Recently I’ve had quite a few readers contact me at the office asking me what I think about the idea of Nikon relaunching the Nikon 1 product line using a larger sensor in a CX-mount body. The big question is whether this is feasible or not. Continue reading Larger sensor CX body?
In September 2016 it will be 5 years since Nikon launched the Nikon 1 system and it still remains much maligned and misunderstood. Continue reading Nikon 1 maligned and misunderstood
The launch of the Nikon DL series of cameras has caused a significant amount of angst among many Nikon 1 owners. Many internet chat rooms seem to be brimming with opinions on why the Nikon DL product line will replace the Nikon 1 system. Many of these viewpoints are expressed from a photographer’s perspective in terms of specific camera features and potential image quality.

Continue reading Zoom lenses to create a Nikon 1 Holy Trinity
Capturing images of geese in flight is often how many photographers begin to develop their BIF technique. Geese make ideal subjects since they are large, slower flying birds. Their flight patterns tend to be in reasonably straight lines and they often announce their approach with a chorus of honking, allowing us to get prepared to take some photographs of them.

It is always important to consider your style of shooting and lens availability before selecting an interchangeable lens camera. Sometimes manufacturers make it difficult to choose lenses even after you’ve made your initial camera body purchase. This is the case for Nikon 1 owners. They have a few different ‘all-in-one’ zoom options to consider. This article discusses some considerations when choosing a Nikon 1 all-in-one zoom lens.

I must confess that I made a big mistake when I bought the Nikon 1 CX 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. I should have bought one at lot sooner! Continue reading Why I love the Nikon 1 CX 70-300 f/4.5-5.6
