Nikon Signs Sponsorship Deal With Flickr


In a natural move, Nikon, as part of its Stunning campaign - the one which recently featured Kate Moss - has entered into a deal with photo site Flickr whereby any picture taken with a Nikon camera and uploaded to Flicker will display a small Nikon log next to the information section on individual photo pages. Also, photos tagged "nikonstunninggallery" will be featured on Nikon's NikonStunningGallery website and a prominent link to Nikon's site is featured on Flickr's homepage. If ever there were an appropriate campain to appear on Flickr, this would be it.

An exactly how will flickr ascertain that a digital image came from a Nikon camera and not a Canon? Of course, trust.

Kathy, all that info is embedded in an image file so it can be grabbed by whatever offline program or online service displays the image.

Steve: I think that's Kathy's point. I could modify the EXIF data from a photo taken by my Canon PowerShot A95 to say it was a Nikon D2X... or vice versa, if I wanted to get rid of the stupid Nikon logo.

Heck, I think I might just go tag a few of my Canon-captured images "nikonstunninggallery"! :-D

Well that's true, kb, but how many people actually know how to do that? I don't. Maybe some people who are really into photography might but not your average person I would think.

Don't worry, Steve... I don't know *how* to do it either (and I'm an IT professional)... I just know that it *could* be done, and that all it would take is finding the right software. :-D
