  • 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.
  • Thanks for the info!, duh on my part. I always went past the sound settings for across to the right it was blank and i never opened the folder. Again thanks.
  • Created questions Turn off V1 beeper?
    I have tried to figure out how to turn off the beeper when one clicks the shutter button in mechanical or electronic, I am unable to figure it out, or perhaps one can't. There are times that being ...
  • The 80-200 f2.8 is a heavy lens, nice though, push/pull instead of two rings. Early models were manual and later AF. I once had the 70-200 f2.8 VR i and would recommend this for lesser cost then ...
  • Due to a very limited budget I've bought refurbished on the V1 + kit lens & 30-110 for the price of the long zoom lens new. I've had no problem! Just wish I could've found the 6.5-13 lens ...
  • I was sooo happy  when I could afford the 6.7-13mm, because for me 10mm is not wide enough. To me 10mm is my standard lens. The big bummer as I see it, is that I'd like a fixed 6.7. I don't need ...
  • I don't have a 32mm, but it's kinda short for basketball. I always used a 105mm 1. I found my V1 to be bad for any sports in good light or bad because of having to post each photo. Thought I could ...
  • The former postings were all right on. The number one factor for me is that it is light, the lenses are light and small. Important because anything bigger or heavier and I faint. My DSLR stuff ...
  • Spent the last two days shooting a lot of photos. Finally went to something that had potential. The 6.7-13mm lens is now my main lens. These shots are near dusk or after, all hand held for I hate ...
  • Replied in V1 & batteries
    Thanks Tord, it really does help!
  • Created user reviews Sweet super-wide lens
    This is now my #1 lens for the N1 system. It is built solid with very little distortion! Very sharp!! This lens is worth every cent. Only reason not five stars is variable aperture (I sooo dislike ...
  • Replied in Blah Blah Blah
    Very nice variety of photos and moments. Just show's that it is not the equipment, it is the mind & eye of the user that counts!!!
  • Thanks to all who posted and commented about how wonderful the super-wide zoom was! I finally saved up for one and must say it is all the post have raved about. This is my favorite Nikon 1 lens. ...
  • Replied in V1 & batteries
    I have two V1 batteries, a Nikon and some 3rd party Japanese. Both just don't hold a charge for more then 150 shots. I do have the timer on longer because of getting tired of on/off while ...
