  • While I don't have any FX/DX lenses in my bag, I can say that the 6.7-13mm lens is my favorite lens in my kit.  My V2 is my primary camera and part of the thought is that I want something ...

  • Of course no official announcement from Nikon yet, but this isn't terribly surprising.  Since the plant that makes N1 cameras in China is closed, I guess all N1 cameras are de facto discontinued.  ...
  • Saw this and I'm a little suprised that there hasn't been more discussion over here. Yes, Nikon has patented several lenses for 1" sensors that have never made it to market. I'd say the timing of ...
  • Replied in RIP Marti
    So sorry to hear this.  Marti always seemed to be such a nice fellow in all of his interactions here.
  • Spent a little time in the garden at the local museum. Still some fall color about. Leaves on a bench. Nikon V2 with 18.5mm lens f/3.5 Some fruit/berry I do not recognize.  Nikon V2 with 18.5mm ...
  • Replied in Update
    Not that I have any great expectations, but if they decided to produce a V4 or a J6, those would technically be different models of camera than were produced in Wuxi.  I think what we can truly ...
  • Thanks for sharing this.  Though I wish it wasn't true, it looks like this is the place where the N1 cameras were assembled.  Though I know there were problems with the processor, it also makes me ...
  • Replied in Mostly J & S
    During my summers I work at a visitor information desk at Mt. Rainier National Park.  I would say that Nikon 1 cameras make up about 1-2% of the dedicated cameras that I see around people's necks. ...
  • Since the famous subalpine meadows of Mt Rainier are still melting out, I went on a lower elevation hike on the Wonderland Trail in Steven's Canyon. My V2 was used for all shots with the 18.5mm ...
  • Avalanche Lily A trillium with a blush of color (most are white). As things melt out at Mt Rainier, I went on a hike to Comet Falls. Used the 6.7-13mm for wide landscape shots and the 18.5mm for ...
  • Replied in Deer and fawn
    Here's one from last Summer.  These two were just outside of my cabin at Mt. Rainier National Park and seemed comfortable enough for me to use the 30-110mm zoom on my V2. Black-tailed deer in the ...
  • Replied in Tulips at Dawn
    Thanks purpwaltz. :)
  • Replied in Tulips at Dawn
    These are a year old, but I figure now is a good time to share some tulip shots. The challenge of bright sunrise vs. flowers still in the shade. SOOC JPG.  Just didn't see much reason to tweak this ...
  • Yup, I've appreciated the input as well.  Sometimes it takes other people's eyes and experience for me to learn a new trick.
  • Here's it is with a bit of work with the contrast and microcontrast sliders. It does help bring some more detail out in the trees instead of being a wall of dark. The flowers pop a little more ...
  • Thanks for the tip.  Will try that out.
