Shutterbugs attend Nikon Club gathering


SOME 35 “Nikonians” attended the Nikon Club gathering organised by the Nikon Club Brunei in collaboration with Gemilang Photo Brunei Association and Nikon Club Malaysia yesterday morning at the Jubilee Park in the capital.

This was the 4th Nikon Club get-together in Brunei since its first gathering in 2010.One of the motives of the gathering was to enable Nikon users to share and exchange knowledge, information and opinion in relation to cameras and photography, such as places of interest, subjects and others.

The main purpose of the get-together is to create opportunity for participants and contributors to learn from each other.

The gathering started with a briefing by Brunei Nikon State Liason, Hanisham Salleh, followed by Alex Moh from Nikon Club Malaysia. The participants were then brought for a model photoshoot with a Muslimah theme, using the park’s resources to create a background for the models.

Nikon Club Brunei members who attended the get-together can submit their entrees to the Nikon Club website for judging. Three best pictures will receive a Nikon Coolpix S100 camera each. Seven consolation prize winners will each receive a limited edition thumbdrive and a Nikon Coolpix towel.

The Nikon Professional Services (NPS) would also like to announce that to render the best support for their professionals, NPS is pleased to inform that the NPS Service Depot will be set up at the International Convention Centre (ICC) from April 23-25 during the Asean Summit to serve accredited photographers with Nikon professional equipments.
