Nikon Announces the D5100 DSLR

Today, Nikon announced the new D5100 DSLR camera: the successor to the D5000. B&H will be stocking the camera with the 18-55mm kit lens as well as body only. See the official press release from B&H and a couple of prominent features after clicking the read and discuss button.



Nikon Coolpix S80

The Nikon Coolpix S80 is a point-and-shoot camera with a 14MP CCD sensor, ISO up to 6400 and a 5x Zoom Nikkor lens. It features a 3.5-inch OLED touch screen with more than 800,000 dots that gives you a bright, high-resolution display.

Nikon Coolpix P7000

The P7000 is truly an advanced compact digital camera, offering one of the biggest 10MP sensors in its class, almost all the manual controls a DSLR would have and with some important options about which very few compact digital cameras can boast.

Extended-Zoom Cameras

Not long ago, point-and-shoot cameras had zoom lenses that seldom went beyond the optical range of a 35-105mm lens on a conventional 35mm camera. Not so anymore. Thanks to numerous advancements in optical technologies, digicams now feature 8x to 14x zooms that despite their 20-something to 200-300mm-plus focal ranges, still slip easily into your pocket. In addition to HD video, some perform some pretty neat tricks.

Macro Lenses

Regardless of the focal length of your favorite lens, I'd venture to say you've been in situations where you've tried to focus in tight on your subject and inevitably hit the wall—the minimum focus point of your lens. Sure you can crop, but in a perfect world it would be swell if each of our lenses would focus as close to our subjects as our mind's eye focuses. Alas, the world isn't perfect... but we do have macro lenses.

Beyond the Kit Lens

For many DSLR owners, there comes a time when one wants to go beyond the kit lens that came with the camera. The reasons vary. For some it's a matter of sharpness. For others it's a matter of speed and/or focal-length restrictions. And for some it's simply the fact they don't like the ''icky" feel of a plastic lens barrel, regardless of how sharp the lens may or may not be.

Fast Glass

Zoom lenses have become increasingly popular over the years for a number of reasons, including convenience (less lost time swapping lenses and in turn less chance of getting dust on the camera sensor and/or missing the shot altogether), weight (one slightlier heavier zoom can replace two or three slightly lighter but collectively heavier lenses) and slimmer camera bags (have you flown with carry-on baggage lately?). 

Five Cameras That are Discontinued But Not Forgotten

Do you ever dream about your old cameras? Perhaps you've upgraded to a more modern camera but still have feelings for your old ones. Here is an ode to the cameras that you probably can't breathe life into. 

Professional's Choice

Professionals tend to expect more from the tools they use. They expect them to perform reliably, accurately and smoothly on good days and bad. On top of all that, they expect their tools to feel proper, secure and "right" in the hand. And these very same folk often have the same expectations when it comes to pedestrian items. We'd like to talk about a half-dozen point-and-shoot digital cameras that should appeal to serious-minded shooters seeking a pocket-sized camera that feels and performs like a "real" camera.
