Topic: Nikon 1 J1

I bought one earlier this week. It should be here tomorrow.
Not exatly a good CAM for manual focus lenses, but gfoto Store does have chipped adapters.
They also sell the chip by itself.
   The refurb price on these in the US is usd 160. That price is for the kit
With the 10-30 lens, which is 27-81 equiv.

   Without a chipped adapter you dont get any metering,focus confirm, and you cant use mag view, by what ive read
  Af is supposed to be really fast and accurate. Nikon boasted this was the fastest af camera when
It was released
   My plan is to use this  ca m as a copact replacement.

After i test the CAM, If I l t tests well  I plan to buy a Minolta MD chipped adapter, and posibly
An extra chip.
  With the 1" sensor It might be good for Cine and TV lenses.

CONGRATS Walter! Post photos when you can. smile

I put that adapter in a safe place, never to be seen again.

Re: Nikon 1 J1

Thanks I will. Hopefully this rain will stop soon  so I can take It out to try It.

Re: Nikon 1 J1

I hope you like your new camera and I am also interested in seeing some pictures and to hear how the adapters work.

   Thanks. I think Its going to be a nice CAM. I probably wont get to shoot much till
Midweek. Then I will post some test pics.
   My adapters from China are a couple weeks out. I havent ordered the chipped
Adapter yet.

Re: Nikon 1 J1

Sorry I haven't been on in awhile. I bought the Minolta chipped adapter and it works great. Focus confirm works great, mag view, and the metering are accurate.
  I'm also using a cmount dumb adapter.
You can only use M mode for that one.
   I just don't seem to have enough time for shooting.
I also bought a Pentax Cosmicar 75 1.4. I need to order the cmount chipped adapter so I can get the most out of this lens.
  A couple shots with the Pentax Cosmicar 75 1.4. The fire plug is at f1.4 .

Re: Nikon 1 J1

I've been playing with various Pentax Cosmicar lenses on my J1. This is with the Pentax Cosmicar 25 1.8.
Bokeh anyone.?

Re: Nikon 1 J1

Tried the Minolta MC PF 50 1.7 today on the J1. Weather was overcast.
1st shot at f1.7 second shot around f2.8 or so.
I wasn't that impressed with this lens on M4/3.
On the J1, I'm seeing better results http://i.imgur.com/S2Fsalk.jpg

Re: Nikon 1 J1

My favourites are the Minolta images. Especially the last one, because the green of the leafs looks very natural, and the sharpness is excellent.
The bokeh of the Pentax looks somewhat special, for my anyway.

Thanks,

  I'm happy with the way the Nikon 1 series JPEG engine renders Minolta colors.
These are all jpegs my main computer is down so I only have my Acer netbook.
The Pentax Cosmicars are fun to play with. 12mm
lenses and up give full coverage on the J1, and they are so small.
  Except for the 75 1.4 which is a full size lens made for video.

Re: Nikon 1 J1

You can also thro on a 5 mm extension tube on the Pentax Cosmicars for closer shots.
This is the Pentax Cosmicar 25 1.8 with ext. Tube.
