Nikon blames smartphones for low camera demand, will close factory

It's no secret that most people prefer using their smartphone's camera rather than a dedicated digital camera. That reality has put a big dent in the compact point-and-shoot camera market, so much so that many major camera companies have had to make big changes in the past few years to stay afloat.

Nikon reveals it’s working on a full-frame mirrorless camera

While camera makers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus have found varying levels of success with the mirrorless camera format, Nikon has been more conservative, limiting its offerings to devices that are closer to the point-and-shoot market.

For them, Nikon is finally launching the full-frame D850 DSLR, who is a heavyweight in features but a speedster in performance.

Nikon D850 announcement could finally happen this week

Admittedly, not everyone is obsessed with smartphones or what will be taking place in the coming weeks.

Nikon D7500 DSLR offers D500 features at a lower price tag

Nikon just recently made a throwback to celebrate its 100th year in the camera business, but that doesn't mean looking back is all that it's going to do this month.

Not many businesses can boast of a century of uninterrupted existence. Some that have lasted that long only managed to survive by turning away from their paths.

Nikon shares D5600 DSLR release and pricing details for US

Back in November, Nikon unveiled its D5600 DLSR camera. At the time, it didn't give us any pricing or release details, but that didn't stop us from taking a few guesses.
