Nice idea but a Hahnel ProCube 2 does the job for most camera batteries/AAs and anything that needs USB power.

Plus, it's a lot more cubey and a lot less bread-boardy.

Tamed Monkey: I've used Silver Efex Pro right from the beginning. I sometimes feel as though I'd be in big trouble without it.
Although some of the presets that come with it are fantastic, I've made all of my own that I now use for different applications.
The only gripes I have about it is
a) If you don't continually update when every new 'upgrade' appears, you'll get pop-ups every single day asking you if you want to, and
b) After all these years, I still can't figure out how to integrate it into Capture 1 as a plugin/style.

In C1, you might want to try creating an Export recipe and specifying 'Open with' as the application you want, like Silver Efex. Much quicker and slicker than right-click 'Open with' IMHO, because the Nik apps never appear in the list, you always have to go looking for them...

But this is very good news as CaNikon now really have to make progress to join the mirrorless market and start taking it seriously.

The invitation from Sony to be able to join is ridiculous. Everybody can join the NPS/CPS program as long as they meet the requirements on lenses and bodies.

@yslee1

So, if I have a business customer who buy some images from me for their company brochure, and a private individual who spends the same for a shoot and some prints for their walls at home, then I should treat them differently i.e. I should encourage the business customer to use me again but not the private individual?

@Samuel:

No, IMHO it's a mistake. It doesn't matter whether your customers are spending disposable income (amateur) or investing because it's a cost of being in business (pros), this is about building brand loyalty and you typically don't do that by alienating a segment of your high-spending customers (the high-spending enthusiasts).

Of course Canikon pro support isn't free either, it just feels that way, because we have no idea how much of the price we pay goes to fund this.
