Welcome to… N-Photo isn’t like other photography magazines – it’s designed solely for Nikon D-SLR users. Every month we’ll bring you advice on how to get great pictures, and tell you the best kit to use. We’ll guide you through the latest camera settings, techniques and editing processes, and back up our words with the exclusive live videos on our private YouTube channel. N-Photo is a magazine for the 21st century, and will be available in digital and print form. You can keep in touch via Facebook (http://on.fb.me/uWJDOK), Twitter (http://bit.ly/tr9OCw) and our very own website (http://bit.ly/poKJId). Over the following pages we’ll give you a taste of some of the exciting content we have lined up for Nikon nuts when we launch on 24 November. Enjoy it!

Why N-Photo

100% Nikon, 100% independent

■ N-Photo is just for Nikon users, which means every guide refers to Nikon menus and commands, and we only review Nikon-compatible gear. Plus, we’re totally independent, so can say what we think.

Nikon-only tests Chris George, Editor

PS Don’t forget our special introductory offers on page 14 – you can subscribe to N-Photo from as little as £5!

■ The problem with general photography magazines is that their reviews are written for all types of camera, meaning you find Canon and Sony gear rubbing shoulders with Nikon kit. N-Photo solves this issue.
