    Nikon What are your thoughts on what to do with a NIB Nikon Coolpix L320?

    Due to circumstances I'll describe another day I've recently become the owner of a NIB Nikon Coolpix L320 compact. What are the general thoughts on it? I haven't had any Nikon products to play with in our household before...

    Eye/Face Detect Test - Canon EOS R, Fuji X-T3, Nikon Z6, Sony a9, Sony a7 III and Sony a6400

    Nikon Nikon Homecoming

    After a long look at getting back to my Nikon roots, I think the Df is where I will land latter this year. The cameras dials and controls suit me now that I am using Fuji full time. Fuji XT3 will remain my main platform but I have too many Nikon legacy lens and I really miss the experience of...

    Nikon Micro-Nikkor 105 F2.8 ED IF VR- not a good first impression.

    I've used Micro-Nikkors since 1978. The Micro-Nikkor-P 55/3.5 on Kodachrome 25 loaded into a Nikon F2a "defined Sharp". I was loaned the "Micro-Nikkor 105 F2.8 ED IF VR" (too funny, Nikon just loves acronyms. ED means Extra Dollars). My friend with a D850 felt the lens "was just not sharp". I...

    Nikon Reliability of Modern AF/VR lenses.

    Epic fail? 70-200s of all makes among least reliable lenses As mentioned on the Leica forum, my friend's relatively new, but out of warranty, Nikkor 70~200 VR-II lens was not giving sharp results and the Nikon estimate is $600 for a repair. I've done some searches on common problems- the VR...

    nikon Z6 image thread

    I finally received my Z6 from Nikon on Tuesday, Nov 20. Had a chance to get out there and shoot with it today. Columbus Zoo was the destination. Got some birding in. Indoor, high ISO, so take that into consideration. I wanted to see what the JPG could do. So I shot Neutral picture control, then...

    Dead Cameras Walking - Shooting the Nikon V1 and J5!

    About a month ago I noticed Nikon 1 fire sales popping up and even though I had tried the V1 several years ago and initially disliked the system, I had the urge to give it another try. I've been messing with the Nikon 1 raw files and noticed they clean up nicely using presets I've crafted over...

    Metabones Speedbooster Nikon to BMPCC

    Hello, Having an issue with the Metabones Speedbooster and was curious if any other users experienced this. When mounting manual Nikkors to the Speedbooster I make sure to set the adapter to 7 per the instructions and close the iris on my lens (f/22). When clicking the lens into place on the...

    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...

    Underwater Ptographer Resurrection

    i used to be an avid underwater photographer about 10years ago. I had a D300 and shot with Nikon lenses: 105mm2.8D; 60mm 2.8D; fisheye 16mm 2.8; 12-24 4G ED. If I got the D500 would the lenses I have, compromise the new technology of the D500 and how much? I will eventually get newer lenses.

    Nikon 1 Issue

    Salve I have a relative new nikon one with the 11-27.5 lense. I have the following issue. When I zoom in or out to the max the display goes black and the iso number on the bottom is flashing. That is happening in normal daylight. Is that normal ?

    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 L20 does near IR

    Some years ago I bought a little Nikon L20 camera that had been converted to record only near infrared, which is just outside the range of human vision. I haven't used it much since I completed the school project for which I'd purchased the camera, but today I pulled it out to take it on my bike...

    Nikon Coolpix P330

    I’ve been using the Nikon Coolpix P330 for a few days. I’m starting to like it. Here are a few photos: It’s been a while since I’ve owned a camera this small. It’s nice to just throw it in a pocket and head out for a walk. I really like the 24-120 zoom range, and getting that range...

    Nikon shuts down Nikon 1 System

    The big fail: Nikon shuts down the Nikon 1 system - 43 Rumors I'm still amazed how they handled this as badly as they did. Maybe one inch sensors ILCs just don't fit in anywhere. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what they do new on the mirrorless front.

    Some background: When photography went digital, I had trouble adjusting; I tried some of the earlier cameras, but neither results nor handling were convincing. I had been a Nikon shooter for most of my film days, and the likes of the F-801s (N8008s in the US, if I recall right) and later the...

    Nikon A / Ricoh GR / Fuji X70 with the RX100 just to confuse things

    With the introduction of the X70 I'm looking at these again. I have Nikon FX gear and a Panasonic GX85. I'd like something smaller than the GX85. Grab and go, stick in my jacket / cargo pants pocket. But not really street shooting grabs so AF is important but I think any of these should work...

    A damselfly on my finger - a close-up/macro video

    Yesterday I recorded a video of me trying to pick up a damselfly with my finger from an aquatic plant and eventually succeeding. The damselfly stayed for several minutes on my finger and allowed me to record it from up close. Recorded with Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6.

I must say that it is so easy to use the Nikons in commander mode. So convenient compared to the manual...
