  • The 18.5mm and the 32mm lenses are my favorite lenses for the Nikon 1 system. The 18.5mm being the perfect Nikon 1 lens - small, light weighted, optical good, with extremely fast AF and cheap. The ...
  • I guess it's the easiest to see image quality aspect. Talking about the sharpness of a lens is easier and less subjective than talking about - for example - bokeh. Often sharpness is used as a word ...
  • That should be the headline of this forum :)
  • I think you are missing the point Joe wants to make (that is if I understand what Joe wrote correctly and I could be wrong). He writes about the right tool for the right task and that no camera is ...
  • As always, a very good picture. Thank you for showing it. The high-key b/w look creates the perfect mood for high temperature coolness. The pose of the woman creates a dynamic contrast to the ...
  • It depends on what makes it worth spending money for you ;) The 10mm is a very small lens. For me it's ridiculously small and I always have to smile when I mount it on my V1.  You'll gain the ...
  • Replied in 18.5mm prime
    The 18.5mm is slightly shorter than the 10-30mm lens in its collapsed form and has about the same diameter. So yes it's more compact, but the difference is not that big - at least not as big as the ...
  • Yes, to some degree they explain what they do and how big a difference has to be to be noticeable. But they don't explain how many cameras of each type they use and how many test runs for each ...
  • Sample variation, only a few (if more than one) cameras of each type tested, not enough tests, slightly different environmental conditions … it all adds up. DxO doesn't tell the standard deviation ...
  • It's only added value if the buyer wants to use Lightroom. But it's good that other companies increase the pressure on Nikon. The Nikon 1 pricing is simply to high and Nikon needs to recognize ...
  • The SB-300 is almost identical to the SB-N7. I wonder why anybody would want to use that tiny flash on a dSLR if he can buy a SB-400 with more power (guide number 18 vs. 21 at ISO 100). At the ...
  • Replied in Aspenz!
    Post processing can't bring back information that isn't there. If highlights or shadows are recovered in post processing then the information was there in the first place within the raw file but ...
  • It would be interesting to see the same scene with the same exposure settings on both cameras (raw conversions). And thank you for your examples. And by the way: your clock in one of the cameras ...
  • Ah, didn't think about that. Thanks.
  • As I said the blacks and highlights are within the dynamic range of the sensor (no shadow clipping and no blown highlights). The rest is the tone curve applied to the image that makes the shadows ...
  • The mid-tones look better. Thanks for your edited version.
  • A different post processing done quickly - surely not the best that could be done. Clearly shows the limits of the Nikon 1 sensor (noise in the shadows). different post processing
  • And would make the image look flat in my opinion. There are no blown highlights and the shadows aren't blocked (only the extrem dark parts of the tree trunk are slightly blocked). I could lift the ...
  • I'm not worried about it. I'm just curious what others like and what they need. From what I've read and seen many like less contrasty images compared to my taste. More dynamic range certainly makes ...
  • I often read that the Nikon 1 system doesn't have enough dynamic range. Those comments always make me wonder how much dynamic range people need or want and what they do with it if they have a ...
