  • Actually I backed it up- I gave you the pointers to look it up. Vastly gave you pointers for Japan and you just decided to ignore it. No, we do not need exact number of hoolahoop sales to know ...
  • I am honestly expecting the same sensor of the J4/V3, but with a selfie capability. But I welcome Nikon to prove me wrong and put in a nice new sensor.
  • We don't need exact numbers to know it hasn't been selling well. You can do your homework. I gave you some information and pointers to follow up. You can also get an idea for similar charts in US/ ...
  • Tried the suggestions but did not work for me. But I appreciate the ideas.  I will just take it to a Nikon authorized dealer.
  • Certainly and it's great that some of these options work for us. I was mentioning the marketplace for it. I agree the camera doesn't stop working and if it works for the needs and wants, it's ...
  • First, I want to make clear that the text in italics is a question you are asking. The way is put could be interpreted as me asking the question. For the DR the answer is yes. I have. You can still ...
  • Certainly. I believe I said this very same thing a couple of times. I am interested in photography. I am merely separating photography from the more technical question that was asked by the OP. I ...
  • Having to setup the camera with a sandbag/monopod kills already some types of photography, so yes, seems pretty significant to me. You don't normally go around doing street photography setting the ...
  • The cost is already pretty high. The Nikon 1 system isn't really selling in the market. So either Nikon figures this out or eventually the Nikon 1 is kept either by goodwill/Japanese honor, or ...
  • I did not suggest we "throw our hands and surrender."  You are talking about something else. The thread was about sensor tech, so that's what I am talking about. This is not mutually exclusive or ...
  • The problem is that we are talking about sensor tech here, not about what the skill of the photographer brings. You can say that about any camera or sensor/lens combo then. Why go for a Nikon 1 ...
  • I wouldn't call at least 1 stop in DR not "nearly as significant." Of course, maybe you want to see 2-3 stops up, and tin that case, significant is only going full frame. In my view I am just ...
  • if they put it out.  Hopefully they will. It will have a prime fast standard zoom for the camera. I would also love that 80-400 range (~30-150) F4 or F2.8 lens we were talking about (not a rumor, ...
  • I am sorry but I find this statement absurd. How exactly the V3 is a "camera for photographers?" How is a fuji with specific dials for aperture/shutter and now iso any less "for photographers?" ...
  • No. Some people can be best served with a Sony 1'' camera. Why the necessary jump? Why does it have to be Nikon 1 or bigger camera? Yes, of which the Sony model represents yet another set of ...
  • That's fine but that's a non sequitor to the point I brought up.  I mean, I agree with what you are saying, but it doesn't have to do with what we were discussing. We are comparing sensors and ...
  • Thanks. I wasn't sure if Nikon would write this as "under warranty" or not.  I guess I should just try it.
  • I did!  I made a mistake when I was hovering to read the EXIF data from dpreview's website.  :-) I am still not sure how the Nikon does better than the E-P3- the shot looks like it could have a ...
  • Are you shooting raw and using something like IridientDigital (mac only though), Capture One (latest), or LR 5.7 with the detail slider all the way up to 100%? I mainly notice a difference due to ...
  • I am not super worried but when you have a spec in the back part of the lens which starts small that is reasonably big, and several in the front you wonder.
