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?
Regardless of the camera format that I’ve owned I’ve always preferred to use zoom lenses for still photography. Since I now shoot exclusively with the Nikon 1 system I thought it may be fun to write an article on my pick of lenses for an ‘unofficial’ Nikon 1 trinity. Continue reading Zoom lenses to create a Nikon 1 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 70-300 mm 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
Over the past few months I’ve had a number of readers contact me outside of this blog to ask some questions about shooting video with Nikon 1 gear. So, I thought a short article with some answers to the most common questions people ask me may be of interest to some folks. Continue reading Nikon 1 video tips
Capturing landscape images can be a challenge when using many cameras with smaller sensors like the Nikon 1 system or M4/3. Rather than go into specific details with a step-by-step approach this article is intended to provide some general thoughts on post-processing of landscape images taken with small sensor cameras.

If you’re like me you likely have captured hundreds, if not thousands, of images of sea gulls in flight. It’s not that these birds are all that photogenic, but practicing bird-in-flight images with gulls is a good way to maintain our skill level. Continue reading Practicing bird-in-flight images with gulls
This short article outlines some of the reasons why I love shooting with one of the worst-rated cameras on the market…the Nikon 1 V2. Continue reading Why I love shooting with the Nikon 1 system
Since, at the present time, there are no native Nikon 1 macro lenses available, many owners of Nikon 1 gear use extension tubes instead. For many folks their decision comes down to using extension tubes with either the Nikon 1 30-110 mm f/3.8-5.6 or the Nikon 1 CX 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 lenses.
I recently purchased a set of Movo Extension Tubes for Nikon 1 and I thought it may be interesting to compare the ‘magnification effect’ of the various Movo Extension Tubes with these two lenses when mounted on my Nikon 1 V2’s. 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
