Nikonians membership growing daily at Photokina
Saturday's activities at Photokina 2008 included a steady stream of visitors at the Nikonians booth in Cologne, Germany. The guests included Nikon representatives from all parts of the globe.
Nikon Nordic AB Key Account Manager Tobias Lehtinen (center) dropped in to say hello, carrying a brand new Nikon D90. Nikon co-founders Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) and J. Ramón Palacios (jrp), discussed the new camera, which is capable of shooting high definition videos with the representative, who comes from Bo's home-country Sweden. Mr. Lehtinen and his associate Mattias Hjortzberg gave the Nikonians Team a quick demonstration of the D90's features.
Nikonians administrator Gerold Brinkema (Asgard) described the workings of our new MAGICA camera support system to a pair of interested visitors. Gerold and his fellow Nikonians Team members have been sharing "stations" at the booth, taking turns on membership assistance and Photo Pro Shop sales. The Team ws assisted by a volunteer force of Nikonians, who helped steer Nikon users to the booth. The result has been a steady increase in memberships daily.
The backbone of the Nikonians visual presentations was provided by Apple, with four Apple Mac Pro 8-core,Two 2.8GHz computers, feeding four 23" Apple Cinema Displays.
Daily operations with these units was assisted by Apple computer consultant Mitch Enzmann, shown here inspecting one of the Mac Pro towers.
Only One day left---
If you have the chance to come by, we are raffling daily prizes, including a Markins Q3, Nikonians t-shirts, camera straps and more. Just do not forget your username! :)
If you bring your favorite shot on a USB stick, you also have the chance to get it printed on a large format photo printer.
Gary Fong (USA) will be on hand for demonstrations during the weekend. Stop by the Nikonians booth (Hall 2.1, E014) early to double check on his demonstrations schedule for the day.
Hope to see you there!
