Customize your backpack with user-friendly previews and an instant discount

MRLogo.jpgNikonians sponsor M-Rock has an online "pre-visualization" feature to help you choose the perfect camera transport and protection gear for your personal Nikon inventory.

526BigBladder.jpgAs soon as you visit the M-Rock home page you will find their products are now available with an instant 20% discount available, but that alone is not going to help you decide.
M-Rock has taken the next step for online shopping convenience by building a comprehensive database of camera, lenses and accessories sizes (based on all major manufacturers) and helping you make your choice with an advance look at the possible combinations. All you have to do is go to their "Bag Search" link and select "Nikon" to find a listing of compatible bags and backpacks.
Once you find your specific camera suggestions, the site takes an extra step, by providing a variety of "pre-visualization" views of the inner layout options and outside appearance of the pack (like this image of the 526 – McKinley showing the optional 550 Hydration Bladder).
You will see this pack, selling for $290 USD drop to $232 USD instantly as you begin to place your order.
This is just a sampling of the user-friendly shopping options available at M-Rock. If online shopping for camera packs has been a frustrating experience for you, try checking the M-Rock site for more information than you ever needed (plus that 20% discount).

Roberts Imaging sweetens the deal while you wait for the D3x

Nikonians Corporate Partner Roberts Imaging has a special deal on the table for our Nikonians members who are placing pre-orders on the new Nikon D3x.

Roberts-D3X.jpg
Your pre-order with Roberts will get you free 4G CF card, a card wallet and a $37.50 rebate on a Nikonians Gold Membership, just by mentioning your Nikonians Username when you place your order.

We checked with Derek Martin from Roberts Imaging for more pre-ordering details:

Nikonians members can call 1-800-726-5544 and ask for Mail Order, or they can email Roberts: with the subject line reading: D3x Nikonians

This contact will get you on the waiting list for the D3x and by mentioning your Nikonians membership and username you will be automatically in line for the special deal. If you are a member of NPS you should mention that also.

Your contact will place you on the Roberts wait list in the order they have received it, and you will not be asked for credit card information. There is no commitment for the purchase at this point.

Once Roberts receives their D3x shipments they will start contacting those who have placed their pre-orders, in the order they were received. Some will be reserved specifically for NPS members, and some open stock. For the open stock they will go down their list and contact each person. You will have a time-frame, usually a day or two, to get back with Roberts and confirm you still want to purchase the camera.

Derek says from that point on it's just a matter of paperwork and shipping times:
"If they confirm their order with us, we'll take their credit card information. First time customers have to ship to the billing address of an American credit card. International customers can ask us about establishing a wire transfer and we'll work with them. All orders ship signature required, no exception."

Nikonians who have identified themselves early in the pre-order with their usernames will then have the special offer automatically applied, said Derek -- "Before we ship their order, we'll add in a free Extreme III 4 GB CF card and a coupon for half off a Nikonian's gold membership." That half off is a $37.50 USD rebate on your Nikonians Gold Membership.

Pricing on the D3x is still currently showing only the MSRP ($7,999 USD) but Derek tells us your mention of the Nikonians username and this special offer will get you the best price Roberts Imaging can provide.

Nikonians Reach 150,000 Members

It feels like it wasn't long ago Ramón and I started Nikonians. Today we reached the 150,000 active members milestone.

Out of our 150,000 members, a majority are on the basic, free membership, but 8,937 or ca 6% are supporting the community through a Silver, Gold or Platinum membership. These memberships help to pay a part of the servers (we have a server cluster, plus several separate servers) and some of the maintenance and software development needed.

We are though dependent on other revenue streams as well. The customers in the community's own Photo Pro Shop and our sponsors and advertisers help out further to ensure we can exist and grow. Also buying a workshop in our Nikonians Academy help out.

If you are still not on a Silver, Gold or Platinum membership, this is a good time to sign up to help the community :-)

Think Tank Photo launches new series of photo backpacks

Nikonians facing challenges in carrying their gear in urban environments now have a new series of Think Tank Photo backpacks to choose from.

Street Walker HardDrive_external.jpgThe StreetWalkers series consists of three new backpacks with slim and vertical profiles -- and they are priced between $140 and $180 USD.

Any of the three would be an interesting and relatively affordable purchase for Nikonians seeking high quality photo backpacks but the design concept "behind the scenes" will be of particular interest to our female Nikonians and anyone else with smaller body frames and the need for navigating crowded places and public transportation while still being able to access their gear.
Think Tank Photo's press release explains: "A common complaint of female photographers is that photo backpack shoulder harnesses are designed for average-sized men. The shoulder straps on the StreetWalker have been specifically engineered to fit a wider range of sizes for both genders. Women in particular will appreciate the StreetWalker’s very narrow and vertical profile, especially when combined with the shoulder harness design.

Street Walker HardDrive_Internal.jpg
The three new StreetWalker backpacks are described by Think Tank Photo as :
StreetWalker -- A slim, lightweight backpack which will hold a Pro Size DSLR with 70-200 2.8 attached and hood in position. It includes a monopod/tripod mounting system, a contoured harness and air channel for increased comfort, and lots of pockets and organizers for customization.
StreetWalker Pro -- Designed for a Pro Size DSLR with up to a 400 f/2.8 attached, or a 70-200 f/2.8 attached and hood in position. It also includes the monopod/tripod mounting system, the contoured harness and air channel, and lots of pockets and organizers.
StreetWalker HardDrive -- Which hold most 15” laptops and a Pro Size DSLR with 70-200 2.8 attached and hood in position (the image above shows the internal layout). It also includes the monopod/tripod mounting system, the contoured harness and air channel, and lots of pockets and organizers.
The StreetWalker backpacks were designed by veteran camera bag designer Lily Fisher.
“First and foremost these lightweight backpacks give photographers quick access to their gear while allowing them to maneuver easily through crowds,” said Fisher. “Additional benefits are the slim profile and adjustable sternum straps. These backpacks also offer a unique benefit to women photographers, which is that the shoulder harness has been designed to fit our unique body types.”

Nikonians-- Don't forget -- if you decide to make your purchase using our Think Tank Photo Order Form -- Think Tank Photo will will send you a free gift with your order.

"Hervorragend" -- Just one more word describing the Nikon D3x

Thanks to the usual leaks and some clever marketing, the unveiling of Nikon's newest, and most feature-packed (and expensive) digital single-lens-reflex (DSLR), the Nikon D3x left little to the imagination beyond an actual test drive. D3x launch events were set up around the world and in Switzerland our Nikonian team of Hendric Schneider (Hendric) and Holger Wahl (holger) were invited for see the new Nikon "monster" for themselves. In German, the one word they heard the most was "Hervorragend" (rough translation: somewhere between outstanding and awesome)....

D3x-Front.jpgThe D3x hits the photography world with Nikon's first 24.5-Megapixel resolution sensor, which now puts Nikon into the world of image quality previously owned by professionals shooting medium format cameras.
Hendric, our Mass Media and Communications Director, says the host for the Swiss launch ran through a 30 minute presentation for a group of less nearly thirty imaging and photography journalists and professionals tracing the evolution of the Nikon DSLR line.
Pascal Richard, Nikon Swiss Manager of NPS Nikon Professional Services Marketing, told his audience this was just the beginning of Nikon's entry in the medium format arena.

Hendric-D3x.jpg
Pascal is shown here, handing a D3x with an AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens attached to Hendric (on the left). "An interesting point Pascal made was the comparison from a year ago when the D3 was announced and now," said Hendric. "He showed photos of the 11th International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Athletics Championships in Osaka in 2007, and pointed out the many Canon Lenses. Then he showed similar pictures from the 2008 Olympics in Bejing, now with many more black Nikon lenses. He said that's what Nikon is shooting for- to become number one."
D3-D3x-Compare-Top.jpg The professionals on hand with experience handling the D3 were quick to point out that the ergonomics of the new model were practically identical. Both physical handling characteristics and placement of hardware mirrored the D3, making the transition to the D3x an easy "step-up." In a top-side comparison, when you can't see the little "x" on the front of the camera, you would be severely challenged to say which model you had in your hand. The key differences and imrpovements are all inside.
Shooting-Menu.jpg In this photo of the Shooting Menu (in German), we see one of the 15 languages supported by the Nikon D3x. It supports: Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. The D3x has the same rugged shell surrounding a magnesium alloy frame used by the D3 for protection from moisture, dust and shocks.
The 3.0-inch super density LCD monitor provides a 920,000-dot screen viewable at wide angles up to 170 degrees.Model_Shoot.jpg
Following his presentation, Pascal Richard invited his guests to put the D3x to the test, with a live studio shoot and attractive model ready to go. His offer was taken up by many, including our own Hendric Schnieder and Holger Wahl, news editor of the German edition News Blogs. Among those testing the camera in studio conditions was Swiss fashion photographer Christian Ammann (photo above). Hendric tells us: "He was very impressed with how easy it was to handle. He had never handled the D3x but is very familiar with the D3 and he was pleased that the menu has the same structure."

Holger.jpg
Holger's shooting session was with the D3x and an AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens. He's shown here (on left) looking at some of the work produced by fellow guests with his host, Pascal.
The studio environment helped emphasize the Nikon D3x strength -- High resolution images perfect for use by Nikon's target market: "high fashion, commercial advertising and fine art." That high resolution work will best be utilized by the pros who are already equipped to handle the massive post-processing requirements of files exceeding 138 MB.

Model_D3x_Holger.jpg

The D3x will be available next month at a cost of $8,000 USD (manufacturer's suggested retail price). With a tough world-wide economy situation many Nikonians who can't afford the new Nikon DSLR flagship may be wondering why the unveiling of this 24 megapixel full-frame beast is of importance to them.

The benefit comes in a downhill pattern. The D3x launch was preceded by welcome price drops for the D3, which can now be found at half the price of the D3x. The technological steps used to perfect the D3x will sooner than later be passed on to future Nikon's in the "prosumer" range, and again at lower costs. The D90 currently on the market is a good example.
So, if you can't afford it, join the crowd -- but take heart in the fact that your Nikon world has just been improved.

As a parting shot, here's Holger's image of the model in front of the parachute.
His exposure time was 1/250 sec at an aperture of f/11 using ISO 100.
