    A little unusual, considering they have no new product to announce.
    In the past, even with new product announcement, only 1 full-page ad.
    I think they are losing sales to Canon.
    Notice that they only mentioned their DSLRs/lenses, not the Coolpix PnS line.
    Canon is too far ahead in the PnS game, IMO.

    It's now or never. Christmas is coming. It's not easy to push all the other advertisers off the right-hand side (RHS costs more than LHS) of the prime news pages. If they did it on a Friday or Saturday, it's gonna cost a lot more.
    One burst of machine gun fire is more effective than single shots spread out over months.

    It would be more effective if they give out prices (first price: $100,000) to the best photo taken by a Nikon.... I will then be nikonised to participate ...

    If I'm not wrong, Nikon is not taking part in this week's Sitex Show. So they launch a media blitz instead.

    U know how the guys toilet at ur side used to be right? Where guys can accidentally become flashers if someone opens the guy's toilet door and a lady happens to walk by simultaneously?

    They installed a partition to avoid 'accidental flashing'....















    And removed it within a week.

    Does anyone read the content of the ads?

    Well, I noticed that they were harping that the VR is in the lens, design for and optimised for each particular lens and so forth. I guess it's aiming at Sony and then, Pentax......
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    Yup, noticed that. The thing is, Canon's IS and Nikon's VR were on the lens coz in those film days, they can only put stabillisers on the lens, you cannot stabalise a 35mm film frame. Guess when digital sensors came about, its just a matter of time before someone puts the stabilisers in the camera body - and Sony did just that.

    Wonder if Nikon products &/or services will cost more after today's blitz.
    It's like no holding back, no tomorrow.

    Not everyone read the newspaper everyday. If it spread over 4 days per week the hitting rate maybe higher. If you have fired a SAW weapon, you would know that the strategy is to fire 2 or 3 shots in a burst rather than all at one go.

    Anyway, i still prefer Canon style marketing... they are so confident in their products.. that they setup a booth and let people to go and test the lenses and cameras out to have a feel of how good it is. Sony and Olympus also did something similar...

    What can multiple full page ad achieve.. i take a look n that is it.. ok it appears on the straitstimes.. i still don't know how well it works..

    If Nikon can spend so much money on ads, why cant they spend a little bit more to get someone to write better English? I read through the ads but cannot understand what they really want to say...

    Canon's idea can also work the other way... When the 400D was launched, I hadled one in such a show booth and didn't like the handling... so such advertising may not work well either.
