  • The biggest ommission in the N1 series for me is flash support. If Nikon only made an adapter for a standard hotshoe, then I could use my entire suite of Speedlights, wireless flash triggers, ...
  • Off-axis flash and ring flash are a major part of my photography as well. Here's what Nikon's omission requires me to do for off camera flash: I've had to rig a flash bracket with my SB-N5 pointed ...
  • I'm still using my V1. I have the following lenses: 10mm f/2.8 18.5mm f/1.8 6.7-13mm Why haven't I upgraded? I've made it my rule since my first DSLR (D100) that I only upgrade when the current ...
  • I still can't believe Nikon hasn't come out with this.  The reason why I never left the Nikon camp is because of their devotion to backwards compatibility (at least compared to Canon or Sony).  ...
  • The dimension of the native sensor could have accommodated a higher resolution crop than it does, at least based on the diagram above.

  • An amazing camera with every function that a photographer needs and more. Yeah, a tilt screen would've been useful, touch screen... etc. Personally, I don't use those, so not a problem for me. ...

  • They should have listened earlier.
  • With good skills and a tripod, the Nikon V1 is great for landscapes.  I came from a D700 and after it died, my V1 was all I had besides my iPhone and my medium format film cameras.  It is ...
  • Poorly done HDR can be an eyesore, but HDR used to overcome the disadvantage sensors have compared to the eye is a necessity in some scenes. With all tools, you must fight the tendency to misuse it.

  • Commented on Ricoh GR comparative review preview

    Here's the advantage most people don't notice:
    Flash sync speed: 1/2000 sec!!! This means you can use fill flash in bright daylight without a neutral density filter! You can capture things no...

  • Here's another one from today's sunset: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotogeneticist/14750615163/
  • I wish I was back in the Ricoh camp. I've been a fan of Ricoh since the original film GR21 cameras. They know how to make cameras for photographers, not just pixel peepers or hipsters. I got...

  • Yes!  Everyone should have this lens.  To be quite honest, however, even it is not quite wide enough for me.  I would like Nikon to make a 5-9mm f/2.8 lens--essentially the equivalent of my ...
  • Awesome shot!  You've inspired me to get my old 300mm f/2.8 out for some moon shots as well!
  • Thank you andrbar as well.  This was definitely more of a "test" shot than one with composition in mind.  But the color came out so well that I definitely am going to play around with the ...
  • Thanks for the tip.  I was trying to decide where to go with this photo and just decided to post the original, uncropped stitch for now.  I might play around with this a little more later.  Thanks!
  • DuxX, as Andy points out, the word "never" is where you are wrong. My APS-C from 12 years ago is nowhere as good as the quality of my 1" sensor from 2 years ago. You're missing a key element, and...

  • I'm still going through other photos I took yesterday, but this one came out better than I thought it would so I thought I'd post it here.  I continue to be amazed by my V1 and 6.7-13mm combo.  ...
  • Yes, you MUST get one!  Like I said, I don't know why I waited so long. I'm really enjoying the ability to use 52mm filters with it (although I forgot my filters at home in this particular ...
  • I actually thought I had brought my ND filters.  As the sun was setting and I searched through my bag for them, I realized I left them on my dining table.  So I stopped down the lens to f/16 and ...
