Hey all! I'm an Aussie about to embark on the trip of a lifetime - heading to Canada for a year, and then who knows where after that? Possiblities include a road trip through USA, a good 6 months travelling through Eastern Europe, a good 6 months travelling through Central America or all of the above! I currently have a nikon D610, with 50mm f1.8, 16-35mm f4, and a 70-200mm f2.8. About to purchase a sb-700 speedlite, and already have a lightweight tripod. I feel pretty comfortable with...
I am moving to a different country for 6 months and am tired of bringing m yD-SLR around with me. I currently own the Nikon D3100. I am looking to purchase something smallish, compact yet will take beautiful photos. The LEICA X2 seems beautiful but is the extra money worth it compared to the FUJIFILM X100T? Would I be better of saving my money and just getting a Nikon 1 AW1? Is there other camera models that I would be better off looking at? If I am spending $1000 I want something that really...
I bought my AW1 last month. I used it for a couple of days, both in and out of water without any problems. But then one day when we were out snorkeling a message suddenly appeared on the screen, it said something about the Lens didn't have any contact with the camera. When I turned the camera around I saw water drops behind the front glass of the lens. If someone wonders, I did follow the instructions and used grease before mounting the lens and closed the latches and I checked the seals very...
I am considering getting an AW1 with either a V2 or a V3. If I am correct, each camera requires a different battery and in the case of an AW1 with a V3, different memory cards. I can live with that and I'm aware that the V3 EVF occupies the hot shoe; None of these issues are deal breakers for me. I intend to use the AW1 on vacations in the water and either the V2 or the V3 as a walk-about camera. I currently have a Fuji EX-1 with 35mm and 18mm lenses and several film cameras. I have a couple...
I am thinking of getting into photography more seriously. Though used an SLR many years ago, since I went digital I have been using compacts (Olympus Tough u8000) and really just pointing and shooting. A lot of my photography is landscapes taken while hiking, so portability and weather resistance are important, though I want a good all-round camera too. I am undecided whether to go for a system, or a fixed lens versatile camera. On the one hand if I go for a system then I would probably only...
Yesterday when I checked, Amazon showed only one AW1 for sale, and every color and kit was back-ordered or out of stock at B&H.Did Nikon have a short manufacturing run, quality control problems, or did they create a shortage to keep prices high?'Tis the season for a waterproof camera (in the northern hemisphere).
Does anyone know why Amazon has stopped carrying the AW1 after only a few months? This is a very unusually short length of time for Amazon. Even if something better were just around the corner, Amazon usually will overlap the sales period (for example, the Pany FZ150 kept on long after the FZ200 came out). I was thinking of getting the AW1, but now I'm having second thoughts. Does this discontinuance mean that there is a problem with the AW1?
