Latest News

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have not posted news or reviews for awhile. I have been having on going health problems that have yet to be resolved. A lot of these problems affect the site as it is nearly impossible to type or use a computer without pain. I am having a lot of physical therapy to deal with these problems and hopefully this year will be better than the last.

I am not able to answer emails until my health situation improves. As I said typing is very painful. I am still reading my mail and have a strong desire to reply to those I receive once things have gotten better.

I really miss working on my site and posting blogs. I also miss the contact with the people that read my reviews. Once I am in a better situation. The reviews and blog posts will start to flow again :)

Happy New Year

I know this is a very late New year post, as we now are at the 9 of January. Well better late than newer I guess:)

2010 was a rather slow year as far as new reviews, as I was struggling with a sore shoulder. On the good side though my site had more visitors than ever.
So I want to say a big thanks to everybody that has supported my site!

So what is my plan for 2011 then? Well hopefully there will be a lot of new reviews coming out in 2011. Another change that we will have in 2011 is that the sample pictures will be a lot better than before. I'm planning on a upgrade to the site as well as I feel that that is long overdue.

To sum up 2010: It has been a long 7 months with too much pain. Only a handful of selected assignments where done, after all the bills needs to be paid. That also resulted in the recovery being longer than it should. This also impacted my reviews a lot, as I was told to stay away from the computer. I'm now trying out some speech recognition software to allow me to get some writing done.

Failure to communicate

Guess who I´m referring to? If you guessed: Nikon, you just won a cookie:)
I haven´t heard a single thing for about 5 months now from Nikon Europe(Scandinavia/Norway) It´s not like they haven´t released anything lately.. No NPS(Nikon Professional Services)  preorder notices, no information about new equipment, nothing siltch, nada, not a single thing. In fact last time I heard anything from them was about a Nikon course on setting up Nikon CLS. And how to set up your camera, if you are a professional Nikon user, you shouldn´t need to attend a course like this if you ask me. But that´s not the point, the point is that the communication part is something Nikon has been saying for years that they are working on improving. Well it´s been about 3 years since I talked to the Nikon officials in Norway, and nothing seems to have happened since(at least on the comunique part). I´ve right up given up trying to call them, as they don´t answer the phone. I noticed on the newest NPS membership card they have removed the phone numbers of the back of the card (Scandinavia) I.e Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland). This does not look to me as if they are trying to improve their communication with their customers, or is it just me? To me this is not really a big problem, as they can´t usually provide a answer to the problem, nor do I thrust the repair facilities in Norway(fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me). Which brings me back to the reason I get all my equipment from B&H, now that´s a company Nikon could learn a thing or two about customer care, and service. I think what I´m trying to say is; this just isn´t good enough for a company like Nikon.

Review updates

Nikon D2H IR, Nikkor 24mm f/2.8D
Once again more delays... The Nikon 24mm f/2.8D review should have been done, but due to bad weather and shoulder problems it will take a bit longer until the review is done. I still need some more shooting with the lens before the review can be made. On the other hand, the 5.8cm f1.4 review will probably be out before the 24mm review. Nikon GP-1 review should be out by this weekend.
