Promising outstanding image quality, along with quick and accurate focusing mechanism, the D4S makes it easy for photographers to capture decisive moments, particularly in sports events.

Advanced compact cameras are now a dime a dozen, so the 12.2-megapixel Nikon CoolPix P7800 finds itself in a tough fight with both compact camera systems, such as the Panasonic GM1, and compact cameras such as the Sony RX100 and Canon S120.

Goondu Review: Nikon Df

28 Dec


The retro look has been a feature in cameras throughout 2013, thanks to the Olympus Pen E-P1 and Fujifilm X100 camera. Nikon’s much-touted Df, or Digital Fusion, is the latest to join the party.

Nikon unveils its own APS-C compact — the CoolPix A

CoolPix A

In the face of dwindling sales, compact cameras are experiencing some serious feature bumps to try to pull in the growing legion of photography enthusiasts. One of the more popular gimmick today is the cramming of large sensors into compact bodies with the promise of better quality photos.

Nikon is the latest entrant into this “small body, big sensor” race with its new CoolPix A, and its 16.2-megapixel “DX” sensor is the as big as most of the company’s DSLR cameras. Like other large sensor compacts, the CoolPix A has a fixed focal length and wide aperture, which should mean sharper and brighter photos.

Canon’s 6D takes on the Nikon D600 with a lower price tag

1 Dec

Canon and Nikon are officially going at each other again now that the EOS 6D full-frame DSLR has landed at your nearest camera store. The 6D starts at S$2,899, a lower price than Nikon’s D600, which is going for S$3,249.

While Nikon isn’t offering any kit combos with the D600, you can get the 6D with an EF24-105 f/4 L lens for S$3,899 or an EF24-70 f4 L lens for S$4,699.

As far as full-frame DSLRs go, the 6D’s much cheaper price seems a better buy. But you do get what you pay for, as the paper specifications of the D600 mostly trumps those of the 6D.

Hands-on: Nikon D600, full-frame DSLR with a smaller price tag

I was a little tired of hearing a company praise its own products to the skies after Apple’s hyperbolic iPhone 5 announcement yesterday, but it’s hard to argue against Nikon calling the new D600 DSLR a “game-changer”.

The company’s new full-frame camera – or FX format, in Nikon parlance – sticks it to every other full-frame DSLR on the market on several counts.

Samsung is already the king of Android smartphones and has a line of smart cameras to boot, so it should be a no-brainer for it to make an Android-powered smart camera, right?

Except Nikon just beat it to the punch with the new Coolpix S800c, an undeniably cool camera with built-in WiFi and powered by Android 2.3. There’s also a GPS chip to geo-tag your photos.

Hands-on: New entry-level Nikon D3200 packs 24-megapixel sensor

20 Apr

Now that Nikon has taken care of its top-end customers with the new D4 and D800 DSLRs, it has turned its attention to the entry-level segment of the market.

Camera makers like Canon and Nikon have been going after the burgeoning market of youngsters who want a “cool” DSLR for a while now, and Nikon’s newest entry-level D3200 makes for a very compelling “first camera”.

Nikon will continue selling the affordable D3100 alongside the D3200. Both look nearly identical, so how worthy is this new upgrade?
