    I'm sure if u make a mistake u wish others can be forgiving too right?

    basically the event is just sitting down and listening to the presentation of the new products
    why get upset if you're not invited? why not go for the informal session on 25th Jul instead at Millennia Walk Burger King at 6.30
    less crowd, everyone can chit chat, eat dinner, make friends and molest the camera there too.

    That is wat the coffee session is for...so that those who missed out...don't need to make do with the wat asia canon club.
    right on!

    yeah, it is something new that is a whole new standard for Nikon internationally.

    can't say i am pleased with it but rather amused.

    nikon has a huge growing user base in S'pore and the next flagship camera launch, let us hope they will have more seats available.

    i still think that Nikon S'pore should first and foremost place their NPS members at the forefront of such future launch for their Professional range of DSLR and send out their invitations to NPS members.

    find it really amusing that as NPS members, some of us were not even informed of such a launch and we have to find out from ClubSnap for the latest info!

    perhaps they can have 2 launch dates, one to cater for the masses, the other for the NPS members only.

    it is like asking ppl to go to a dinner, only at the last min they call u and say, 'sorry but no seat left for u'.

    if so, it really makes u wonder why the invitation in the 1st place? and some of us will feel, 'why me?'


    Nikon will do well to rectify this error and let's hope the next official professional grade DSLR launch in Singapore will not be such a disaster.

    as with any event, arount 50% of invitees will not be able to make it
    so IMHO i an quite sure the companies will invite more than the seating capacity of the venue

    Crack ....!!!! IT'S A HOME RUNNNNNNN!!! .........

    In order to be a member of NPS (Singapore), you will have to meet the following criteria.

    A working full time photographer who owned a registered photography related business in Singapore.

    OR

    An official photographer working in a registered business in Singapore

    An authorization letter (printed on a registered company letter head) indicating that the applicant is the official photographer attached to the company is required.



    Owned 2 professional bodies (D200, D300, D2 Series, D3 Series) and 3 Nikkor Lenses.

    Only registered cameras, lenses and accessories will be entitled to benefits of NPS
    Actually, so many none professionals own better than these, and anyone can register a company just for $65.

    i dun even own so many good stuff myself.
    but that is the new standard from Nikon. even Nikon USA endorses it. i guess it is a major shake-up.



    register a company should be more than S$65.

    u mean registering a business, right?
