What I see through a NIKKOR lens is never an issue; it’s whatever I choose. Cny usd exchange rate But what I see on a NIKKOR lens can be another matter, and that’s what brought me not long ago to the office of Nikon senior technical manager Lindsay Silverman. Binary cheat sheet As a writer and editor in the photo industry, I’m well aware of Lindsay’s expertise.

“That, too,” I said, “but in this case, it’s the VR II designation.

Usd to aed exchange rate history I see the Roman numeral II after VR in the written description of this lens, and after the G on the lens barrel, and I take it to mean that this lens offers the second generation of VR technology.”

“Common misconception,” Lindsay said. Binary tree “There is a second generation of VR image stabilization technology that allows hand-holding the camera at up to four stops slower, but that designation appears in lens instruction booklets, on spec sheets and with lens information at NikonUSA. Euro to aud converter The Roman numeral you see in the printed name and on the lens barrel means the second generation of that particular lens.”

“Right above the focusing ring and next to the Nikon name is the distance indicator window, which tells you in feet and meters where the lens is focused at any given point. Stock market futures live To the right of the distance indicator window is the letter N, meaning the lens has Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat, an incredibly effective anti-reflective coating.

“Here there are the letters DX next to the Nikon name, which means this lens is optimized for cameras with a DX-format sensor—the D300S or D7000, for instance. Usd vnd If you don’t see DX, then the lens is optimized for FX-format cameras, like the D3X, D3S or D700.

“ED means extra-low dispersion glass—it’s an optical glass Nikon developed for correction of chromatic aberrations. Python tutorial youtube If the lens features both Nano and ED, the ED designation moves down to a part of the descriptor text—that’s the line below the Nikon name and the indicator window.”

“AF-S is for the silent wave motor used in NIKKOR lenses for fast, accurate and, as you’d expect, super quiet AF operation. Love quotes for wife Next, the word NIKKOR—no explanation necessary. Vnd to usd Then comes the focal length of the lens. Trading places stock market scene explained Here it’s the range of this particular zoom—28-300mm. Aud usd yahoo Then comes the maximum f/stop—the largest opening of the diaphragm of the lens. Exchange rate us to indian rupee On this lens there are two numbers—3.5 and 5.6, which means it’s a variable aperture lens: the f/stop varies as you zoom the lens. Yahoo futures quotes The f/stops are always indicated as fractions on the lens, by the way—that’s why you always see them start with a 1, like 1:3.5-5.6.

“Finally, we end with the letter G, which indicates that the lens has an electronic diaphragm control, meaning that the f/stop is set from the camera. Usd law school On older NIKKORS you may see the letter D, and that means distance information is factored into the metering process. Usd chf These days all NIKKORS have distance encoders, so you won’t see D on new NIKKOR lenses—only G.

“You’ll see a 1 and a colon and then another number. Size of futures market At life-size reproduction of your subject, you’ll see 1:1, and as you turn the focusing ring, the ratio will change. Conversion of euro to usd You’ll see 1:2, which means half life-size; 1:4 and 1:6 and so on. Usd to chf And underneath the ratio there’s the distance scale that shows you how close you are in feet and meters to the subject at that reproduction ratio.”

“On the side of some lenses is a switch that offers an MA or M setting. Idr to usd conversion It means the lens allows switching from autofocus to manual with virtually no time lag; you can switch without making any settings on the camera. Exchange rate pound to dollar today MA means you just grab the focusing ring to switch. Exchange rate danish krone to us dollar Certain new lenses—the bigger telephotos—have the labeling as AM; it’s the same control, but there’s more torque required on the focusing ring so you don’t inadvertently change over as you’re holding your hand near the ring.

“Every VR lens has a switch to turn VR on and off. Usd cad exchange rate forecast Some VR lenses have a secondary switch for setting Active mode. Stock market futures 2015 Normal mode means the VR interprets both slow and broad camera movements; it factors in a normal amount of camera shake for hand-held work. Exchange rate vnd to usd When you turn on Active mode, it factors in a more pronounced camera shake—say you’re sitting on an idling bus in traffic and want to take a picture.

“Finally, both the 18-200mm and the 28-300mm VR II zoom lenses have a switch on the side that locks the lens at the wide angle position to prevent zoom creep when you’ve got the camera strap slung over your shoulder.”
