Tension build up

After receiving few more tips, I can now clarify the initial Nikon press conference date confusion – the April 16th date will be only for China (I guess 4.14 will not be well accepted in Chinese culture). For the rest of the world the date remains April 14th. In the meantime Nikon UK is out of D300 and D80 […]

Nikon D90 with Nikon Media Port UP300x combo – the future of photography?

Few months ago Nikon announced a rather weird product: the Nikon Media Port UP300x. At the Photo Imaging Expo 2009 in Japan, Nikon had the Media Port UP300x on display connected to a Nikon D90 – the photographer could basically see the viewfinder through the eyepiece. Pretty cool!
