We get to the bottom of how to use the Nikon D600 manual aperture control function while recording video, which has been riling video makers since it launched.
We take a closer look at the new features on the Nikon J2, the latest addition to the Nikon 1 range of cameras.
Although a number of Nikon DSLRs have video recording capabilities, we understand that many of you would rather shoot still images rather than moving pictures. However, as we’ve often stumbled across some absolutely beautiful short films shot using Nikon DSLRs, we decided to put together a post featuring five of the best Nikon films.
In this video, photographer Benjamin Von Wong gives a detailed breakdown on how he went about his photoshoot with Olympic Paradressage Rider, Natasha Baker.
The Yongnuo YN560-II is a cheap flash gun, and it’s also the perfect camera accessory, argues Ali from our testing team. Watch our short video demonstration to find out why.
Yesterday we shared video comparison of two leading Nikon DSLRs, the Nikon D3200 vs D3100, and discussed some of the key differences between these two entry-level DSLRs in the Nikon range. Given the Nikon D3200′s impressive specs we thought we would take this idea step further – quite literally – and compare the D3200 to another popular camera a little bit higher in the manufacturer’s line-up with a Nikon D3200 vs D5100 comparison.
Announced in April, the Nikon D3200 became the latest addition to Nikon’s DSLR range after refreshing the top end of its line-up at the start of the year with the Nikon D800 and Nikon D4. Bolstering the manufacturer’s beginner range, the Nikon D3200 was launched not to replace the ever-popular Nikon D3100; rather, it will sit along side the D3100 as a more premium option. Which begs the question… when you make a comparison of the Nikon D3200 vs D3100, which is the better camera for your money?
Announced just a couple weeks ago, the Nikon D3200 has already been hailed as the ultimate beginners camera, thanks to its 24.2-megapixel resolution and range of features.
Chief among these features is the Nikon D3200′s Guide Mode, which might not be an entirely new feature, but Nikon has been keen to point out the improvements made to both the interface and navigation over previous versions.
In the video inside, our head of testing, Angela Nicholson, takes a look at how the Nikon D3200 Guide Mode works and the benefits it provides through its step by step camera settings for those new to photography.
You don’t need a movie mode function on your digital camera to make a motion picture. In fact, you don’t even need additional movie-editing software, such as Adobe Premiere. For this simple photography project we’ll show you how to use nothing more than your digital camera and Photoshop CS to put together a simple stop-motion animation sequence, then save it as a QuickTime movie. And seeing as today is Easter, we thought what better subject than to melt a chocolate Easter Bunny!
Using the basic principles of animation, we’ll take a series of images using our DSLR’s Interval Timer set to take a shot automatically every seven seconds, while the chocolate bunny is slowly melted by a hair dryer.
By now you’ve no doubt read the Photoshop CS6 new features list and have been wowed by some and perhaps non-plussed by others. We’ve been playing around with the Photoshop CS6 beta for a few weeks now and think we have a good handle on how some of these new tools and toys work. Watch our video below as we take you through each item on the Photoshop CS6 new features list and show you what it can do for your photos.
