Nikon Japan 日本廠生產線動態

Nikon 對 Nikon D3上市第一年的粗略估計期待銷售量大致為144,000台


Nikon 長久以來忽略了他們的專業系列 他們必須加快腳步追求對等條件 才足以恢復向對手挑戰的力氣 Nikon的名譽一向被建立在最高階職業照相機的品質 歷經那麼多年來的蹣跚而行 歸咎於他們的消費者產品線 (小DC) 市場失利 一直到他們世界性狂銷的救命機種 Nikon D70的面世 才力挽狂瀾 預計今年十一月登場的 Nikon D3至少在規格面看來 不僅匹配得上它家的條件 而且 甚至在許多情況下已經超越了

Nikon D3在日本的仙台工廠製造與(先前被報導披露 Nikon的唯一照相機在那裡生產的) Nikon D2Xs一起 仙台工廠雇用大約1,100個工人 每日只採單一班次運作當前的 Nikon D3產量為每天400台 仙台廠可能在(今年十一月)正式推出以後把每日產能追加到600台頂級機(每個月產量12,000台)若有需要時

傳言中 Nikon即將在接下來的六個到九個月間 推出一台與 D3所有的特點相似 但是採用25MP全片幅 價值$8,000美元的機種 那應該叫什麼呢 Nikon D3X嗎?

Nikon 泰國廠生產線動態

目前正在熱賣中的Nikon D40 D40X和D80 促使Nikon DSLR照相機一舉登上在日本及部份歐洲地區的銷售冠軍寶座 這幾款現有型號的市場需求仍然超出原定銷售計劃的數據 按照這個現況來看 Nikon想要再推動全新機型的可能性非常低

Nikon宣佈 他們在今年九月份開始Nikon D300 (雖然截至目前尚未出貨) 每個月的產量已經追加到60,000台 用來因應大眾對這臺照相機上市後的期望需求 Nikon本身對Nikon D300上市第一年的粗略估計期待銷售量大致為750,000台

Nikon D300是在泰國工廠中製造的 與Nikon D40 D40X D80 D200以及許多的Nikon鏡頭一樣 雖然 工廠雇員大約15,000個人並且 全天操作三個班運轉 它仍然有困難跟上愛好者的需求面 由於尚未上市的新機受到高度的期待 Nikon D200的裝配線很可能已被轉為Nikon D300製造使用 事實上 Nikon一再宣稱強調Nikon D200並未停產 然而世界上卻是早已全面性的大缺貨

對於買不起或用不到Nikon D300(或因機器太重)的高階業餘或職業用家們 真正所期待的Nikon D80升級款 也將在不到兩個月內逼近Nikon每隔16個月的小改款進化週期了 看來 蠢蠢欲動的你 蓄勢待發之前的你 從現在起 可得省吃撿用一番囉

Philippine Tarsier

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Photo by Don


Tarsiers are nocturnal creatures, being active and looking for food during the night, and preying mainly on insects. They are tiny animals, measuring about four to six inches in height. Their small size makes them difficult to discover. During the day, tarsiers sleep in dark hollows close to the ground. Their natural habitat is the tropical rainforest with dense vegetation and trees.




Photo by Don


Tarsiers have round heads that can be rotated 180 degrees, with large membranous ears that appear to be almost constantly moving. They have uniquely large goggling eyes (disproportionate to their heads and body), listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest eyes on a mammal. They use their thin tail about twice their body length to balance themselves. They habitually cling vertically to trees and are capable of leaping from branch to branch. The thick and silky fur is colored gray to dark brown. Their hind limbs are elongated and have …
