Where does Nikon 1 fit in the future?

From time to time I enjoy letting my mind wander…much of that is due to my advancing age and an inability to mentally focus of course. 🙂

Recently I was pondering the future of the Nikon 1 product line, as well as having other random thoughts pop into my head.

It has been over 15 years since I worked in corporate marketing and strategy but I still enjoy putting those hats on again, if only from a purely speculative position. Continue reading Where does Nikon 1 fit in the future?

The basic question is, “When using Movo Extension Tubes with Nikon 1, which set up works best?” Continue reading Using Movo Extension Tubes with Nikon 1
