    OK Nikon Samuari's!

    So the other group photographers with this "so called camera" has come up with a name of their own and a logo too.
    So I think we should come up with a logo too.
    We were first in organizing ourselves.
    So I challenge all of you Nikon Samuari's to come up with a logo for us!

    Samurai's are known for being warriors. So, is there an artist in the group?
    My artwork consists of stick people, which is why I photograph and don't draw or paint!
    :-O

    Something cool.
    Something that represents the warrior spirit.
    Something that shows what it means to be Nikon Samurai.

    Question I own both.

    That makes you confused! (And me too for that matter)

    Why, pray tell, do you own both?

    I have met one photographer who used both. Met him at an airshow. He used a Nikon F5 for the bulk of his photography (with a 500mm f4 on a Wimberly head), but he used a Canon EOS 3 for handheld subjects because Nikon's old VR technology wasn't up to Canon's IS. I must admit, I'm curious if he's still using both, or if he sold his Canon gear to buy some of the new Nikon VR lenses.

    But I digress. Please, do tell us why you have both.

    (You can sell those Canon thingies on Ebay you know.) :-O

    Re: OK Nikon Samuari's!

    Hey Arctirus - I think we should start our own club! Uh oh, now I'm in trouble with both...

    I'm mostly a Nikon shooter but also have a old Canon rangefinder. Nikon did make rangefinders a long time ago (and recently re-released them as collector's items) but they're a little pricey. My Canon is a poor man's Leica...

    99% of my shooting is with my 20D (and formerly digital rebel) but I still have my good 'ole Nikon FM around for the occasional black and white film shots.

    I love my 20D with all my heart and couldn't part with it yet at the same time I just don't feel like a "real" photographer without something that says "Nikon" on it in my hand. However the D70 wasn't even a consideration when for my latest purchase; it can't come close to my 20D.

    I agree, but did you notice that he can't bring himself to part with his Nikon.
    Seems like Paul said much the same thing.
    Hmmm. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

    Once you come up with the logo, I can get us a good deal on embroidered shirts. One of my students parents owns a place that does the custom shirt and hat thing and won't charge a set up fee for the artwork.

    Re: I own both.

    OK, my green canon logo is gonna get laughed off of this thread, but in the spirit of friendship and camaraderie (as we Irish are known for, heh heh), I'd like to put forth my idea of what your logo should look like.

    Ours is Irish. I'm seeing yours as Asian (of course). Whereas ours has the clover, I think yours should have a Japanese character (kanji symbol) in strong calligraphy overlaid on a sword. The Character should be encircled with ... um ... a circle, like ours, and the words around the circle should say Nikon Samurai. I'm seeing it as a black or dark brown logo, or possibly black and red.

    Am I creative, or what?

    :-D


    Actually, with the two logos looking different but sharing the same basic structure, I envision it symbolizing our unity of spirit and purpose.

    Here's the Character:

    Hope this shows up right. (ps. I pulled it off a japanese forum so I hope it's right.)

    Re: OK Nikon Samuari's!

    that's a great logo liban. I was wondering if anyone and everyone could use it. I know i'm new here, but god do i love my nikon D70!!!!! I don't believe I'm a samuraii after only a month or so (well maybe a white belt with a starched whiter than white kimono straight out of the shop ) but would just like to show my allegiance in an understated way.

    regards
