We Took the Nikon Z 6 to San Diego Comic Con 2019

San Diego Comic-Con is the most anticipated pop culture event of the year. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Comic-Con has evolved from a small gathering of local comic book fans to a global entertainment phenomenon. Being one of the hottest tickets in the world, fans go to great lengths to not only secure an attendee badge; but, for some, also travel great distances and brave the very crowded Gaslamp District - all just to get a glimpse at some of the biggest names in moves and television. Over the course of five days, Downtown San Diego is transformed from a major, yet quiet coastal city to a place where all fandoms are welcome. And, local businesses are more than happy to welcome the massive influx of out-of-towners. According to Visit San Diego: "The 50th annual Comic-Con is here and the event is expected to bring an estimated 135,000 attendees into the San Diego Convention Center... Comic-Con attracts attendees from over 80 countries and more than 2,500 media personnel from over 30 countries, putting San Diego at the center of an international spotlight. Comic-Con guests are expected to generate an estimated $149 million in regional impact to San Diego, with a direct attendee spend of $88 million." This year, we got the chance to explore the Comic-Con floor. Knowing that the crowds were going to be heavy and that we were going to spend a lot of time on our feet, we brought along the light and powerful Nikon Z 6. There's so much to see at San Diego Comic-Con. Here's is just a sample of everything we captured on closing day.
