What thoughts on a premium quality Prime Lens on this unit? Has anyone experience in boosting Lens quality to something extreme. Sensor combination might be interesting.

I received what appears to be a  like new J3 or rarely used with a 10-30 mm lens that works in every  menu mode possible but in picture taking mode the screen does not show a live preview. The shooting info appears in blk and white but the screen stays black as though the lens cap is still on. If I set the lens on 30mm and point it at a bright light it lets in enough light to barely show on the screen and also allows the shutter to snap an image with the flash going off (auto mode).In...

I just ordered a M42-N1 adapter to use old vintage lenses on my Nikon J3, and I wanted to know this: the N1 lenses are smaller than the M42, which means that the aperture blade and everything is smaller. If I use a M42, 50mm F1.8 wide open, will it capture more light than a N1 18.5mm F1.8 wide open, for example? I thought: since the M42 lens diameter itself is wider than the N1, It would capture more light for the smaller sensor (comparing to 35mm film), so the F1.8 in the M42 50mm would be...

Hi! I just bought a used Nikon 1 J3 with the 10-30, 30-110 and the 10mm 2.8 lenses. I wasn't aware of the known issues of the zoom lenses, but, to be honest, I bought it specially for using as a second camera with the pancake 10mm anyway. So my question is: are there any issues with the 10mm I should worry about? Most issues I saw with the other two appears to be related with the zoom function. About the zoom lenses: both are working fine. Is there any tips to make them last longer? The 10-30...

Do you think Nikon will do a firmware update for J5 the way they did for J3 to allow use of magnification tool when in full manual mode and using a fully manual lens(e.g. C mount adapted lens)? So far there's only one workaround by buying an expensive(relative to the cost of the camera) chip adapter from Russia. " Does Nikon plan to update J5 firmware to allow for magnification tool to be used with fully manual adapted lenses? It would be nice to get a little help when focusing C mount...

I am going on at least a 2 month trip with my wife to Northern Spain next month. We will be traveling very light. She will take her V2, with the 10 pancake, the pancake 10-30 zoom, and the 55-200 (with the F-t1 adaptor). To keep things simple, I will also take a V2, with the UWA zoom, the 18.5 prime, and the CX 70-300. (We need the long lenses for the corridas). I will also take the Ricoh GRDIV for street (I ALWAYS take a Ricoh for street). I want to bring another N 1 cameras as a back-up. I...

Hi all, I made an impulse buy on the 'bay, and have a J3/10-30zoom on the way to upgrade the wife's J2 with (The J2/10-30zoom plus an underwater casing will be going up for sale). Having read around a few reviews, the general opinion seems to be that the extra 4mp on the sensor pixel count doesn't do all that much for image quality, but focus speed, buffer and some other features are a noticeably improved, along with ergonomics (mode dial relocation). Does anyone here have anything to add to...

hey all. I just picked up a Nikon 1 J3 with Nikkor 10-100mm lens. It was working perfectly, turned it off and come home a few hours later and it started to give me issues. Now when I'm trying to take a pic, the screen is black unless I'm zoomed in to 100mm. If I zoom out it gradually goes black. I cant take any pictures unless its directly pointing at a light source at 100mm. I know there was a recall but its with the 10-30mm lens, that I don't have. help? :{

What are the best mobile Apps?Hi all, I am a new J3 owner, and want opinions or suggestions for the best ones. I have installed several system, antivirus, antitheft apps, so far CCleaner, McAfee, Malwarebytes.  All 3 I use on my PC and have worked great to clean it from viruses and trojans or whatever.  I also have CM Security and Android assistant and Device Manager. I have used Avast, 360, Esset, DFNDR, all good and several others but decided not to keep them. PS: just hated Android pay,...
