"Nikon Mug Nikon gadget bag... what do you think ?"


Milwaukee, US
          

Hi fellow Nikonians,
just for intermezzo here... (do you have that word in English ?)

What do you think of the mug ? I got it (found it, actually ; some "idiot" left it on the table after a photography conference) spring '01 while I was working part time as an audio visual support guy at UW Madison (I AM still studying there, my senior year, Mechanical Engr.).
It was quite a lucky day, finding a "Nikon" mug while I was just starting to learn photography using my Nikon N70.

As for the gadget bag, don't critisize me on that. I know it's not built as good nor as well thought ( well designed ) as Tamrac, Domke, or LowePro, but a least it has "Nikon" written on it. Besides, it's quite cheap. I asked my brother to get me one last December, and send it to the US. I bought it for US$25 (250,000.00 rupiah, in Indonesia). All my gears ( F80, 80-200, speedlight and two other lenses ) do fit in there allright, and still leaving some room for a bit more gear.

"The bag looks like a mesh coat d'arms."
And that means ??
No, actually the outside material looks and feels exactly just like any other camera bag. That must've been the effect of using flash.

And about a profile, sure. Where should I write that ? Just here in this message threads, or any special place (message thread) on this forum ?

I should have said "Chain mail", this armor is made of interlocking metal rings (mesh). It is always worn with a layer of quilted fabric padding underneath to prevent painful chafing and to cushion the impact of blows (from axes and swords, for example). Several layers of mail are normally hung over vital areas. The links yield easily to blows, absorbing some of the shock. Most of the weight of this armor is carried on the shoulders and it is very uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. On top of it goes the full forged metal armor of the Middle Ages warriors.
Now as for a profile: on the top of the page at the Lobby, click on User, then click "Modify Profile", then click "Submit" and then add it, when done: click "Submit" again and that is that, ok?

Hmmm. Does coffee taste any better in a Nikon mug? As to the bag, I don't know about indonesia, but here in the US, most folks will tell you that it would probably be better if you bag said "Wal-Mart" as opposed to Nikon. Thieves hate Wal-Mart cameras.

About the coffee, the answer is no. In fact, I've never used it to drink anything.
About the Walmart thing, I guess you're right. sigh...
What if I add somekind of Walmart Tag ?
just kidding...

Actually, my own bag says "Domke." Even the thieves who specialize in cameras know that Domke cameras are really, really bad. Only rank amateurs use them.

Of course no one would steal a camera in a Wal-Mart bag . . . Wal-Mart sells Cannon products, not Nikon.
