  • Created discussion thread Nikon booth at the PhotoPlus Expo 2016
    Nikon, Canon and Sony had the largest booths at the PhotoPlus Expo in New York City a couple weeks ago.  Nikon must have more confidence in its new 360 degree VR action camera then in the 1 ...
  • Replied in PhotoPlus Expo
    I attended the PhotoPlus Expo in New York City this past weekend.  I went to the Nikon exhibit booth (very large booth, on par with Canon) and asked if they had any brochures for the Nikon 1 ...
  • Thanks for pointing out the newest Sony RX100 has a tilting LCD and a pop up EVF.  I had no idea.  My brother in-law has an older RX100 that has neither.  I'm very impressed with how Sony responds ...
  • Replied in I agree
    I totally agree about the J5.  My sister in-law just asked me for a recommendation for a good smallish camera.  I told her if size and pocketability are the main concerns then the Sony RX100 is a ...
  • Thanks txsizzler.  My daughter took a photo with her phone also.  It was an opportunity to show her how a camera has better DOF than a phone. Regards, Warren http://www.pbase.com/wtang
  • Replied in Not anymore
    I was hungry too when I took the photo... but not after. ;-) Regards, Warren http://www.pbase.com/wtang
  • Created discussion thread Owls up close
    Well, butter pound cake owls.  :-)  My daughter was making these mini pound cakes for high school Baking Club meeting.  They're almost too good to eat... almost. ;-)  Photo taken with my J5 and ...
  • Did you try cleaning the contacts on the lens, and maybe even the contacts on the camera? Sometimes dirty contacts will prevent the lens from communicating with the camera properly. Also, the ...
  • Lovely set!  Where is this? Regards, Warren http://www.pbase.com/wtang
  • The J5 is a nice little camera that punches above it's weight.  I was perched on the rocks that night with a spindly little Velbon Maxi 343e tripod and my pocket-sized J5.  I was surround by a ...
  • I'm hoping for a V4 too.  Even if I don't end up buying one, a V4 would mean the N1 lives on.  Otherwise my J5 is a dead end. Regards, Warren http://www.pbase.com/wtang
  • Yes, I'm growing to love my little J5.  It's a very capable little camera.  I have the silver and black version, and the tiny size along with retro good looks always attracts attention and ...
  • Yes, I tend to agree. My DSLR and lens combo weighs 3-5 lbs. whereas my J5 weighs less than 1 lb. In a pinch, the J5 with the 10-30mm PD lens even fits into my pants pocket. In good light, the IQ ...
  • I went out to Brooklyn Bridge Park with my little J5 instead of my DSLR tonight.  It was a first.  I usual take my bigger camera when going out for a photo excursion.  In hindsight, I'm glad I did ...
  • The title sounds like it's trying to sway public opinion. That's what I find odd. I mean, has DPR ever written other articles with titles such as "Think this new Canon XXX is boring/crappy? Well...

  • PeaceKeeper, I don't live under a rock, so I fully realize that iPhones are very popular phones. That wasn't the point of my question. I'm asking why there is an article (this article) trying to...

  • Why is there a need for an news article like this to "sell" people on the new iPhone 7? There hasn't been a similar article to try to and "sell" people on the merits of any other smartphone. Why...

  • Thanks for the comments everyone. :-)  So far I'm really liking the J5.  The new sensor definitely has lower noise than my J1... it's noticeable even at low ISO.  As for keeping my old J1, I'm ...
