YOUR NEXT NIKON, STRIKES AGAIN!

Super Awesome Equipment Loaner Program (and it’s free!)
 

Great news everyone! We have partnered with Nikon again to bring you another equipment loaner program! Now you can try some of Nikon’s latest and greatest digital cameras and lenses for a 5-day period during the month of November and December. What does this mean? It means for 5 days, you get to test (play with) Nikon gear on your own time and on your own turf. We’ve got FX and DX format D-SLRs, the flagship 1 series mirrorless digital camera, prime lenses, zoom lenses, and lenses designed specifically for the 1 series. See how these cameras and lenses will fit into your daily life, and within your photography style. You will be amazed at how Nikon products can unleash your inner-creator. (And, if you’re interested, we also have a separate Nikon DSLR Video Contest running — click here for the details).

Here’s how Your Next Nikon works:
 

  1. Browse our available loaner products below.
  2. Choose one camera and/or your top two lens choices that you would like to try, as well as a pick-up date from the listed “available dates” for each item.
  3. Email us at YourNextNikon@gmail.com and let us know your selected gear and pick-up date. We cannot guarantee a reservation as this is a first-to-email-first-served program. So, please look for a reservation confirmation email from us that will let you know whether or not you were the first to make your requested date for the items you want to try.
  4. Simply show up at Looking Glass Photo to pick-up your reserved gear on your confirmed date. Note: We will have an “Agreement” for you to sign (much like our rentals agreement) and need a credit card or cash for a $500 completely refundable deposit. The agreement you will sign confirms that you will share some of your favorite digital images for promotional purposes (i.e., promotion of this loaner program and Nikon products on Looking Glass social media channels, web site and email newsletter. You will, of course, receive credit for your images. And that you agree to answer a short survey about your experience with the Nikon product(s)).
  5. When your 5-day loaner period is done, you simply return the gear to us in the same condition in which you received it. 5-day loaner periods start on Wednesdays, with a return date of no later than the following Monday.
