Darryll Schiff: Honored Nikonian

Nikonian Darryll Schiff (username DSchiff) has the honor of being one of the 100 photographers on display in "The Collectible Moment: Photographs in the Norton Simon Museum", in Pasadena, CA USA, from October 13, 2006 through February 26, 2007.

This exhibit is a retrospective of the Museums collection in which they have chosen approximately 160 works to showcase their internationally known photography collection. Darryl's work "Untitled/Trees Lake Michigan" is a combination of three negatives shot in 1971 on what was his second Nikon, a F2, and is also in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, MOMA, George Eastman House, and others.
Since then, Darryll has used a F3 and a F5, and is currently working with a D200.

Nikon Embargoes Cuban Boy In UN Contest

Several news channels including Japan Times are reporting that Nikon recently honored a US embargo against Cuba in the course of handing out prizes at the recent 15th International Children's Painting contest hosted by the United Nations.

The Japanese camera maker was the co-sponsor of the contest, which provided all the winners, except a Cuban boy, with digital cameras during the awards ceremony in Algiers. Nikon stated that because of the U.S. made components within the cameras, they could not award him the device and provided him with an alternative prize of art materials instead. Cuban news sources supposedly claim that Castro took it upon himself to provide the boy with a similar camera to compensate for the national slight.

Quantum Introduces QNexus Flash System

NQf-web.jpg

Turbo-sc_shirt_press-web.jpg

PhotoPlus Expo 2006 Quantum Instruments Inc., of Hauppauge, New York, is introducing three major new products, as well as numerous new accessories and upgrades. This marks the largest one-time line expansion in the company's history and reinforces its role as an essential supplier of professional photographic instruments:

NEW QNexus When mounted to Quantum's new-generation Qflash 5d-R flash units, this ingenious receiver/decoder "reads" wireless TTL signals directly from Canon and Nikon shoe mount master flashes. It integrates multiple high-power Qflash 5d-R's into Canon or Nikon wireless TTL systems where they act as dedicated, full-function remotes controlled totally from the camera's flash menu. Qnexus supports all Canon and Nikon wireless flash functions including Manual, Automatic, TTL and TTL-Ratio.

A Qnexus equipped Qflash 5d-R produces 150 to 400 watt-seconds of beautiful studio-quality lighting (models QFT5d-R and QFX5d-R respectively). Qnexus greatly expands creative options for portrait and event photography. For example, photographers can make a great portable portrait set-up by using a Qflash in a softbox or with an umbrella, as the main light source, and use their Canon or Nikon flash for fill. Or, for those tricky, large group photos, they can use any combination of Qflashes with camera manufacturer's flashes as remotes, all controlled by a Nikon or Canon wireless controller. Qnexus/Qflash adds both power and versatility to the system.

Qnexus features a multi-function LED that indicates it is programmed for either Nikon or Canon wireless flash commands. Qnexus also indicates when the unit receives a command from the on-camera master flash or controller. A channel dial corresponds to the channel settings for Nikon or Canon systems. In addition, "Group" settings can be utilized to control multiple Qflashes with TTL ratios, or combine them in one group for extraordinary wireless flash power.

NEW Qflash 5d-R Qflash 5d-R ("d" for digital and "R" for Ratio)- is the latest evolution in Quantum's proven Qflash portable flash line. The new 5d-R series used with Quantum's FreeXwire digital radio system, now support wireless control of all dedicated camera-flash functions Manual, TTL, Auto, Auto-fill and TTL Ratio up to 500 ft. away!

Qflash 5d-R units blend seamlessly with Canon, Nikon and other popular, professional, digital camera systems using Quantum's proprietary QTTL adapters. In some situations, Qflash even provides capabilities a camera system may not support- such as wireless remote Fill-Flash. Exposure ratios for local and remote Qflashes can also be set from an on-camera Qflash 5d-R, even if the camera system does not support TTL-Ratio.

Combined, the Qflash 5d-R and FreeXwire systems open up an exciting new world of wireless- creative freedom, where even the most complex lighting set-ups can be accomplished quickly, easily and reliably.

The new 5d-R series includes two models: the Qflash T5d-R powered by Quantum Turbo-series batteries, and the Qflash X5d-R powered by Quantum's Qpaq-X battery system. The T5d-R provides up to 150 watt-seconds of beautiful, studio quality lighting (vs. 50 watt-seconds for shoe mount flashes) while the X5d-R units deliver up to 400 watt-seconds each.

NEW Turbo Compact Slim A new, ultra-lightweight, ultra-slim, ultra-compact addition to Quantum's popular Turbo battery line. The new Turbo SC ("S" for Slim and "C" for Compact) provides typical all-day flash shooting capacity like the standard Turbo, yet weighs less than a pound and fits easily in a shirt pocket! "It's so small, light and easy-to-carry"...said one photographer who tried it..."that I completely forgot it was there!"

State-of-the-art NiMH batteries power the Turbo SC for lightning-fast recycling times and high capacity. Despite its mini proportions, it provides up to 225 full-power flashes with Quantum's Qflash units, or 400 shoe mount flashes, on a single 1.5-hour charge. And, like all Quantum batteries, the new Turbo SC features a computerized "fuel gauge" that clearly displays the amount of power remaining and monitors charging progress.

The Turbo SC is compatible with all Quantum "C" and "CC-Series" flash cables. It includes a removable belt clip and a 100 to 200 volt charger. When the unit is registered, Quantum will send the customer a free leather shoulder strap.

Quantum Instruments, Inc. is dedicated to providing photographers with the finest quality products, proudly designed and manufactured in the USA. For more information visit www.qtm.com or call 631-656-7400.

Macworld Focuses on Aperture 1.5

Macworld has the latest review on Apple's Aperture 1.5.

If you plan to use Aperture primarily to import, cull, and organize photos, and you rely on Photoshop for image editing - by all means consider the latest version. Aperture 1.5 also deserves a close look if you've outgrown iPhoto and you primarily shoot in JPEG format.

Coolpix S Owners Score Free Zac Posen Cases

zac-posen-bag-320.jpg

For the discriminating Coolpix owner, Nikon has teamed up with popular designer Zac Posen to offer free cases for owners of S7c and S9 models.

The bags are stylish cases of soft Italian leather based upon the designer's Fall 2006 line of handbags, and are completely free with registration of the owner's model and serial number. (Click on Coolpix at the bottom of the screen).

UPDATE

We contacted Nikon USA's press folks today (October 17) and they assure us the limited quantity has not been depleted yet. (But, it's getting close).


Here's the transcript of Nikon's Press Release:


MELVILLE, NY (October 13, 2006) – Nikon is at the intersection of high fashion and high-technology this fall with a new partnership to provide a stunning look for style conscious and tech savvy digital camera users. Nikon and Zac Posen, House of Z, LLC, announce the creation of an Exclusive Limited Edition Zac Posen COOLPIX Camera Accessory. Nikon COOLPIX users can now carry their digital camera in a fashionable yet functional camera accessory.
"As a style-focused brand, we are constantly looking for new ways to accommodate the image-savvy consumer. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Zac Posen, a celebrated and talented designer," said Lisa Baxt, senior communications manager, for Nikon, Inc. "This partnership is based on our admiration of his creative talent, his love for Nikon and how his fashion line plays well with the stylish design of the COOLPIX Style Series cameras."
Posen's inspiration came from his current Fall 2006 clothing and hand bag collection with the look and feel of vintage camera cases. The COOLPIX Camera Accessory is made with luxurious Italian leathers which provide stylish durability and complement Posen's current collection. Posen's signature Z rivets complete the piece as a beautiful accent.
"I've partnered with Nikon because I believe two brands have synergy and both appeal to customers with high expectations for quality and design," said Posen. "Working closely with Nikon has given me the opportunity to create a spectacular accessory for an equally stunning digital camera."
The Zac Posen COOLPIX Camera Accessory will be available beginning October 13th on StunningNikon.com. The limited time, exclusive product will be available to Nikon COOLPIX users only. The accessory was designed for the new line-up of Nikon's COOLPIX Style series digital cameras, including the new COOLPIX S7c and S9. These cameras are stylish, edgy and combine high-quality imaging performance with impressive photo sharing technology, like the S7c's ability to email images from the camera.
For more information about the Nikon and Zac Posen partnership and to secure one of these great looking accessories, visit StunningNikon.com.

NGS Wins Latest Round in Copyright Battle

PDN Online reports that NGS has won the latest round in the copyright battle that started in the late 1990s when the magazine published previously used images on a CD-ROM without paying re-use fees to the photographers. The latest ruling centered around the photographers' contracts which could have contained language that covered such use, but the judge in the proceedings found the content "ambiguous."

Nikonians have their Nikon cameras but on some occasions they need a dose of creativity. If you are looking for some artistic inspiration take a few minutes to check two very interesting links from Nikon. The first, called Discover Nikon, gives us an International approach.
The second, called stunning is Nikon highlights the work of photographers using the Nikon D80 exclusively. Don't forget our Nikonians are also sharing their photos in our Picture I Took and Constructive Critique & Technical Advice forums.

Why is this Nikonian smiling?

You would smile too if your name was Pascal Baetens and you just finished a crowd pleasing session of model shooting demonstrations on behalf of Nikonians at the 2006 Photokina in Cologne, Germany. Nikonians co-founders J. Ramón Palacios and Bo Stahlbrandt have thanked the enthusiastic volunteer team for making their first organized appearance at the show a success and are still responding to the many photo-imaging professional contacts, friends, sponsors and advertising partners they met at the Photokina.

Returning home with a large collection of digital images and a long list of new industry professional contacts, JRP barely had time to unpack before making a few more photos available to Nikonians who missed the show, along with a quick look at the highlights, now available online.

The highlights photos include what could be mistaken as an average image of Bo (on the left) and some visitors admiring a tripod. That was no ordinary tripod.
It's called the "Super Gitzo" - and it is a combination of Gitzo Tripod, Markins Ball head, TB Plate, Titanium spikes and our Nikonians Tripod leg wraps by OP/TECH. For a closer look at how it is put together, click here.


JRP and Bo took a few seconds to pose with fellow Nikonians before one of the Pascal Baetens sessions started and then continued to greet visitors, including a number of Nikon representatives from around the world.


There was plenty of work for the Nikonians Team both behind and in front of cameras. Here we have a previously unpublished shot of JRP hefting some serious Nikkor glass.




Meanwhile, Bo met with Andrew Alexander from Imaging Resource who prepared the interview above.
For a look at all the videos prepared by the Imaging Resource staff at the Photokina, click here.

The Nikonians Team also spent quality time with our good friends from LetsGoDigital, Dennis Hissink and Mark Peters, who were working on their Photokina Live Coverage edition.

With the 2006 Photokina successfully completed, Bo and JRP promise a return engagement in 2008, and they hope to see you there.

Nikon has released awaited firmware updates to the top-end Digital SLRs: the D200, D2X (not Xs) and D2Hs.


The D200 receives an update to use the WT-3 wireless transmitter, and Image Authentication capability.

The D2X and the D2Hs have a lot of improvements, including:

H 0.3 (ISO 1000 equivalent), H 0.5 (ISO 1100 equivalent), and H 0.7 (ISO 1250 equivalent) options will be added between the ISO 800 and HI-1 sensitivity settings (D2X only).

Autofocus subject acquisition and tracking capability will be improved.

A "Black-and-white (sRGB)" option will be added to the "Color mode" settings in the shooting menu (D2X only).

An "Image authentication" item will be added to the setup menu. However, the optional Image Authentication Software is required to verify image authenticity.

A "Trim" item will be added to the shooting menu (D2X only).

The "Custom" option in the shooting menu's "Tone compensation" item will be modified so that up to 3 user-defined curves can be downloaded to the camera.

An upgrade of Nikon Capture 4 Camera Control is scheduled to support download of 3 curves to the camera. The optional Camera Control Pro software can also be used to download curves to the camera.

A "Save/load settings" item will be added to the setup menu.

The "Mirror lock-up" item in the setup menu will be modified so that the mirror can be locked in the up position under battery power as well as AC adapter power.

The number of options available for the "Lock-on" item in the Custom Settings menu will be increased to 4: "Long", "Normal", "Short", and "Off".

"Max. sensitivity" and "Min. shutter speed" options will be added to the "ISO auto" item in the Custom Settings menu.

The "Maximum shots (Max No. of shots taken in continuous shooting)" item in the Custom Settings menu will be modified to allow a maximum setting of 60 shots.

The "FUNC. button" in the Custom Settings menu will be divided into two items: "FUNC. button press" and "FUNC. button + command dials" (D2X only).

A "Recent settings" item will be added to the setup menu.
