» Developing Black and White Film Part 3: The Process | photography on pixelogist.me | Scoop.it

And welcome to the third and final part of this mini-series on developing black and white film! I started this series quite a while back, but due to some technical issues with this site I was unable to get this post on here until now, and although it’s long after the rest of the series, I hope you can catch up with the other two posts here, and here, so we can continue directly from where I left off. In these two parts I covered the equipment you would need, as well as the chemicals necessary, to develop film – specifically black and white film – now let’s get on with the process itself

If you’ve been following this blog you will know that street photography is my single biggest passion. I’m never happier than when I’m out on the streets of whichever city I’m in, armed with any sort of camera – and never more satisfied than when I look through a days work and find a single street shot that feels just right enough to be a keeper

The Coolpix P7100 is one of Nikon’s current high-end compact digital camera, and although it has just been replaced by the new P7700, it remains one of Nikon’s premium compacts in the Coolpix line-up

It also becomes the first M capable of movie shooting - capturing 1080p footage at 25 or 24 frames per second. It includes a 920k dot LCD with smartphone-style Gorilla Glass cover, and accepts the same plug-in EVF as used by the X2. Availability is scheduled for early 2013 with a retail price of $6,950 in the US and £5100 in the UK.

Nikon announces D600 24MP enthusiast full-frame DSLR: Digital Photography Review

Nikon announces D600 24MP enthusiast full-frame DSLR: Digital Photography Review | photography on pixelogist.me | Scoop.it

Photokina 2012: Nikon has announced the D600, the smallest, least expensive full frame DSLR on the market, aimed directly at enthusiast photographers. The D600 is built around a 24MP, 36x24mm, CMOS sensor and crams many of the features of the more expensive D800 into a distinctly D7000-esque body. It features a 100% coverage viewfinder and 39-point autofocus system, nine of which are cross-type points. It can capture 1080p HD video at 30, 25 or 24 frames per second and can stream uncompressed footage out over its HDMI port. There's also an optional Wi-Fi unit allowing the camera to be controlled remotely from an Android or iOS device. The D600 will have a list price of $2,099 body only, or $2,699 with the 24-85mm F3.5-5.6 lens and will be available from September 18th.
