The D7500 is Nikon's latest upper mid-range DSLR, successor to the D7200 and slotting between the D5600 and D500. It inherits the 20.9 Megapixel sensor and image processor of the D500, to deliver the same image quality and 4k video. The 51 point AF of the D7200 remains, but it now shoots faster at 8fps. It loses the twin SD…

The Nikon COOLPIX B700 is a mid-range super-zoom with a 60x range and 16 Megapixels. It has a hinged screen, records 4k video and features built-in Wifi with Nikon's SnapBridge technology. It's a good specification for the money, but up against compelling competition. Find out of it's worth spending the extra in Ken's review!

It's a good specification for the money, but up against compelling competition. Does the B500 hit a sweetspot? Find out in Ken's review!

The Nikon 105mm f1.4E ED is a unique lens. It is the only current f1.4 105mm lens for full-frame bodies and it delivers beautiful-looking images with very attractive Bokeh and very good contrast and sharpness across the full-frame sensor, even with the aperture opened to f1.4. This performance coupled with the build-quality of a professional Nikon lens and a…

The Nikon DL 18-50mm is a compact camera aimed at enthusiasts with a 20 Megapixel 1in sensor, tilting OLED touchscreen, 4k video and an unusually wide zoom equivalent to 18-50mm. Announced in February 2016 alongside two other models differentiated mostly by their lens ranges, the DL series represents Nikon's much-anticipated entry into the now popular 1in fixed lens market, pioneered…

The AF-S Nikkor 24mm f1.4G ED is the widest lens in Nikon's lineup of professional f1.4 primes. It is also its most expensive. For that price you get a lens that delivers good to very good sharpness, moderate distortions, and a good Bokeh - at least for a 24mm lens.
For an optical design that dates from 2010 the lens…

The AF-S Nikkor 24mm f1.8G ED is Nikon's latest addition to its series of f1.8 primes. You give up 2/3 of a stop of maximum aperture compared to Nikon's 24/1.4G but for that it's smaller, lighter, and comes at half the price. So for those of us with limited capacity in their wallets or their luggage it should be…

The Nikon COOLPIX L840 updates the year older COOLPIX L830, extending the optical zoom from 34x to 38x and adding Wifi and NFC. There's a new Snap-back zoom button, full resolution continuous shooting gets a little bit of a boost, the number of shots you can get from a set of AA batteries is increased and there's a new…

The Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f2.8E ED VR is a pro-grade standard zoom which delivers very good performance overall, with astonishingly good FX-corners. It also adds image-stabilization that works very well. So what's not to like about the successor to one of Nikon's best-selling full-frame DSLR lenses?
Well, the first copy of the lens that I had for testing was decentered, the…

The Nikon AF-S 200-500/5.6E VR is a worthy addition to Nikon's line-up of super-telephoto zooms. Optically it outperforms Nikon's AF-S 80-400/4.5-5.6G VRii and the competing 150-600mm zooms from Sigma and Tamron at every focal length although the differences may not be too great in some cases.
With a price that puts it comfortably below the AF-S 80-400mm and is comparable…

The COOLPIX S33 is a budget waterproof camera aimed at 'all the family'. It's a fraction of the cost of many other models, making it a good choice if you want something the kids can use without having to worry too much about what might happen to it. In any case, you don't have to worry about it being…

The Nikon COOLPIX A130 is the most waterproof compact currently on the market. With a depth rating of 30 meters it'll go twice as deep as the Olympus TOUGH TG4 and TG860. If you want to dive deeper with a camera you'll need to think about a conventional model with an expensive waterproof housing.
But it's not all about diving…

The COOLPIX S9900 is a more affordable competitor to the best selling Panasonic Lumix TZ70 ZS50 and the Sony HX90V. Both of those are premium compact super-zooms that are attracting buyers with a high level specification and a degree of control that will appeal to serious hobby photographers.
For many though, the most important thing about a compact super-zoom is…

The D5500 is aimed at photographers looking for a step-up from a budget DSLR without the expense or complication of a higher-end model.
