Nikon related new/links

This week the Nikon links section will be published earlier. I will be on the road and will have limited Internet access in the next few days:

  • Nikon Solution Expo 2009 canceled.
  • Nikon and Fujitsu will establish a joint company named "Nikon Imaging Systems". The company will be responsible for the firmware development in Nikon digital cameras (source).
  • Nikon launches D5000 cashback scheme in the UK.

    D5000 cashback already? Weird…
    It’s a shame about canceling the Solutions Expo. I was there last year in London, and I got to play around with a lot of incredible setups, that I wouldn’t be able otherwise:
    – My D40 with a 200mm f/2 VR. That lens is sharp, big and heavy! And the bokeh, oh god, the “creaminess”.. My D40 simply disappeared behind it… I laughed when another guy approached me and was like: “What the heck is that??!??”. Hehehe.
    – A D3x with 85mm PC-E, playing around with focus plane tilt.
    – A D700 with a 70-200 VR; That’s a heavy, solid combo.
    – A D3 with a 500mm VR. I felt like a terrorist with a RPG launcher. 😛
    – Lots of photographer’s talks
    – A great Nikon tech seminar, talking about the “letter technologies” (N,G,VR,etc) where I got to make a Nikon tech guy scratch his head when I asked him about Focal Length-dependent minimum shutter speed in Auto-ISO. 😀 The guy was like: “Eeewww… Yeah, that would be cool! I’ll report that back!” Lol….

    Safe trip admin and hopefully the biggest Nikon news/rumor won’t break while your deep in the woods. ;^)

    • Thanks! I will literally be in the woods… if I have cell phone coverage, I will be able to update the blog.

    I don’t understand how the funding for the new company can only be 95 million yen and have 100 employees. Isn’t 95 million yen just 1 million dollars?

    Enjoy your trip, recharge and come back fresh with new rumored announcements

    • I will still be online – it all depends on the AT&T coverage of Yosemite.

      • Actually try not to be online. It’ll do you good.

        I read a quote about someone who reads books when travelling. “That’s like going a thousand miles without moving an inch.”

        Explore new territories to recharge self, even if it’s not depleting anytime soon. A quick recharge never hurts.

    Yosemite! Remember admin only you can prevent forest fires!

    >> “Nikon and Fujitsu will establish a joint company named “Nikon Imaging Systems”. The company will be responsible for the firmware development in Nikon digital cameras”

    [Groan….] Some of the worst crap to ever come out of Japan has been from Fujitsu. Perhaps I’ve just had bad luck, or they are better now. I have made it a point to stay far away from anything associated with Fujitsu.

    Am I wrong about them or have other had issues with Fujitsu?

    Unfortunately, the signs are pointing to Nikon continuing to be struggling to turn profitable. This hurts sales to large buyers who are careful if they think a company may be unstable. It might be just a little nudge that results in a order going to a competitor.
