DPReview Rewind: Nikon D1, the first in-house DSLR

When you use DPReview links to buy products, the site may earn a commission. The Nikon D1 was the first DSLR developed in-house by a camera maker and the first to generate JPEGs internally. Photo: Phil Askey In 1999, you could already buy an F-mount DSLR: Kodak had been selling modified Nikon SLRs since the DCS100 in 1991. But at the turn of the century, its prime offering was still a rather inelegant combination of a Nikon F5 film camera and a bolted-on digital imaging unit called the Kodak Professional DCS-620. The camera Nikon revealed on June 15th 1999 was arguably the first gro ..read more

Nikon launches repair manuals and parts portal for do-it-yourself fixes

Screengrab: Nikon USA Nikon USA has added a "Nikon Parts" section to its website, selling components and tools to allow at-home repairs of its products. So far the site only includes the repair manual and parts for the Nikkor Z 28-400mm F4-8 VR lens, but it seems reasonable to assume the company hasn't got to all this effort for a single product. Two laser rangefinders for golfers are also supported. This is a significant volte-face for the company, which previously stopped selling spare parts to independent service companies, let alone individuals. We've contacted Nikon USA for comme ..read more

This is our first video of this type and we have plans to add more in-person footage for future instances, but please let us know what you think of the concept, and of the GH7, in t ..read more

Image: Insta360 Insta360 has announced the GO 3S, an updated version of its diminutive GO 3 action camera. Like the previous version of the camera, the GO3S nests inside an 'Action Pod' that serves as a housing, remote control, and charger for the camera, along with a 2.2" touchscreen.

When you use DPReview links to buy products, the site may earn a commission. Last week's launch of the Panasonic GH7 was exciting for video shooters, with features like 32-bit Float audio and internal ProRes RAW recording making headlines. However, Panasonic also made a parallel announcement that will turn some heads. The company has partnered with Arri, a leading manufacturer of cinema cameras, to bring Arri's LogC3 profile to the Panasonic GH7 and GH6, which will allow for color matching between those models and Arri's digital cinema cameras. Enabling the feature requires paying a lic ..read more

Photo: Kitamura Camera I always extend my business trips to Japan beyond the bare minimum needed for business, because I can never get enough of the country, its people and its culture. Most recently, I stayed on a couple of weeks past the end ..read more
