Thanks to reader Mick Klass, who submitted his results for the new Nikon 20mm f/1.8 S Nikkor Z lens at 720mm infrared. His results showed excellent performance through f/8, with a mild hotspot appearing at f/11 and above. As such, I give the 20mm f/1.8 S Nikkor a “good” rating on my Nikon Z infrared testing chart.

Creating Panoramic Images
This week, we are taking a look at panoramic images. Panoramas are generally images that have a uniquely wide aspect ratio. We like panoramas for their creative impact. You can capture panoramic images in a variety of ways, including cropping in-camera or in post, and by “stitching” together several images captured in sequence.
Night Sky Photography
With comet Neowise still in the night sky, we decided to take a look at the techniques and equipment we use for night sky photography. Find out what kind of lenses work best, and how to set up your camera for stunning night sky photos of stars and the Milky Way.

I recently converted a Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera to capture infrared images. Along with my Image Doctors co-host Rick Walker, I tested most of the new Nikon Z-mount lenses to see how well they performed for infrared photography, including sharpness and the appearance of hot-spots. We also tested a slate of F-mount lenses using the Nikon FTZ adapter to see how well they performed on the Nikon Z6 in infrared.
