still lenses for years—mostly with fixed focal length lenses, which are often referred to as "prime" lenses in the film industry. In general, zoom lenses made for still photos are a poor fit for cinema production. You can use them, as many low-budget indie productions do, but they lack many necessary features.

Aspects of Cinema

For aspiring filmmakers, the key to “getting into cinema” is networking, working on productions, and creating your own projects. There was a time when, if you wanted your films to look like film, you shot on film. Even five or six years ago, a professional-quality video camera would cost you several thousand dollars, at a minimum. Moreover, solid-state media and hard-drive storage cost nearly ten times what it does today.

Zacuto Recoil Rigs

HDSLRs and large-sensor video cameras have become today’s most popular cameras for shooting video. But, straight out of the box, they’re still notoriously uncomfortable to hold when shooting video for longer than a few minutes. From the beginning, even early adopters of these cameras asked, “How can we shoot comfortably for longer periods of time, keep the camera stable, and not give up mobility?”

Purchasing Your Next Lens

No matter how many lenses a photographer has, there’s always another one that we long for. There are so many options out there that choosing your next lens can be a confusing task. We're going to help you choose the best lens to fit your specific needs.
