The D5600, a “entry-level” DSLR that, despite the relatively lower price tag still packs enough features to endear it to budding photographers. Including the ability to immediately copy shots to a smartphone and upload them in an instant.

Nikon offers battery replacement for D500 owners

I dabble in photography, and occasionally shoot performances and events for friends. In addition to my camera, lenses, and tripod, there are some very important things that I pack in my bag. These are extra memory cards, and spare batteries. If I don't have the right lens, or a tripod, I can still shoot pictures. However, if my camera dies, or I run out of space on my memory card, there's nothing I can do. Well it turns out that Nikon D500 owners may run into issues with their batteries dying before they should.

Nikon Long-Zoom COOLPIX cameras make short work of long shots

Taking regular shots, up close and personal, might be no problem even for smartphone cameras. But when it comes to looking afar, you'll definitely need a better shooter.

With zoom levels of 35x, 40x, and 60x, the COOLPIX A900, B500, and B700 will bring any subject to life, near, far, or wherever they are. Plus, Nikon's SnapBridge also makes it easier to share those photos and videos with your smartphone and your friends.
