Photokina attendance strong, Nikonians Team on the prowl

Model_88.jpgOur Nikonians Team at Photokina 2010 has been taking a few minutes every now and then to go have a look at the massive collection of exhibitors….

----and of course a "must visit" is the Nikon Booth (shown here during a rare quite moment before the crowd hits).

Nikon-Booth-Photokina_2010_300.jpg

We hear there's a bit of disappointment from some booth visitors who were truly expecting to see the unveiling of a brand new top-of the-line FX format Nikon DSLR. Most visitors to the booth were occupied taking in some of the lectures and (of course) handling the gear, which included Nikon's newly unveiled Nikon D7000, two new lenses geared for the pro-market and the SB-700 Speedlight.

Models_Photokina_175.jpg
Nikonians Team volunteer Thomas Berg (twberg) borrowed a Nikon D3 from Albert Esschendal (alberte) and an AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens to focus on a pair of models posing for photographers at the show. Thomas has good taste -- that lens is retailing in the ball-park of $9,000 USD.

The Photokina 2010 Press Room is estimating 50,000 visitors in the first few days arriving at a rate of seven percent higher than the figure recorded at the equivalent point in 2008.

The trade fair is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Nikonians booth is in Hall 5.1 -- which carries the theme "Meet the Communities at photokina."

Social networks, photography festivals, associations, and publishing houses are offering photokina visitors a unique platform with diverse highlights on and beside the big stage.

Busy at the Booth - Nikonians Team welcomes old friends and distinguished guests

Photokina_88.jpgPhotokina 2010 Nikonians Team members at Hall 5, Booth A010 have been busy greeting the steady stream of visiitors attending Photokina 2010 in Cologne, Germany.

Our communications and marketing director Hendric Schneider tells us one of the highlights has been the appearance of one of our own members, Dennis_Owens_200.jpgDennis Owens (DennisOwens) who has been presenting classes on the Nikon Creative Lighting System.
One tutorial session ended with a round of applause

Dennis is from Gangelt-Niederbusch, Germany. He's a Platinum member witha sports shooting background and a very heavy camera bag.

Hendric_Joe_Patrick_300.jpgSpeaking of tutorials, an old pro in the field is Joe McNally, who's more than 30 year career has been an inspiration to many Nikonians members. Joe was the featured guest in the 100th episode of the Nikonians Image Doctors podcast.

Joe has been appearaing as part of the Manfrotto School of Excellence at this Photokina.
Joe is shown here flanked by Hendric (on the left) and Patrick Ludolph (at right). Patrick is head of the new German Podcast "Knackscharf" (translation: Extremly Sharp).

And now for something completely different
Our photos from the Photokina are being collected by the heavily jet-lagged Albert Esschendal (alberte) who traveled directly from the 10th ANPAT on the USA West Coast to the Photokina in Germany. Albert has a unique way of bringing out the best in his subjects, like this distinguished trio giving us their interpretation of the "Three Monkey's Story."

Photokina Nikonians Team is on the scene

Photokina_88.jpgAll set for the biggest show in the photo imaging world, our team has set up their booth and they are ready to meet and greet with fellow Nikonians.

This year's Photokina team includes (from left to right) Albert Esschendal (alberte), Hendric Schneider (Nikonians Marketing and Communications), Jurgen Plessing (Nikonians Photo Pro Shop), and Thomas Berg (twberg).
Photokina-Team.jpg

They will busy helping Nikonians co-founder Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) with daily booth activities and they will also be digging for news of the latest releases and announcements from the more than 1,500 companies on the scene in Cologne, Germany.

One booth they are sure to check out fairly quick is our friends from Think Tank Photo (hall 02.1 and stand A037).

The Think Tank Photo Team will be displaying Version 2.0’s of their popular Urban Disguise and Digital Holster product lines:
TT-bag.jpg
Press Release:
SANTA ROSA, CALIF – For photographers operating in urban or dangerous environments, carrying thousands of dollars worth of photo equipment can be an invitation to have their gear stolen. Now, with Think Tank Photo’s completely upgraded and larger Urban Disguise® shoulder bags available in October, photographers can travel in style while still protecting their valuable equipment from prying eyes.

The Urban Disguise V2.0 Series is specifically designed for professional digital SLR equipment, with some models including special laptop compartments. Each model features multiple pockets, YKK lockable zipper sliders, a comfortable, padded shoulder strap, and a seam-sealed rain cover. Specifically:

- Urban Disguise 35 V2.0 – Carries a 13.3” laptop with a regular size DSLR or a 10” netbook with a pro size DSLR. Also carries a 70-200 f2.8 attached to a DSLR with two to three additional lenses.

- Urban Disguise 40 V2.0 – Carries regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom lens attached and two to four additional lenses.

- Urban Disguise 50 V2.0 – Carries up to a 15.4” laptop, a regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom attached, and two to four additional lenses.

- Urban Disguise 60 V.20 – Carries up to a 17” laptop, a regular or pro size DSLR with a standard zoom attached, and three to five additional lenses.

- Urban Disguise 70 V2.0 – Carries up to two pro size DSLRs with lenses attached in main compartment. Can fit a 70-200 f2.8 attached to a pro size DSLR.

“This design concept is the culmination of years of observation of photojournalists and other photographers who have jury-rigged their bags to decrease their public exposure,” said Think Tank Photo founder and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “Whether you are a professional who wishes to maintain a lower profile in dangerous situations or a serious amateur who wishes to lessen the risk of having your gear ripped off, the Urban Disguise’s low profile allows you to carry the right gear with less fear.”

Press Release
TT-holster.jpg
SANTA ROSA, CALIF – Sometimes all photographers need in the field is one digital SLR body and one lens attached. Other times, just additional lens or accessories need to be added to the kit. To meet this need, Think Tank Photo has completely redesigned its line-up of Digital Holsters™. Available in early October in five sizes, their expandable “Pop Down” section allows them to hold lenses of two different vertical heights with the hood in position or with it reversed. A feature new to V2.0 is the built-in side attachment system compatible with most Modular, Skin, or Multimedia components.
The Digital Holsters also feature a side pocket for holding memory cards, a soft flap to cover the camera’s LCD, a shoulder strap, and an externally accessible seam-sealed rain cover in every model. They fit most tripod plates while attached to the camera.

They come in five sizes:
- Digital Holster 10 V2.0 – Form fitting to a small, regular size DSLR with a zoom lens attached.

- Digital Holster 20 V2.0 - Form fitting to a regular size DSLR and a 24-70 f2.8 with lens hood in position or reversed. When the “Pop Down” feature is extended it will also hold a 70-200 f2.8 with the hood reversed.

- Digital Holster 30 V.20 –This is the only top loading bag for a DSLR that can hold a 70-200 2.8 with its lens hood attached, while connected to a regular DSLR.

- Digital Holster 40 V2.0 – Designed for a pro size DSLR and a 24-70 f2.8 lens with hood in position or reversed. When the “Pop Down” feature is extended it will also hold a 70-200 f2.8 with the lens hood reversed.

- Digital Holster 50 V2.0 – Designed for a pro size DSLR and a 70-200 f2.8 with the lens hood reversed or in position, ready to shoot.

Fall Harvest of Nikon Coolpixes: P7000, S80 and S8100

Just in time for the Fall Season, Nikon has announced several new Coolpixes; the flagship P7000 with a 28-200mm zoom reach, the enhanced S8100 with back-lit CMOS sensor and the slim-line OLED S80 compact.

The much anticipated flagship P7000 updates the professional Coolpix compact line. Nikon has reduced the megapixel count in order to improve low-light image quality, the maker's first (albeit unstated) acknowledgement that pure MP count is not the first standard by which to judge cameras.

Other features include:

  • Enhanced NRW (RAW) file format now editable by Capture NX2!
  • 28-200mm 7.1x Zoom Nikkor ED lens
  • Built-in Neutral Density Filter
  • 720p HD Video with Stereo Sound
  • EXPEED C2 Imaging Processsing Engine
  • PSAM Shooting Modes
  • Dedicated dial controls for ISO, White Balance, Exposure Comp and more
  • 5-Way Vibration Reduction
  • Optical Viewfinder
  • Artificial Horizon to ensure level shots
  • High ISO up to 6400 at full resolution
  • Built-in Intervalometer for timed interval shooting
  • Optional Wide-Angle using the WC-E75A for 21mm focal length

The S8100 updates the top-tier "Style" Coolpix line by coupling a 12.1MP Backlit CMOS sensor with a 10x 30-300mm Zoom Nikkor ED lens and a 3-inch 921K rear LCD Clear Color Display.

Other features include:

  • 4-Way VR Image Stabilization
  • Expeed C2 Image Processing Engine
  • High ISO up to 3200
  • Full 1080p HD capture with Stereo and HDMI output
  • Shoot stills while in Video Mode

The ultra-slim S80 (0.7 inches thin) brings unique and creative edit functions via a large 3.5 inch Ultra-High Resolution (819K) Organic LED rear display that not only gives access to the camera's key functions, but allows the photographer to write or draw on the image using touch controls.

Other features include:

  • 14.1 MP CCD sensor
  • 5x Wide-Angle to Tele 35-175mm Zoom Nikkor ED lens
  • 5-way Vibration Reduction System
  • High ISO up to 3200 in full resolution
  • Expeed C2 Image Processing engine
  • Built-in Slide Show with Music
  • 720p HD Movie capture with Stereo and HDMI Output
  • Sliding lens cover design that serves as Power On/Off

Your own iPhone app

Based upon our free mGallery app for iPhone, Nikonians is now providing professionals and ambitious amateur photographers with the possibility to showcase their portfolio on their own, branded iPhone app.

The app is branded with your own name (or studio/company name), logo and contains information about how to order your work and your availability for assignments. The app has your name e.g. "Bobby Brown Photography", so potential customers can easily find it in the Apple iTunes app store.

The branded portfolio app shows a screen on startup with your own work or logo and then only shows the images you select to be shown. You can easily replace these images at any time and you decide which resolution you want to be available to the viewing audience.

We will roll out these apps on a first-come-first-serve basis starting end of September 2010 and the estimated one-time fee is $290 USD (250 EUR).

For more information about getting your own portfolio app to showcase your work and for marketing purposes, please contact us at myphotoapp at nikonians.org

Nikonians welcome new partner ACDSee


acd-_115.jpg
Nikonians.org is pleased to welcome one of the world’s leading developers and marketers of digital imaging software.

acdsee-pro3-box_175.jpgACD Systems International Inc., headquartered in British Columbia since 1993, are the developers of the popular ACDSee Photo Manager, ACDSee Pro Photo Manager 3 image management tools and Canvas, an advanced technical illustration and graphics program (among others).

ACD Systems has millions of consumer and business users and more than 33,000 corporate customers, including many Fortune 500 companies. For further details, please visit www.acdsee.com.

Nikonians communications director Hendric Schnieder tells us he was very happy to see this partnership come together:

"Even before ACDSee came on board, I had the personal experience to appreciate their approach to workflow management. When I started shooting digital images with Nikon Schneider-150.jpgDSLR's, the first problem I ran into was trying to keep track of my image files.
I did not have any clue of what software to use. I tried several file management solutions and at the end of my search ACDSee became my choice for workflow software.
There are many great workflow software programs but I was quickly hooked on the user friendly approach available in ACDSee Pro.
Key wording and tagging adjustments are smooth, easy and fast."
