I bought the V1 to use as a TC because frankly I can't afford any of the nice long (600-800mm) glass that is ideal for birds. I have had pretty good luck using my Tokina 400/5.6 handheld if the light is good. But of late I have been using my Tamron SP Adaptall 2 200-500/5.6 which isn't really something that can be handheld, at least not by me. So I need advice on tripods, heads etc. Currently I have an Induro with a 3 way head. Works fine for my big old glass on my Pentax body because I...
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...
Hey Guys, about a hour ago I installed the V1.3 firmware on my fully charged formatted NX1.. its been stuck on 'Checking firmware.." since and hasnt budged, on the top screen it has .. not sure if that means anything? Anyway.. what do I do?! :( I dont want to just switch it off and knacker it, but at the same time its not doing anything however the green light on the front of the camera still. Getting very worried that my camera is bricked, I have a big film job in about 2 hours...
I think my search skills are not up to scratch, but I could not find the information. Anyway ... I need to finetune AF on both my K10D and K-5; for the latter because the +10 adjustment no longer seems to cut it for a number of lenses. K10D V1.30The AF test menu has an entry for an af area test; I can select numbers from 0 to 3. What are they? K-5 V1.16 (if not mistaken)Except for af area test, the AF test menu also has an entry for af area number; I can elect numbers from 0 to 10. What are...
Based on some options I have before me, it appears that for not too much money I could trade what I have now for one of the following: Nikon V1 with 10-30mm lens and 30-110mm lens. or Nikon J4 with 10-30mm VR power zoom lens and 30-110mm lens. Which of these would you rather have? Thanks.
Hi all, I am sure all are aware that some lenses use "inverted" lens shades (I lack a better word for a lens shade that has a smaller in its outer end than the end that thread's onto the lens). There must be a fairly simple formula to use, for us who use FX lenses on CX cameras. My Pentax DA40 is such a lens, which thread is 49mm, and the hole in the shade is just 16, or something like that. On my 85/1.8G I use two step-down rings, to go from 67mm to 62, when I use it on my V1, or the V2, but...
After 1.11 to 1.20 update AF key has side effect. 1. "Instant Review" is OFF, "Guide Display" is OFF, "LCD Panel Illumination" is OFF. So LCD is off until explicitly invoked. 2. "AF Button" is AF2 (AF is performed with AF button only). With 1.11 LCD stays off when AF button is pressed. With 1.20 LCD lits black when AF button is pressed. Yes, it looks black but it is on. Question: is there another (new?) option that regular LCD behaviour?
