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! You add a remote trigger and you have something you can impress your clients with.  Check the whole report at

    So happy to see Nikon spending time and resources on this worthless crap. How about:

    – More lenses
    – Updated bodies
    – Reasonable prices
    – Fire Ashton Kutcher; save the money you blow on him and pass it onto glass prices

      Cute, but Ashton Kutcher brought Nikon Coolpix sales highest ever, and profit from Coolpix cameras are 10 times higher than DSLR-s, so go figure…
      More probable is that Nikon may drop DSLR-s…

      stop whining and use what nikon already have to offer.

      Try a little perspective, Do you think Nikon has only one R&D team and can’t work on multiple products at once?

      And as annoying as Ashton Kutcher is, celebrity endorsement is a marketing method that works. Internet geeks don’t respond to TV marketing. Luckily, we’re a minority.

      As for “reasonable prices”, well, they’ve been in business for a long time. I’ll trust them to set their prices appropriately. I wouldn’t want them to price their products so low that they don’t have enough profit for future R&D.

    It’s clear to me why this is only for the Japanese market!

    Please, please, please update the 80-400mm and/or the 300mm f/4 before I die of old age. (Asking for a 400mm f/4 as Canon offers is too much, I know.)

    it amazes me how technology gets better and better every minute of our lives, new and improved technology make things even easier, faster, more fun…

    … EXCEPT it makes us pretty lazy.

      Been there, done that, it seems like things are just looping with addons and upgrades, 10years ago I also shot digital which could be processed by my pc….

    Impress your customers? The news agencies won’t be impressed much by me sneaking around like a cyborg. I’d better be waiting for the UP400x with head-mount camera connector to wear your DSLR on top of your head. And no, it’s NOT a rumor, just a joke. (I know you’re a little sensitive with that.) 😉
