  • 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 ...
  • Created discussions Fire Sale on the 10-100
    For those who are interested. The 10-100 is on sale at Henry's for $250 ($500 off). http://www.henrys.com/66539-NIKON-1-10-100MM-4-5-6-VR-BLACK-POWER-ZOOM.aspx
  • An acknowledgement from Nikon as to what this camera is actually for. For me, it's size and speed mean it is a walk-around travel/kids/street shooting camera (and I acknowledge the reach aspect the ...
  • For the type of camera it is, it needs: A smaller focus box/focus area An articulating screen for street/angle shooting Either faster lenses or a slightly larger sensor to kick low-light abilities ...
  • Thanks for the links... that's what I was looking for and it really helps. David
  • So some clarity I guess... I really just enjoy manual focus, so I want something I can do that with. In addition, as I often focus on something that is not in the centre of the frame, with the AF ...
  • Hi everyone, Wondering what people would recommend for cheap, good, manual focus lenses. I really, really want to get back into manual focus. Some of the 10-24's look interesting, and I was ...
  • Dumb question: Did you update your FT-1 firmware to version 1.2 as per the instructions? Per Nikon: When camera firmware is updated to this version, autofocus does not function when an FT1 running L ...
  • Thanks for that... I know sweet f-all about post processing. Shoot .jpg out of camera and am currently using Google's Picassa just because of ease. Next on my list is to learn what sharpening, ...
  • The sun was bright for this one, and naturally the greens didn't really "pop", but I was looking for something a bit less washed out looking to contrast with the boats: This one it was a bit dark ...
  • Quick question: If I wanted to post a photo or two and ask for suggestions on how to improve them, this forum the beginners forum, or one of the photography forums? The reasons I ask are that my ...
  • I'll be a bit of a dissenting voice... I think the 10-30 is crap. I see absolutely no reason for this lens. It's slow. With that level of zoom - just use your damn feet. It's "big". Either pick up ...
  • No way to find them... place was last rented out 5+ years ago and the two cameras were found in the back of a closet as they were getting ready to sell. No clue to whom they belong or how to even ...
  • Created discussions Quick FT1 question
    Hi, I was just given an opportunity to get a couple of free Nikon film cameras with their respective "kit" lenses: F-401 and F-601 as well as a Nikon 70mm-270mm (I think) zoom. Just wanted to ...
  • Here are my "reasons": 1) Ignore birds, wildlife, and sports - for reasons you already mentioned. 2) "Spray and Pray" is AWESOME for kids - little buggers always turning their heads or blinking ...
  • Hi again, Just because I have no other Nikon gear, and am just "trying it out", I've decided on the 55-200 lense for price reasons and image stabilization at max. magnification. Here's where I feel ...
