    A week in reviews: May 20 - 24

    By 25 May 2013

    This week in reviews, we took a look at a camera that aims to rival the GoPro, both in terms of features but also in terms of pricing. The Veho Muvi comes with a remote and a waterproof housing that can keep it safe in some very deep water. In short,...

    Nikon Coolpix P520 review

    By 24 May 2013

    Superzoom cameras tend to be pricey bits of kit these days. Not so for the Nikon Coolpix P520 - this Coolpix sure doesn't hold back on the zoom, yet cuts back on the price compared to many of its competitors. We were already fond of the previous Coolpix,...

    Nikon Coolpix P330 review

    By 2 April 2013

    Nikon's putting a lot into the Coolpix range of late. The P330 model, which updates the previous P310, isn't a gentle nudge forward in the company's "performance" range, it's a far bigger step up thanks to the P330's inclusion of a larger 1/1.7-inch sensor...

    Nikon Coolpix A review

    By 26 March 2013

    Coolpix is rising up through the ranks and the introduction of the new king of the range - the Coolpix A - sure does show Nikon's commitment to the brand. But this Coolpix is far from your average compact. It may be small and light, but it comes loaded...

    Nikon D7100 review

    By 21 March 2013

    Cameras are evolving. The Nikon D7100 is testament to that - it not only employs enough top specs to rival even the well-established D300S from Nikon's own range but, and much like the Nikon D800E, has removed the low-pass filter from its imaging equation....

    Nikon Coolpix A: The first sample images

    By 18 March 2013

    When Nikon unveiled its Coolpix A it was something of a surprise. A surprise that the Japanese camera company had gone and made a compact with an APS-C size sensor - or "Nikon DX format" as the company calls it - at its core. But it was as much a surprise...

    Nikon Coolpix P330 finally brings larger sensor size to the P-series

    Nikon's first APS-C sensor compact camera: Introducing the Nikon Coolpix A

    By 5 March 2013

    Nikon's only gone and "done a Fuji" by unveiling its first APS-C sensor compact camera: the Nikon Coolpix A. We're rather excited by this small-bodied, large-sensor compact. In Nikon speak, the Coolpix A has the same "DX" sensor size - measuring 23.6...

    Nikon 1 J3 review

    By 11 February 2013

    The Nikon 1 J3 came as something of a surprise when it was announced little over four months after we first saw the J2 model. Clearly it's not only the camera's burst mode that's fast, it's also the whole series' apparent shelf life too. READ: Nikon 1...

    Nikon's been reinventing its 1-series of compact system camera with a whole batch of new releases of late. The Nikon 1 V2 is the top-spec model in the series which incorporates a built-in electronic viewfinder and is, on the face of it, targeted at the...

    By 4 February 2013

    The Nikon D5200 fills the high-resolution gap in the company's middle-spec DSLR space by squeezing a brand new 24-megapixel CMOS sensor into the new model. It was inevitable, really; such a resolution gap didn't really exist until Nikon launched the 24-megapixel...

    Nikon's flurry of camera kit continues, this time with the S31 and AW110 Coolpix waterproof cameras. The AW110 is by far the more exciting of the two, being more like a GoPro than a conventional camera. The S31 is more a tough cam for the family, designed...
