Nikon D750 Review @ Neocamera

Tue December 2, 2014 | by Itai Danan

Nikon D750 Review

The D750 is the latest full-frame DSLR from Nikon. It is uniquely optimized to deliver a high-end video performance, capturing full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS and offering a 3.2″ LCD which tilts to frame video from above or below. It is based on a 24 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with wide sensitivity range, from ISO 50 all the way to 51200, when expanded.

Nikon D750 Review

This professional camera shares DNA with the top-of-the-line D810, including its EXPEED 4 processor which delivers unmatched image-parameters to control rendition of colors and details without processing from RAW. This lets it take advantage of the 87-deep JPEG buffer for 6.5 FPS continuous shooting.

Neocamera just published an express review of the Nikon D750. Read it to find out how this camera performs and how well Nikon managed to balance its  performance of still and video.

Nikon’s Total Production of NIKKOR Lenses for Interchangeable Lens Cameras Reaches 90 Million at the End of October 2014

Tue November 4, 2014

nikkor-lenses

This video presents NIKKOR Lens Technology.

Take a look into the innovative technology that goes into NIKKOR lenses and see why professionals around the world settle for nothing less than NIKKOR lenses.

PRESS RELEASE

Total Production of NIKKOR Lenses for Interchangeable Lens Cameras Reaches 90 Million

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that the total production of NIKKOR lenses(1) for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras reached the ninety million milestone at the end of October 2014. Additionally, production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the autofocus motor developed exclusively by Nikon, recently reached fifty million.

In 1959, Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K) released the Nikon F as well as its first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, including the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2. Since then, the NIKKOR tradition has continued. Nikon continues to actively release new NIKKOR lenses utilizing advanced technologies cultivated over its long history, while further expanding its lineup of lenses for the Nikon 1 compact interchangeable lens camera system. Since reaching the eighty-five million lens milestone in January 2014, production of NIKKOR lenses continues at a steady rate.

In addition, total production of NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) has reached fifty million. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics, which achieves extremely quiet autofocus photography. In just eighteen years since the 1996 release of the Ai AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/2.8D IF-ED, which was one of the first lenses to employ SWM technology, a total of 72(2) lenses equipped with a SWM and covering a broad range of focal lengths have been released for both FX and DX-format DSLR cameras.

In September 2014, Nikon responded to a variety of user needs by adding the new ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED to its already robust lineup of fast f/1.8 fixed focal length lenses for FX-format cameras. The new 20mm f/1.8 lens utilizes the latest optical design technologies to achieve superior resolution, while the adoption of Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat controls ghost and flare. Lightweight and extremely portable, Nikon’s newest ultra-wide angle lens is ideal for fulfilling one’s photographic vision.
