Nikon D4 Preview

Jared Polin from FroKnowsPhoto.comgave this preview of the Nikon D4. It’s a very good preview from when he had a chance to see it at a show. He has me sold.

BTW, Polin’s site is well worth following. He has an engaging presence and seems to be genuinely passionate about what he does. He often features videos of himself with his grandma, Lil.

D-Movie Mode Video with National Geographic Traveler Photographer Bob Krist

Since video is all the rage, I wanted to pass along this video of D-Movie Mode Nikon photography by Bob Krist. This is from the Nikon School DVD.

Actually there are several videos with tips about making videos with your Nikon SLR. If you have a Nikon and you don’t know much about video like lens selection, image stabilization or other topics, these might be just the thing you need for some summer videos with your Nikon camera.

KatzEye Replacement Focusing Screens

I was looking around for replacement focusing screens and ran into KatzEye Optics. Everything I’ve seen has been positive so far. So I thought I’d pass this along.

Their replacement screens cover many different DSLRs from several manufacturers including Leica, Pentax, Olympus, Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Panasonic and Samsung.

The attraction for me is the enhanced focusing ability when using manual focus lenses. DSLR focusing screens are sub-optimal for manual focusing.

One nice thing about them is that they have a service to replace the screen for you. This is wonderful news for those that might be a wee bit nervous about accidentally damaging the sensitive parts of the camera.

I have not used their product yet, but do intend to.

Here is a review I found on the KatzEye focusing screen for a Canon DSLR.
