    Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f4E TC1.4 FL ED VR Announcement


    Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is the first Nikon lens with a built-in teleconverter, which is the successor of the 200-400mm model. The lens is supposed to be used for sports and wildlife photography.

    After switching on the converter, the lens changes into the one with the focal length of 252-560mm. It of course reduces the brightness by one degree. After connecting to the cameras with the APS-C sensor, we get a much more interesting equivalent of focal length of  378-840mm. Unfortunately, then the lens is going to be darker.



    1). Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f4E TC1.4 FL ED VR


    The optical system of the new 180-400mm f4E consists of 27 lenses placed in 19 groups. One of them is a fluorite one (the coating responsible for cleanliness) and 8 of them are low-dispersion ones. The lens is also supposed to be sharper than average and a minimum focus distance is 200mm.

    A 9-blade aperture and an effective system of vibration reduction with the effectiveness of 4EV has been used in the lens. Of course, in this class of lenses we have a possibility of switching between various modes.

    Conventionally, a quiet ultrasonic AF motor is responsible for focus adjustment. We can reduce the focus distance up to 6m with the use of a button on the body. With this lens we can also use inserting filters.

    This magnesium lens is neither compact nor light. Its weight is 3.5kg and it has the dimensions of 128x363mm.

    And the most interesting part… As one could expect, the lens is not cheap. It costs $12399 and it’s going to be available in March. If you think that the price of this lens is cosmic, you should compare it to a slightly more expensive Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 :-)

      Today we've got to know the details of a new Nikon camera - Coolpix P1000. P1000, apart from the typical functions, such as recording 4K videos, stands out since with the use of it we can photograph craters on the moon and top-secret objects on the sky over Area 51.

      1). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      A special feature of Nikon P1000 is the lens capable of 125x zooming, with the equivalent of 24 - 300mm and the light of f/2.8-8. The producer assures that thanks to these parameters we will be able to take photographs of craters on the moon. Coming back to earth, the camera has been designed for wildlife and airplane photographers as well as the photographers of other far-away objects which we cannot approach. The recipients of the camera should be also people who cannot afford a camera and a lens with similar parameters.  

      2). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      Nikon Coolpix P1000 has been constructed based on 16-Mp 1/2.3'' CMOS sensor which makes it possible to do continuous shooting with the speed of 7 f/s. Photographs can be saved in RAW format and videos can be recorded in 4K with the speed of 30 f/s, and in Full HD with the speed of 60 f/s.

      3). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      The viewfinder of Nikon P1000 has been constructed  in OLED technology and it has 2.36Mp resolution. The improvements for vloggers have also  been introduced: the camera is equipped with a rotating LCD screen (not a touch one) and a microphone connector. Photographs and videos can be sent via WiFi and Bluetooth. The company's Snapbridge application, enabling, apart from data transfer, remote control of many of the camera's functions, is supposed to facilitate this process.

      4). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      Nikon Coolpix P1000 is not a small compact camera with a long lens. The camera has the dimensions of 146mm x 119mm x 181mm and it weighs 1415g. Thanks to these parameters, the camera will match full-size flash cameras.

      5). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      Nikon P1000 will be available on sale in September and it will cost $999.

      6). Nikon Coolpix P1000
      You can find full specification of new Nikon P1000 in our database and  also you can pre-order this camera here.

Similar body size to the Sony a7 camera but with better ergonomics and a better grip. 5-axis in-body stabilization 9fps New mirrorless mount that will allow for f/0.95 lenses (see the NOCT trademark and f/0.9 lens patents). Memory cards: XQD and CF Express (ProGrade is coming with a CF Express card). EVF resolution: 3.6MP Initially, three lenses will be announced: 24-70mm, 35mm and 50mm. Pricing: The 45MP model will be around $4,000/€4,000 in a kit with the 24-70mm lens. The 25MP model will be under $3,000/€3,000 (also with a lens).
