  • Thanks for the post. Not a lot of new information in this review which has a general negative overtone. There are lots of positive in the review, only with occasional "mean it just doesn't impress ...
  • I knew that CPA didn't have those dedicated buttons when I bought it. I never had a problem with that. Good to know that is helpful.
  • Thanks bluzman. A bit of steep learning curve for me, especially at the longer end. The light weight and short overhang do make handling at the longer end easier.
  • There is. I switch between single shot and video regularly. I set the Fn 1 to shutter release. I can switch between single shot and video by turning the command dial while pressing the Fn1. When on ...
  • Thanks rangel28. The VR was very good. I could hand held at 1/60 sec and kept the ISO at 100. That helped.
  • Thanks jshen, I am really happy with the portability and versatility of the A1000.
  • Thanks Zdenka. I have to stretch the A1000 over its normal limit a bit. I am sure that you can get better results with your P900.
  • To complete my induction to my A1000, I followed what Rangel28 did and took a moon shot last night. This was my first clear night as we have been plagued with nonseasonal rain and wind in the last ...
  • It is hard to figure out how they worked these numbers out. I got 840 mm FX on the LCD at 151 mm max optical zoom of the A1000 as well. If I work with the actual sensor sizes, the crop factor would ...
  • Well said. I have been using my CPA for four and a half years and have not been for one moment bothered by its AF performance. The CPA came out after the N1 series. A lot of reviewers were crying ...
  • 5.6 seems to be the crop factor used by Nikon as well. The A1000 has displayed the FX equivalent on the LCD when I zoom in. I did two quick tests. I got the following: 70 mm on LCD, 12.5 mm of ...
  • I suspect that the ISO 3200 was the combined results of f/13 and 1/1250 sec. Better results could be had for lower shutter speed and wider aperture. The lens on the D500 was a 300mm F4. I don't see ...
  • Very nice demonstration of the advantage of a much bigger sensor.
  • Please don't. You only looked more into why you didn't want to like it. You really like your GR, and looks like you regretted selling it for a CPA. If I were you, I'll get a GR III. The GR III is a ...
  • I know your feeling when it turned out not meeting your expectations. I was just as disappointed when you said that the AF was too slow and the IQ not up to APSC standard. That wasn't my experience ...
  • Thanks for doing the comparisons. I am still shooting Jpeg with my A1000, more because I still need to get up to speed with RAW processing. I am very happy with the SOOC jpeg so far. I use flash ...
  • Good forward planning. Me too, I carry my CPA with me all the time. It is so well made and portable, allowing me to take excellent images and videos anytime, anywhere. To me, the CPA will go down ...
  • No. You are not the minority. Those complaining about the AF speed of the CPA are. I have my CPA for four and a half years and have been enjoying using it. I have hundreds of lovely images from the ...
  • I pair my AFP DX 70-300 with my D5600 most of the time. I don't have an issue with its sharpness. I always found my images well focused. Most of the sharpness issues were my own making, like over ...
  • Very nice indeed. Really encouraged by what you can get out of the A1000.
