On Tuesday, March 30, Nikon will launch two new websites (English), "D-Movie" Site and "GP-1" Site , with the goal of promoting understanding of Nikon digital-SLR camera functions and further increasing user enjoyment of Nikon cameras and photography.
"D-Movie" Site will offer information related to the D-Movie movie recording function built into Nikon digital-SLR cameras. The Nikon D90, released in September 2008, was the world's first* digital-SLR camera equipped with a movie recording function. The site will focus primarily on video contents that introduce a variety of scenes showing the many ways in which movie recording utilizing the distinctive features of digital-SLR camera interchangeable lenses, including wide-angle, telephoto and fisheye characteristics, can increase the enjoyment of this camera function with excellent background blur.

GP-1 Site will offer information related to the dedicated Nikon digital-SLR camera accessory, the GPS Unit GP-1, which records position latitude, longitude and altitude, as well as shooting date and time with images as they are captured. The site will introduce the convenience of using information recorded with the GPS function when viewing, organizing and saving images. With a rich lineup of interchangeable NIKKOR lenses and a variety of dedicated accessories, Nikon digital-SLR cameras and the Total Imaging System increase the ways in which users enjoy their Nikon products and photography.
By continuing to offer information related to the use of distinctive Nikon digital-SLR camera functions and accessories, Nikon will propose new photography methods and techniques that may be applied to our digital-SLR cameras.
