    You know those annoying guys who always try to take pictures of you when you go to a theme park? In the past they were using simple canon p&s. I was at 6 Flags Magic Mountain yesterday and they all had Nikon D50's with a flash and battery grip. I couldn't tell what lens' they were using or flash model since I'm a canon guy but I was surprised in the sudden jump of camera quality. They went from giving their employees $200 worth of stuff to suddenly probably around $1000 at least.

    I'm also wondering if these guys actually know how to use their stuff or if it just in idiot box mode....

    i'm sure they got a deal from Nikon, could be like a produce placement ad in movies, Nikon maybe paying Six Flags to use them

    I think everywhere I have gone recently including Disney and an underwater cave in Mexico use Nikon Dslr's for their guest pictures.
