Welcome to issue 54 of…
I love the noises that Nikon SLRs make: the satisfying clunk-click of attaching a lens; the reassuring beep of the autofocus system; the resounding clack of the mirror opening and closing – they’re all noises that never get old. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that one of the reasons that Nikon SLRs are the only choice for many of us is that no other camera has a ‘clack’ quite like a Nikon SLR. It has resonated through the history of SLR photography, and continues to excite the creative soul in all of us.
If you’ve just bought or been given a Nikon SLR, or you’re still hoping Santa will oblige, you’ve got all that to look forward to – just be sure to take James Paterson’s ultimate guided tour before you get started (see page 28). And if you’re an old (sorry, older) hand, you won’t want to miss Joe McNally’s inspirational insights into the things he wishes he’d known when
he was starting out (p96). Finally, if you enjoy any – or all – of these articles, don’t forget to download your free digital edition of The Ultimate Nikon SLR Handbook. It’s our Christmas gift to you, with our compliments – you can find out more on page 65. Happy shooting, and see you in 2016!
