NIKONS LEARN & EXPLORE IPHONE APPLICATION COMES TO EUROPE
Get on-the-spot photography expertise from Nikon.
If youve ever admired the works of professional photographers, but had no time to read phonebook-sized tip books, Nikon Inc.s newest app, Nikon Learn & Explore, may be for you. Its like having a pocket full of useful tips, both for amateurs and those that know what ISO and single servo AF mean.
This iPhone app opens with an impressive array of pretty photos for you to peruse. The next tab on the bottom, Learn, is probably the highlight of Nikons iPhone app. It features articles (augmented with complementing photo samples, audio commentary, and/or video lectures) in three major categories that will hopefully help you improve your photographing skills: Image Editing, Shooting Techniques, and Fundamentals of Photography. Certain articles are clearly tagged as Beginner or Advanced, so you know which ones to steer clear of. If you get confused by any of the terms used, you can jump to the fourth tab at the bottom titled Glossary and look it up. You can favorite (also known as bookmark) any article for future reference, which you can bring up again with the last tab. The third and middle tab, Nikon World, gives you access to the last four quarterly issues of Nikons magazine.
Nikon Learn & Explore would probably be a bit overwhelming, especially to a photography novicetheres just so much information and jargon being used, its very easy to be buried. And in order to actually utilize the majority of the tips, youd probably have to have a better camera than the one that comes with your iPhone. Some articles are annoyingly video-only, so it might be frustrating if your connection is slow. However, this iPhone apps interface is clean and easy to navigate, and is definitely enlightening; photography buffs will love this app, if only for the useful glossary. Nikon also continuously updates the iPhone app with new articles and information, so at the price of free, this useful app is worth a look.http://www.nikon.co.uk
