Nikon: Announces 10.2 MP Nikon D200 Digital SLR

Nov 1st . Nikon has today officially introduced the 10.2 megapixel Nikon D200 digital SLR. The Nikon D200 is a successor to the popular Nikon D100 (2002) and is positioned as an upgrade to the Nikon D70s, and will appeal to a wide range of advanced hobby photographers, semi-professionals and those who are looking for a durable back up to their Nikon D2X, Nikon D2Hs or other Nikon digital SLR. Having had only a few days so far to familiarize ourselves with an actual pre-production Nikon D200 digital SLR combined with the new AF-S DX 18-200mm VR IF-ED Nikkor zoom lens, we must say that the handling and response of the Nikon D200 is quite impressive. With a fast 0.15 second power-up, a shutter time lag of only 50 milliseconds and a shortened viewfinder blackout time of 105 milliseconds, combined with a high-speed continuous shooting capability of up to 5fps, the Nikon D200 is designed to allow you to capture those sudden unexpected moments...

Comparison: Nikon D70s DSLR Compared to Canon Digital Rebel XT Side By Side

Oct 8th. With the increasing popularity of digital SLR cameras, we have had a number of requests to update our earlier Nikon D70 vs Canon Digital Rebel comparison to reflect the newer and current Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and the Nikon D70s digital SLR. Clearly existing owners of Canon or Nikon equipment will have a strong predetermined brand preference. For those trying to decide which camera system to buy, however, we have now completed an overview of the Nikon D70s digital SLR compared to the Canon Digital Rebel XT, including a comparison between the Nikon D70s AF-S DX 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 IF-ED kit zoom lens and the Canon Rebel XT EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF kit zoom lens...See full story

Nikon: Coolpix P2 Digital Camera Image Samples Posted

Oct 3rd. We have managed to get our hands on one of Nikon's new compact 5.1 megapixel Coolpix P2 Wi-Fi enabled digital cameras. We have now posted a few Coolpix P2 sample images in our gallery. So far the results look pretty good. The out of camera pictures shot in plain Auto mode look nice and sharp when going direct to print, eliminating the need for necessarily having to use a computer. You can connect directly from the camera to a Pictbridge compatible printer, or the optional Nikon PD-10 Wireless print adapter. We have started working on a full review of the Nikon Coolpix P2 and hope to have it completed soon... See full story.
