Nikon 1 – the little camera that still can

“Nikon 1 – the little camera that still can” is by Thanos Deligiannis: Mirrorless cameras are here to stay, whether DSLR people like myself like them or not. For me, the slr way is the only way that makes sense when it comes to taking pictures; on film, CCD or CMOS there is magic on how dark turns to light and live view takes away the process and work that offers a unique satisfaction of this transformation, as well as the learning experience and the occasional accidental masterpiece

Photographing birds in flight at 60 frames-per-second

Photographing birds in flight at 60 frames-per-second By Thomas Stirr ( website | eBooks , check out also his previous NR posts ): The objective of this article is to illustrate the additional differentiation in bird motion that can be captured when shooting still images at 60 frames per second. While the now discontinued Nikon 1 system with its small 1” CX sensor was challenged with dynamic range, colour depth and low light performance, it was capable of some very fast frame rates. When shooting in continuous auto-focus, various Nikon 1 bodies could shoot at 15 frames per second, or at 10 or 20 frames per second in full resolution, depending on the model.

Report: Nikon 1 semi-officially discontinued in Canada

Nikon 1 concepts on display when the system was introduced A reader sent me a link to a dpreview thread describing a conversation with a Nikon rep at a recent trade photo show in Canada: The annual trade photo show is taking place at the main camera store here in Regina, Canada. At the Nikon booth, there were no Nikon 1 cameras, lenses or accessories (like last year, too). When I asked the rep, “What’s happening with Nikon 1?” His reply was: “(Shoulder shrug) There won’t be anything new.

Nikon 1: the little camera that could

Nikon 1 – the little camera that could by Thomas Stirr  (check out also his ebook with the same title ): After using Nikon APS-C and full frame DSLRs in the past, I’ve been using the Nikon 1 system exclusively for my client video business and for my still photography needs for the past two and a half years. While many people are assuming the worst, no official announcement regarding the future of Nikon 1 has been made by Nikon. I regularly hear from other Nikon 1 owners who enjoy their cameras and are planning to continue shooting with them in the years to come, even if the system is eventually discontinued by Nikon.
