    Nikon Coolpix P310 review

    By 30 May 2012

    The Nikon Coolpix P310 is the company’s latest take on its high-end compact camera. Like the P300 that came before it, the P310’s biggest sell is its 24-100mm f/1.8-4.9 lens. But unlike the burgeoning competition the P310 doesn’t have a larger-than-average...

    Nikon D3200 review

    By 11 May 2012

    The Nikon D3200 set tongues wagging when announced last month. Its headline-grabbing 24-megapixel sensor promised to be unlike anything the entry-level DSLR market had seen before. But in a world where the megapixel isn’t always king, can the D3200...

    Nikon D3200: The first sample images

    By 8 May 2012

    The Nikon D3200, with its huge 24-megapixel resolution CMOS sensor, was announced to the world in the middle of April.  It's turned a lot of heads and raised just as many questions: what is the image quality like; and is it a true entry-level DSLR? Pocket-lint...

    Nikon Coolpix P510 review

    By 30 April 2012

    Nikon’s been a little late to the party with its line of superzoom cameras over the last couple of years. But its latest, the Coolpix P510, crams in a huge 24-1000mm (equivalent) lens - making it the longest zoom compact on the market. That’ll be...

    Opt for a truly pocket-friendly point-and-shoot camera and you’re often settling for a compromise: small size for zoom ability. But Nikon has successfully avoided this with the Coolpix S6300, which will slip into your jeans - even those of the pornographically...

    Nikon D700 vs. Nikon D800: Worth the upgrade?

    By 11 April 2012

    On paper there are two factors to the D800 that scream out at you: 1080p video and a 36 megapixel sensor. For some, these are enough already to warrant a purchase of Nikon’s new full-frame DSLR. Others, however, may be erring on the side of caution...

    By 2 April 2012

    Several years ago, Nikon announced the D90 - the first digital SLR that could record video. Clips were short, at under five minutes, and restricted to 720p, but it was the start of a revolution. And we’re not exaggerating, because SLR-based video has...

    By 7 February 2012

    Nikon’s new D800 can shoot broadcast-quality 1080p video, at least that's what they tell us. It damn well needs to, as Canon has had quite a monopoly over video fans with its 5D MK II. On paper the D800 delivers in just about every respect. It trumps...
