Come on, Nikon

June 09, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

A reader has just pointed out that my Expanded Guide to the Nikon D7000 lists the SB-800 Speedlight even though it was discontinued a while back. Am I embarrassed? Not really. The people who should be embarrassed are Nikon themselves, or at least Nikon UK. This morning (10/6/2011) I checked their website again, as I do when preparing each book, and the SB-800 is still listed in all its glory. Yes, this could change, now I've flagged it up but it's there today and I have a screenshot to prove it.

In fact the page even describes it as "New Speedlight SB-800". To the best of my knowledge it was introduced in 2003. New? I don't think so.

Come on, Nikon. If we can't rely on a manufacturer's official website to be up to date on which products are current, what are we supposed to do?
