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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
