Nikon, a part of the Mitsubishi Group of Companies, is a Japanese multinational corporation which manufactures cameras, microscopes, binoculars, measurement instruments, ophthalmic-based lenses, steppers and other lens-oriented products. A stereo microscope is special in that it produces a 3D image of the specimen.
Nikon was responsible for popularizing professional use of the 35mm SLR with the introduction of the Nikon F in 1959 and was, for many years, the default choice for working photographers. 50-plus years later, Nikon, along with arch-rival Canon, still dominates the digital SLR market, thanks to a range of cameras that encompasses the absolute beginner model.
Camera companies have been steadily building out impressive lens arsenals for mirror less cameras to ensure there’s a lens best suited for your shooting needs. If you want the smallest kit possible, consider a Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus or Panasonic. These use slightly smaller sensors, but that means dramatically smaller and more compact lenses. You can easily pack a bag with a Micro Four Thirds camera and three lenses that will be lighter than a DSLR with a single lens.
Key points of a full-frame camera:
- Sensor: Full-frame cameras are well known for producing the best performance in low light, thanks to their large photodiodes (pixels)
- Pop-up flash: Not all full-frame cameras feature a pop-up flash, so for extra illumination you’ll require a hotshoemounted flashgun
- Lenses: Full-frame cameras can only be used with full-frame lenses. Canon EF-S lenses, for example, are not compatible with Canon full frame DSLRs
- Build quality: Expect a full-frame camera to be robustly made with weather seals for maximum protection
