  • As an alternative to consider... I like to keep my camera handy, so I hang it from my shoulder. I then use a cheap case (with a good belt mounting option) for a compact camera that fit's my largest ...
  • Not a fixed lens, but given the forum you're asking in, the Nikon 1 J5 & 6.7-13mm lens is a fantastic choice. Probably the smallest, highest quality choice. Considerably smaller than the EOS M + ...
  • Are you sure the money is there and it's not as scarce as Nikon pretends it to be? Read Thomas Stirr's excellent article on the latest year end CIPA figures for camera sales. That's a nearly 80% ...
  • I just spent a month living in a small motorhome with 5 people. Very cramped! My gear was: Nikon 1 J5 with 10-100 non-PD, 6.7-13 & 70-300. Great coverage for 18-810mm in decent light. Sony RX100 Mk ...
  • It's excellent as long as you're aware of a few caveats: (1) the limitation of a 1" sensor and the relatively slow zoom lenses in low light
  • You pretty much use your cameras the same as I do. Short answer, get the Mk III, you'll love it! Yes, works fine with this camera too. Be aware that your DOF effects are reduced considerably with a ...
  • If you want a fast lens with VR for the Nikon 1 system, it doesn't exist. It sounds like you value a compact option so I would recommend either waiting for the Nikon DL 18-50 (which may or may not ...
  • The Nikon 1 lenses are smaller, lighter, and mostly cheaper. Since we seem to be comparing to Fuji here, I've made up two sets of three lenses (+ a Fuji TC) to cover from wide to super telephoto, ...
  • No. I said "I haven't been paying attention to the used market". Don't attribute words to me that I did not use. If the OP can get $500 for it (you say they're listed for $500, but are they selling ...
  • If you can get a great price for your gear now, then sure. I haven't been paying attention to the used market, but I suspect used NX gear isn't worth much anymore anyway. In that case, most of the ...
  • This is a common complaint with the 1" sensor cameras, and to an extent it's true. However, I have a few counter-arguments to this. Firstly, as André has shown below, the VR is excellent in the ...
  • Your argument that the further up the wealth & lifestyle ladder people get the more out of touch people are with the reality of the environment they live in is an over generalization. There are...

  • Lovely photos. What are you using for light? Natural light? Flash?
  • With a zoom lens? No. For a prime lens, arguments could be made in favour of the Nikon Coolpix A or the Ricoh GR. I'd still favour the RX100 because: (1) better video (2) tiltable rear screen
  • Good point. Since the RX10 (original) launched, I've used it with the RX1 as my primary camera kit, usually leaving my DSLR kit at home. An example is this canoe trip in Northern Saskatchewan . My ...
  • Since I'm already banished to bed without supper, here are some photos of said leopard to give some perspective on focal lengths and why it's nice to have a long lens. Click to see full-size ...
  • Replied in Samsung 50-150
    One bit of wisdom I've acquired the hard way. If your camera looks like it should be able to take a photo, but is unresponsive and you cannot figure out what the problem is ... check that this ...
  • FWIW, I was in Africa for a couple weeks last month. I did do 3 days of safari from a Land Cruiser in the Maasai Mara and a one day gorilla trek in Volcanoes NP in Rwanda (amongst many other ...
  • No, that's what the markings on the focusing ring are for. Set to 2m that way, much easier. Never need to check focus in the EVF/rear screen that way, you know exactly what distance you're focused at.
  • 12mm on the NX series is a piece of cake for focusing for street photography. Use the old street photographers' trick of zone focus . Easy with such a wide lens. Focus to 2m/6'. Set to f/5.6. Now ...
