I bought into the Nikon 1 system a while ago when Amazon had one of those super sales of the day that offered the J2 plus the 10-30mm. and 30-110mm. zooms very cheaply. An impulse buy!  I considered it kind of a fun diversion from my DX photography, but not much more. Then I received the 18.5mm. lens as a gift and found it to be fanstastic for low light work. Finally, I talked myself into getting the 70-300mm. zoom, based on the quality of images I saw on Flickr taken by that lens.  I have...

Anyone done this I am doing some video and stills (not with J2) at an event on Monday.. Just thought .. my J2 has an interval timer. I could set up a Small jpeg size 1936 x 1296 (similar to HD frame size) and after cropping, make a time lapse movie. trying to work out frame frequency and resultant move length over the day, now.. Any insights etc appreciated --There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':

Currently I have the Olympus XZ-1 which I find very slow in focus tracking. Nights of research have pointed me to the Nikon 1 when it comes to focus tracking speed. Despite the smaller sensor size compared to the m43 or APS-C, seems like its still the king of focus tracking, is that true? So I will be mainly taking pictures of my son who is now 15 months old, he is very active. Occasional nice portrait will be nice as well. I found the J2 for around 300USD, and J3 and S2 goes for 450USD. Is...

Hi Guys, I was wondering, if any one know, is there any Adapter with Aperture Ring for Nikon 1 system. I already have an Adapter for my Nikon 1, But it dont have Aperture Ring. The Idea which I have in my mind, is using any Nikon F mount lens, specially AF, in which you cant control the Aperture on lens. instead of using FT1 mount. Looking for a cheap solution :P

Hi all I'm getting really good quality in video from the J2... I'd just like to extend the usefulness in lower light with a slower shutter speed than jacking up the ISO. Seems that 1/100th sec is automatic. At least I haven't found out a way to alter it ..yet Thanks     --There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':

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...

I have a Nikon J2 which doesn't produce a very good image quality when using jpg format. so, I installed the NEF codec and found that the raw images are much sharper and the colors are much better than jpeg format when viewed in Windows photo viewer with the codec. So, I saved the preview image by pressing the Print Screen key on the keyboard as a png file, and that looked much better than jpeg too. if the NEF preview is shown on the screen, that means the data has already been stored in the...

I tried to find the answers here with search and google but no joy yet. any takers? Thanks --There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':

I presume you have no way of selecting an aperture on these adapers unless you go for the FT-1? I have a 50mm AFS that I doubt can be used on my J2? Others posting here using older  f1.4 lenses have selectable apertures on their lenses I guess. The 2.7 crop looks an interesting option. Any advcice appreciated --There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
