Offline for few days

For the next two months, [NR] headquarter will be temporary moved to an undisclosed location in Europe and will operate on European time. In the next few days I will have limited Internet connectivity and will probably be offline. In the mean time, feel free to use the [NR] forum.

For those of you who are new to [NR] and are eager to know what's next for Nikon, I have to remind you that the rumor mill always comes to a halt after an official announcement. I will continue to publish only information I feel comfortable with, instead of filing the site with wild guesses and worthless speculations. I can publish rumors like this all day long, but if you want serious and reliable stuff, sit tight and enjoy the ride. I will continue to post other interesting Nikon related topics and guest posts until I start receiving some good "intelligence" again. I expect things to pick up again at the end of June.

Thanks for being a reader.

  • so, where are you heading to in europe?

    • Mike Devonport

      Yah! He moving to the next town.

  • Maddog

    “ undisclosed location in Europe..” Sounds very James Bond…

    • Banned

      That’s because it’s Poland, Romania or some other glamorous European destination not worth mentioning lol.

      • David

        Why would those countries not be worth mentioning?
        I realize this is not the place for such talk, but I could not resist.

        • Banned

          It’s just dirty

          • this guy specializes in making negative comments. He lives here, like some legendary creature who lives under a bridge. Someday he will get a life and we will be free of his annoyances. See below.

      • spass

        Indeed, terrible countries. Never go there!

      • Paul


  • kaze kaze

    umm… since when it starting to turn into some “customer service centre/ call centre” (hint: “undisclosed location” and “limited… access”)?

    • Tony

      It’s a rumors site after all….dude

  • Vic

    But why need to move? trademark dispute?

  • LOL

    Guess I’ll switch to Canon then.

  • Yey! I live in Europe and I’m so happy that I’ll be able receive updated during to my working hours!

  • Jo

    Will it become Nikon Rumours?

    • plug

      +1 or is that+o? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • already exists, redirects to this blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paul

      Haha, well done.

  • Anonymus Maximus

    Thank you very very much for your publishing and networking work and for excersising your discretion wisely.

    I like NR as it is with (substantiated) Rumors, Nikon news and Nikon Trivia, for it works in the just right mix.

    • Teun


  • Have a nice trip!
    Come to Faroe Islands and say hello!

  • Thanks for your good work and i hope: see you soon; greetings from Heidelberg

  • Joost

    Welcome in good old Europe!

    I guess ‘an undisclosed location in Europe ‘ means you are travelling around.

    Have a good time!

  • alvix

    I’ll offer you some nice italian food !!

  • Are you moving house Admin? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • no, not moving – combining a work related trip and a small vacation

      • Paul

        So when you mean Nikon Headquarters, you mean your physical self?

      • Ah so you meant a 2 months work and holiday trip! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • bjrichus

    Enjoy your time in Euro land.

    (From an ex-Euro, who decided the Dollar gave a better deal)…

    • Banned

      Up until now…

    • same here ๐Ÿ™‚

      • The invisible man

        Well, I can tell you that the Euro will go DOWN soon, we may see it equal to one dollar by the end of the year, and that’s bad news for me.

        • ShaoLynx

          Keep on dreaming, pal.

  • Perhaps you will see Dick Chaney at the undisclosed location. If you have any choice, you should go to Sorrento, Italy. The place is full of beautiful scenery and beautiful women. For the true intensity of a city with non stop street photography opportunities go to Madrid. (I have only been home from there for a week.)

    • Banned

      I hope he doesn’t take his cameras or wallet when visiting Italy, that’s all I’m gonna say.

    • jki


      I am not one to bash peoples photography but you are simply a pervert with a camera and this is not one of those instances where “I just don’t understand art” or “real art is controversial, so you must be doing something right”.

      • Please leave a comment on my blog if you don’t like it, this is not the right place. Also, leave your real name and address so I can sue you for defamation.

        • law

          Not defamation if it’s true.

          • That is correct law, but the accusation is not true in this case.

            • law

              That’s for the courts to decide. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • Seriously guys, he’s just people watching, and taking pictures of pretty girls. What the hell is wrong with that? The style is just standard candid. I don’t see any bias to see-through clothing, upskirts, or anything of that matter. Women are beautiful, and I’m not sure why you WOULDN’T take pictures of them.

        • Banned

          And did you give those people your name and address so they can return the signed model release? In this case they CAN sue you man. If at least those were good pics but they just look like some perv snapshots to be hanged in some cave.

          • While I don’t care for the photography, at least in the US this use does not require a model release.

            • The only places that I know of where the subject must give permission for non commercial publication are France, Norway and the Provence of Quebec in Canada. There is some question about Germany.

          • LOL

            He has the right to photograph what he wants on the streets. You don’t have to like it either.

            He’s not doing anything illegal. Morally, I dunno what he’s thinking.

  • C_QQ_C

    AH, sounds like you’re invited in Germany too .. ๐Ÿ™‚ ( mysterious smile…..)

  • Doug

    Does this mean the D400 will be released soon?

  • Robert kaufman

    I Think hรฉ is already in sweden. You Can tell by yesterdays post He will be trawling the restaurants of Stockholm to find Nikon reps dining. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • FX

      +1 lol!

  • RMT

    So what the hell are we supposed to do the next few days dammit!
    And what is Ken Rockwells problem?

    • Bryan

      • law

  • Alex Martin

    European time? Do you know that there is an hour of difference between London and Paris?
    Take care and learn as much as possible

    • M Jesper

      Also they drive on the wrong side, and didn’t want the Euro.

  • ‘Arry Garnt

    …for your sake I hope it’s not Germany!

  • The invisible man

    I know where NR moves but I won’t say anything, here in France we can keep a secret !
