  • Coincidentally, I spent a few minutes playing around with the trial version of DXO 9 this weekend.  I didn't have much time to devote, unfortunately, but I'm wondering if already I did something...
  • Well, that's the $1,200 question, ain't it?  ;-)
  • I'm with Miki and Paul on this issue. I'm glad to see evidence that Nikon is not completely abandoning the 1 system but I'm otherwise prepared to hang with my V1 and watch to see what happens with...
  • I hope you're right, desertcat, as I would prefer a built-in EVF.  However, many products have optional features built into even the base models and the 'dip switch' (or whatever is necessary to...
  • I think "doubling down", as you have put it, nunatak, may be an apt phrase.   Personally, my fingers are crossed that this lens will be available for sale in North America...and that the price is,...
  • Not to rain on the parade, but any fears that this lens and/or the also-rumoured V3 may be released in certain parts of the world only - for example, in areas were mirrorless sales are doing well,...

  • Replied in Update
    Perhaps I missed it, but I'm surprised that nobody has commented on the DF-style front dial, one of the most criticized features of the DF as far as ergonomics/ease of use goes.   As to the...

  • I will add something that I don't think has been raised previously, however it may be something that it is unique to me, or more correctly, a result of my INexperience with post-processing.   I,...
  • Replied in Concerned ...
    Personally, I think the OP is right to be concerned. Nikon has explicitly indicated it is re-thinking the 1 series which has led to much speculation as to what that might mean exactly. As some have...
  • Replied in Nikon 1 V1

  • Replied in Nikon 1 V1
    JL Salvignol wrote: Carl, to add an important parameter at all what was said: V1 RAW files and DXO Pro9 are in total synergy. Image quality that is obtained almost automatically is amazing. I...
  • I'll keep it brief since my usage is regular but limited - I use the basic edition of version 3 made free a few months ago. I use it exclusively for its black and while film emulations. I am a less...
  • Actually, I think it is Canon's decision to limit the M2 to certain markets which may be the more notable aspect of the M2 introduction.  As some have noted in other threads, Nikon 1 cameras,...
  • As odd as this may sound, regardless of brand/model, my next camera will have an exposure compensation dial on the top deck such as this 7800 hybrid/mock-up (as well as several other cameras).  If...
  • Well, you're welcome again.  Glad the review was useful to you.  I'm keeping a watchful eye on V2 prices as well.  Owning a V1, I'm somewhat conflicted by the V2 - I recognize and appreciate the...
  • Warren, not sure whether your "thank you" is for me or for the reviewer, but just in case it's for me, well, you're welcome but 'twas nothing.  The reviewer did all of the heavy lifting, heheheh....
  • Created discussions Offsite V2 review
    In case anyone is interested, this review was posted November 16, i.e., it is recent. A user review of the V2 with special emphasis on its video capabilities by a commercial photographer who uses...
  • A well-considered and well-written comment, DesertCat. I agree with everything you have so eloquently stated.
