PMA 2009 Rumor : Nikon new entry-level DSLR’s D5000

PMA 2009 Rumor : Nikon new entry-level DSLR’s D5000

Rumor at best, and this time coming from a Korean digital camera community forum: someone claimed to have received information from another person who’s working at Nikon headquarter about a new DLSR to be unveil on the opening of PMA 2009. That sounds familiar with all the second-hand stories been told before any major digital camera shows, right? Let's get to the story. That new model oddly, dubs D5000, and inherits the rather depressing no in-body’s AF motor likes the D40 and D60, hence the Entry-Level. However, it’s slightly upscale in performance level, and is neck to neck with current D90.

Nikon releases AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens

Nikon releases AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G lens

Nikon rolls out an AF-S prime lens F1.4G 50 mm in celebrating the company’s 75th anniversary of Nikkor Optics. You would think they came out with at least one stop faster Nikkor at its third quarter century milestone. Perhaps there are more to come later. It does feature a silent Wave Motor for faster and quite focusing; the built-in focus motor will support its entry-level Digital SLR D60/D40x/D40 that built without an in-body AF motor. $435.95 will secure you the new Nikkor when it hits the shops in December.

Nikon Unveils D60 DLSR

Nikon Unveils D60 DLSR

The Nikon D60 gets official today, a few minor changes compare to predecessor D40x. It uses the same physical body design with similar features like 10.2 mp CCD sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 3200, 2.5 inch LCD display and shutter speed range of 1/4000s to 30 seconds.

Sigma rolls out Nikon mounted 18-200mm F3.5-F6.3 DC

Sigma rolls out Nikon mounted 18-200mm F3.5-F6.3 DC

Nikon D40’s is getting another friendly wide range zoom lens. Sigma announces a reduced size and lighter weight version of 18-200mm F3.5-F6.3 DC for Nikon. The additional built-in AF motor will grant the 18-200’s Nikon APS-C DSLR compatibility including D40/D40x. Unfortunately, Optical Stabilizer feature will be removed to shave 215g of weight and size reduction from 3.1”x3.9” to 2.8”x3.0” compare to existing version. The rest are pretty much similar to OS version except a slight increment of maximum magnification but 3 lens elements less. No mention of price and availability yet but we expect to see a much lower price compare to last model. A word of advice, avoid D40. You’ll get better choice of AF lens.

Google+ gains improved RAW to JPEG conversion

Google allows for full-sized photo backups -- including the newly launched functionality from desktop -- on its social network, something it says results in a lot of Google+ users storing RAW photo files. When RAW photographs are viewed, a RAW-to-JPEG conversion takes place so that file size is kept low and the speed of the service is faster. Today the company has announced an improvement to this, boosting quality.
