I reader emailed me this picture: http://www.inciteimages.com/content/large_MW-in-Snow-3.jpg
it is from this site http://www.inciteimages.com/
My first response was that this camera is the Nikon D1 or D2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_D1X#D1H_and_D1
Then the reader came back to me saying that the D1, D2 and D3 only have two buttons above the shutter release. This camera has three.
Here is a picture of the D1: http://www.intuit.ru/department/publish/digitalcameras/11/11-4.jpg - you can clearly see two buttons above the shutter release.
and Nikon D2: http://www.jea.org/curriculum/photography/nikon.jpg
To spice things up, do you remember this: http://nikonrumors.com/2008/06/14/what-is-that.aspx
