Creative underexposure with Nikon DSLR camera

Creative underexposure with a Nikon DSLR camera is written by Deci Gallen (Website | Facebook | Instagram):

With the release of the D750, much has been made of its ability to recover shadow detail. Given the range of talents that the D750 has it is strange that this has been singled out given that the D800 and D4, released in 2012, outperform it in this regard, and the cheaper D600 (also from 2012) is able to match it at base ISO. And the old guard, the D700, D3 and D3s, weren’t too shabby at recovery either!

With news of incredible shadow recovery typically there comes two responses: the hyperbolic “That’s amazing! I want one NOW!” and the cynical “you wouldn’t need shadow recovery if you exposed right.” There is, of course that third response: ‘I wish the 5D mkIII could do that’ but I won’t get into that here…

New Nikon 24mm f/1.8 lens on the horizon

NIKKOR-LENSES
In addition to a new DX camera, Nikon is rumored to announce a new 24mm f/1.8 lens in 2015 - most likely in the January-February timeframe for the CES or CP+ shows. With a performance close to the f/1.4 versions and for a fraction of the price, the f/1.8 lenses have been a huge success for Nikon and it is not a surprise if they decided to expand their current f/1.8 line (20mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm).

Nikon currently has four 24mm lenses: Nikkor AF-S 24mm f/1.4G EDNikkor AF 24mm f/2.8DNikkor AIS 24mm f/2.8 and Nikkor PC-E 24mm f/3.5D ED.

Sigma is also preparing to announce a new 24mm f/1.4 lens soon (they already have a 24mm f/1.8 lens).
