  • Kids... To this day there is no better camera for taking pictures of little ones than the J series (in my opinion). Anyone of my friends who was looking at something like a D3300 I pointed to the J ...
  • I use a V1. I looked over the V3 and did not buy it. I looked over the J5 and did not buy it. I will need a new camera soon e.g. 12-18 months (my V1 is covered in duct tape). In order to get me to ...
  • I guess it makes sense to start by setting the stage (and apologies for the verbose post)... Most of my wildlife photos are taken when I am hunting/fishing/hiking and mostly in the 2hrs at the end ...
  • I think I'm a bit different here... The actual focal lengths currently available are, I think, sufficient. In one way the lens line-up is complete for a niche product like this (speaking ...
  • The conversation has headed off on a tangent... but I think it's a good tangent ;) In my opinion, the J5 is pretty much a perfect camera for it's intended market - that is families. It has decent ...
  • I honestly don't think it matters. In the "old" days we changed lenses and we changed film. Now we are only changing lenses because the "film" is actually the sensor - which is integrated into the ...
  • That right there is the problem for Nikon... You and I are both N1 system enthusiasts yet we want very different things going forward. For me, my most used lens is the 10mm because it is a pancake. ...
  • I will be taking the J5 for a test run... For me the make/break is the partially articulating (instead of fully articulating) screen and whether that fully replaces the EVF. Although I would like ...
  • I was doing the same thing yesterday... Straight OOC:
  • That's my walk around set-up... usually set to Auto ISO 100-800, Auto WB, Shutter priority, Centre-point AF. Easily coat-jacket pocketable and IMO a better lense than the 10-30 or the 18.5 If the ...
  • Actually: 1) I clearly labelled this a "rant" post. 2) People immediately went off being personal. 3) I would almost swear that people read the title and not the meat of the post - that being my ...
  • Created discussions EVFs are useless
    Yeah - a contentious title, but I just had to get this off my chest. <rant on> In "asking" Nikon for improvements to the V series, I see almost everyone asking for an EVF or poo-pooing (I have a 5 ...
  • My vote would be the 10mm F2.8 I have the 18.5MM and yes, it is a better lens and I do love how the F1.8 masks many of the V1's low-light weaknesses, but I have to say I still use the 10mm way more. ...
  • Created discussions Capture NX-D
    Hey all, I've been using view NX2 since it came free with the camera. I think I'm ready to start "taking it up a notch" in terms of post-processing - what are everyone's thoughts on Capture NX-D? I ...
  • Really, my post title says it all... Bought the 1 series because of children and wildlife - would not buy it again for wildlife. I know I'm in the minority, but I took my v1 30-110 and ft-1 70-300 ...
