  • Replied in Nikon j5
    Yes, the J5 is a revelation compared to the previous J models. Fast, responsive, very flexible to use - and with visibly better IQ. I ended up buying two (they have been very cheap - around £200 ...
  • Replied in v3 vs v1
    I started with a V1 (I also have an RX100 and a Fuji X100), and have accumulated the 6.7-13, 18.5, 30-110 and a CCTV lens. Then I bought a J5 - and have loved it so much that I bought another one ...
  • Thanks, that's good news!
  • OK, didn't make it clear - the Sony RX100 lets me shoot in JPEG+RAW mode while also composing in B+W. So the JPEGs are B+W while the RAW (of course) is in colour. On the old G7X, this is not ...
  • I found it very frustrating with the original G7X that - unlike the RX100 - I couldn't compose and shoot in B&W while still having the RAW in colour. The old G7X couldn't use any of the scene ...
  • I've been really enjoying my J5, and for static shots the 30-110mm works fine - the stabilisation really helps, and I find that tilting the screen so I can cradle the camera+lens and look down on ...
  • I definitely find that the N1 system has "good" noise - especially in BW. The new J5 is excellent in this regard, far better than other 1" cameras like the Canon G7X.
  • It's not just Nikon – all camera companies would love to offer small and fast zooms. It's those pesky laws of physics that make it so much harder for interchangeable lens cameras. What make fixed ...
  • I've been able to pick up two J5 bodies for under £200 each over the last few months - definitely worth the investment if you have good N1 glass.
  • Yes, J5 is so far ahead in terms of image quality and responsiveness that silly not to grab one if you can (mine were both below £200). The 30-110mm is a very impressive lens for its size - the VR ...
  • Replied in Best of Three?
    I agree that the Sony RX100 iv is a fantastic camera. And it (like the 24-85mm DL that will one day appear) complement the N1 cameras pretty well. Especially once you move away from the idea that ...
  • Well, I've just bought another (secondhand) J5 for £195. Rather than change lenses I can now just change lens+camera combos. At the moment I have the 6.7-13mm on one and a CCTV lens + Gfoto chip ...
  • On small cameras a touchscreen (and a tilt screen) makes a huge difference to the different POVs you can achieve. Especially when shooting wide. And because they are so small and light they don't ...
  • Can I just suggest a bit of restraint when doing HDRs? Yours look very dramatic, but they also look quite fake now - the difference in lighting between the spires and the rest of the cathedral in ...
  • I have an identical setup. The good thing about it is that when the 24-85 DL arrives you aren't really duplicating anything, so can carry both cameras. If you're expecting to do mostly wide shots, ...
  • It's true that there are lots of affordable and competent alternatives to the N1 system. And yet... every time I think of moving to m43 I wonder if there will be that much benefit in the slightly ...
  • It's not as hard as it might appear on paper, mainly due to the very good VR of that lens - as long as you are reasonably braced (so it's not flying all over the place, ie. not one handed) you do ...
  • To me, the J5 sensor is significantly better than the V1/V2 (haven't used the V3) - together with the faster processor and tilting touchscreen it really does bring back the fun. I haven't used my ...
  • In the UK there's a non-panda silver version as well...
  • You missed out the Panda (black and silver) version, which is by far the sexiest. I have a black J5, and am waiting for a Panda one to go to about £200 and then will stick my silver 18.5mm lens on ...
