I had a hunch that it hadn't been missed by this forum, but looking for it I could not find anything... Been to busy at work to see this tidbit, really scary that a big company like that makes a mistake like that :S

Scary?  I found it hilarious. D_Rochat's picture on that thread just added to the overall effect

Yea, what a blunder. The update from TSO Photography, whose footage had been reproduced in the promo:
Quote
I want to thank Kimito Uemura & Nikon for taking swift action, and resolving this issue quickly. They have taken every step to have the video removed, and will do everything possible to avoid this from happening again in the future. This matter is now fully resolved between the two of us.

The difference being that is Dan Chung (an photographer from the Guardian, who uses Nikon, but bought a 5DII to shoot video). Not an official Canon (or Nikon, for that matter).

But, he was a Nikon user, which means that he chose something far better, but didn't have the cash to get everything else that goes with it.  ;D

This reminds of those "I'm a PC" commercials from Microsoft that were made to counter Apple's "I'm a Mac" commercials back in 2008.

Microsoft's commercials were created with a Mac. Fail.

you're right. nobody is going to buy it now because the guy they hired used canon and clearly that makes the d800 no good.

so when canon hires an ad agency and they shoot with purpose build video cameras made by sony, that means canon is no good?

It's not that, it's a combination of the footage implying it was taken by the D800, and also the possible copyright infringement:

TSO Photography (who did some of the shots from that clip):
"A bit surprised to see Nikon using some of my video clips in the world launch of the Nikon D800 camera in Bangkok on the 7th without contacting me. Especially since Canon is one of my sponsors, and I use a 5DII."

As a follow up from TSO Photography:

"I want to thank Kimito Uemura & Nikon for taking swift action, and resolving this issue quickly. They have taken every step to have the video removed, and will do everything possible to avoid this from happening again in the future. This matter is now fully resolved between the two of us."

You miss the point!!  Nikon showed the video as though it came from their camera, it was fraudelent.

I don't read Norwegian, but apparently Nikon has offered payment plus an official apology as compensation for stealing his work...

Would be interesting to note if his contract with Canon will allow him to accept payments from Nikon...

There is a difference between accepting payment for services and accepting compensation for damages...

What damages? There was no damage done, all Nikon can do now is offer payment for use of his images...
