Nikon set to launch new image sharing site 

 

It was recently announced that on January 28th the camera giants will be launching a new image sharing and storing website titled Nikon Image Space. It will provide users with 2GB of free storage, further social networking integration, improved cababilities and usage, and an easy-to-use interface. Also, if you have a my Picturetown account, it will be automatically transferred over to the new Image Space platform.

 Please find the Image Space interface, followed by Nikon's press release, below:

TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the January 28 launch of "NIKON IMAGE SPACE ", a new image sharing and storage space.

"NIKON IMAGE SPACE" is a free online service for sharing images open not only to users of Nikon digital cameras, but anyone who enjoys taking photos or recording movies.

This service makes it easy for camera enthusiasts to upload, view, organize, and share their photos and movies of once-in-a-lifetime moments with greater convenience through sequential operation, which is achieved by high speed operation of the system, an intuitive user interface (UI), a clear window layout, and a simple operation flow.

Nikon has offered its image sharing and storage service, my Picturetown, since August 2007. my Picturetown has been used by a great many people in the world either for free of charge or for a fee with some special privileges. However, with a complete overhaul of the service, we are taking this opportunity to change the name from my Picturetown to "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" (my Picturetown user account information and images will be automatically transferred to "NIKON IMAGE SPACE").

"NIKON IMAGE SERVICE": http://nikonimagespace.com (The site will be available on January 28, 2013 at 20:00 Japan time).

Further information on "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" will be presented at the Nikon Imaging Japan booth at the CP+ 2013 camera and photo imaging show to be held January 31–February 3, 2013 at the Pacifico Yokohama (Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan).

Special accounts also offer more advanced functions, including the ability to apply a password when sharing images, and a function that restricts image download.

  2. Improved usabilitySignificant changes in window design make sequential image operations, from upload to viewing to organizing to sharing, smoother. In addition, a relaxing background color has been adopted for a more pleasing image display, and image layout has been adjusted for ease of use.

New Nikon Coolpix breaks ground with Google's Android OS

Nikon recently announced the Wi-Fi-enabled 16-megapixel Coolpix S800c basic camera—the first camera on the market that runs Google's Android operating system (version 2.3). 

Nikon has made a momentous technological stride by implementing the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system in their newest version of the Coolpix camera. The S800c comes equipped with standard features you'd find in a viable point-and-shoota 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, a Nikon Expeed C2 processing engine, and a 10x f3.2-5.8 25-250mm lens with optical image stabilization—but with the addition of Android's OS, downloadable apps, Wi-fi, and a 3.5-inch, 819K-dot OLED touch screen. BOOM. Photojournalists, you're welcome.
