Nikon CoolPix railway museum photos

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 4th, July 2007

When testing the Nikon Coolpix P5000 digital compact camera, I took it along when I visited a piece of Dutch railway history, the Railway museum in Utrecht. The Railway museum is located in the Maliebaan station and gives visitors a glimpse of the past. Most of the test pictures were taken inside the railway museum, including a large depot where diverse old trains stand established. The lighting conditions were full of contrast ; darkness between the trains with spots of sunlight from the roof here and there. Although the Nikon Coolpix P5000 compact camera has an optical image stabilizer, I had to use a high ISO regularly to achieve the desired shutter speed or aperture.

Arches National Park Pictures

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 4th, July 2007

I have had the Nikon Coolpix S500 digital compact camera at our office for a long time, and I have made a lot of test shots during my visit the Arch National Park in the Unites States. The new Nikon CoolPix S500 digital camera was officially introduced at the start of 2007, just before the opening of the PMA Show in Las Vegas. The Nikon Coolpix S500 offers a resolution of 7.1 effective Megapixels, an advanced in-camera image processing and a 3x optical zoom lens (range of 35-105mm on 35mm camera). The Nikon CoolPix S500 powers up in a quick 0.8 seconds and has a practically imperceptible shutter release time lag of less than 0.005 seconds. Interesting specifications packed in a very compact and solid housing and most of all fully automatic operation.

Nikon D40x

Posted by: Mark Peters Tuesday 6th, March 2007

Nikon has introduced the D40x : a sister model to the D40 for anyone who needs more pixels, to for example, make enlargements of a crop of their files or to practise digital photography as a serious hobby. Nikon D40x has the same functionality and user friendliness as the D40, but now has a 10.2 Megapixel CDD image sensor.

Nikon D40 Review

Posted by: Mark Peters Thursday 16th, November 2006

Nikon's newest weapon is the D40, and Nikon is using it to raise the stakes. The Nikon D40 DSLR is primarily meant for consumers who want more than a compact camera. In the profile of the target group, Nikon sees a family person between 30 and 70 years old. The typical user of the Nikon D40 is looking for a camera that stimulates creative qualities and reacts quicker than a compact camera.

Nikon Monarch Binoculars

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Wednesday 30th, August 2006

Nikon is pleased to announce the introduction of five new binoculars, including the 8.5x56DCF, 10x56DCF and 12x56DCF models and 8x36DCF and 10x36DCF models, adding to the highly regarded Monarch series. Boasting large 56mm diameters, the 8.5x56DCF, 10x56DCF and 12x56DCF models deliver high performance. The generous diameter means they are ideal for use in low lighting conditions, making these new models a perfect option for birders early in the morning or late at night. The 8x36DCF and 10x36DCF feature 36mm diameters to combine excellent performance with portability. All the models are waterproof up to 1m/3.3 ft for 5 minutes. The binoculars are durable for use in all conditions.

Nikon Coolpix S10 preview

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Saturday 26th, August 2006

The Nikon Coolpix S10 is one of a new series of Coolpix digital cameras launched by Nikon and introduced before the start of Photokina 2006. In addition to the series of Nikon Coolpix cameras to which the Nikon Coolpix S10 belongs, Nikon is also presenting a new digital SLR camera: the Nikon D80. In doing so, Nikon has added an interesting series of digital cameras to its range that are sure to arouse the interest of a great many consumers. One can't help noticing that there is still no digital compact camera for serious photographers, a camera where aperture, shutter speed and other functions can be operated manually. A compact camera like this would have a price tag similar to that of Nikon's entry-level D-SLR model, the Nikon D50. We may assume that this is the main reason behind the absence of a segment of advanced compact cameras for semi-professionals. Still, the Nikon Coolpix S10 has some very interesting functions; 6 Megapixels, one for Nikon's new Image Sensor Shift VR (Vibration Reduction) to correct undesired camera movements, a 10x tilting optical zoom (equivalent to 38 - 380mm in a 35mm) and a 2.5 inch format LCD screen. We had the chance to work with a pre-production model, to enable us to describe the camera in greater detail.

Nikon Coolpix S10 preview - Part II

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Saturday 26th, August 2006

An LED placed besides the lens serves as an indicator for the self-timer, and more importantly, as an AF assistance illuminator. The AF assistance illuminator will be automatically activated if there is not much surrounding light or if a subject is being photographed in poor lighting conditions. The assistance illuminator has a maximum range of approx. 2.0 m (W) to 2.0 m (T). The assistance illumination will not be activated if turned off in the menu or if the camera is recording in certain modes, such as twilight, night landscape, etc. The Nikon Coolpix S10's assistance illuminator is activated when it is delivered from the factory.
