VIDEO: Surfing champ Stephanie Gilmore becomes the face of Nikon in Australia

Nikon also announces a three-year partnership with Surfing Australia

Stephanie Gilmore will be part of a locally-produced Nikon campaign that forms part of the camera company's 'I AM' global marketing strategy. This announcement follows a three-year deal done between Nikon and Surfing Australia, which will see Nikon become Surfing Australia's official camera and also its naming sponsor for the Surf Photo of the Year and Surf Movie of the Year awards.

The partnership is a natural one according to Surfing Australia CEO, Andrew Stark: "Surfing and photography go hand in hand as both are about capturing that one beautiful moment that you can't recreate. We're delighted to partner with Nikon. We have found Nikon product to be pretty unbeatable and we've all put it through its paces, so we really believe in the Nikon brand which is why we chose Nikon as our camera partner".

At the launch in Bondi today, Stephanie also showed off some her photos, which she has taken with the ruggedised Nikon Coolpix AW100. The main draw card of this camera: it's waterproof!

Incidentally, we shot the video using the Nikon 1 V1 with the 10-30mm lens.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
