NikonD700.com expands - now NikonHQ.com

May 21, 2009

The response to this site, NikonD700.com, has been phenomenal over the last year. We’ve had almost 1,000,000 - yes, one million - page views, and well over 300,000 visitors, which is far, far in excess of all expectations.

For that reason I have recently started a new, more general site - Nikon HQ. Content from here will be moved over shortly and expanded, with much more to come. Next up - a D5000 review.

So, why not come on over and take a look around? Let me know in the comments what you think, and what you’d like to see over there.

D700x due in October?

August 04, 2009

I don’t usually like to post things that are nothing but rumors, but after the recent D300 and D3000s announcements that tie up with the leaked Nikon DSLR roadmap for 2009/2010, I think this is worth mentioning.

Nikon Rumors has all the details, but to sum up it is supposed to be the 24.5mp sensor from the D3x in a D700 body, with a few minor improvements (enhanced AF, movie mode etc).

Launch date is expected to be on or around the 15th October. Stay tuned for more details as they happen!

One lucky wife - the Nikon D700… cake!

December 07, 2008

From flickr, one lucky lady was not only baked a delicious-looking D700-shaped cake for her birthday… but her husband gave her the camera as well!

Full marks for effort on this one!

Nikon hits the #1 spot

December 04, 2008

At the launch of the Nikon D3x DSLR, Nikon’s professional business manager Chris Hoare said that the company had finally become the number one supplier of digital SLRs, overtaking Canon.

In October 2008, it reached it’s target of becoming the number one DSLR manufacturer by unit volume in the key markets of the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA - a staggering 333% growth since 2004.

In the Pro space, Nikon’s UK market share is currently running at 63%.

AF-S 50mm f/1.4 available to order, getting rave reviews

December 03, 2008

The (long overdue) new AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G has now been received by a select few, and all that have seen it are seemingly impressed. Bjørn Rørslett gives the lens 5/5 on both FX and DX cameras:

The barrel distortion, typical for this class of lens, is kept under good control. Field flatness also is better than shown by most fast lenses. Image quality is quite good in fact at f/1.4 although some blue fringing can occur at high-contrast transitions, increases to f/2.8 accompanied by a rise in contrast and reduction of fringing, and really gets into its stride in the range f/4 to f/9 or so.

The aperture opening is nicely rounded and the out-of-focus rendition (bokeh) is softer and less harsh than seen with the older 50/1.4 AFD model.

Pre-order at either Adorama or B&H.

Nikon GP-1 GPS unit now available for pre-order

After a long wait, the GP-1 is starting to appear on retailer’s web sites. No dates for availability yet, but prices seem good - third-party GPS solutions have historically retailed for $300 or more.

Nikon UK offers free Capture NX2 with D700

November 03, 2008

If you’re in the UK (like myself), and therefore can’t take advantage of Nikon USA’s $300 instant rebate, Nikon UK have a consolation for you: Buy a Nikon D700 and get a free copy of Capture NX 2.

You are eligible for this promotion if you have purchased a New Nikon D700 between 01/11/08 and 31/12/08, and must claim it before the end of January 2009.

Yeah, OK - I’d rather have the $300 too, but it’s better than nothing!
