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!
