Hi I've seen a J2 and 10-30mm kit lens for a crazy steal of a price of £85 in a local shop. It's used but comes with 2 year repair warranty and will be just as a carry everywhere snapshot camera. In the review of the J1 I read about the poor auto ISO behaviour where it chooses a stop compensation in ISO an one in tandem with s/speed, often meaning it would not up the ISO enough to provide a quick enough s/speed in dim light. You could not in 2012 set a minimal shutter speed for auto ISO like...

I'd like to get a real wide angle lens for my J2, but I can't afford any. So I've been looking on "the bay" and researching through old threads here to get an idea of what to get. Here's my understanding right now: I need a wide angle converter which will fit on the kit lens' 40.5mm filter thread. I can use a step-up or step-down converter if the wide converter lens filter is of a different size. I shouldn't get one that's too big or heavy, as it might damage the Nikkor's plastic zoom...
Hi all anyone used the seemingly now fashionable LED clustered lighting for video work? I bought a J2 last year for the fast AF in video (it's certainly impressive) I found it struggled in low light to focus either for stills or video. I'm looking at a supplementary light: a) so the AF can find something to focus on b) to make the ISO (a lot?) lower anyone have any experience in use, hardware and amount of LEDS in the unit, and battery life. I know, I know.. I'm not asking a lot.....
Hi Has anyone disassembled a J3? Ultimately, I would like to access the shutter button, so I can bring 3 wires out for a cabled remote shutter release. Yes, I know the J3 can be remote controlled with a WiFi adapter. No, I cannot use 2.4 GHz at all with the J3, as it will interfere and de-sense another nearby 2.4 G device. Yes, I'm familiar with working with SMD. Yes, I know the V3 can use the ML-L3 IR remote. The V3 is heavier, and I have a strict weight limit for the...

I bought into the Nikon 1 system a while ago when Amazon had one of those super sales of the day that offered the J2 plus the 10-30mm. and 30-110mm. zooms very cheaply. An impulse buy! I considered it kind of a fun diversion from my DX photography, but not much more. Then I received the 18.5mm. lens as a gift and found it to be fanstastic for low light work. Finally, I talked myself into getting the 70-300mm. zoom, based on the quality of images I saw on Flickr taken by that lens. I have...
Anyone done this I am doing some video and stills (not with J2) at an event on Monday.. Just thought .. my J2 has an interval timer. I could set up a Small jpeg size 1936 x 1296 (similar to HD frame size) and after cropping, make a time lapse movie. trying to work out frame frequency and resultant move length over the day, now.. Any insights etc appreciated --There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
Currently I have the Olympus XZ-1 which I find very slow in focus tracking. Nights of research have pointed me to the Nikon 1 when it comes to focus tracking speed. Despite the smaller sensor size compared to the m43 or APS-C, seems like its still the king of focus tracking, is that true? So I will be mainly taking pictures of my son who is now 15 months old, he is very active. Occasional nice portrait will be nice as well. I found the J2 for around 300USD, and J3 and S2 goes for 450USD. Is...
Hi Guys, I was wondering, if any one know, is there any Adapter with Aperture Ring for Nikon 1 system. I already have an Adapter for my Nikon 1, But it dont have Aperture Ring. The Idea which I have in my mind, is using any Nikon F mount lens, specially AF, in which you cant control the Aperture on lens. instead of using FT1 mount. Looking for a cheap solution :P
