So you think you know how to use your digital camera? Like many of us, you may have a DSLR or compact system camera but tend to use only a handful of your its features. Use these camera tips to learn how to get more from your Nikon D40 so you can start using your DSLR to its full potential.

Recently our friends at N-Photo sat down for one of their usual afternoon summits. Only this time, rather than musing on the next issue of the magazine, the team produced a series of ground-breaking ideas for future Nikon DSLRs!
Their only criteria in plotting Nikon’s future was that their idea has to be technically possible, genuinely useful or jaw-droppingly clever.
Although a number of Nikon DSLRs have video recording capabilities, we understand that many of you would rather shoot still images rather than moving pictures. However, as we’ve often stumbled across some absolutely beautiful short films shot using Nikon DSLRs, we decided to put together a post featuring five of the best Nikon films.
Our friends at N-Photo, the Nikon magazine, have compiled a brilliant top ten list of Nikon movie roles! Find out what Nikon SLRs have been present at some of the greatest moments in movie history.
If you are a Nikon loyalist and shoot in RAW, you can make tweaks to your Nikon raw files and experiment with different looks using Nikon’s Capture NX2 software. Capture NX 2 is also designed to read all the extra information in a NEF file, so you can make edits and try out various White Balance settings. It’s as though you’re still on location with your DSLR in hand!
In addition to these handy features, when you open a RAW file in Capture NX 2, you gain access to an extra Camera Settings panel that enables you to get more from your shots. Let’s see how it works…
Yesterday we shared video comparison of two leading Nikon DSLRs, the Nikon D3200 vs D3100, and discussed some of the key differences between these two entry-level DSLRs in the Nikon range. Given the Nikon D3200′s impressive specs we thought we would take this idea step further – quite literally – and compare the D3200 to another popular camera a little bit higher in the manufacturer’s line-up with a Nikon D3200 vs D5100 comparison.
The easy option for digital sharpening is to ramp up the in-camera sharpening setting. However, some shots need more sharpening than others, and if you apply too much then image quality can fall. Digital sharpening isn’t applied to RAW files, but if you shoot JPEGs, any in-camera sharpening is permanent.
Announced in April, the Nikon D3200 became the latest addition to Nikon’s DSLR range after refreshing the top end of its line-up at the start of the year with the Nikon D800 and Nikon D4. Bolstering the manufacturer’s beginner range, the Nikon D3200 was launched not to replace the ever-popular Nikon D3100; rather, it will sit along side the D3100 as a more premium option. Which begs the question… when you make a comparison of the Nikon D3200 vs D3100, which is the better camera for your money?
You may be a Canon loyalist, or you may shoot strictly with Nikon DSLRs. But be honest: you’ve probably wondered what the other has on offer, haven’t you?
We certainly have, so we decided to start with the top dial. In our latest photography cheat sheet, we looked at the shooting modes on offer from two of the most popular DSLRs on the market: the Nikon D3100 and the Canon EOS 550D.
