  • My V1 was a refurb, no problems at all, I think though it could depend on the seller, if through Nikon I would think you would be ok. With others I might look carefully at who honors the warranty, ...
  • Thanks for the link summed up nicely with this paragraph, "I must confess that I really like using the Nikon 1 system. I know, I know. You’ve read a lot of negative comments on the internet. And ...
  • This coming from somebody who clearly has no concept of how photographs in a newspaper are printed. Perhaps not only are your historical assumptions flawed but also your writing comprehension. "I'm ...
  • I would be one of those Canon users! The N1 system smoked the EOS M which seems to have pretty much been abandoned by Canon and for good reason. It was a failure.
  • Ok where's the applause emoticon!
  • Then you be even more incorrect since you would have no reason to have to register a single black plate.
  • Think the correct answer is that it depends entirely on how you work and the conditions you work under. Perhaps on cheap lenses filters might not seem economical and I suppose that makes some ...
  • You do realize I was responding to the comment "I don't think newspapers ever published high qaulity images". Which is incorrect. Yes newspapers print on a grade of paper that is not great for ...
  • Nope that couldn't be further from the truth unless you've never looked at a NY Times, Globe and Mail, Chicago Tribune, Toronto Star, USA Today.... For that matter any of the major dailies. ...
  • Pocket? You mean that wonderful source of crud that can work it's way into your lens elements? Typically the camera is either slung over my shoulder or resting in the palm of my hand ready to go ...
  • Replied in 70-300 test
    You guys have seagull or pigeon problems? ;) interesting comparison, other than the colour balance not much if any difference. Thanks!
  • I don't typically use a lens cap so using the OEM hood is very important to protect the front element, I also use a good quality filter such as MC Toshiba or B+W.
  • It's been a while but I don't think things have changed a lot. There is no definitive answer in terms of how folks behind the counter work because there can be alot of factors at play. For example ...
  • You have also successfully written the epitaph for news photographers. Most papers are taking the mindset that poor quality phone images are good enough for publication. Also because they ...
  • In other words if you had a fast f1.8 or 1.2 in you kit would that help with your low light problems? i'm personally not a big fan of electronic flash unless it's in a more controlled environment ...
  • Very interesting, it certainly will separate those that know and understand the fundamentals of photography vs those that have no idea what such things as hyperfocal distance are.... Granted I also ...
  • As Myzel said, it's already done on cameras like the Lieca M, problem with this non SLR design is that you either wind up building some sort of optical zooming system so that you get correct ...
  • Over here Henry's is on preorder and Vistek is out of stock. Guess you guys got lucky!
  • I own an FZ200 and a V1, no comparison the V1 is much better in IQ. The FZ has the long and fast zoom but can't match the V1 sensor. I shoot mostly video with the FZ. Have to say the HV400 sounds ...
  • Looks like Canon is eyeing the Panasonic LX7 market but with a bigger sensor, seems preety upscale with f1.8 on wide and possibly a zoom/focus ring on the lens. Just hope they didn't botch the ...
