Most of us choose to shoot Nikon D-SLRs be­cause of their build qual­ity. Even Nikon’s en­try-level mod­els feel re­as­sur­ingly, sat­is­fy­ingly solid. And of course Nikon’s pro mod­els feel like they’d sur­vive a me­teor strike. But build qual­ity aside, what is it about Nikons that in­spires such evan­gel­i­cal al­le­giance among the world’s top pros? What fea­tures mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween nail­ing the front page of the world’s pa­pers, and nail­ing an­other ‘nearly’? Well, for this is­sue’s fea­ture we de­cided to find out – all is re­vealed on page 16.

One per­son who re­lies on Nikon’s build qual­ity more than most is Ice­landic land­scape pro Ei­nar Gud­mann, who shared the stun­ning land­scapes of his home­land with this is­sue’s Ap­pren­tice – you can find out how they got on, and how well their cam­eras coped, on page 52.

And if that in­spires you to head out­doors with your own Nikon af­ter a long, very wet win­ter, do your­self a favour and down­load our free gift, Out­door Land­scape &Na­ture Pho­tog­ra­phy( see above right ). Crammed with tips, tech­niques and ideas, it’s sure to keep you in­spired and en­ter­tained un­til next win­ter!
