Nikon DL24-85mm - An advanced compact camera
With their new DL range of cameras, Nikon have provided photographers with a high-quality line of compact gear that seems to have been taken directly from the dreams of enthusiasts the world over.
The DL24-85mm in particular is the ideal compact camera to accompany through your day-to-day life thanks to its versatile ‘normal’ zoom range and excellent f1.8-2.8 max aperture rating. AF is very snappy and this paired with a ISO range of 160-12800 results in an all-around shooter that will be up to any task.
The DL24-85mm features a large 1.0 inch sensor with a resolution of 20.8 megapixels, placing it a spot above your average compact camera, sure to be a favourite for travel and general purpose photography. The CMOS sensor is backside-illuminated meaning it is highly sensitive and well-suited to low-light situations. Interior shots and available light shots will be delivered with extremely low noise and high detail.
The New Nikon DL range features a number of compact cameras well suited to different areas of photography and photographers. The DL24-85mm has the optical zoom range of around 3.5X placing it firmly in the standard zoom range, ideal for travel, portraits, general-purpose and everyday photography – It is even great for macro work with a closest focus of just 2cm! This is the type of lens that can do more things than it can’t. Optically the lens is as excellent as you would expect from Nikkor, constructed of precision glass mold aspherical lens elements for the utmost in lens aberration correction. The max aperture rating is consistently large throughout the range, making this camera perfect for all lighting conditions. Another welcome addition is the zoom step-ring around the lens barrel, which makes its simpler and quicker for you to find your desired focal length.
Ever the versatile camera, the DL24-85mm also delivers excellence in the movie making field with 4K UHD resolution. Use the 3 inch tiltable screen to help compose your movies and capture them in high-detail with beautiful colour reproduction.
To keep you up to speed the DL24-85mm has a hybrid autofocus system. With a 105-point phase detection, or a 171-point contrast detection AF to choose from, this camera will never have an issue finding focus, no matter how rapid your subject is moving.
Sharing your results can be one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of photography. Thanks to the built in Wi-Fi and Nikon’s New Snapbridge feature, this can be done with a new level of speed and ease. Snapbridge can automatically download your images to your smart device even when your camera is switched off, due to a constant BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connection.
