Nikon has been a cornerstone brand of the photography industry for decades. Isn’t it time you picked one up?
Nikon has been around for YEARS. It was actually originally founded in 1917 under the name Japan Optical Industries Co., Ltd, but they changed their name to Nikon in 1988 after the huge successes that they had with their cameras. And talk about success! For nearly 30 years, Nikon’s F-series SLRs were the most widely used small-format cameras among professional photographers as well as by the U.S. space program. Nikon popularized many features in professional SLR photography, such as the modular camera system with interchangeable lenses, viewfinders, motor drives, and data backs; integrated light metering and lens indexing; electronic strobe flashguns instead of expendable flashbulbs; electronic shutter control; evaluative multi-zone “matrix” metering; and built-in motorized film advance. Basically, when you think of any film-based SLR camera, Nikon was there first, offering the features that we all care about.
Let’s talk about the different Nikons that are available. My personal dream camera is the Nikon D3300 DSLR camera. Being kind of a girly-girl, I absolutely adore the fact that this camera comes in a beautiful red color. But besides the colors, it comes with an awesome AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens. This lens is capable of capturing things with ease, right down to the tiniest detail, it captures high-resolution images up to 6000 x 4000 pixels. That’s way more pixels than you will ever need, no matter how many birthdays, graduations, or vacations you might be attending and be “VolunTold” to take pictures of with your awesome Nikon camera. This particular camera also has a 3″ LCD screen, records in HD video, and has Optical Image Stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake and vibration to minimize blurring in your shots.
After you have gotten your Nikon camera, be it the D3300, the D3200, or whichever model you are interested in, the next step you might want to take is to get some different lenses for your new camera.
