Nikon Japan site will be down tomorrow

Nikon Japan site will be down tomorrow, September 3rd from 14:00 to 16:00. Don't know why. Could be a regular maintenance. The last time all Nikon sites world wide were down was right before they announced the Nikon D90 (they had to bring the sites down in order to update the product line).
Just to remind our readers that tomorrow is September 3rd - see this post.

    I red that.
    That announcement is about two web services.
    Nikon web camera school and fixing service.

    “is there a photographer working on a pc?”
    I hate Apple. Proprietary crap drives me crazy. I don’t want to start a PC/Apple battle here as I don’t care what people use but, even though I assume your comment was meant as a joke, many more folks than not work on a pc – even for creative apps.

    If by “PC” you mean “Windows,” that’s every bit as proprietary.

    As for market share, remember that Apple has 66% of the above-$1000 personal computer market. SIXTY-SIX percent. They are a HUGE player in the high-end.

    Tell that to my dead Ipod. Replaced it with a non-Apple product and I can now share whatever I want with whomever I want without having to use a hack.

    This is my other problem with Macs. I built a $600 PC from a barebones kit that can mop the floor with a multi thousand dollar Mac in terms of performance. Lastly, there are those Mac commercials – yuck.
    Anyway, whatever floats your boat. I like PC’s others like Mac – nobody can tell our photos apart so who cares?

    Good for you. Nonetheless, Windows is 100% proprietary. It’s Microsoft’s PROPERTY, and you are NOT free to do with it whatever you like.

    If you want to debate which of these two proprietary platforms is more embracing of open file formats, the nod would go to Apple. By a country mile. But Linux and FreeBSD are of course far better in that respect.

    You’re measuring “performance” in terms of clock rates, megaflops, drive capacity, triangles/sec, etc. This isn’t what computers are for, any more than cameras are about megapixels.

    Apple customers pay extra for the Apple user experience, which is the only aspect of “performance” that actually matters.

    You could say the same thing about Nikon versus Canon. You could also use the same argument in defense of supporting the Mac only.

    The reason I care is because I like Nikon’s (hardware) products but I don’t want to be locked-in to using Microsoft’s miserable, proprietary OS on the back-end, and for no photographic reason whatsoever.

    Imagine if Nikon’s film SLRs only worked with one brand of film, because the two cut a deal? That would suck. Now imagine if the government got involved and enforced that vendor lock-in (through the USPTO, the DMCA, etc.). That would totally suck.

    Let’s don’t forget that those are just speculations (well the P600 RAW format is a fact – hopefully the first and last of its kind).

    Well, we are arguing subjective points. I think the Mac OS sucks WAY more than Windows – go figure. And I was never defending Nikon’s [rumored] decision to deny Mac users (not that I think they ever will)…
    Enough is enough, let’s agree to disagree!
    Peace.

  • BeCivil

    Could we please be civil and stop bickering about computers and get back to cameras? Thanks

  • Klaus

    You’ve inadvertently nailed the problem on the head.

    If Nikon enters into an exclusive deal with Microsoft, then discussing (Nikon) cameras IS discussing computers, like it or not.

    Imagine if the D4 requires some DCMA-protected codec that’s only available for Windows. Then every criticism of Windows is also a criticism of the D4, because Nikon hitched their wagon to Microsoft. The two become inseparable.

    That’s what’s wrong with proprietary interfaces, and why if we ever want to get back to discussing cameras, this kind of nonsense needs to be opposed.

    I would conclude that nothing happened.

    yep – busted
