I apparently spoke too soon with my post last week about full-frame entrants pushing the once-prized upmarket sensor size down the path toward becoming the “new normal,” as it had historically been throughout much of film era. The news just keeps coming. Fujifilm openly discussed interest in full-frame this week, and Leica for the first time introduced [...]
Nikon and Think Tank will be in the Adorama Pro Imaging section of our NYC store tomorrow, Thursday, June 14th, from 1-6PM. Nikon will be answering questions about its D800 and D4 cameras and giving customers hands on experience with the new full frames. Think Tank will be showing off its latest camera bags, cases [...]
And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. After three and a half years, the D800 has landed. It seems the rumored specs were largely true, and the class-leading 36MP (more than twice its big brother, the D4) sensor was not a pipe dream!

It’s the one reprieve from the breakneck pace of development in almost every other technological niche. The nimble mirrorless market sees a substantial updates for each model at a yearly clip, while entry level cameras [...]
Around the Adoramasphere is our weekly roundup of the internet goings-on of the Adorama family. With an evolutionary enhancement to its highly-regarded portable flash unit, Nikon has announced a replacement for the SB-900. The flashgun addresses the main flaw of its predecessor – a propensity to overheat – with a thermal protection system that slows [...]
David Paul Larson talks with Lindsay Silverman of Nikon about the J1 mirrorless compact camera and the new technology built into the 1 system.
Nikon has announced its long-anticipated mirrorless interchangeable lens camera system, with two models aiming to bridge the gap between its enthusiast point-and-shoot compacts, like the P7100 and P300, and its DSLR market. The ‘CX’ system utilizes a 10MP CMOS sensor with a crop factor 2.5x bigger than the 1/1.7″ sensor found in most enthusiast compacts, while coming [...]
The two features attracting the most scrutiny in the latest faceoff of mid-range DSLRs are low-light performance and HD video capabilities. With that in mind we’ve had a busy couple of days trying to answer the million dollar question of the moment: Between the Nikon D7000 and the Canon 60D, which has the cleanest video [...]
