  3. This is such a cool post. I have had a great interest in trick photography and reading this is a real inspiration.

  4. :) )) Nikon are really deep in the consumers needs with this one. I can’t believe I could live the day when a corporation decided to listen to what the consumer actually wants in a product, putting the customer in a higher place than marketing or profit. Way to go guys, you are the new role model for corporation standards. I can actually believe that we are walking towards progress. Not even Rover on Mars has at least 5% of these new great features. :) ))
