The new Nikon instant rebates (US)

Nikon-reabtes-savings

Those are the latest Nikon instant rebates for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The body only D7000 and D5100 cameras (both in stock) also qualify for the instant savings. Those rebates will expire on March 31, 2012. After the D4 and D800 announcements, Nikon stopped the rebate program for the D3s/D700 models and I don’t think they are coming back.

The decryption itself doesn’t mean much at that point, but it may offer some neat “adjustments” in the future.

I actually never expected them to released another firmware update for the D7000 more than a year after it was announced. Fixes in the Nikon D5100 v1.01 firmware update (download link): An error recognizing some memory cards has been addressed. When Selective […]

Five Nikon products receive the “iF design award 2012”

Nikon-iF-design-award-2012

Four Nikon cameras (S100, P300, AW100 and D5100) and one microscope received the iF design award this year. I am surprised that the Nikon 1 did not receive an award (maybe it announced too late? no pun intended).
