  • I've done a simple leatherette grip on a J1. Basically a right-angle triangle shape on the one side for the fingers to touch rather than a full across-the-whole-front retro look. It did add that ...
  • If you're okay with image auto-review, get a cheap used V1 and the lenses you want. Save up for a price-dropped V3, or eventually a price-dropped V4, V5, etc., then sell the V1 or keep it as a ...
  • Steve Huff did an image comparison between the V3 and the J1, and the V3 images had a hazy look to them. Have a look over at his website and see if it's similar to what you experienced.
  • Best thing to do if you plan on shooting video in auto is to set it to shutter priority with auto ISO, 1/60 shutter for 30p or 1/120 for 60p or 60i. The camera will adjust aperture and ISO ...
  • Replied in 4K J5
    I can only imagine how great it would be to shoot 4K with the 6.7-13mm. Please Nikon, release this before my trip in August.
  • Replied in 4K J5
    I hope Nikon goes back to SD cards too. Olympus is improving their video capabilities and if Nikon doesn't offer 4K they should at least try to improve their 1080p, starting with higher bitrates ...
  • Replied in More red...
    Keep 'em comin'.
  • Thanks detritus for having a look. I'm just gonna treat the lens as a 13-27.5mm whilst using the filter. A shame.
  • Replichrome packs are currently 40% off if anyone is interested.
  • Replied in ND Filters
    Variable is handy for quick adjustments when shooting video. Turning the filter too much can result in a huge 'X' across the frame. They don't seem to work well for ultra-wides either. I'd rather ...
  • I'll have to check when I get home. It's a Hoya. It was on sale for $40 +14% tax. Prices for photo accessories are always higher in Canada and buying from the U.S. is out of the question. Our ...
  • 40.5mm on both the 11-27.5 and 10mm.
  • Created discussions Using filters on AW1
    I bought a circular polarizer for the AW 11-27.5 but it vignettes at its widest. Can't use a step up ring because the thread is recessed enough that the ring can't reach it. I know Hoya offers a ...
  • No problem. I started looking at film emulations after purchasing a Ricoh GR. The in-camera positive film and black and white presets made me want to create similar ACR presets for my N1 cameras. ...
  • Download the samples from Totally Rad - Replichrome. After trying it out I want to purchase one of their packs. Just waiting for a promo code.
  • Have a look at Fujifilm. A Fuji XT1 kit would be my choice for stills only. Video quality is important to me and Nikon 1 is the better all-rounder. It's also smaller and lighter for travel. We ...
  • It has everything to do with filming techniques, subject matter and post editing. If it can be done with an LX7, it can be done with a J1. The LX7 probably has sharper video and has the option of ...
  • I only get the warning if a battery is swapped, not each time the camera is turned on (like it used to). The door could be wide open and no message will show.
  • At lensrentals.com you can rent the AW lenses but no longer the AW1. They state it's because of the high failure rate with the camera. Clearly there is a fault and Nikon is not taking responsibility.
  • The battery or port door, which Nikon designed to be water-sealed for the AW1. How can they say it's not a fault of the camera? Sorry to hear about your lemon. I hope you had a great time in Cuba ...
