Elmo killed the Nikon J1
Sep 22, 2011

The Elmo shot is the perfect example of why not to buy this camera, no depth of field.

I sold my Canon SX120 and bought a m4/3 because I was tired of taking pictures like that.

With at least minimal background blurring very simple compositions like this become much more interesting to look at.

What we have here is a picture of Elmo and a picture of the green electrical boxes. I don't want to see detail in the green electrical boxes. I'm not asking that Nikon design a full frame portable that obliterates the boxes, I just want them blurred more than they are in that shot.

I and others are not going to buy Nikon mirrorless if it can't perform this simple photographic effect.
