Blurb Book, Nikon Lens Repair

The Blurb book I ordered last week arrived today, and I absolutely love it.

The front / back book wrap is printed on thick, glossy paper, just like you find in the store.

I chose the heavy paper option, again on par with any "coffee table" book, but still thinner than photo paper. The pages are bound together, not glued, a nice upgrade.

The full bleed spreads are very impressive and I wish I had incorporated more of them in the book.

I will definitely use Blurb again. I have started to organize my photos from 2009 with the goal of getting them into a similar book.

And I received another photography goodie today - my 70-300mm lens, back from the Nikon Service Center. I had dropped it back in December and the Auto-focus stopped working. I waited until two weeks ago to send it in. It was still covered under warranty, so Nikon fixed it free of charge. One good reason to buy NikonUSA products (vs gray market equipment). And I had lost my original receipt from B&H Photo, but I wrote to them and they sent me a copy of my purchase receipt. One of many good reasons to buy from B&H!

Working Again

I immediately tried out the lens on my neighbor's porch flowers. Works great again!

Next time I have an issue with my equipment, I won't wait 6+ months to send it in for repair. Most NikonUSA lenses are covered for 5 years.

That is GORGEOUS Shirley! I really should do something like that. Hmm. Maybe for my 365 project?

Glad you've got your lens back in working order! That was FAST!

And your photo is beautiful! I love petunias.

Nice to see you got your lens back so quickly. Love the layout of the book, I'll have to try one of those some day!

Your book looks INCREDIBLE! I had bookmarked the Blurb site, but have yet give it any more thought than that.
Your book has now inspired me...!

What a great book! I tried the blurb software once and it was really hard, maybe I'll try again. I'm glad to hear about the lens. I think I'll try sending in the one that I purchased and dropped. I bought another one but I maybe able to salvage this one and have two. What a great lens by the way, I love it.

Hey thanks for showing the blurb book. I'm always looking at using their service but still haven't tried it yet. The books looks great though. :)
