Fans attending a concert in the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater this summer might find it ironic that they're forbidden to use a DSLR camera, even one made by Nikon. Isn't that like being told that you can't pull out your credit card in Citi Field? Read the rules posted about the amphitheater at Jonesbeach.com and it states: "No professional cameras. No audio or video recording devices."
Photography and hiking have gone together for years and years. Whether you’re planning a day hike with friends or a 7-day solo trek, here are 5 tips to carry you through your journey. May your photos be second only to your adventures!
Nikon will be shipping an updated version of its popular 200-400mm f/4 telephoto lens in late May. Headline features include VR II (with up to 4-stops of shake savings) and Nano Crystal Coatings to keep colors consistent while reducing ghosting and lens flare. The optical formula and lens design are basically the same as the previous version -- no major changes in speed, size, weight, etc. Price? Under $7000.
I'm always on the lookout for digicams that stand out from the crowd, and considering how crowded the marketplace is, most digicams tend to blend into the masses rather than stand out. An exception to this sad situation is Nikon's CoolPix S8000, a little hottie I've had an opportunity to tool around with for the past week or so. Clad in a brushed - but not brash-looking - red aluminum housing, the S8000 passes muster on several counts. First off, the camera features a 5.4 - 54mm/3.5-5.6 ED VR zoom lens that takes in the equivalent field-of-view of a 30-300mm lens. Anybody looking for a good pocket-sized travel camera?
