Nikon F5 launch – Stockholm

Nikon Europe arranged a product launch in  Stockholm, Sweden for the pro spec F5

We flew from London to Stockholm on BA 107 . I was in Seat 17D.

We stayed in the Grand Hotel which is a luxurious five star hotel right on the waterfront.

Part of the trip included a boat trip to one of the many Islands

We ended up in a nightclub in Stockholm…and that was the night of the legendary fiiish! We even got in Panorama trade magazine (see pic right)

Oh and the 36 frame test that Martyn and I did which gave Simon something to worry about as he considered what the Japanese might have been thinking about the UK press. We were simply proving a point. No matter how fast the camera was it couldn’t keep up with us pulling faces.

PMA 2000 – Las Vegas C2K

c2k_las_vegas

In the day Will Cheung and I decided to spend some time on the roulette tables in Las Vegas. We started at noon and were still there at 6pm…considerably worse off! I lost a lot and Will lost twice as much. A one time experience never to be repeated. We had arranged to go out with Claire Fleerackers from Kodak that evening.

We ended up at C2K night club. We had to wait in a queue while Courtney Cox was ushered in priority style…hadn’t they heard of Peter Bargh!

Out with
Peter Bargh (Emap), Claire Fleerackers (Kodak), Simon Coleman (Nikon), Will Cheung (Emap),
