Holiday greetings and savings from the Photoproshop team

smsnta_100.jpgOnce again we approach that time of year when the urge to give is the strongest. All of us at the Nikonians Photoproshop wish you — your family and friends a Happy Holiday Season!
We traditionally double check our inventories and look for great deals to make your gift shopping more affordable, and this year we invite you to check our Holidays Specials:

Price-cuts-tripods.jpgLightsphere II flash diffusers, leg wraps, camera holsters and tripod bags, assorted camera plates and more are now featured. Offers are valid until stocks last.
You will enjoy the addition of white cross-out lines on our prices during this special, indicating your savings potential.

Make sure you scroll through the three pages of specials (nearly 50 at last count).


SPECIAL NOTE for our Nikonians members using the Photoproshop in Europe. Most of the items mentioned in this News Blog are also available "across the pond." Simply click on the Nikonians Photoproshop map for your chosen region.

Gift Giving
For fast reference we have also prepared a Gift Giving Ideas page with items ranging in price from less than $20.00 USD to $100.00.

These are the items guaranteed to put a smile on the face of a fellow Nikon enthusiast or Nikonians member.

Gift-idea-Bubble-level.jpgThey include the popular hot-shoe mount bubble levels (in both two and three axis models), our top selling Nikonians Pro Strap for your camera and the tiny digital single-lens-reflex camera in the shape of a Nikon which is actually an 8GB USB flash drive in disguise. These flash drives were great stocking stuffers last year.

Check the top of the page and have a look at our brand new Nikonians 2012 Calendar!

If you want to leave the purchasing decision up to your gift receipient, we have you covered.

Check out our gift vouchers in increments of $25, $50 and $100 USD.

Want to go large with that order?
210439.jpgWe're getting enthusiastic response to some of our specialized items such as the Solmeta Geotagger N3 GPS Receiver. This is a 3-axis smart camera GPS unit, with very quick and highly accurate GPS lock.

It is compatible with Nikon D3, Nikon D3X, Nikon D3S, Nikon D700, Nikon D300, Nikon D300s, Nikon D200, Nikon D90, Nikon D2X, Nikon D2Xs, Nikon D2Hs, plus Nikon D3100, Nikon D5000, Nikon D5100 and Nikon D7000.

MAGICA-Elements.jpgAnother popular item is our line of MAGICA products.
Nikonians co-founder J. Ramón Palacios spent many years researching the ideal tripod and he used the expertise of fellow members of the community to narrow that search down to MAGICA.

You can read his story on the search and results and judge for yourself.

---and Now-- the Hubs---
The collaboration between Markins and Nikonians on advanced camera support since 2004 has led to many innovations in the industry and now Markins brings us a new product, reducing the final weight of a MAGICA for added convenience in the field, improving the ability to pack it inside luggage for airplane travel by reducing its top diameter, while maintaining its vibration absorption quality.
Gift-Idea-Hubs.jpg
The Markins TH-200 and TH-300 Hubs replace the platform hub reducing weight and top diameter of Series 2 and Series 3 carbon fiber tripods respectively, whether a Mountaineer or a Systematic model, providing a slim profile while keeping the sturdiness and vibration dampening of the previous TB base plate based MAGICA.

Protect your investment
We now have an expanded catalog of LensCoat protection for your lenses and DSLR bodies.
LensCoat.jpg
These lens covers camouflage your 14mm to 800mm lens in a variety of patterns. They are manufactured from 100% closed-cell neoprene and offer protection from bumps, jars and nicks.

They also provide a thermal barrier, protecting your hands from cold lenses in lower temperatures. They are easy to install and remove, sliding on like a sleeve and leaving no residue on the lens. LensCoat™ lens covers are waterproof, providing protection in harsh conditions.

Other features include clear, flexible UV plastic windows over the AF/VR controls and the distance-scale window. The cover has custom holes revealing your alignment for lens changes to be made without removing the cover. They are available for a wide variety of lenses and for teleconverters.

Your purchases help sustain the growth of the Nikonians community. We thank you for your support!
