Go the distance with the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR – the new 4.3x telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography.zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example. with a flexible f/4.5-6.3 maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur.. Featuring a stepping motor for the autofocus drive, you’ll be able to get up close to your subjects, quicker and quieter. To reduce the effects of camera shake, a Vibration Reduction system is built in to stabilise any situation by providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. of 4.0 stops faster. An Extra-low Dispersion glass element is also incorporated to provide outstanding shooting possibilities that advance your creative vision.
FASTER AND STEALTHIER
Shoot fast-moving subjects at different distances with smooth and consistent results. With the all-new stepping motor in the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR, you can achieve fast and precise autofocus (AF) through improved phase-detection and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). -detection AF speeds. At the same time, AF drive sound has been reduced, enabling photographers and videographers to capture subjects in their most natural moments without drawing unnecessary attention.
GO THE DISTANCE
With a practical zoom range of 70-300mm, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR is versatile enough to cover landscapes, portraits and more, while its telephoto capability achieves dramatic close-ups by bringing the subject closer to you. In addition, the Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element within its construction effectively minimises chromatic aberrations such as colour fringes for stunning images.
SHOOT WITH CONFIDENCE
Take steadier shots with the Vibration Reduction (VR) feature on the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR. Compensating for slow, wide panning movements, the VR feature provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*2 so that you can achieve crisp and sharp images even for handheld shots.
An all-new setting system enables you to use the camera menus to change lens settings, freeing you to stay focused on composition and framing. The focus mode (AF/MF) can be selected using the camera’s menu. This eliminates accidental setting change caused by unintentional switch operation to give you a seamless, precise shooting experience.
