  • The Nikon GP-1 is the first GPS unit that was specifically built for use with Nikon DSLR’s. The GP-1 provides “geotagging” information that is stored directly to your images metadata. Using the GP-1 you will always know the exact time and location that your pictures were taken. The GP-1 attains information from global positioning satellites and tags the metadata with latitude, longitude, altitude, and time information. The GP-1 is attached to the camera by siding it into the hot shoe, in the event that you need to use the hot shoe for your Speedlight you can use an accessory strap attachment, which is provided.
  • The SB-900 Speedlight is Nikon’s newest and most advanced Speedlight to date. New features include flash coverage from 10.5mm to 300mm, automatic filter information, a 360º rotating flash head, and adjustable flash patterns the SB-900 is the most versatile Speedlight ever. The newly redesigned user interface makes the SB-900 much easier to use and quicker to set up whether you’re using it as a Master or Remote unit.
  • This is Nikon’s newest lens. The Silent Wave motor allows fast and nearly imperceptible focusing. This new lens is the first “Normal” prime lens Nikon has ever offered that was designed specifically for its DX cameras. The 35mm focal length gives you the approximate field of view that a 52mm lens gives on a full frame digital or film camera. This focal length is perfect almost all types of photography from landscapes to portraits. The fast f/1.8 aperture allows for shallow depth of field for artistic shots and also allows you to get great low-light shots without the need to crank up the ISO setting. The 35mm f/1.8G also has 7 rounded aperture blades for a more natural and pleasing bokeh.
