Nikon Patents The Most Genius Photography Gear Protection Method Ever

Nikon-password-protection-patent

According to a recent report on Nikon Rumors, camera company Nikon recently put in a patent to protect against theft. It involves passcodes and a combination needs to be entered into the camera before you can unlock the lens/camera duo to protect it from use–which means that thieves will either have to learn how to hack it or gain access to the passcode.

We wonder just how far this will go though as it may also just sometimes stop a photojournalist from getting a shot quicker if they need to unlock it all the time. But as the admin states, we’re amazed that no one did this sooner–and it seems very Apple-esque in the idea.
