Contest: Imagine the Nikon D4, win a ThinkTankPhoto Airport Airstream roller

With the lack of Nikon D4 leaks, we should have some fun and create our own. I would like to setup a small contest - create your own Nikon D4 rendering, drawing, photoshopped image, etc. and win a ThinkTankPhoto Airport Airstream roller.

The rules

  • Send your Nikon D4 image in .jpg or .png format.
  • Keep the image dimensions no longer than 900 pixels.
  • Keep the image size under 150KB.
  • You can photoshop an existing image or create one from scratch.
  • Make sure your original source is not copyrighted.
  • I will close this contest in 10 days.
  • Each entry will be published on the blog and uploaded on [NR] Flickr stream.
  • The winner will be selected by the [NR] with a poll. Depending on the amount of entries, I may select and include only the top 10 or 20 images in the poll.

    love it……will try this…..

    • god that bag is fine.
      i am buying lowepro usually but +1

  • Awaiting D5!

  • Tony

    What a fun thing to kill some time.

  • chuck

    When the page loaded and I glimpsed at the title I thought there was a D4 leak…
    That being said, the only one that looks good to me is the first one.

  • Pete

    Good idea. I would love to see some cool D4 designs.

  • Bart

    I think you mean “The Prize”……not “The Price”.

    Cool contest, I’ll give it a shot!!

  • Daniel Chin

    How about design an airport roller and win a D4?

    • preston

      I think there would be much more entries for your suggested contest 🙂

  • The invisible man

    There is already D4 accessories for sale on Ebay.
    We’re getting close to the D day ! (I mean D4 day of course)

  • ZinhaEq

    Well, that’s pretty simple. If you take a look down the D2/D3 line of cameras, there is not much problems predicting the D4. You take the D3 photo change the number and leave it alone and you’ll be the closest of all…

  • JonMcG

    Yeah, it seems fairly certain we’re going to see the D4 on the 24th, however judging by the poll results from yesterday, that’s only going to satisfy 10% of the userbase here. I have a sneaky feelling we’re going to see a D4 and D4v type of launch. Some kind of side-by-side D4 launch of the two FX cams that have been rumored and *not* see the D700 replacement we’ve virtually all been really wanting and waiting for…

    Hope I’m wrong…

  • I’m waiting Nikon. D4 delivery by the end of 2011. Exciting times!

  • PixelBrine

    Nice concept images except, why is the last one just an obvious canon camera with white canon lens and canon flash that says Nikon? Oh well, made me laugh a little if that’s what they were going for.

  • Is it possible for the file size to be under 150KB if it’s 900 pixels wide?

    • broxibear

      Hi michael,
      Use the “save for web” function in photoshop (if that’s what you’re using), mine worked out at 900 x 704 and 135kb.

    • 1% image quality

  • hexx

    some very nice photos on your Flickr stream 😉

  • broxibear

    Cool, I’ve just emailed you one…if the rest of you would be kind enough to not send one in I’d win by default lol ?…please…I need a new bag lol.

  • Haha I love how that Nikon KCJ camera has a Canon flash and lens attached 🙂

  • George

    Check your mail for the winner! Good luck to everybody!

  • CamaMan

    Hopefully the final product will look less like Canon (like D5100) and more like those Nikon prototypes we saw a while back!
    Anyway looking forward to some good renderings!:-)

  • George

    I like this bag… I might just have to run out and get this bag!!

    “Make sure your original source is not copyrighted”


    US copyright law surrounding derivative works are pretty clear. You can legally create a “fake D4” picture from whatever copyrighted pictures you want, and the finished product will be legal, as long as you made significant changes.

    Admin, please take down this discouraging and pointless restriction.

    • T140AV-Rider

      US Copyright Pah.

      Not everyone who posts here is a US resident. They might be in the country of Zog where there is a different copyright law. If they used a picture from Zog then their work might be illegal under Zog laws.

      Remember, the US is NOT THE WORLD (even though at times it likes to think it is…)

      • bubuh

        This blog is hosted in the US, therefore US jurisdiction is relevant.

      • bubuh

        These two cases don’t really speak to the situation at hand. In terms of commerciality, both of those derivative works took not only elements of the original, but derived their primary value from the original. People would easily buy the pixelated Miles Davis not for its pixeliness, but for the quality of the depiction of Davis, which is Maisel’s. Similarly the Hipple photograph derives all its value from the Jack Mackie sculpture.

        Fair use is not something to be brushed aside. Americans fought long and hard for these rights, and a little fear and ignorance is all it takes to lose them again. Look up the history of photomontage if you want to find copyright cases that are more relevant.

        And if someone comes banging on NikonRumors’ door, saying “This artist’s impression of a future Nikon D4 that someone spent hours crafting, uses a photograph of a D3 command dial that I own, therefore the artist’s depiction is illegal,” I’ll eat my hat.

      • Paul

        So we have to be able to take our own photos of a D3 if we want to photoshop an attempt? Every photograph is copyright someone.

        • you can create a mockup from scratch or use the official Nikon press images

    D4 Day four of august now so it´s gonna be a D4 and D800 why D800 eight month logic

  • Ain’t it sad that they give us absolutely nothing to write about? 😉
    Yes, they’re keeping the lid on tight – this time around – but I’m not quite sure they’re doing themselves a favor…

  • kyoshinikon

    I would post but I left mine at the computer at work (and they haven’t made me a key yet!)
