    Nikon I seem to have lost the focus on my Nikon 1?

    Sorry for the lag... we had a pretty decent snow storm come thru here — and it's fricking cold! Thanks, Luke and H-n-T. It took me a devil long time to find that 'autofocus menu'?! I was in the AF-A and switched to AF-S. I even found 'Exposure Compensation'... The body came from Japan a...

    Nikon I seem to have lost the focus on my Nikon 1?

    Ya, ya... Troy. I understand. Guys, 'nother stoopid question; "Where's the manual focus?" My little 18.5 lens has a knurled ring around the front, but will not turn. This is a V1, maybe the later versions had manual focus? It's a wonderful little camera but I've rarely stepped out of the...

    Nikon I seem to have lost the focus on my Nikon 1?

    The title pretty much covers it... For some unknown reason, it's like I am shooting thru frosted glass. I love the camera because it's quick and easier than my big Canon. I have fiddled with settings and cannot come up with a camera fix ..and photoshop is not much help. Is there a very...

    Nikon Single photo output required—don't know how?

    When I take a shot I get a whole bunch of them? I get like 5ea. I cannot find a setting where I only get a single image output. I am afraid of taking 10-12 shots... A new board I just got from Hawaii. Thanks. Jim

    Nikon New issue with v1 ...ghost bars

    I'm slightly embarrassed.. Luke and John, I suspect you're spot on. It must have been the aperture-of-the-moment that conflicted with the Fluro lamps.. both the the 8 foot tubes above the bench and the little one behind the umbrella. Whew! I did not want to have to send the v1 away...

    Nikon New issue with v1 ...ghost bars

    Thanks Guys.. I don't know how to find/post EXIF data... but here's an image. ...the Raw image is also posted at wetstuff.com/Banding.NEF ..it downloads on my Mac rather that opening within this window. Here's a shot a few days ago.. albeit cleaned up a bit. ...both shot on a workbench...

    Nikon New issue with v1 ...ghost bars

    My Canon 7D collects dust as this v1 has become my favorite camera. About a week ago, I noticed there were alternating light/dark, horizontal areas in my images that divide the visible image into about five zones ..from the top: light/dark/light/dark/light? I went to shoot some product today...

    Nikon Setting brightness on V1

    Right you are Walt .. only 3 choices. I was expecting the numeral in the center to increase/decrease..? I shot a pic and it was too brite for my taste on the + side. I will play with Neutral and Negative brightness to find my champion. By lens.. I did mean the picture vs. the display on...

    Nikon Setting brightness on V1

    Walt, No.. I think this is for the lens not the display. The other sliders on this menu are adjustable... Jim

    Nikon Setting brightness on V1

    .. I am unable to adjust it for a custom setting? I can get the + side to highlight in yellow.. but the yellow arrow remains on the - side ..and the number in the center (0) is unaffected by no matter what I touch? * ...'maybe in aperture priority mode it locks you out? I am always late to...

    Nikon 18.5mm Versatility

    Sue, New to this cam and lens.. How are you getting near-macro? I thought this lens was only good down to about 8"/20cm? ...post production? Thanks. (based on what I see, I am excited about this combo.) Jim

    Nikon How do you save ..then access custom settings..

    .. for sharpness, saturation, etc. I have found it in the menu 'Custom Picture Control' ..made some tweaks, now saved in something called Standard C1 ...but do not know how to access C1?! I got David Busch's Field Guide, but it's more an expanded brochure rather than a fast path to quality...
