danbo with nikon d750 by cormozy
If you own a D750 then this will interest you.
The latest firmware update is meant to improve reliability of your camera. Nikon were no more specific than that. Either way it sounds like a good thing.
Download it now from here and follow the instructions to improve your snapping experience.


Nikon working with Apple?

iPhone D4 by swiftmoonphoto
We don't tend to share rumours, nasty habit. We prefer to leave that to Nikon rumours but every so often they come up with something interesting and we thought you ought to read about it.
It could be nothing, it could be something huge or tiny. Who knows?
From Nikon tech in i-phones to a remote shutter button on your apple watch. There are many ideas bouncing around twitter after this little rumour. Nasty rumours….

Is the Nikkor 300mm f4 pf a game changer

This is an interesting little write up of a nature photographers experience with the new Nikkor lens. Richard Peters puts the new light weight yet super powerful PF lens through its paces and comes to some interesting conclusions. Have a read
and decide for yourself if this will change the way you look at pro glass.

Everything-nikon tutorials banner by in-my-viewfinder

Well there should be a tutorial here but CroWelsh has been rather busy and come up with this:


Everything-Nikon is and has been a fantastic group to be a member of, to the point where it is now ... a Super Group! So in an attempt to reflect this huge group status, we admins have (in the free-time we have available) begun a slow, but (hopefully), meaningful process to enhance and develop new or additional ways to engage with members, whose photographic talents span widely across the many genres in the world of Painting with Light.

Everything-Nikon realised that some changes needed to be made in the widening scope of submissions to our galleries, which resulted in the addition of the Everything-Postprocessed Gallery.  We believe this has been appreciated and was 'wanted' by members who go that little bit beyond the scope of Nikon equipment. We think it's a fantastic addition and is proving suc-cessful since it has been wonderfully accepted by the growing number of submissions to that particular gallery.

Now, just to quickly refresh on the ideas and mission at the birth of Everything-Nikon: This group is principally all about the capabilities and technology of Nikon camera equipment and not the reliance upon post-production skills, techniques and software capabilities.
So, with this in mind, Everything-Nikon wants to trial an idea ... something new but in keeping with our original core values.

To draw a long but necessary introduction to its conclusion: Here is our ... belated (as it was hoped to announce this last month) ... but nonetheless ... worthy ... all-brand-spanking-shiny ... and ... new ...

Everything-Nikon Foto Challenge 2015

Theme:        Humanity in a Black & White World


The concept for this challenge has been designed in a manner that pays tribute to the origins of photography (for example; photojournalism, reportage, street), where the world was captured in an editorial split second, creating a version of reality, what some might call an 'edited reality' ... a perspective of the world.

Interpreting what you see and portraying this perception across to others is a huge challenge.
Your version of reality .. or more to the point, your view on OR of Humanity!

Colour is all around us every day, wherever we humans go, everything we see whether on television, in the shopping mall, out in the wilderness .. everywhere. By choosing a theme that has a wide variety of interpretation but placing particular restrictions in other ways, (by removing the ability to use colour to reach out from your photograph) this challenge is attempting to push you as an artist and to focus your creativity with limitations attached.

We are letting you run free with a 'wide' concept (the 'meaning' of humanity) but restricting the photography to a single, black & white, non-enhanced or manipulated piece of work brings a wider, more leveled, open and balanced angle to the possibility of who becomes the overall winner of this Super Challenge.

May refer to the condition of being human ...
(from Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia -

   Humanity (virtue) - a set of strengths focused on "tending and befriending others"
   Humanities - academic disciplines which study the human condition using analytic, critical, or speculative methods
   The human species - The total world population
   The human condition - the totality of experience of existing as a human
   Human nature - psychological characteristics that members of the humans species have in common

A Black & White World
   Can you portray a colourful world without colour?
   Can you tell a heart-breaking story in a single shot?
   Can you capture everything you want or see by use of the camera alone?

If so, push yourself up-a-notch..
Get creative ...  
Submit your entry ...

Good Luck to all Nikonians

Many thanks for accepting my photo! I really appreciate it. 
I'm more of a wildlife photographer, so this photo is the beginning of my people-portraits. I'm hoping it will work out. It's nice to branch out into different things from time to time!
