Jan. 2012 DPR review of Nikon 1 J1:"[...]we can't help feeling that with the J1 and V1 Nikon has missed an opportunity to offer a product that fulfills that other great un-met point-and-shoot need: a small automatic camera that works well in a wide range of lighting conditions, from bright exterior to dim interior. [...] Also, although we try not to be influenced by a retail price when writing our reviews, it's impossible to ignore the fact that at street prices of around $600 and $800, respectively (with 10-30mm lens kit), the J1 and V1 are entry-level mirrorless cameras that cost significantly more than several higher-end alternatives. Got a 67% overall score.
Informative, perhaps. But how can one understand the above, more so when the 1 System (same sensor size, first to use it) has an extra advantage: interchangeable lenses? Nothing against Sony, which is a great product. I'd just like to understand the meaning of 'unbiased'.
The cat is right: these things are good for chewing...
Ryan21: I love the Genesis 200/400 kits. I have used them for a wide variety of things without fail... I highly recommend them!
Geez, 43 comments and only one about the Profoto - or its price...The fact is that they're the best lighting acquisition I've made. Far better made than others (great design & ergonomy, too) reliable, consistent results, everything a Pro needs to set up a studio anywhere, in or outdoors, together with the BatPac.
