Top 10 Nikon Cameras
Nikon is one of the leaders in the Digital SLR market today and over the years, Nikon has delivered to the market loads of great products at prices a notch under its major competitors. With products from the entry to the professional level, Nikon caters to all kinds of consumers from absolute beginners to the more serious photographers with quality that can and will compete in the digital photography world. Let’s take a run-down at the top 10 Nikon DSLRs.
Nikon D90 Taking the top spot on the list is Nikon’s D90. This mid-range camera is the upgrade to the 10 megapixel D80. Although the jump for a higher resolution, just a 2 mega-pixel difference, wasn’t that significant, the D90 still packs features that D80 users might just want to upgrade.Such a feature new to the D90 is its video capability. While taking high definition videos is great, the larger 3-inch LCD screen makes it an even better experience.
Nikon D5000 The D5000 is a relatively new addition to Nikon’s entry level line-up. Sporting the same sensor with the D90, it can also shoot videos at 720p but is limited only to 5 minutes per clip. Being an entry-level DSLR, it’s cheaper than the D90 and it’s Canon contender. New to this model is it’s variangle, 2.7-inch LCD screen.
Nikon D300 DX An upgrade to the D300, the D300 DX sports a bigger 3-inch LCD screen built with tempered glass. A more robust body, this pro-model camera is one of 2009’s best sellers.
Nikon D60 After the D40 debuted as Nikon’s first entry-level DSLR, its success was then followed by the D60. The D60 comes with a bigger image sensor, and a great Active Dust Reduction System which removes dust from the sensor.
Nikon D80 The D80, an upgrade from the ground-breaking D70, takes a leap from 6 megapixels to 10. Although it essentially has the same body build as the D70 and the D70s, the D80 is a bit smaller but not compromising performance and quality.
Nikon D200 Inheriting its functions from the pro-model D2 line, the D200 was made to contain new innovative Nikon technology. Essentially, the D200 is like a compact, less pricier D2x.
Nikon D700 The D700, another superb camera in the professional line, is built with new FX-format sensor which almost equals the full-frame cameras out there. Live View capable, shoot through the D700’s tempered glass TFT LCD screen.
Nikon D3 The D3 is no joke. It’s built for the very serious of all photographers, that enjoy speed and performance. Capable of shooting 9 frames per second, Nikon kept the sports photographers in mind when they designed the D3.
Nikon D2Xs Replacing the D2X, the D2Xs keeps some of the forms of the D2X with more than just a little upgrade and tweaks. Now with a better battery life, a larger LCD screen, and in-camera post-processing features like cropping.
Nikon D3X After the highly-praised D3 come the D3X upgrade. New for 2009, this new to the pro-line can shoot twice bigger images than the D3. Sporting a 24.5 mega-pixel sensor and capable of holding two CF cards at the same time for more storage!
