Why Use Nikon?

The result:

Nikon D3 testing its weather seals

When people ask why I have always used Nikon I often tell them “because they are bomb-proof!” Maybe not bomb-proof but my camera’s often get a thorough workout and it’s good to know they are well sealed. The weather seals have always been a huge selling point for me. My camera’s have seen a lot worse than this – but this is a wee example of why the Nikon tech guru’s moan when I drop by with a ‘simple clean-up’ job. But sometimes it is just worth the risk for the photo.


About inciteimages

A magazine recently profiled my life and pretty much hit the nail on the head: Australian adventure photographer (and occasional journalist) Mark Watson is a liar. He suggests his job is “not so glamorous,” but drop him an email and his ‘out of office auto response’ will inform he’s heli-skiing New Zealand or trekking Patagonia. In downtime he surfs and mountain bikes Sydney’s Northern Beaches or can be spied drinking café latte’s on the beachfront when he should be editing photos. He’s a Nikon Ambassador and Red Bull Australia’s No.1 photographer, and after a few Corona’s, admits, “I photograph cool people, in cool places, doing cool things!” Quickly followed by the disclaimer “It’s not always exciting…” But always said with a mischievous grin.
