  • For the V1 I have two strategies: A. when in-camera JPEGs are enough    - set the camera to the Movie mode and Manual exposure    - select a reasonable ISO setting and set the aperture    - in the...

  • I may eventually buy a V3. If the V3 sensor were in a V1 body, I'd be certain to buy as the V1 body is for me ergonomically the best V body so far, i.e., for my way of shooting, YMMV.
