I assuem you are referring to these: http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/os2012/article15239832.ab
Some are clearly marked "Usain Bolt" as photographer :)


Maybe it's me, but that looks like a Nikon (D4?) with a 14-24 in his hands...
+1, D4 with 14-28mm F2.8G ED

See, you carry the D4 as a prop to hand to the athelete, and hold on to the 1DX to take photos of him.  Both cameras are useful tools; the Nikon looks nice having its picture taken, while the Canon takes the nice picture! :-)

Cool!  Than I will still be able to get my 1DX at a "reasonable" price then!  LOL

I smell a big endorsement coming!  Expect canon prices to go up to pay for it.

Didn't they say NIKON?! LOL! Look at the pictures! ::) :P ;D

Don't jump on the bandwagon and pretend you know what NBC's coverage is like in the US

Please, by all means, jump on this bandwagon!  The coverage is horrible and should rightfully be called out for what it is.

And I concur, looks like 14-24 to me...

The coverage has been terrible, but should not be characterized by people outside the US who just read articles about it.  To say that the 200m final was not covered in the US is just ignorant (meant in the literal sense of the word - do not know).

He obviously had to settle for a Nikon camera, no 1D X owner is going to chance having to run down Bolt to get their camera back. Although if he had snagged a 1D X... The photographer chasing him would have given Bolt the closest race of his life.

The coverage has been just fine.  The time delay is messing them up since the 200m race was on at 10pm EST which was probably 7-12 hours after he actually ran it.

And it helps if you have MSNBC, CNBC, NBCSN, and regular NBC they are showing almost everything.


Were you able to take your DSLR into the event?

Canon should run an ad campaign to tout how the best use Canon! If Bolt uses Canon, you can bet a lot of impressionable folks will be lining up to buy 5DM3 and 1DX! Boy, I can't want to be a fly on the wall in one of the Canon marketing conference rooms.

I think you mean Nikon because that's what he's holding.

the pictures were quite amusing. one photographer just stood there with a smile and forgot to shoot (D: ) curious if he just smashed it in automatic mode, or the settings just happened to be right.

but it was a nikon... unfortunately :P
