TIPA comments for the Nikon D780:

“Nikon has created an instant classic with the D780. The camera shares the legendary D750’s DNA plus incorporates many of the latest technologies found in Nikon’s Z mirrorless camera series. In terms of speed, image processing, video capability and autofocus performance, the results check every box on the photographer’s wish list, including Dual UHS-II card slots and two readout modes, one dedicated to an expanded dynamic range and the other to higher gain for improved lowlight performance.”

TIPA comments for the Nikon Z 50:

“The Nikon Z 50 mirrorless, Z-mount camera is ideal for family, travel and creative photography/videography. Ease of use and compact size are coupled with extensive creative controls that include easy switchover between still and video, easy connectivity, and numerous Creative Picture Control effects. Its large tilting LCD offers a bright view even in challenging light, with sensible and accessible dials and menu structures, an impressive 11 fps rate (continuous AF) and wide ISO range.”

TIPA comments for the AF-S NIKKOR 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR:

“The AF-S NIKKOR 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens is an ideal single lens solution for sports, wildlife and select portrait photography. Built with an eye on outdoor work, whether it’s in a sports stadium or in the wilds, the lens features rugged weather-sealed construction and 4-stop VR, including a dedicated “Sports VR” mode for rapidly moving subjects. Equally impressive is the close-focusing distance of 6.5 feet (two meters) and customization controls that provide many useful tools for capturing the action.”

TIPA comments for the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct:

“Superior low light photography is one hallmark of the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens. This fascinating lens is designed to eliminate flare when shooting point light sources, even at maximum aperture, and delivers incredible results in night scenes, landscape and nature work at dawn or dusk, astrophotography, and even backlit portraits with specular highlights behind the subject. Remarkably, this manual focus lens shows its true brilliance when shot wide open, with clarity and a hyper-real rendition throughout the frame.”
