  • Replied in Miss my V1....
    I had the V1, J2 and 10-30 original and PD and found the J2 (same sensor as V1) was far easier for travel, esp if used only with a single lens, and had the benefit of a USB charger for the battery ...
  • Tord, get well soon, take it easy. J just recovered from COVID and have been 'down' the last month, things are better now thank the lord. Remember rest is important, I hope things get better soon! Ed
  • It's good to know our Health System works Tord, although in decline since then i think! But that is a Government thing... staff are superb. It's an idea Paul, thanks. What I do like about the 10-30 ...
  • No I just shoot jpeg and do no processing. I usually use P mode although might have used Night Scenery mode as well here. I think the Night Scenery mode under-exposed quite a bit so I think just P ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon J2/10-30PD Evening Shots
    I took these tonight here in Edinburgh on an evening walk around 2200 (camera clock is an hour ahead for some reason, need to change) - already quite dark. The J2 and 10-30 PD combo is great, esp. ...
  • I see they were taken with the 70-300, some at the full 300, great images! Am I to assume (given the sensor multiplication factor) this lens is capable of achieving just over 800mm in 35mm terms? ...
  • Replied in Use of FT-1
    Thanks for the replies. I did assume the lens would be large and bulky and probably not worth the effort realistically but was grasping at the chance I could be wrong. I will look at the 6.7-13 ...
  • Created discussion thread Use of FT-1
    Unlike most FT-1 users I would like to go the other way in length. I'm looking to achieve 28mm to 35mm using the FT-1 and a Prime to possibly get a more reliable lens than the native 10mm (and ...
  • Well, I'll likely get the 6.7-13 at some future stage and probably will pair that with the V1 as a more 'serious' option than the J2/10-30 PD VR. I like the V1 a lot, but for my current use ...
  • Created user review thread Great travel companion
    I recently took this on a short trip, I also own the V1 (same sensor) and found the J2 ideal when the V1 seems cumbersome for some quick shots. In fact I prefer using the J2 in regular use. Only ...
  • The Boston Globes 6.1 megapixel DCS 560's (Canon) back in 1998 were 30,000 USD apiece, they also had DCS 520's must have been 15,000 USD+

    Back in 2000 the (consumer) D30 (Canon) was I believe 2000...

  • Started earlier with multiple faults on the D2H (mine had the infamous Err error on first exposure), this was after the (imho) rock solid reliability of the D1, D1H and D1X - had the D1X in Iraq ...
  • Today, for me the perfect sweet point is 10 MP, lower than 5 MP needs compromises (but is workable), 8 MP is great and just about right. However I don't crop and definitely don't pixel peep. nor ...
  • Thank you. Was with my first Bridge camera, the FZ2, which actually was just a firmware updated FZ1, so effectively the first of the Lumix Zoom range, now nearly twenty years old. Really what made ...
  • Masha, my friend, 2004 with a Panasonic Lumix FZ2.. untouched/unsharpened straight from the camera 2 megapixel jpeg (actually 1.9MP). Ever since then I have had a healthy disrespect for large numbers!
  • I'm new to the N1 system but I find the 10-30 PD superb. The 10-30 reminds me of the Canon 28-70/3.5-4.5 (AFD) EF MKII - a lens (likely dates from around 1990) that costs peanuts but performs well ...
  • Is that so? I just purchased a mint J2 body (as an everyday camera to save wear on the V1) for a mere $50 - and am quite impressed by the build quality. I hope it remains reliable! I could have ...
  • Well, it is all interesting (and valuable) information. However, I am glad at least the 10-30 PD has this sort of reliability, it's not an expensive lens, but the performance is certainly good. The ...
  • I own a Nikon V1 and a 10-30 original lens, no issues with it, but on the assumption it will fail at some stage, and to have a spare I have just purchased a "PD" version for $60-00 used (in the ...
  • Well I am British, based in Moscow, so in my youth was more familiar with the Ricoh GR 1, a 28mm compact I used back in the late 90's along with Velvia, unfortunately not too familiar with Soviet ...
