    The Nikon Learn and Explore iPhone app now available in the UK.!!!!

    Its been available for about 2 months in the Irish Appstore.(and I presume UK too) I had emailed Nikon USA asking when would it e available in non US jurisdictions… I received a polite reply that the information was available on the website, which it is…

    I guess as the major English speaking Nikon market, it fell to Nikon USA to roll it out to other english speaking countries

    All the best

    It’s also now finally available in the Australian app store too.


  • ..” Nikon still has an operating loss for the full fiscal year ended March 31st.”

    I think this is an estimate. The full year results will be announced May 11th.

    Whoa…looks like I need to check the local Target store. I just checked Amazon and Adorama, and both are still out of stock on the SB600. If this is $175 for a regular USA warranty kit, that’s a excellent deal, considering I haven’t seen it elsewhere for less than $220.

    Also, no one should be paying $40 for an ML-L3 remote. I’ve never seen it for more than $20. Amazon has it for $16, and it looks like there’s now 3rd party versions for $10. 100% or more price premium is well beyond what I’ll pay to support a local retailer.
