I have been experimenting with cropping images to "increase the FOV / equivalent FL".

For example if the image is cropped by 50% in length and with a 4 meg images results with the FOV of a lens with twice the focal length. This is the same FOV of a 1" sensor. The Nikon V1 would produce the same image as the cropped 4 meg but would be 10 megs.

Take a look at these images from a safari taken with the Nikon V1.

Thinking of getting the V1 ($300 with 10-30mm lens and $200 for an adaptor for Nikon lenses that supports AF & AE).

Do you think this is a sensible alternative to the NEX C3 with an adaptor for Nikon lenses and cropping?

I look in there a fair bit Jerry. mainly because a few people shoot what I like in there. I'm impressed by what I see. Including nature and BIF's.

All the best Jerry and good luck with whatever you do.
