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 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.' :'!':

Page 121 (Continuous Shooting - The Memory Buffer) of the Nikon 1 V1 manual says "Up to 100 photographs can be taken in succession; note, however, that frame rate will drop when the buffer is full." I expected that this buffer is used in "Electronic (Hi)" shutter type (high-speed burst shooting). With 10fps I was able to record 34 images (image quality and size making no difference) and only 30 image with 30fps or 60fps. That is with 10fps I am able to take only a 3 second burst shot. I have...

Hello, Is there a a way to take a picture when the autofocus doesn't lock on a J2? So far the shutter simply won't fire and I have to refocus until it is locked. I couldn't find any settings related to this. Thanks --Inkheart

Hi, I'm considering upgrading from an old, crappy point-and-shoot to a Nikon 1 J2 (due to reviews of the system and an awesome sale price on the J2).  Currently I use an Eye-Fi and love it, but our camera is not "Eye-Fi Connected", which basically means when we're in range of our home Wifi, pictures will transfer wirelessly in the background, unbeknownst to the camera.  The result is a little awkward and clunky; we usually just leave the camera on all night until the batteries die and let it...
