Why can't Nikon's BTS product videos be more like this? (Just sayin'.)

Very funny. I feel like buying that small softbox after seeing this.

If Nikon would just put a fraction of this effort into explaining Focus Tracking with Lock-on...

Three of your past four posts have involved space or spacesuits. Just saying.

Hmmmm, must try that fart cloud acid combination, very interesting.

Dear Boss
In case you're spying, that was a joke remark.

That was a great laugh! Brightened up my Monday. Not sure if having to show up hours before a shoot using only a couple of speedlights is a good selling point for speedy setup of the product :) but I suspect it would take that long to make an Oscar winning video like that about the shot.

Possibly the BEST BTS vid I have ever seen. These sort of things that poke fun at the "This is very serious" crowd are fantastic. Well done Dave Honl and thanks for posting it David :-)
