An amateur feature Nikon has taken away from the D3P to help professional journalists is the old tripod socket.
Old timers remember these from the days of film, but occasionally they can cause problems crossing international borders.
Tripod sockets can collect dirt or even bugs, which causes real problems with agricultural inspections. As we who travel know, transporting soil or anything alive across borders freaks out customs officials for the potential to transport plant and animal diseases.
Yes, it sounds stupid, but this has caused delays for journalists when they've met up with cranky border officials, and no one uses the tripod socket on the D3 anyway. Remember, the D3P is for professional newsmen on the front lines of history, not part-timers shooting portraits in the park.


Hmm. So there is more dirt in the tripod socket than there is on his boots?

There are circumstances that professional PJs use tripods. Those that might have multiple cameras at a press station, for instance.

The sooner the internet understands that much of Ken Rockwell's articles are satirical, the better.

I'm not sure even Ken Rockwell knows when that is.

I'm not talking about just that April 1 article, but of many things Rockwell has written over the years.
