Nikon World of Close-up Photography

A new generation of great close-up photc

With all the recent advances in 35mrn Single Lens Reflex technology, it's now possible to take better close-up pictures than you ever imagined. What once was "difficult" is now automatic ...what was thought "impossible" now takes just a few minutes! Nikon is at the forefront of a succession of important technological advancesin 35mm SLR autofocus cameras, lenses, speedlights and accessorieswhich puts great photography within everyone's reach. By using advanced computer techniques, Nikon equipment takes care of the complex and tedious calculations so you can concentrate on creative ideas.


graphyNikon leads the way A world leader in ultra-high technology, Nikon designs and manufactures equipment which produces some of the world's most important photo, optical and electronic instruments. It is the company's long experience in the development of ultra-high technology products which gives Nikon that important edge. And it is Nikon:s leadership in developing the world's most professional 35mm cameras, such as the famous Nikon F series, and Nikon's close working relationship with professional photographers all over the world, which enables Nikon to understand so well just how great photographs are made. This combination of high-performance equipment plus experience in photography makes a difference you can appreciate when you choose Nikon.

Depth of Field This refers to the area of acceptable sharpness, both in front of and behind the focused subject. In close-up work, depth of field is extremely shallow, and it changes in relation to the RR and the lens aperture used. The higher the RR and the wider the aperture is open, the shallower the depth of field. Lower RRs and smaller apertures increase depth of field. The depth-of-field preview system of many Nikon SLRs lets you see this effect. Reversing the Lens In general photography, the subject is usually far from the lens while the film is relatively close. As we get closer to the subject, the ratio of distance to subject vs, distance from film to lens changes, affecting performance. When shooting with a lens not specifically designed for close-up work at higher magnification, you can improve lens performance by using a reversing ring to reverse-mount the lens. Nikon offers the BR series of rings, as well as other accessories to use when the lens is reversed. Free Working Distance This refers to the distance from the front of the lens to the subject. As you focus closer this distance becomes progressively shorte;, and can hamper lighting the subject. Very close focusing can make live subjects nervous and uncooperative; using longer focal length lenses can be the solution. Nikon offers a wide selection of lenses and accessories that allow you to control the distance to the subject. Camera Shake When making close-ups, even slight vibrations can reduce image sharpness. For most close-up work, you'll want to use a tripod or some other device to brace your camera system. We also recommend using a Nikon cable release or electronic release wire for the sharpest results.
