Nikon has unveiled a pair of new mirrorless digital cameras that are both decidedly high-end: the Z7 and the Z6. The duo is nearly identical with the exception price, resolution, and autofocus (AF) system. The Z7 is a 45.7MP digital camera with ISO 64-25600 standard and ISO 32 and ISO 102400 expanded. Nikon's Z6... Read more...

Apple never neglects to mention whatever improved optics are in the latest iPhone during each and every iPhone launch event, and it's never just lip service -- the rear-cameras on last few iPhone releases have been quite good.

For consumers, it's all about convenience and cost. Let's face it, a dedicated point-n-shoot isn't a priority for spur-of-the-moment shots when a... Read more...
These days, camera makers are trying all sorts of new tricks in order to make up for lost sales in the point-and-shoot department. Ever since cameraphones became acceptable enough for the masses, there have been a lot fewer reasons to splurge on a compact. And with technology constantly shrinking, we've seen a number of companies attempt to... Read more...

While much of the camera world gunning for mirrorless expansion, Nikon's staying focused on the high-end. But, in an effort to battle recent efforts from Olympus and Canon, it's making access to full-frame DSLRs a bit easier. The company's newest camera is the D600, a full-frame (FX) camera that's much smaller than the D4, D3 and D800, delivering... Read more...

It was only a few years ago when 720p video capabilities came to Nikon's D90. Now, 1080p is all the rage, and DSLRs are taking the place of actual camcorders when it comes to shooting music videos, television shows and even movies. Canon has benefited greatly from this shift, but Nikon's hoping to generate some interest of its own. This week,... Read more...

The D700 finally has a replacement. As one of the oldest, still-current full-frame cameras on the market, the D700 was an oldie-but-goodie. But there's nothing like a major replacement to make us move on to what's next. Nikon just introduced the D800 this evening, with an astounding 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor (7360 x 4912 resolution), a... Read more...
The high-end camera market is seriously heating up. Just months after Canon's EOS-1D X hit the scene, Nikon's response is now official. It's the D4, and while you may say it's a follow-up to the D3S, it's more like an evolutionary step. There's a new FX-format CMOS sensor (16.2MP), the same ISO range as on the D3S (100 to 12,800 natively),... Read more...
