Nikon introduced a new entry-level DSLR this morning: the small, lightweight and portable Nikon D3500. Weighing just under 13 ounces (camera body only), and with dimensions of 4.6 x 3.9 x 2.8 inches, the 24.2MP Nikon D3500 is designed to be a highly portable camera for first-time DSLR users including “parents, travelers and photo enthusiasts,” Nikon said in a press announcement today.

I’ve spent some time in Wisconsin – I used to go water skiing with my cousins on Lake Geneva – and I always thought of it as a beautiful if, somewhat, underrated state. But I never knew how beautiful the Badger State really was until I watched Chris Biela’s gorgeous 4K time-lapse titled “Close,” which he first started shooting in the summer of 2017 and just completed.

Mattias Burling has a bone to pick with some of those negative 6D Mark II reviews, saying he actually thinks it’s a great full frame camera.

We just returned from Japan where Shutterbug was one of a handful of media outlets from the U.S. to attend a press conference announcing the new Nikon Z-series full frame mirrorless camera system. The system, which so far includes the Z 7 and Z 6 mirrorless cameras and a trio of Nikkor Z lenses, is a new addition to Nikon’s imaging product line and, thus, includes a new production process.

Peter McKinnon is one of the most popular photographers on YouTube right now and a seasoned pro who has shot just about everything under the sun. But even he makes mistakes once in a while, which is why he made the below video.

Nikon introduced the new 45.7MP Z 7 full frame mirrorless camera and a trio of Z-mount lenses today and Shutterbug was one of a handful of U.S. press outlets invited to cover the launch event in Tokyo, Japan. After the press conference, we got our hands on a pre-production Nikon Z 7 and Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens and shot with it during a “touch and try” session offered to select journalists.

On the heels of the big announcement of its new Z cameras, Nikon introduced a trio of new lenses designed specifically for those full frame mirrorless models. The three new lenses use the new larger-diameter mount of the 45.7MP Z 7 and 24.5MP Z 6, which is designed to let more light in for improved edge-to-edge sharpness and better image quality compared to some competing mirrorless camera systems using smaller mounts.

In one of the biggest digital imaging announcements in the history of the company, Nikon just unveiled the 45.7MP Z7 and 24.5MP Z6 full frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras along with three new Nikkor Z lenses, which feature a new, larger-diameter mounting system. Nikon also introduced the Mount Adapter FTZ, which allows photographers to use the new Z 7 and Z 6 cameras with 360 existing Nikkor F lenses.

We always like it when photographers and other creatives use low-end camera gear to achieve high-end results.

With news that Nikon and, possibly, Canon will be coming out with full frame mirrorless cameras, many dyed-in-the-wool DSLR users are considering making the switch to mirrorless. While mirrorless might be the wave of the future, there’s still lots to consider if you’re thinking about making the switch from DSLRs.
