  • If you have a favorite lens, you can get a diopter set of 1x, 2x, 4x, and 10x for about 10$ on Ebay(so if you have 50mm/1.8G you can get the 58mm filter set). It is another way of getting closer ...
  • You may be able to make do with D3200-3400 paired with a solid lens. You can get them for 200-300$. It's a crop body so the nice part is the lenses are a bit cheaper or you get a useful 'reach' of ...
  • Use faster and/or higher quality lenses(since you're using 75/2.8 Tamron, a Nikkor 50-105/1.4D-G would make a huge difference). Obviously since you're using an older body it wouldn't make sense to ...
  • I agree with D3300. Perhaps even D3200? It has a generation older processor and as a result a stop worse ISO. It also has a frame slower fps.
  • Replied in FT1 testing
    I was able to resolve the issue. I reset the camera and somehow it fixed whatever was wrong. Now all the Nikon lenses work as intended in all the main modes M, A, S, and P. Other lenses are ...
  • I think GX85 is a solid camera though I wasn't thrilled with the kit lenses it came with(they are ok with flash photography and close up street photography). I like to shoot landscapes and ...
  • Replied in FT1 testing
    I have tried multiple DX lenses like 18-55, 55-200 both VR and non VR, 18-140? VR, etc... Essentially the lenses more or less work but only in the mode with P+flash including non-Nikon lenses like ...
  • Replied in FT1 testing
    Thank you for replying. For some odd reason even lenses on the compatibility list are not working for me with auto focus. They do not work in A, S, P modes at all. They work with the mode which ...
  • Replied in FT1 testing
    Is there a reason why a lens like 55-200mm VR DX lens would not auto focus with FT1 in common modes like P, A, etc but works fine in 'work of art' mode which is a feather icon? My J5 is still V1.00 ...
  • With 3 extenders. Wedding/engagement photographer. Same 2 adapter combo and lens for both as previous post.
  • Here's a solid picture I took with my Nikon Nikkor 50mm f1.4 Non-AI lens using Fotasy Nikon F to C adapter plus C to NX Mini adapter I got from Ramir73 on Ebay. The second image was taken with 3 C ...
  • You are right. There were only 3 lenses made and almost no one has the 3rd one (17mm/1.8?). I got the 9mm/3.5 and 9-27mm lenses. They are very good and the image quality is excellent for such a ...
  • I got a couple NX MINI to C adapters from Ramir73 on Ebay . The first one I got(~40$) was pretty solid. I did have trouble achieving infinity with some older C mount lenses like Angenieux 25/0.95 ...
  • Has anyone experimented with 1"(16mm) C mount lenses? I have had ok results although it's a bit disappointing you can't use flash with manual lenses....Nikon 1 camera at least allows for the flash ...
  • NX Mini is a great camera. I like using it with my C mount lenses. With a $40 adapter from Ramir73 on Ebay(to bypass the no lens error), I was able to use old and new C mount lenses ...
  • Beautiful pictures! Have you tried any faster lenses with 0.85-0.95 aperture? I really liked my cheap Chinese 25mm/1.4 lens i had but I broke it tinkering with it. What are your thoughts on Kern ...
  • Way late to the party however NX Mini only has one adapter to C mount sold by an Ebay userRamir73. It hacks the lens not attached issue and brings the lens into proper flange distance. Initially ...
  • Thanks for the responses. FT-1 or another such adapter might be something I will look into. I have Angenieux/Navitar/Navitron 25mm 0.95 lenses which produce nice images and no vignetting on my NX ...
  • Thanks everyone. :-D That sarcasm went right over my head. I was double checking 1V1 and realized Nikon released 'update' to J5 in 2017. Nikon should be embarrassed by their terrible support. I ...
  • That's encouraging to hear. In your experience what does 'shortly' mean in Nikon-speak? I ended up buying a J5 body only, hoping to use it with my Angenieux and other fast lenses and was very ...
