A Peek Inside Nikon’s Gear Room at the Rio Olympics

Comment

We’ve shown you Getty’s Olympic stockpiles and Canon’s massive gear room, it’s only right you get a peek inside Nikon’s operation as well. These photos by Photo News photographer Vincent Kalut show, yet again, the amount of gear these companies have to haul to massive sporting events like this.

Just like Canon and Getty, Nikon Professional Services (NPS) is there to make sure that all of their shooters are prepared to capture the action no matter what happens. With plenty of spare gear and trained repair technicians on-site, no Nikon shooter should find themselves SOL if their new D5 craps out… it seems Nikon brought a cargo plane load worth of spares.
