Just bought a refurbished Nikon 1 J1. Found everything in the box except a battery charger unit. I contacted the seller and he's claiming that on the J1 the battery is charged in the camera via the USB cable. I'm highly doubtful especially as the manual states that a dedicated charger unit is needed and should be in the box - but I just want to verify that the seller is giving me BS before I give him an unpleasant phone call. Can any J1 owner confirm either way?

I purchased a Nikon J1 for family photos and vacations and then upgraded to a Nikon V1 shortly after. I love the size and speed of the Nikon 1 system but now I have the ever popular itch to upgrade. As a guest here for years, I've been reading & learning and have over time added street photography, some landscape photography, and family portraits to my very amateurish range of skills/tastes. Current Gear: Nikon V1 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 (2) 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 10mm f/2.8 18.5mm f/1.8 Watch...

Currently using a Nikon J1 for making Youtube videos but I am growing tiresome of the dinky "3-inch" LCD Screen. I would like to get something that has a LARGE LCD screen (eyes not as good as they once were) that takes good videos (720p/60fps) and has good sound quality on its own. The J1 definitely has the great sound. Any and all suggestions welcome.

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...
