There is now a fix for the Sony 'striping' issue: Buy a Nikon*

*or Canon, Fujifilm, Olympus or Pentax.

On article Nikon 1 V1 / J1 Review (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

CHEAW HON MING: I have 2 V1s β€” one bought in USA and one in Malaysia (last year in January and April 2014) and my wife and I used it mainly for travel and nature photography (actually my wife "hijacked" my V1+FT mount+70-300mm combo so I got another mainly using the FT+80-400mm). We were quite happy with its performance as we had to travel light and quickly shoot whatever that we liked until the beginning of this year β€” the LCD monitor completely went off both cameras. Repairing it would be expensive and I will continue to use it with the EVF until it too goes off. The plastic ring that holds the filter/cap has also cracked and needed some superglue. This is the main complain of most of my Nikon friends β€” unreliability of parts and expensive repair. Maybe it only happens in this country.

As you may know by now it isn't a problem with the LCD monitor but an over-sensitive eye-sensor that is a bit dusty. It is a common problem on the V1, mine has it. Clean the eye-sensor and the monitor will retirn to normal functioning.

JEROME NOLAS: Finally camera for my cat!!!

That's in rather Paw taste, but you may not be Feline well.

Suddenly I want one.

Come on DPR review please.

I would head to Whitby or the Eskdale valley in the hopes of emulating the great Frank Sutcliffe.

etsetse: happy to get this confirmation that it is still a good decision to buy an overpriced iphone .......
their cameras are not the best but the'feel good 'is still the best.....
thanks for info.....

What is the point of buying a smartphone for the best camera if the user can't maximise its potential?

michael_alabama: This discussion will not end until we get a DSLR which can make phone calls a.s.o.
I wait for this camera for years now.

Didn't you know that DSLR's have had their day!

Toselli: At the end of the day it still depends on the priority you give to the camera in relation to the other features of the phone. It's pretty much the same with "real" cameras: we don't simply buy whatever has the best image quality, but we choose based on all the features, ergonomics and interface, the whole system of available optics and accessories, and latter but not least, price.

Generally, smartphone cameras perform their worst at the end of the day.

As it has been said a 1000+ times before, a smartphone camera is only as good as the "photographer" taking the selfie.

I updated and now find LR is even slower!

Anyone else experience the same thing?

cdembrey: All bokeh is FAKE!!! Bokeh never happens in real life!!! Sit at the end of a large large football pitch, and both goals will be in approximate focus.

No, bokeh is REAL. It happens, quite naturally, in a lens designed by Humans and not in the eye of the Human. Photography isn't a photocopy.

If you "could never explain" it is because you can't possibly think of one.

rockjano: Oh people forget the whole thing and build a Hackintosh.
I did it
It works like a charm, fast as hell, cheap as it should be... if anything goes wrong I just go to the local computer shop and buy new stuff. I have 8 drives in my system no problem, fast video card, fast Intel CPU the whole thing IS FAAAST

I was a long-long time apple user (25 years) I will never buy a Mac again. Their operating system YES their machines NO.... never again....

@rockjano, Thanks for the info. I am very happy with my Mac but would like to do this as a project. I think it will be fun.

As regards your comment about rewriting software for Apple's own chips. You may remember when Apple migrated from OS 9 to 10 and then from Power PC chips to Intel. All software had to be re-written. However, the "old" software ran seemlessly in emulation, an amazing solution and amazing coding. I expect Apple will do the same again.

Cheers!
