After announcing the delay of DL-series, it appears that Nikon won’t be launching it at all. The company has decided to cancel all three cameras from the DL-series of premium compact cameras. As they announced, the reason is “concerns regarding their profitability.” It appears that several factors affect the production of this line, and despite the wait – the users won’t get to buy them after all.
A week or so ago, Resource magazine published a pretty in-depth article into what’s going on with F-Stop Gear. More specifically, their long overdue KitSentry Kickstarter project. Now, F-Stop Gear has announced an end to the project. F-Stop Gear also stated that they will not be reimbursing backers.
The KitSentry looked very promising. You have ID tags on your gear and a unit that keeps track of them in your bag. Then an app on your phone relays all the information to you. A great solution to stop you forgetting to take items on a shoot, or accidentally losing them during one. Many people thought so and backed the project. It easily beat its $18,000 goal pulling in just over $27,000.
