Nikon Celebrates Centennial with First Details of the "Herculean" D850

Happy Birthday Nikon! Today marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most important and celebrated companies in the photography industry. Even if you are a Canon or Sony shooter, of which I have been both, Nikon deserves a great deal of respect for its pioneering development of top-tier imaging equipment over the past century. Established in 1917, Nikon began creating advanced optical engineering techniques and then, over time, jumped into cameras and quickly became one of the top manufacturers in the field.

If you’re into wider-aperture wide-angle lenses that deliver ridiculously sharp image files (as I am) you’re precisely the person Sigma had in its crosshairs when the company whipped up its latest high-performance hotties—the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART and Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM ART -series lenses.

Time-Lapse Tips and Tools

Time-lapse videos have invaded nearly every form of media in recent years, even breaking into our social media apps with the recent development of the hyper-lapse. These types of videos can be quite difficult to make, especially with the time requirements inherent in capturing and transforming a lengthy event into a few seconds of footage. They can also be some of the most stunning and interesting videos to watch. To capture even better photos and videos for time-lapses, here are some tips that will help elevate your imagery.

Maine Driving Guide: From Mount Katahdin to Acadia National Park

Numerically speaking, the New England road map is as straightforward as it gets, which makes it a great starting point for a travel excursion. Highway numbers are ordered from East to West, so the lowest numbers—such as historic Route 1—are located farthest east. North/South highways tend to have odd number designations, such as the heavily traveled I-95, whereas East/West routes are assigned even numbers. East/West roads also tend to be numbered from north to south, with the lowest numbers located further north—such as secluded Route 2 from Houlton, Maine, to Everett, Washington.

I am a sucker for design and, years ago, when in the market for my first SLR camera, it wasn’t really a feature set that sold me on a brand, it was the way the Nikon SLR looked to my eye and felt to my hand that made me target the N6006. Little did I know then that the design of the consumer N6006 had Nikon F4 DNA in its good looks and that the Nikon F4, which I consider the best-looking SLR ever made, had acquired its pulchritude from famed automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Italian design firm—Italdesign.
