mosc: Can somebody quick work out the arc angle visible at 2000mm as compared to what is expected camera shake at the maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec?

I know it would require a lot of light but maybe this thing could manage taking an actual image of THE SUN ON A CLEAR DAY hand held?

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not...this camera doesn't have an optical viewfinder. Point this at the sun all you want, it isn't going to hurt your eyes. It might not be good for the sensor, but it would take quite a bit direct sun exposure to have any major influence on the overall picture.

Rodolfo R: I just realized that the camera is designed only for ambient light. I tried to expose in manual mode with flash and the screen and viewfinder are black. In manual mode the screen/viewfinder shows the correct exposition for ambient light, but it does not work if I want to expose only the flash light. If someone know how to solve this issue please let me know. Don´t tell me please that this is it, and there´s no solution for that.

There is a menu setting for exactly what you are experiencing.

Blue Menu #1 --> SCREEN SET-UP --> PREVIEW EXP. / WB IN MANUAL MODE.

Horshack: Judging by the poor English phrasing of the Nikon USA press release, this commandment came directly from the Mother Ship and was not permitted to be edited/localized by Nikon USA.

Nikon Canada got the same one. I work for a major camera retailer in Canada and we received the same notice from our rep.

I would image the large size of an 82mm filter would also be part of the issue. It would naturally have a bit more give because of the larger surface area. Either way, great article to keep people informed.

Great news from Nikon! They are setting a new standard for quality glass at great prices.

I hear the video just fine. Thanks for the preview! Since I work in a retail camera store, I got an early sneak peak and absolutely love the V1 compared to my D700 and D90
