Nice shot. Looks like the 5N did a pretty good job in a tough spot.http://willems.zenfolio.com/img/s11/v32/p1346987106-4.jpg
Minimal adjustments, the V1 nailed a tough exposure like this without any problems (SB-5N bounced on the facade of the house the left/behind me)
- V1, 400 ISO
- 2.8/10 @ f/2.8
- SB-5N flash used
It looks good. Which lens did you use?First image with my V1 (cropped).
Not really pleased with it, but I had active VR set. I think the standard setting would have helped to produce a sharper image. My "snap" shots bear this out.
Might also help if I were to read the manual

Great little system. I can see eventually the Nikon1 growing into a system that could replace D-SLR's in the future once sensor tech improves even more.
I think Nikon actually made the right choice in sensor size for long term system growth. maybe 20 years or more but eventually this system will become "pro" in quality and features.
I can't wait to see some of the big gun stuff.Thanks John!
I'm really pleased with the V1 for a portable long lens setup so far :smile:
I hope to try it out with my longer and heavier tele options soon - 70-200 VR and 300/2.8 VR with 1.7/2.0 TCs...
One thing that surprised me was that the AF speed is so dependent on good light - outdoors in good light the phase-detect AF is very fast, but indoors with the slow kit lenses it falls back on sluggish contrast-detect AF. My Panasonic G3 with the superb 25/1.4 was much faster at acquiring AF targets than the V1!
At this point, I consider the V1 an outdoor only camera. Perhaps I need to consider the new 18.5/1.8 :smile:

Hey John,I think I might have to get one.
I really like it too. Once the ultra wide arrives, I'm all set. :smile:
Hi Mark.Hey John,
I picked up one of the Cameta 30-110 refurbs on ebay and it's a great little lens, mine came looking like new with caps and the hood. I also got a refurb 10mm but that went back, maybe I got a bad one but IMHO it wasn't as good as the kit lens.
I'm waiting on the ultra wide too, 6.7-13, 18.5 and 30-110 will make a great little kit, then I'm waiting for the RX-100 sensor in the V3! :biggrin:
