While the name Kodak was associated with film and early photography and Leica was associated with early serious photography, real 35mm photography received its biggest boost from the Nikoncamera line as journalists and other professionals made great use of the line’s fine optics and multiple single lens reflex bodies and now with image world turned digital Nikon still leads the way.
When Nikon announced that it would be upgrading its D3000 line of digital single lens reflex cameras (dSLRs), many photographers waited with baited breath to see if the upgraded D3100 was better than the D3000.
The easy answer is yes, it is better in many ways. For example, while the D3000 offered high resolution, the D3100 offered not only a 3X 18-55mm zoom lens as standard, the lens was part of the Nikkor line. Nikkor lenses have been among the best-rated lenses for the past 30 years in chroma, spherical aberration and internal reflection (chroma is color rendition, spherical
About a year ago I received an intriguing email from Nikon Tokyo asking me if I would have the time to participate in a special project. Little idea did I have that a few months later I would have the honor to be the first photographer to shoot the new Nikon D600 in the field. From the beginning it was clear to me that I wanted to create a powerful video along with the images and asked my brother Salomon Schulz, who specializes in film-making, to be part of the team to create the official Nikon D600 Movie.
Looking at the specs of the D600, we realized this was an extremely versatile camera. That is the reason why we wanted to test the camera shooting landscapes and wildlife, from the deserts of the South West to the mountains of Alaska, and that in winter time.
For us photography is a passion that goes far beyond the technical aspects of a camera. It is about experiencing the natural world.
In “CHASING THE LIGHT” we wanted to get the feeling across what it is like to head out into the wild to document the natural world. We wanted everybody who likes nature photography to see themselves in this film and say: It is about time I am getting out into the field again. I hope this film does this for you!

Controlling the light in a photo can be tricky - first you need a flash to illuminate the subject, but then you get the harsh lighting that a flash unit creates. Soften that flash with a diffuser. This cap diffuser fits onto Nikon SB-600 Speedlight Flash units to create softer shadows and overall lighting. It's a perfect accessory for taking portraits, wedding shots, and anywhere you want softer light effects.
