Kicking off with “Love Letters from the N Line,” Nikon’s Newest Campaign Celebrates the Things We Love About New York City Through Amazing Images and Invites Others to Share the Love Using #NikonLoveNY
 
NEW YORK, NY – Today, Nikon Inc. unveiled its new “Love Letters” campaign which features open letters to the residents of New York City, highlighting some of the reasons why we love New York and inspiring people to share their love for the city that never sleeps. Evoking the traditional concept of the love letter but on a grander scale, the campaign will feature a variety of stunning images and curated love notes that highlight the city’s diversity, showcase its exhilarating energy and celebrate the sights and sounds that are distinctly New York City. The campaign creative includes vibrant images, taken with Nikon cameras, that truly capture the city and those that call it home in incredible image quality, vivid colors and stunning detail that Nikon cameras and NIKKOR lenses are known for. Nikon’s “Love Letters” will also encourage New Yorkers to share their own beautiful images and affection for their city through social media, using #NikonLoveNY. Participants’ images dedicated website: www.NikonLoveNY.com.
 
“Whether it’s a secret spot for the best slice, the way the dusk light hits an iconic landmark or a favorite park bench with the perfect view, the things we love most about our cities deserve to be captured with a quality that reflects the pride and personal connection we have to these places,” said Lisa Baxt, Associate General Manager of Communications, Nikon Inc. “Through these Love Letters we hope to encourage consumers to pick up a camera and share the love they have for their city through stunning imagery. We are excited to kick off the campaign in New York, and see New Yorkers’ perspectives of all of the extraordinary things that make the city they love so special.”
 
Launching this Spring, the campaign will feature Nikon’s love letters at some of the most notable places along the N Line through billboards, posters and other out of home displays. Images layered with short love letters will be revealed in key locations in and around the transit line throughout the city, including Times Square, Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn and Astoria, Queens, offering commuters visually dynamic messages as captured by Nikon cameras and NIKKOR lenses.
 
Consumers and campaign participants will also have an opportunity to see the campaign come to life across digital media and mobile platforms. As New York is waking up from the cold, dark winter months, it is a perfect time to get out and capture the vibrant nature of the city. Over the next two months, Nikon will encourage New Yorkers to capture what they love most about the Big Apple and share their personal love letters with the world, tagging #NikonLoveNY.
 
Travelling through three boroughs, New York City’s beloved “N Line” is the ideal canvas to showcase what makes New York City so exceptional. The line carries more than nine million passengers each month and runs through a diverse and rich cultural and architectural landscape stretching over a 45-station path and running through four of the 10 busiest subway stations in New York City, including stops at Times Square, Union Square, Atlantic Avenue and Coney Island. Already clad in Nikon’s recognizable yellow and black, the N Line will serve as a conduit for Nikon’s “Love Letters” campaign, which provides a picture of New York that’s not often told, featuring some of the intimate details that make living in New York so personal and special.
 
This campaign builds upon the company’s “Show Your Love Some Love” campaign, launched in March 2016, which empowered passionate people to create better memories with images that do their “loves” justice. The “Love Letters” campaign was created and executed by Nikon’s agency partners, Cramer-Krasselt and MWWPR.
 
To see all of Nikon’s Love Letters and notes from other New Yorkers, please be sure to visit www.NikonLoveNY.com throughout the campaign.

Introduced in 1976 and discontinued in 1998, the Nikon 13mm f/5.6 is often dubbed "The Holy Grail" because of its ultra-wide angle of view with minimal distortion. It was only available via special order during its production run making it one of Nikon's rarest lenses.
 
However, eBay (via UniquePhoto – 100% Positive Feedback) has a Nikon 13mm f/5.6 AI-S Lens available for $24,999.99 with free shipping.
 
Yes, you read that right – shipping is FREE!
 
The serial number of this particular lens translates to a production year after 1982.

This was a situation where a fast frame rate was extremely helpful for wildlife photography. While I had intended to use a Canon EOS 5Ds R as my primary camera for this trip, the 5 fps frame rate quickly proved too slow for the fast-moving fawns. Switching to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II immediately solved the frame rate problem and significantly increased the ideal body position captures. However, I remained challenged to keep the adorable little animals in the viewfinder.
 
Another challenge presented by the fast-moving fawns was anticipating where they were going to be before they got there. The fawns would sometimes run right up to me in curious fashion, and then turn around and run far away in next moment. I used the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens almost exclusively on this several-day trip. Having the zoom lens meant that I could (mostly) frame the fawns as desired and often I included the mother and/or siblings in the same frame. I had the built-in extender switched into the optical path for this capture.
 
Another reason that a zoom lens is a great option for this location is that Big Meadows has many line of sight obstructions. This makes it difficult to get a clear view of the subject and getting closer is sometimes what is needed to avoid such.
 
I wasn't totally happy with this image due to the fact the fawn was leaping just slightly away from me – I usually prefer an approaching position. But, my daughter walked by as I was selecting one of the fawn pictures to share and was immediately drawn to this one. While the late-day sunlight was ideally-warm, what she loved was that namesake tail raised and an approaching angle would not do that part justice. Sometimes it takes another set of eyes to see things in a different way.
