    EMBRACING NATURE 2006
    -
    A NIKON NATURE OUTING ORGANISED BY CLUBSNAP, NATURE PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY SINGAPORE, AVIAN WATCH ASIA, AND NIKON USER FORUM


    For the first time in Singapore, 4 photographic communities are putting their hands together to present “Embracing Nature 2006” an outing that brings together nature lovers and photographers (from veteran to newbie) together to interact and have fun.

    This event is open to all Nikon users (SLR/DSLR users as well as Nikon Prosumer Digicam users who are thinking of upgrading to SLR/DSLR) and potential Nikon users (those who may be planning to switch to Nikon). Due to the limited availability of places, priority will be given to Nikon users. All non Nikon users will be placed on the reserve list first.

    A major highlight of this outing will be a talk on the use of Digiscopes, a viable and popular alternative in nature appreciation and photography.

    A team of accomplished nature photographers from Clubsnap, Nature Photographic Society, Avian Watch Asia and Nikon User Forum will be at hand to guide participants.

    Upz for PE. This is going to be a fun event. Those who've been dying to try out the Nikon DSLRs are also advised to take this chance to see for yourself what the D2HS/D2X/D200 is capable of.

    Advisable to bring, if not at least CF card, as the eqpt are for all to have a first hand experience. There will not be a case of an equipment assigned to a participant throughout.
