Nikon Dslr Camera Description
Long gone are the days of traditional film photography, that aside for being difficult was extremely expensive as well. There is no denying the fact that if given in the right hands, the photo quality of a traditional camera will be far more superior to that of a digital camera. The film also captures better details in whites and blacks than digital cameras but apart from the many advantages, the conventional form of photography came with many downsides. It involved a long expensive process from buying costly film to paying for developing it and even if you had your own darkroom for developing photos, it was an expense of its own. Film photography also came with the constraints of a limited number of photos that could be taken from a single roll.
In the late 1990s, the first consumer-level digital camera was invented and by 2003, digital cameras became so mainstream that they were incorporated into mobile phones too. People gravitated to digital photography slowly but were won over once they got to know the faster turn around time involved. One of the first companies to offer digital cameras to consumers is the Japanese giant, Nikon, which to this date is considered one of the best digital camera manufacturers of the world. Nikon has several categories for its DSLR camera line which are intended for different types of users.
The entry-level Nikon DSLRs use the Nikon DX format which is another name for APS-C image sensor format that is approximately 24x16 mm. Some famous entry-level Nikon DSLRs are D3500, D3400 and D3300. All three of these aptly equipped entry-level Nikon DSLRs use a 24.2-megapixel camera sensor. Most of the newer entry-level versions of Nikon DSLR are equipped with WIFI capabilities as well as Full HD and HD recording. The Upper entry-level consumer models of Nikon DSLRs, as well as two midrange cameras, are the only DSLRs with the articulated tilt-and-swivel display. The three most popular upper entry-level Nikon DSLRs are the D5600. D5500 and D5300. While all three models feature a 24 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor, they all are equipped with WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity and D5500 is the first Nikon DSLR to feature a touchscreen display. The tilt and swivel displays allow for unobtrusive filming from unusual perspectives.
Midrange and professional level Nikon DSLRs come with DX sensors and are more advanced than the entry-level Nikon DSLRs. Most of the cameras in this category are fully loaded and highly equipped devices. The most recent Nikon DSLR in this category is the Nikon D7500 which is a Nikon DX-format 20.9 megapixel CMOS sensor camera and uses the EXPEED5 image processor. Most of these Nikon DSLRs are equipped with 4K shooting capabilities as well as Viewfinder with 100% frame coverage and higher magnification. This category of Nikon DSLRs is further divided into two segments which cater to the High-end Prosumers and the High-end Professionals.
The high-end Prosumer line of Nikon DSLRs is targeted at pro-consumers who are looking for non-heavy duty, basic mechanical/weather resistance and electronic features of the professional cameras while the high-end Professional line of Nikon DSLRs are heavy-duty fully loaded weather-resistant cameras, intended for the pure professional audience. The popular DSLRs in the pro-consumer category are D850, D500 and D810A while the D5, D4S and D4 are few of the best heavy-duty professional Nikon DSLRs.
