Celebrate 100 years of Nikon with Grays of Westminster and Nikon Owner at our Grand Christmas Event on Friday, 1st December

Grays of Westminster and Nikon Owner magazine would like to invite you to their grand Christmas Event in the magnificent Regency Restaurant at the Institute of Directors (IoD), 116 Pall Mall, London.

 

The champagne reception and superb Christmas dinner will be followed this year by a unique presentation by Andrew Main Wilson who has set out to become the first person to visit every country in the world and tell the story of the 1,000 greatest travel experiences on Earth in images and words.

With photographic shoots in 175 of the world’s 200 countries now complete, he is very close to finishing his global odyssey. The images from all 175 countries have been shot using Nikon cameras and lenses, from the Nikon F4 to the Nikon D800, and the 14-24mm to the 80-400mm Nikkor zoom.

Inspired and influenced along the way by interviewing world leaders such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir David Attenborough and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Andrew Main Wilson will share his exciting stories and the iconic images of his epic adventures across the globe.

The Institute of Directors

The Institute of Directors is a grand Grade I listed Regency building and its sweeping marble staircase and vast walls, covered in 18th and 19th century canvases, provides a spectacular backdrop for the evening; the period restaurant at the IoD is a most fitting venue for this elegant celebration.

Nikon D7500 Wins EISA Best Prosumer D-SLR Camera 2017-2018

Nikon D7500 Wins EISA Best Prosumer DSLR Camera 2017-2018

 

London, UK, 17th August 2017: Nikon is pleased to announce that the Nikon D7500 has won the European Prosumer D-SLR Camera 2017-2018 award, presented by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). This Award reflects the pooled experience of EISA’s expert magazines and is a fitting tribute to the innovative engineering and great performance of the D7500.

EISA comments for Nikon D7500 – winner of the European Prosumer D-SLR Camera 2017-2018 award

The D7500 is an advanced D-SLR camera that packs much of the innovation of the acclaimed D500 into a lightweight, robust and more affordable body. Using the same 20.9 million pixel image sensor, processor and wide ISO range as the D500, the D7500 is a capable and versatile tool in the hands of a passionate photographer. With a burst speed of 8 frames per second and Nikon’s proven 51-point AF system it is well suited to capturing fast action. Thanks to Nikon’s SnapBridge technology, transferring images to a smart device is fast and seamless.

EISA represents the unique collaboration of 50 special interest magazines that cover all aspects of audio, video, home theatre, in-car, photographic and mobile technologies. EISA currently has members in over 23 European countries and, through its annual Awards, has been celebrating the very best consumer electronics products for over 30 years.
