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, everybody! After my J1 died and local Nikon service centre asked for CAD135 to fix it, I picked up on e-bay Japanese J3 for $150 (seems a better deal :)). However, it comes only with English and Japanese languages, and the firmware is at 1.00.  I want to flash it to latest and greatest (too many nice additions - i.e. the focus tracking with FT-1). The question is is it safe to flash it with Canadian (or US) firmware to get access to more languages? Quick googling didn't turn up a definite...

I got V1 with 10-30 for $267 (200e) recently. Now J3 with 10-30 is on sale, also for $267. Should I buy it? What do I win with J3 compared to V1? What do I lose? 14 megapixels vs 10 megapixels, what other differences are there? Does J3 has timelapse photo mode like V1? Will I be able to set J3 to take a photo every five seconds? Will I be able to switch off the LCD screen of the J3 with the camera still functioning like I can with the V1? This is useful for candid street photography and...

I just got  one of these and I was look in for a recommendation on a case for the camera, a card or two, and an extra batt.  Also, anyone have experience with the Wasabi batteries in this device?  Same as J3, and they work great in that, just curious. Thanks

I take a lot of sideline sports photos, and recently got the J3 (bundled with the 10-100). When I took it out with the 30-110 yesterday, the shots did not seem as sharp as the ones I was getting from the older J1. Is this normal, or is there some way to set up the J3 for better sports shooting? These were shot S priority (400) continuous AF, just the same way I set up the J1. --Rube

What you guys think?

First time posting on this forum and couldn't find a post on this subject. I just got the J3 and everything seems to work great with both the kit 10-30mm and the 18.5 lens without flash but I seem to have difficulties getting the proper exposure when I turn on the flash in these modes. All of my pictures seems very dim and can't seem to get the exposure correct. I tried using the night portrait mode and the pictures turn out a bit brighter but the processing time is too long. I would expect...

I'm trying to find a camera (preferably a not too bulky dslr) that is reasonably fast with good photo and video quality including in low light/dusk. By fast I mean including the time it takes to focus (in order to catch a fleeting moment for example). In many reviews in general it's not clear what is meant by the camera being fast. What should I look for to determine whether the fastness of the camera serves my purpose. For example, I tried both Nikon1 J3 and Sony NEx 5r - all reviews...
