Throwback Thursday: The Nikon D700

Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D700Back in 2007 (yes, that really was 10 years ago), the D3 made quite a splash in the digital camera world. It was Nikon's first ever full-frame DSLR, and while it couldn't compete with Canon's EOS-1Ds Mark III in terms of resolution, it did come with some of the best low-light performance around.

Throwback Thursday: The Canon Powershot G3

Throwback Thursday: The Canon PowerShot G3

It's hard to believe that the Canon G-series is almost 17 years old, and while technology has certainly marched forward, 'G cameras' have consistently been a favorite of enthusiasts and even pros. (OK, there was that whole kerfuffle when the G7 dropped Raw support, but Canon saw the error of its ways and corrected course with the G9.)

However, through all the years, there's one model in particular that always stands out in my memory: the PowerShot G3. In part, this is surely due to the fact that it's one of the cameras that helped me make the transition to digital, but I don't think I'm alone in this. The G3 was released right around the time that a lot of photographers were making the same transition, and the camera offered a fast lens and all the manual controls you could want. Its 'rangefinder' look undoubtedly appealed to aesthetic tastes as well.

Throwback Thursday: The Dslr-a900, Sony's First Full-frame Camera

Throwback Thursday: The DSLR-A900, Sony's first full-frame camera

Prior to September 2008, the only options for owners of Konica Minolta Alpha-mount lenses were APS-C DSLRs like Sony's DSLR-A700 (Sony acquired KM's camera business in 2006).

Then came the DSLR-A900, Sony's first full-frame DSLR, which had an expansive feature set for the relatively low price of $3000. The A900, whose large magnesium alloy body could practically drive nails, had a 24.6MP full-frame CMOS sensor paired with two Bionz processors. That combination gave users a fully expanded ISO range of 100-6400 and burst shooting that topped out at 5 fps.

Return Thursday: Nikon D70

Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70

In 2004 I expected to settle on a vague overpowering decision from various related picture takers: Canon EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) or Nikon D70 - which one was to wind up observably my initially progressed SLR? The Canon, which had been pushed in August 2003 was the key honest to goodness buyer level DSLR and had been on my rundown of things to get for two or three months when, in January 2004, Nikon shook ball and impelled a prompt contender to the EOS 300D: the D70, the organization's first sub-$1000 progressed SLR.

The D70 conferred a significant add up to its 2-year-more settled kinfolk D100, including a six megapixel CCD sensor and the MultiCAM 900 self-modify system. It didn't have the other option to join a hand hold and went with less custom limits and a plastic body however offered better  execution and moreover upgraded picture sharpness and detail when appeared differently in relation to its all the more exorbitant cousin.
