Nikon 1 v1 – A few more snaps

I won’t waffle too long today.

Just a quick note on the Nikon 1 V1 again …. I am really beginning to love this compact little solution as a replacement for a DSLR on many occasions

I took it with me when I went for a coffee on the weekend and photographed a photo of my tiny daughter with the compact and very universal 10-30mm f/3.5 – f/5.6 lens… and the sharpness and clarity continues to blow my mind.

I also snapped a Macro photo of my sunglasses which really was just playing around with the camera and my sunglasses on the table at the cafe, but is a good preview the lenses resolving power and cameras noise at 720 ISO – which was visible but quite minimal in the shadow areas. Actually the High ISO ability of this camera is quite surprising for such a small sensor (which is one of the contention points amongst many enthusiasts and professionals alike, who were waiting a long time for this cameras release)

Additionally I threw on the brilliant 10-100mm (Equivalent in 35mm to 27 – 270mm) f/4.5 – f/5.6 VR (and the VR is very cool in this electronic-optical-zoom lens) and it was the first time I have really recognised the VR as invaluable… a very nice lens. The only downside is the size of the lens.. as large as many DSLR lanes – but that is the downside of having such a sharp and fast super-zoom.

The 10-30mm is very cool because it is the exact opposite (Equivalent to 27 -80mm) it is super compact.

Anyway here are the pix I mention above:

About inciteimages

A magazine recently profiled my life and pretty much hit the nail on the head: Australian adventure photographer (and occasional journalist) Mark Watson is a liar. He suggests his job is “not so glamorous,” but drop him an email and his ‘out of office auto response’ will inform he’s heli-skiing New Zealand or trekking Patagonia. In downtime he surfs and mountain bikes Sydney’s Northern Beaches or can be spied drinking café latte’s on the beachfront when he should be editing photos. He’s a Nikon Ambassador and Red Bull Australia’s No.1 photographer, and after a few Corona’s, admits, “I photograph cool people, in cool places, doing cool things!” Quickly followed by the disclaimer “It’s not always exciting…” But always said with a mischievous grin.
