Arent all Nikons available in the USA imported? I assume they are all made in China. The only reason to avoid non-USA cameras in the US is

1: the Warranty

2: the movies wont work with your crap NTSC standard

Its exactly the same reason we in the UK avoid US cameras like the plague

Dear Murray, I take your advice and get the Genuine Fractal software.

But I have Photoshop 7,0 only, Does it work on this?

Also, if it does... Where should I find it? Or put it, cauze I have tried every folders on Plugins and I can´t see it anywhere in Photoshop

Of course, Nikons lenses are made all over the place, including China, Japan and Thailand.

However, when we are talking about US Warranty, what that means is that there is a 5 year warranty covered by Nikon, USA, meaning you mail it locally.
If you buy an imported lens (much cheaper), than you cannot mail to Nikon, USA for warranty work. However, I am told, that BHPhoto, which sells both the USA Model with 5 year warranty, and the imported model with a 1 year warranty, honors the imported warranty in house (which is not Nikon factory). I do not see any point in buying an imported model for a saving of a few dollars.

Also you should exercise extreme caution when ordering from mail order, as many of them selling at very low prices are non usa models (both bodies and lenses). Make sure that you are getting a usa model, unless of course, you are foreign based.

I doubt the D50 takes movies so a discussion of the PAL vs NTSC is kind of pointless. However, the point and shoot Nikon 5200 that I gave my wife does and I think it can be set for either standard. Remember that the NTSC is far older as standards go then PAL and also it is now being replaced in the US by HDTV which I doubt will give you the same carping ability.

I shoot D100's and will soon be selling both to move to the D200. I think I'd like to have a go at Canon but have way too much tied up in Nikon lenses and stuff.

As a senior Nikon fellow told me about a year ago, "one week Nikon is the best and the next, Canon is.". So I doubt you could screw up in your choice and having a camera makes it oh so much easier to take a picture. [wish I knew who said that first and the actual quote]

Actually - my point was that ALL cameras available in the US will be so called "imported junk".

It was the xenophobia of "imported junk" that provoked the smartarsed comment about NTSC

As far as chosing cameras is concerned, try to hire the cameras for a week (a good specialist shops should let you if they know you are buying.) It's the relationship between the photographer's eyes, brain and camera which is most important in getting a good shot.
