A dedicated website for astrophotography with helpful information on equipment and techniques for the engaging genre
TOKYO – A website dedicated for those who are familiar with astrophotography, "Step into the world of astrophotography with a Nikon camera" has been announced by Nikon Singapore Pte Ltd today. The new website introduces the Nikon digital cameras, optimized by astrophotography subject, and NIKKOR lenses, while also explaining the peripheral equipment needed and techniques used for astrophotography.
"Step into the world of astrophotography with a Nikon camera" is created for both the photo hobbyists interested in shooting astronomical bodies, as well as for those new to astrophotography. In addition to introducing astrophotography beginners to recommended Nikon cameras and NIKKOR lenses by astronomical body, the guide also delves into the peripheral equipment needed for astrophotography, including tripods, optical telescopes, and equatorial telescopes.
Visitors to the website will find guides to optimal shooting techniques, such as fixed-mount photography and tracked-mount photography, for the intended subject or desired form of expression, as well as shooting techniques and required accessories for each category of Nikon range of cameras. Additional explanations are also made available via sample images of a variety of astronomical bodies.
Prior to the launch of the website, Nikon released the D810A in May this year, its first camera designed exclusively for astrophotography. The innovative DSLR was also introduced with the "D810A Shooting Guide", sharing photographic techniques and processing methods best applied to images of astronomical bodies captured with the D810A.
Nikon looks forward to continue to convey the appeal and excitement of astrophotography in various ways in the future.
