Yet another reason why Nikon’s star seems to be rising

Nikon has done a great job of featuring the work of Flickr users in their Nikon Stunning campaign, and the Nikon Stunning Gallery tag on Flickr. Now they’ve taken it up another notch by introducing the Nikon Digital Learning Center group. It’s a great idea, marred only by a very unpleasant copyright license policy for pictures in the pool. That doesn’t seem to extend to the discussions, so you could still post pictures there in order to gain educational value from the group. That flaw aside, this Nikon seems to be pounding Canon into the ground as far as their use of Flickr. Oh, and their ability to produce an ISO 25,600 DSLR.

  • yeah, i subscribed to the group so i can track the postings more easily, but their image policy is a bit annoying.
    some of its there to cover their butt i’m sure, particularly the business about subject age. the rest so that they can use them in their own advertising. so you have to weigh each image – do you want it potentially featured on a Nikon web site or not. Good exposure.

    I’d like to see images produced from the Hi-ISO mode before passing judgement.

  • also note that its only the top-end D3 that does the ultra high ISO, the lowly old DX-format D300 *only* does 6400.
