According to Nikon Japan, the GP-1 GPS unit has a suggested retail price of ¥21,000. Quick check using Google showed that it is about US $220 (subject to currency exchange rate variation). The price is similar to the US price we have seen.

There still isn’t much official availability information yet. Someone on DPReview said it should be available before December 10th.

The term High key typically refers to photos with dominant highlight tones. Most “correctly” exposed photos should have the key or main tone at the midpoint between white and blackpoint. By shifting the keytone up (high key) or down (low key), the photos can be made to convey different moods. High key photos can convey happy, relaxed mood while low key brings drama and tension.

Typically high key photos are result of the combination of light foreground and background, narrow tone range (less contrast), and shadow-less even lighting. Some degree of over exposure helps but it should not be relied on solely. Read More…

Internet chatters are definitely getting hotter with the supposed December 1st release date for Nikon D3X, the latest DSLR camera with 24.4 mega-pixel full frame (FX) sensor. The guys at NikonRumors claimed that they have found the product information page (http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Digital-SLR/25442/D3x.html) for D3X, and even grabbed some images of the new Nikon D3X before Nikon took them down. These look awfully like the ancient D3 (front, back), but this can be. The D3X should be the higher pixel count FX format D3, so the body looks similar (or same), and Nikon marketing media department could be using the same setup to take the product shots, so you get very similar-looking images.

Now the page is blank and the images (front, back) are gone from Nikon site. So don’t waste your time trying…
