Nikon already sees “signs of recovery” in North America, Asia and China in their Q&A of financial results

Nikon published their Q&A for the Q1 financial results. For the Imaging Business, Nikon already sees “signs of recovery” in North America, Asia and China.

The latest B&H shipment of Nikon D810 cameras does not have the thermal issue (white dots)

After it has been out of stock for a while, B&H just received a new shipment of Nikon D810 DSLRs and they confirmed to me that all cameras in their warehouse already have the fix for the thermal issue (white dots) during long exposures. I am curious if those “new” cameras will have a different firmware […]

Nikon will also announce a new SB-500 Speedlight flash

In addition to the D750 DSLR camera, Nikon will also announce a new SB-500 Speedlight flash. The SB-400 has already been listed as discontinued (previously reported here and here) and I think the new SB-500 will be its replacement.

Nikon’s service advisory for thermal issue (white dots) during long exposures with the D810 camera

Nikon USA/Nikon EU/Nikon Japan issued a service advisory for thermal problem (white dots/bright spots) during long exposures with the D810 camera. Back in 2010 the D7000 had a similar issue and I am surprised that Nikon has another QA problem after the D600 spots. At least this time they offered a solution just few weeks after the camera […]

The making of Full Moon Pacific Blanket time-lapse video (San Francisco Bay Area)

Gary Yost (www.garyyost.com) talks about the making of the Full Moon Pacific Blanket time-lapse video in the San Francisco Bay Area: I’ve been a volunteer fire lookout on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais for the Marin County Fire Department for four years and its aerial location has provided many opportunities for me to see […]
