Using Nikon Z7 for street photography

images.nikonians.org-galleries-data-23519-Gulliver-Playful-April-2014-110.jpgA new year has started and we are full of inspiration, kick-starting it with some great photography while learning new things.

Connie has been to Cuba using her Z7 for street photography and she shares her story with us in her latest premium article, while JRP has found a study claiming that making a picture a day and sharing it improves well being -- We both believe the authors of the study are onto something.

I am wishing you a terrific start of the new year,
Bo (bgs)

How do you dress up in the cold for photography?

hans-ztz-2FND7_8639-110.JPGHow do you prepare for the outdoor shoot when it is getting colder outside? For us on the northern hemisphere of our beautiful, blue planet this might be a relevant question this time of the year.

A basic truth for nearly any outdoor activity is that it makes sense to dress in layers. Doing so helps you to shed some insulation when you are getting warmer, and it is easier to stay dry that way.

I personally prefer fabrics made of natural fibers over synthetic ones when feasible, but there are great synthetic materials available. Gloves is one major area for us photographers. The big, warm ones can hardly be worn when shooting while the thinner ones are keeping the fingers agile only as long as they are not too cold.

You may enjoy jrp's thoughts on this topic in our articles.

The whole Nikonians Team is wishing you a great holiday season, with lots of hard parcels and golden boxes.
Bo (bgs) and Ramón (jrp)

The specs of the next digital cameras

Bob-Chadwick-BlueAngels-F18-Hornet-20140406_20140326_Fun_n_Sun_32-Edit-2-110px.jpgOur community has experienced a tremendous change on the internet, from being an early player back in the year 2000 where many were still "not connected" to today with billions of internet users.

Today we have a glut of information, provided by many for free, or paid by someone, often a less visible party in either cash, crypto-coins, equipment or favors. In this large "volume of data", whom can one really trust? What is their agenda? Why are they telling me X -- is it because they want to sell Y? What is really "good information" vs. "I am not totally, 100% sure what I am talking about, but I say it anyway" type of content?
