    I see at least six things that might be considered out of place...;)

    And, there are two Powerbooks/MBPs in the picture!

    Heh. Last winter olympics there was a camera pit completely decked out in Nikon banners. . . all yellow. . . which was completely filled with Canon shooters.

    I felt a little weird sitting at Fenway Park with a 300mm lens strapped on...:p

    I gave my camera (with neck strap) to a friend who wanted to play around. She took this shot as a joke, but it had far more meaning than she ever could have realized!

    LOL.
    It makes you wonder why Canon doesn't outbid them for the advertising rights

    Is one of them that lady in blue;)

    Why would Nikon advertise there? I mean, sure, it may convince a few people that everyone in there is using a Nikon... But why would that convince people that a P&S would be just as effective as those professional level?

    Nikon ads are ALL over the stadium. A guy walks around with a D50 and takes photos of everyone who asks, then hands them a slip of paper that shows where they can view the shots on redsox.com (eventually takes you here.) Kinda neat!

    Nothing against Nikon at all here, I'm just saying it's a funny shot.

    That actually is a pretty cool idea!

    And I'm not saying they're bad, I just feel they could use their advertising money better... But maybe that's why they're paid to do what they do and I'm paying to be educated.:confused:

    According to the industry insider, Canon has such a strong brand and market position that it just sets up the camera market and the rest of the camera makers just follow Canon to keep up with the market. I know this is a generalized take at this but I think there is a truth to that. I think Canon does not have to out-bit Nikon on that ad spot as it is very apparent by looking at that picture.
