I had a small but bulky package appear in my mail box the other day. The return address was Nikon Professional Services. To small for my free Nikon D5. Maybe tomorrow. Once I got it opened I discovered my Nikon 100th Anniversary gift inside.
I have been a NPS member for about twenty years. Whenever a new top of the line pro body is introduced Nikon sends out promo packets. I still have mine from the introduction of the F6. I have only used the services that NPS offers a few times but when the need arises it's nice to know that Nikon will take care of me quickly and professionally.
So I must say I was surprised when out slid my gifts. Nikon had sent me a nice NPS Anniversary pin and Notebook with attached Nikon NPS pen. The pin will go nicely with the 100th Anniversary pin set that they are releasing latter this year. The notebook is spiral bound with a Moleskine like band with silver embossing. Camera geeks will love the first couple of pages of the notebook because there are four pages of color photos of all of the SLR’s that Nikon has produced. From rangefinders to the current DSLR’s. The book then has about 100 pages for notes followed by a multi-year calendar. An elastic band keeps the pen in place.
