Our friends at Photography Life have just published a new article that I wrote the website, “When Photographing Birds at 60 FPS Becomes the New Normal.” Continue reading When Photographing Birds at 60 FPS Becomes the New Normal on PL
I’ve had a few readers inquire about buying or selling Nikon 1 gear. I thought it may be useful to publish a short article on this subject so readers can share their experiences and ideas about the best ways to buy or sell Nikon 1 gear. Continue reading Buying or Selling Nikon 1 Gear
It certainly has been interesting to hear from a wide range of Nikon 1 owners during the past few months since the Nikon 1 system was discontinued. I’ve received numerous emails from many existing owners who are adding to their Nikon 1 kits as a future proofing strategy. Perhaps surprisingly, I’ve also been getting quite a few emails from people who have only recently discovered the Nikon 1 system and are buying into it while new and used gear is still available. Since a number of people have been asking me what I’ve been up to with my gear, I thought it would be timely to provide readers with a Nikon 1 kit update of my own.

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. Putting all of that aside, if we look at recent CIPA statistics and market segmentation, the idea that the Nikon DL series will replace the Nikon 1 system appears illogical.
One of our regular readers, William Jones, suggested the idea for this short article. Basically it is to ask Nikon 1 owners to give us suggestions on what new Nikon 1 lens(es) should be developed for the Nikon 1 system. Continue reading Suggestions for new Nikon 1 lenses
