As we speak I sit with a new Nikon D4 next to me (11fps, full frame sensor, ridiculous ISO abilities, damned near unlimited buffer, Wireless capture shooting and control via iPhone, iPad and laptop, 1080p HD recording direct to card or throughput via HDMI etc etc etc.)
However it is still the Nikon 1 V1 that is always at hand
The V1 has finally turned me into one of those photographers who always has a camera at hand. And this is purely because I now have a camera that is compact enough to fit in a pocket but high enough resolution and sharp enough lenses for front cover abilities. The video is amazing, the lenses incredibly sharp and the little black box with a very cool range of interchangeable lenses is just perfect to have on hand all the time.
Over X-Mas my naturalist brother pointed out a Southern Brown Tree Frog and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a some more Nikon 1 fun.
Here’s the resulting snap.
Now all we need is a fish eye lens and waterproof housing for some cool water photography… don’t worry I have already been chatting to Phil at http://www.aquatech.net regarding this… maybe on the horizon – we will see???
Oh yeah… and a quick few thoughts on the D4 will follow soon but no you cannot see sample footage and images yet… However hang in there as D4 mini-review and sample photos will follow as soon as the guys at ‘the big N’ give the all clear.
