Phonecall from HQ:

008, we have a mission for you:

You are required to turn the box up the right way and take the contents to New York for  an intense 2 day testing mission.
Enclosed you will find our new tool, the Nikon D800. An advanced and class leading 36 megapixel camera with advanced video options. 

Your mission is to be seen, provide visible coverage of your trip and report back to us with your findings.


So… I am honoured to have the opportunity to represent Nikon at a Nikon event in New York. I’ll be taking the D800 and some accessories to give it a proper workout. Of course I have accepted the mission and will be leaving on the 26th March 2012 for a non-stop event. I have no idea what the challenges are in store, I just know when and where I’ll be dropped and picked up. HQ is keeping the rest of the mission a closely guarded secret. I will reveal all as and when I know myself.

I will be blogging and tweeting at all chances. If you’d like to follow what goes on during the mission, keep an eye on this blog and my Twitter feed.  Rob on Twitter   I’ll be using the hashtag #NikonNY for posts from there.
Until then, I’m going to charge up the battery and get accustomed to the new machine!

*added another feed. Tumblr account to get some Behind the scenes stuff posted quickly.
