Good Day On two consecutive Sunday's I photographed birds sitting on the out door trellis of a coffee shop I frequent.  On the first Sunday I shot them without difficulty using my Nikon V1 and 10-110 lens. On the second Sunday I had my EM-5 and 12-40 with me and attempted to shoot them at 40. Given the premium lens I expected a much better result. But try as I might I could not get the camera to focus. Even after verifying that the manual focus ring hadn't been accidentally retracted.  I was...

One of my V1 cameras will not switch from the EVF to rear screen.  It began malfunctioning today.  Upon first turning 'ON', the rear screen would illuminate normally, and when raised to eye-level, would switch to the EVF...normal operation.  But then, when removed from the eye, it would not switch back to the rear screen.  I thought, perhaps the tiny sensor was merely dirty and carefully cleaned it.  Now, the rear screen will not light at all.  The EVF remains 'ON' until the camera is...

My friend came across a v1 for 100 dollars today and asked me if it was worth buying. He doesn't have a camera and would like something small and affordable to get into. I was going to give him an 11-27 as a gift since I never use it if he does decide to purchase.I told him for 100 dollars you cant really go wrong. He seems skeptical since the camera is a bit "dated"

I own a Nikon V1 camera. I used it for about 6 months. However i am facing some weird issue now. The camera is not able to focus correctly. It only focuses when I zoom in completely. For any lower zoom it is not able to focus and give me sharp picture. This issue has rendered camera completely unusable. Any pointers are welcome.

I have been thinking of buying the legendary Panasonic 14-45mm for years now. I actually ordered it (used, for $180) from Amazon a few days ago, but I had serious second thoughts and decided to cancel the order today. I already have the 14-42mm that came with my GH2. I know the image quality is not as good, but after re-visiting some old threads, it seems like it's close enough to not warrant the upgrade. I also gave up on the 12-32mm, since it apparently exhibits shutter shock at 32mm under...

I heard of others using a non-nikon lens converter in the manual mode on a V1 so I went out and bought an inexpensive one just to play with using my DX lens. Well so far I can not find a way to make it work. I have since heard of chipped adaptors?? I'm not ready yet to pay the cost of the camera to get an FT1. Any words of wisdom here. Is there a workaround?

I just updated to v1.31 and I can't get the Samsung Remote Studio from iLauncher to work. It brings up the message "please use body firmware 1.31 or higher" even though it says my firmware is v1.31! Has anyone else been experiencing this?

Nikon shows the SB-n5 flash compatible with only the V1 and V2. Surely that is not the case. Can it indeed be used across the whole N1 series?

Hooray!  Finally have an N1 with a viewfinder. Firmware is 1.0 across the board. I've heard so many different things about firmware that I feel like a deer frozen by headlights.  It sometimes sounds like with every new release Nikon takes two steps forward.  But there's almost always a 'one step back'!  Can anyone shed some light on both the pros and cons of the various firmware updates available?
