p.1 #1 · Nikon couldn't pay for this


Just saw this on a news feed:

Usain Bold after winning the 200m clowns around with a camera—and not just any camera!

Priceless!

he was shooting 1000 togs in the newspaper tog's hutch, there will sure be lot of canon shots of him. Though canonist will most likely not be bold about it.

and to the OP: nikon would most likely pay for it if it wouldnt be already spread for free everywhere. Some will never learn: if you got killer shot, think $$$$ not back patting on photographer's forum

It's a good idea for a picture, but not a good picture. Show that it's Bolt, and put sharp focus on D4.

I believe it was from the same photographer, who he's got to know personally.

Yeah the reverse shot is funny. The photographer that gave him the camera to use is the only one camera less. And yeah Nikon couldn't pay enough to get this free publicity. Though if they use it an advertisement they'll have to pony up the dollars.

no, look at flickr and many other sites.
americans or not, photogs nowadays actually giving everybody their treasures for free.
and if a company wants something specific, they announce competition and get 1000 shots for nothing to chose from.
Sad world.

Maybe he owns one or more Nikon cameras, or any other dSLR. So he knows what he is doing. What is interesting about that? Actually, BBC has some photos online that Bolt took with this camera.

As for Nikon paying him, I agree with you. They can However, the question is was this predetermined and a publicity ploy by Nikon or was it just something Bolt did at the spur of the moment?

There was an earlier post about this. I thought Nikon should put on the caption "because the Olympics doesn't give out red ribbons".
