I am not a diver.  I always had 1 waterproof camera for pools, beaches, rain, water rides and rare snorkling.  My current waterproof camera needs replacement after faithful >5 yrs. I am debating between getting a previous generation Olympus TG or similar vs getting J1 waterproof case at $99. To those who own one, what would be your advice? Thanks --Daniel Ohps. I truly believe photography as a hobby is defined by the pleasure you get from the activity. It does not matter what equipment or...

Hi! I am a point-and-shoot user wanting to upgrade, preferably to a compact P&S or an ILC. As I am pretty much on a tight budget, I have narrowed down my choices to cameras that cost $300 and below. After much research, I've considered a Nikon J1 as an option. I know how this camera gets its fair share of love and hate (with its smaller sensor compared to competitors, among many other things) but as a casual snapper, I think that this camera will pretty much suit what I need. My camera's...

Hi there. Got my J1 last year. Took a lot of pictures and overall I am very pleased with it. I got the standart 10-30mm and 30-110mm from Nikon. I am learning this (how to take proper photographs) slowly. Also trying to experiment and find new ways to take photos. Last I found out about the way cheap f1.4 security camera lenses that creates wonderful bokehs. I am happy with that experimenting. Right now I am interested in extending my range with telephoto attachments. Mind you my budget is...

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...

I had a K110D years ago and it worked okay with manual A, M and K type lenses. I think I had to set some custom function to allow use of the aperture ring on the lens. Does the K500 still allow this function? Does the focus peak feature work with manual lenses? I'm not sure what is happening to the K-50/500 with the K-S1 out now, but I see the K-500 is $399. Might be a good time to get back into an SLR again. BTW, I now have a Nikon J1. I like the compact size but it struggles with noise at...

Hey guys.  So I am recommending a Nikon J1 to my parent in laws, as they want something with good quality but also with solid reach, that will work as an all-in-one camera for an upcoming trip.  They also want it for grandkid pics and shots of birds,deer,etc on their property. As such, my 3 top choices were: Nikon J1.  (28-300ish mm with 10-30/30-110 or close with 10-100) A travel zoom (28-700mm) -- great range but sucky indoors/lowlight. A Lumix LF1  (26-200mm) -- more pocketable, decent...

J1 with 10-30mm and 30-110mm I'm considering purchase of the 18.5 f1.8 prime. My understanding is that it doesn't come with a lens hood. Would the lens hood from the 30-110 fit, using bayonet lugs? Would it be too big to reverse on the lens when retracted? Would it vignette? If it does fit, but vignette, I'm thinking of getting an inexpensive 30-110mm lens hood (used or clone) and using something like a dremel tool to form a petal. Maybe shaved depth to fit reversed? Flawed idea? BTW: I'm a...
