  • Live in Pittsburgh for two years in late 70s. Excellent photos!
  • My grandson at nephew's wedding, Quinn Mor.
  • Congratulation on the baby & new camera!
  • Created discussion thread Lens accident
    Do not be so rushed that you forget to zip your camera bag. Very late, grabbed bag with no thought of closing it and kit lens, 10-30mm, fell to pavement. Picked up and seemed okay, no rattle nor ...
  • Replied in High ISO
    True the lens are different. I assume the 80-400 is faster focusing then the 70-300. Have never even seen or handle this second lens. I don't like the dof of either lens, but the cx lens would be ...
  • Replied in High ISO
    Jonikon - Renting is out of the question, way to high for a day's shoot, especially since I don't get paid for any of it. I'm quickly realizing that my days of quality photography are over, just ...
  • Created discussion thread High ISO
    Use right gear for the job, so I used my friends D810 and 80-400mm lens. Low light venue for a regional fencing tournament, so I pushed the ISO to 5000, fine jpeg. A Nikon 1 V3 and 70-300mm ...
  • When I traveled to the Amazon in 2008 I took with me big DSLR gear and I feared for my life. My son who was with me said not to let my camera hang from my shoulder for when on the crowded bus it ...
  • This is the last N1 equipment I bought and had to pay full price, worth every cent! The slow aperture doesn't bother me for one can hand hold it so low. I've thought of a different system but this ...
  • Only camera I use is the V1 along with 6.7-13, 10-30, 30-110 lenses. Still have D200 but don't use it at all. Waiting to see if there will be V4. Would like faster lenses, system priced cheaper. ...
  • I don't think the new technology is better making photos better, makes somethings easier. What is troublesome to me is that it enables the average person able to make better photos (good for ...
  • There is no way I'd get a camera that doesn't have EVF. I have yet to find a single camera that one can use at high noon bright sunny day. Even when it is dark enough for the screen I have a hard ...
  • Thanks all for your comments. I never had this problem when shooting DSLR but I'm using 70-200 f2.8 lens. And very true, using a short lens such as the 18mm for fencing or anything else except ...
  • I totally concur with CL. Even in good light I've had the AF be not fast enough. Tried my V1 & 30-100 lens for a hockey game. Have to shoot at 1600=3200 because of the 5.6. I don't mind the noise, ...
  • I keep PS CS5 basically only to use the clone tool which I like much better then Lightroom. I love LR, I currently use only 4.4, I find it easier then PS, with a major plus of managing my vast ...
  • Thanks for comparison post. Only difference I see that still bugs me about the V1 system is the DOF, which you can't do anything about anyway. Not bad at all. Hopefully there will be a V4.
