The art of portraiture often requires a lens that delivers not just optical precision, but natural reproductions of depth and depiction for the most impressive results. In response, Nikon has introduced the three-dimensional high fidelity design concept.
The Multi-CAM 20K is an intelligent, high-performance autofocus (AF) sensor module providing Nikon DSLR cameras with even wider and more accurate AF coverage.
When making the change from a smartphone or a compact camera to a DSLR, having a comprehensive understanding of how your camera’s autofocus (AF) system works and how you can use it are the first steps to controlling the quality of your image.
Cameras are equipped with advanced systems that help users capture any moment with increased accuracy, even under less-than-ideal lighting conditions. In order to find the optimal amount of exposure for each scene, the camera performs a crucial evaluation of the light intensity with the help of the RGB sensor.
A format commonly used by videographers and media professionals, uncompressed movie data is the preferred way to capture accurate, crystal-clear and high-quality footage.
SnapBridge is a mobile platform that allows users to conveniently transfer pictures taken on their Nikon camera to a smart device on-the-go. Supported by Bluetooth® Low Energy technology, SnapBridge transforms the way you create and share visual content into a connected, mobile experience.
Continuous shooting can pose a series of challenges to photographers, of which inconsistent exposure is a common issue. To address this, various NIKKOR lenses incorporate an electromagnetic aperture mechanism that provides highly accurate diaphragm control for more stable auto exposure control.
In an age where video content is the new language in consumer culture, creating content in 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) brings several advantages to the table.
Lighting can be one of the most challenging aspects of photography. An external flash with radio capabilities not only gives photographers the upper hand to counter tricky lighting conditions, but also enables them to experiment with different lighting techniques and expand their creative horizons.

Mikko Lagerstedt takes the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED into the depths of the night, sharing his first-hand experience with tackling a new lens.
Vibration Reduction (VR) is an image stabilization technology that minimizes blur caused by camera shake. Using a VR NIKKOR lens can result in sharp images in low light, under windy conditions or when using a physically large NIKKOR lens, at up to four stops slower (with a VR II lens) than a non-VR lens.
Used on Nikon SLRs and NIKKOR lenses from the introduction of the Nikon F in 1959 to current models, the bayonet-type F-Mount is the communication link between Nikon SLRs and NIKKOR lenses.
Active D-Lighting optimizes high contrast images to restore the shadow and highlight details that are often lost when strong lighting increases the contrast between bright and dark areas of an image.
What I see through a NIKKOR lens is never an issue; it's whatever I choose. But what I see on a NIKKOR lens can be another matter, and that's what brought me not long ago to the office of Nikon senior technical manager Lindsay Silverman. As a writer and editor in the photo industry, I'm well aware of Lindsay's expertise.
Reading about all of the different lens types and abbreviations might be a bit overwhelming, so we'll try to simplify this as much as possible. You're interested in one of the latest NIKKOR lenses, but aren't sure if it will work with your camera.
