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.

Nikon firmware decrypted

Nikon-D5100-board

Nikon firmware has been decrypted by Simeon Pilgrim (with the help of  Vitaliy Kiselev – the person who hacked the Panasonic GH2 firmware).
