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.

Nice. The bag looks like a mesh coat d'arms. The glass mug also looks very nice. Congratulations. Could I bother you with filing a profile? Thanks and ........ Have a great time JRP My profile Previous photography stuff, before Nikonians: A Brief Love Story
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. Keith D. Smith
