  • Nice pictures. I think a lot of us are going to have to look closer to home for our photographic opportunities for the foreseeable future. You’ve got us off to a good start!
  • Yes, I bought the V1 almost exclusively to shoot monochrome but I still use raw. I have the camera set to BW so I see the scene in monochrome in the EVF or on the screen. It helps to get a better ...
  • Created discussion thread A bleak day but signs of hope
    I'm stuck working at home now but we're still allowed to go outside and for the sake of my sanity I'm taking walks when I can, of course with my Nikon 1 kit. Yesterday was a particularly bleak ...
  • I can't claim credit for the idea. Others have been doing this for a while but I'm happy that I finally decided to take the plunge and order the V1. #2 is my favourite too. It's quite close to my ...
  • Nice shots (and nice dogs!). I’ve been a fan of Nikon 1 for a while now, but I hadn’t held a V1 until mine arrived on Thursday. As soon as I picked it up I was very impressed with the way it felt, ...
  • Created discussion thread First BW shots with my "new" V1
    A recent post on this form by Martin Velky prompted me to put into action a plan I've had to satisfy my nostalgia for my early days of film photography, mainly shooting Tri-X. I bought an ...
  • Hi Bob. I’m quite a new contributor to this forum but I’ve been reading the posts for a while and I’ve always enjoyed yours. I just wanted to join others in sending my best wishes. I hope you’re ...
  • I have this lens but I haven’t used it a lot with Nikon 1. I’ve used it with a D5500 and a D500. It does show a bit of purple fringing but nothing excessive, and easy to clean up in post. I like ...
  • Replied in nikon V1 BW
    You convinced me! I’ve just ordered a V1 that I’ll use in much the same way as you plan to. I’m really looking forward to trying it.
  • Replied in nikon V1 BW
    Nice. I’m very tempted to buy a V1 to accompany my V2 and J5, specifically for BW. You can pick them up for very reasonable prices now. I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for my early days in ...
  • A great shot, and a great advert for Nikon 1. Well done!
  • There are quite a lot of them where I live. They are fairly shy so they keep their distance (the reach of the V2 with 70-300 CX definitely helps). When we're out for a walk in the evening we often ...
  • Thanks. These deer are natives of southeast Asia but there is quite a large population in parts of the United Kingdom, all descended from animals that escaped from captivity. Below is a shot where ...
  • February has been a frustrating month, at least photography-wise. The series of Atlantic storms that happened to coincide with weekends have made getting out a bit difficult. I did manage to get ...
  • I certainly wouldn't say it was lazy. The raw vs jpeg thing's about as old as digital photography and I can certainly see the arguments for both. One thing that I don't think there's any doubt ...
  • I know what you mean Paul, we can end up spending a lot of time on PP. There's some satisfaction in getting a decent result from an image that wasn't the best in the first place, but I'd rather be ...
  • That's a real shame. I've seen some great shots that you've taken with that lens. I hope Sigma can do something about it. David
  • I guess this isn’t the first Nikon 1 post-processing thread, but as a relative newcomer to the system I thought it might be interesting to let people know where I am after a couple of months ...
  • Lovely shots. I’ve never managed to photograph a kingfisher myself but I hear one has been seen on the river nearby. I’ll have to take a look when we get some reasonable weather.
  • Thanks Paul. It's a great forum and I certainly intend to post more. Yes, those focal lengths would produce some interesting images! I have a few post-processing steps with different software and ...
