DSLR cameras, the big bulky Nikon and Canon cameras you see photographers and your cousin Mimi rocking at weddings, aren't going to go away any time soon, but mirrorless cameras, like the excellent Sony A9, have gotten good enough to make the Nikons and Canons of the world scared. So Nikon's latest full frame professional camera, the D850, borrows some pro experiences from it's mirrorless rivals: Including a tilting display, focus stacking, and mirror-free shooting.

Few have the disposable income to casually drop $9000 on a camera like Nikon's D5. NASA, of course, has a couple of spare pennies to toss around on purchases such as this. And when NASA buys cameras, it buys cameras. 53 to be exact. Yes, the US space organisation has just unloaded close to half-a-million bucks on Nikon's DSLRs.

Nikon is, ostensibly, a remarkable company. Sure, it had to lay off quite a few people last year, and back in February, it cancelled a hotly anticipated line of cameras. But Nikon's a tech-based company that's managed to innovate and survive a hundred years. Nikon started as an optics company and has endured as one, even as photography has evolved considerably. Few companies can claim the same! What better way to celebrate 100 years of (mostly) success than with the release of... a Swarovski crystal version of one of its most iconic products?

Hiya Gizmodo! My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography -- it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in? Cheers, Mum

Aimed squarely at "aspiring" and smartphone photographers, Nikon's D3400 is the first entry-level DSLR enabled with SnapBridge -- which automatically syncs images to the your tablet or smartphone as they are captured. With both devices in constant connection, you'll no longer need to manually pair the devices each time to select and transfer images, enabling immediate and on-the-go sharing on social media.

There are fancy cameras, and then there are flagship professional DSLRs, big super powerful overkill machines designed for ultra-fast performance. Nikon teased its latest monster, the D5, in the fall. Today, it's been formally introduced.

Capturing a stunning photograph on your camera is always a rewarding experience. If you haven't tried out time lapse photography, though, you really should -- it's a completely different skill set, and it'll broaden your knowledge of your digital SLR or mirrorless camera. The results you can get out of a simple setup with a little bit of extra time and effort are amazing -- and are great to share with friends.

There's a sweet spot when you're buying a camera, where you get amazing image quality and an excellent feature-set without having to splash out maximum cash on a top of the line, chunky pro-grade digital SLR, lenses and accessories. Nikon's D7200 is just about as refined as a digital SLR for non-professionals can get.
