Inspirational autumn landscapes & Nikon Z7 impressions

20181023_093628_9-spruce-flats-falls_scottashley_110.jpgWe are entering this autumn weekend with some good, inspiring landscape photography and there is a hands-on, first impressions review of the Nikon Z7 by one of our team members.

Member Scott Ashley (scottashley) has been interviewed by Marsha (meadowlark2) in this latest part of our "I Am Nikonians" series. Scott shares some of his great landscape photographs with us.

Read the scottashley Interview


Spruce Flats Falls by Scott Ashley
Nikon D7100, Sigma 8-16mm @f/19, 6s, ISO 200, tripod

Nikonians moderator Jonathan Kandel (JonK) has written up his first impressions after having been using his new Nikon Z7 camera for a few weeks. No matter if you are considering buying your own Z7 right away or not, Jon's premium article is a good read.

Member Guy Eristoff (geristoff) has written about how he applied an analytical approach, an "in-home comparative test" to figure out which of his existing lenses would best suit street photography. Read about his test.

More good portfolios have been added by our Platinum and Gold members. Have a look at the portfolio overview.

I am wishing you an excellent weekend,
Bo (bgs)
