N Photo 100% Nikon 100% INDEPENDENT
This issue, we’re giving over a generous proportion of the magazine to one of our favourite subjects: namely, Nikon kit. Whether you’re looking to buy your first ever D-SLR, or after some expert guidance on upgrading your current camera or lenses, we’re here to help. Our Big Test (p122) of every camera in Nikon’s current entry-level line-up will help you buy with confidence; and if you already own a Nikon and are in the market for a new body or lens, Matthew Richards’ superb feature (p28) reveals THE perfect upgrades for a variety of bodies and lenses, from trusted stalwarts to hidden gems.
And once you’re armed with your new Nikon, you won’t want to miss our Apprentice feature with world-renowned landscape photographer Charlie Waite. I don’t think I’ve met another landscape pro who takes as much care over the tiniest details of light, shade and composition as Charlie. Find out why it matters on page eight.
And speaking of details, you won’t find many pros who’d be prepared to sit in a watering hole deep in the African bush for three months to photograph a lion. Aweinspiring wildlife pro Greg du Toit reveals all on page 106.
All that plus capturing the fun of a festive fair; setting up as a wedding pro; and unique bodyscapes that take light, shade and composition to a whole new level. Enjoy!
