Find out why Nikon is still No 1 in wedding photography cameras


Just like wedding trends wedding photographers need to try and change along with changing cameras and undoubtedly Nikon is and always has been the perfect camera for wedding photography. A Nikon camera is a must have for having an experienced dynamic range. Most photographer try and under-expose certain parts to try and  save  detail than over exposing and losing details in the highlights. But a Nikon camera allowed photographers  to keep SOOO much information in those shadows and highlights and it’s amazing. Here we have few pointers on why you should make sure the photographer for your wedding owns a Nikon camera. 

Zoom lenses for long and short angles 

When photographing weddings, it is important to have a  wide-angle shot capturing everyone and every moment. And photographers achieve that with the Nikon 20mm f/1.8G which will easily help capture your subjects in tighter or wider outdoor environments (such as when photographing indoors, or when photographing large groups). Although there are plenty of great wide-angle lens options out there, most photographers prefer the Nikon 20mm f/1.8G to be their ideal choice for all those beautiful photograohs. The best part of this camera is that it makes it easier for the photographer to move anywhere with its small, lightweight size when compared to other pro-grade prime and zoom lenses.this helps capture single subjects such as the ride and the groom in focus at a big wedding setting. 

Vibration reduction for precise photos 

Another great choice is the AF-S NIKON 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens, which provides Vibration Reduction with up to 4 stops of compensation, which helps capture any moving image.

Vibration Reduction (VR) is an image stabilization technology that minimizes blur caused by camera shake. With the dancing and more dancing at weddings it’s important that every photographer owns one. Nikon VR lenses use two angular velocity sensors, one that detects vertical movement (pitch), the other, horizontal movement (yaw). Using a VR Nikon lens can result in sharp images in low light, under windy conditions or when using a physically large NIKKOR lens, at up to four stops slower with a VR lens than a non-VR lens.

Cramped indoor shoots 

If the bride and groom will be having an indoor reception with close family or friends or if there is going to be a wedding dance the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens, which is optimal for working in cramped locations and crowded dance floors is ideal and preferred . Its  design, optical qualities, and wide-angle versatility make it almost a must-have for wedding work. The Nikon lens holds the ability to shoot continuously in full resolution at 14 FPS, has a buffer 3.5 times larger than the previous cameras , and is equipped with dual EXPEED 6 processors. The camera also has the ability to autofocus on face and eyes with Face-Detection and Eye-Detection, and these come in handy when it comes to shooting videos or photographs in cramped settings.

For precise portraits and features 

What’s more important that that perfect mehendhu hand shot or the close up of the father and daughter emotional moment after the wedding. This is where Tilt-Shift Lenses come in and no one does it better than Nikon. A nikon camera has manual focus lenses that provide exacting control over perspective and focus placement. They are specialty items but, in wedding photography, they can be very useful for close-ups of rings for selective-focus portraiture, and even to prevent distortion in group shots during any of the festivities and it is also very useful in architecture  photoshoch showcase the details of the mandap or the table settings. Nikon makes perfect  lenses and they are available from wide-angle to medium telephoto focal lengths.  PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED Tilt-Shift lenses are few such amazing additions

Size and quality

“Rendering a 45.7MP image, the Nikon Z 7II gives a stellar performance in the photo resolution department! The sheer size of the image it produces allows me to make huge prints, album covers, and sometimes, even lets me fearlessly crop images without thinking twice about any quality loss due to size! Keeping this in mind, the Z 7II is now my go-to camera to capture dramatic pre-wedding photoshoots and couple portraits.
