Nikon Fisheye Nikkor 5.6:6.2mm lens
→ Nikon was the highlight of the Westlicht camera auction in Austria:

“The Auction’s highlight came from manufacturer Nikon, whose products drew a great deal of attention. A collector secured the famous Fisheye Nikkor 5.6/6.2mm SAP, one of only three ever produced, for 156,000 Euros (starting price: 20,000 Euros). A black Nikon S3M with 60,000 Euros (starting price: 26,000 Euros) and a Stereo-NIKKOR with 54,000 Euros fetched further surprise successes. Among the historical cameras a Luxus Megalethoscope by Carlo Ponti, c. 1865, stood out, which, having started at 15,000 Euros, was in the end sold for 45,600 Euros.”

→ Nikon has a mobile application for photo sharing in Japan called Phopit – it allows photo sharing with friends and has one unique feature: you connect to people with sound. You don’t need subscribe nor login, all you have to do is send a specific sound with your smartphone. Each phone that receives the sound can see the shared photos. Anyway, Nikon is shutting down the app on December 10th.

→ Moving away from mirrorless back to DSLR (Nikon D750).

Phase One Capture One
→ Capture One Pro 9 announced. See the full list of supported Nikon cameras. Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 November release is also now available.
