In our Gear section, we test Nikon’s first Z-mount super-tele zoom, the Z 100-400mm. It’s a cracking but pricey lens, so in our Big Test we compare eight great-value mirrorless optics, all under £500/$500. We also round up five digital photo frames for showcasing your shots.
We explain depth of field in-depth in Nikon Know-How. And in our Nikon Skills section we show you how to edit images in-camera, shoot oil-and-water abstracts, use the ‘holy trinity’ lenses for landscapes, and create larger-than-life forced-perspective toy shots.
And as a special bonus, we're giving away a free Nikon Beginner's Handbook ebook, with everything you need to get to grips with your Nikon camera!
