Nikon had 32 men and 0 women test its new camera
The Japanese camera maker is under fire for hosting an advertising event that featured
32 professional photographers testing its new D850 camera.
One problem: All 32 photographers were men.
The absence of women was first spotted by photography blog Fstoppers.com, which sarcastically
asked whether the camera was designed specifically for men.
A fierce backlash followed on social media.
“Hey Nikon: are you planning to release a version of the D850 for women? A pink one, maybe?”
Juan Carlos Munoz, an amateur photographer, asked on Twitter.
Photojournalist Leah Voss also voiced her disappointment: “As a lifelong @NikonUSA shooter,
this profile on 32 all male photographers is pretty disheartening.”
