    Not too sure for other event but for Big Walk, there is limited slot. If they squeeze in 10 people from other brand, 10 nikon user will not get a chance to don the yellow tee and shoot.

    For Big walk, other brand also can shoot. Just not freebies and chance to win any prize.

    So if that's the case, why open to the floor and end up, the Nikon users don't benefit?
    Hi Espn,

    If I win a 17-55 and a SB800, with the right state of mind, I would go get a D70 and never come back to forum again! Cheers!

    Canon also has its own share of exclusivity. At exhibitions and road shows, they only allow Canon users to take pictures of their models. Use a nikon? Can't take photo of their model......and this is even where no one else is taking their model.

    espn, appreciate it if you can feedback to nikon. basically non-nikon users are not asking to gatecrash limited seating nikon events where they will compete with places for nikon users. but for outdoor events like big walk, it will be nice to have nikon users and others participating.

    for me no issue cos i have nikon cam anyway. would be nice to be able to bring non-nikon user friends along.

    Hi, we're discussing about the event planning and not talking about generousity. Please try to keep to topic and not attempt to raise any flames.

    During IT Shows, I tried to take picture of Canon's models, but they don't allow me. Fyi, I was holding Canon 300D at that time. So I think they don't discriminate.

    Did they say why they don't allow? Not sure if the situation I'm talking about is the same as yours.

    THe situation I was talking about is clearly where photography of their models are allowed, except that you need to be holding a Canon camera in order to take.

    Simple answer:
    Nikon wants to reward those who had help them become successful. Exclusivity is a reward thanking supports of Nikon. Simple enough?

    This will entice others to join this membership and thus form a win-win situation.

    To those who complain and whine, answer me this: why don't you complain about exclusive offers to particular credit cards, exclusive special events or discount for owners of a particular brand of cars, discount for F&B and special offers if you work in a building, area or that the building belongs to a particular company?

    Comparing I get NIL from M1 (since 1998) and Maxonline (since 1997). Nikon has been the next best in rewarding their users.

    I'm a Canon DSLR users, and quite dissapointed of not being able to participate in Nikon's events.
    Hah?....as a brand Nikon is not exclusive. It is a common everyday brand. I got a few too. No big deal.
    By the way Mitsubishi owns Nikon.
    Alpa is exclusive. Blancpain (watches) is exclusive. Rolleiflex Gold Urushi (exclusive)

    Nikon brand is about as exclusive as Planta margarine or Maggi instant noodles.

    If you mean they exclude others from joining in.
    Nothing wrong with Nikon giving their customers 1st priority.
    But stupid in a way as it is preaching to the converted.
    You evangelize to the non-believers, not to those who already believe.
    You will not grow a market share this way.

    Anyway, you did not miss much. How "exclusive" can a Nikon event be?
    ah-so and ah-lian stuff.
