  • Replied in Welcome
    Cody Welcome to the forum.  We are a pretty helpful group and I am sure will gladly answer any questions you have about your new toy. Good shooting tom
  • I am not at all sure that you are right in your comparison of V3 and Sony RX100.  Have a look at the DPR sample images.  I agree that the N1 falls down quite a bit in JPEG (and I ascribe that to ...
  • so far as I know there are none in Hong Kong dealers now.  The next shipment will be next year.  I spent yesterday with my dealer on the phone to just about everyone as I decided finally to get it. tom
  • I tried the vacuum procedure.  I certainly seems to have cleared something out of the zoom mechanism as it is now much smoother than before, but the specks are still there.  Any other suggestions? tom
  • Is it my imagination, or has there been a change in this site's software which has affected the quality of photos embedded in a thread.  It is now impossible to judge anything about the image ...

    John One of the really great things about the N1 cameras (at least my V1 and V2) is that they just get on with it and do it well, whether focusing, metering or whatever.  Other cameras may have a ...
  • #%^*!  They have sold out for the moment.  Next delivery to Nikon HK is after Christmas! Tom
  • Replied in Focus options
    Bob From a theoretical point of view you are absolutely right, however if you do the sums you will find that it only matters with very wide, fast lenses.  The DOF will easily take care of the ...
  • Joe Great!  You are making it impossible for me to resist that lens.  I am going into the shop this afternoon and see if they can still get it for me tom
  • Replied in Focus options
    John You have had a pretty comprehensive reply about the functionality and I could not add to that. One thing I would say, as a lifelong centre spot focus and recompose user, is that the area focus ...
  • Wonderful shots.  You are making it hard for me to resist that 70-300! tom
  • Thanks.  I agree with you about the 30-110.  Other photographers cannot believe the results I get from such a compact package. These were taken from the start boat. I am very tempted by 70-300 but ...
  • I don't think I did this quite right, the enlargement capability does not seem to be working properly.  Perhaps someone could advise on how they post from galleries? Incidentally, sorry that the ...
  • Created discussions Kiteboard racing in Qatar
    There was very little wind, so no exciting kiteboard photos.  However these give a bit of a view of some of the place.  My photos of the town were taken on my Sony a6000 so I will not defile this ...

  • Thanks for the advice. I will try it when I get home tomorrow and let everyone know what happened tom
  • Created discussions Dismantling 30-110
    There is a large speck of dust on the inside of the front element of my 30-110.  Has anyone any experience in taking the element out so I can clean it? I know it probably makes no difference, and a ...
  • Another thought is the Minolta 35-105 AF   There are two models, and as with the 35-70 the older all metal one is the best.  There is a Macro hack for both of these lenses as well which you can ...
  • Racing has been off a beach on The Pearl, Doha.  The Pearl is a huge man made island development with houses, flats, shops, marinas etc.   It is still being developed so is very dusty.  There is a ...
  • The 28-105 is a pretty good lens but it is a bit bigger and heavier than the 24-105.  It scores 4.5x on Dyxum  which is not at all bad and better than 24-105.   Just be careful that you don't buy ...
