Re: Nikon unveils J1 and V1 mirrorless cameras

Hi, the new CX-frame cameras may produce reasonable images. It is a pity that the 'older' FX-lenses can be used with a crop factor of 2.7 only. I am not afraid to drop the - one century old - 24x36 mm frame/size/reference, but what replaces it, should be acceptable. We were just used to the DX-size ...

Re: Nikon unveils J1 and V1 mirrorless cameras

I fully agree with you Jarle. These cameras are for the point-and-shoot consumers, though. They are not to compete with the Leica, Sony NEX, etc. A faster lens may not be necessary if high ISO-setting results are acceptable. Nikon has shown with the P7000-series that Canon has the better prosumer co...

Wouter Oosterbaan Martinius in Haarlem (Holland) is a respected Nikon expert, so he might be able to help you. Regards, Nico www.ni...

Re: Nikon marketing updated mirrorless DS-505A -- Reuters!

Hi Stan (and others),
At the Photokina 1994 the E2 (DS-505) was introduced, but became for sale on February 15, 1995; together with the E2S (DS-515). The E2N was introduced on September 2, 1996 and the E2Ns on November 7, 1996.

Re: USB PCMCIA memory card reader??

Hi again,
yes, these adapters are not cheap. I'll ask my son, who works and lives in China, whether there are cheap (and working) devices. I could use one too. The ebay-shop you pointed at is in Shensen.
Stay tuned!

Nico

Re: NikonWeb.com DCS File Converter ver 0.2

Hi friends, you may try PhotoStacker PRO 1.10, once (1994) made by Ultima Electronics. It is a simple software opening nearly everything (except NEF), working under various Windows (from 3.1.1. up to XP) and free to get. I can sent it per email as it is just 3 Mb. I use it for older image files etc....

Re: SONY Video Camera HVC-4000P for sale

Indeed, Stan, it is an old (1981) video camera with a Videcon tube, good for 260 lines. You need to carry a Betamax recorder (SL-F1UB or SL-2000) and a battery pack (BCP-220) on your back. In 1983 Sony introduced the Betamax camcorder (with built-in taperecorder). For collectors of older video camer...

Re: Blog post: Nikon D Family 1999 – 2011

Is it possible, Stan, that the built-in software wasn't capable to manage the huge amount of sensor/pixel data? And what about the power consumption. The Nikon engineer stated that the latter was a great problem. I have a regular D1X and an upgraded D1X; the latter cannot be used with a fresh standa...

Re: Blog post: Nikon D Family 1999 – 2011

Hi, it may be interesting to read the interview with Mr. Kiyoshige Shibazaki, known as the developer of the Nikon D1. He is claiming in that interview (http://imaging.nikon.com/history/scenes/12/) that the D1 sensor has 10.8 Mp.!! I have the three D1's and love the D1H, as it is fast and has the bes...

Hi Jarle and others! It is a very nice and comprehensive overview of the development of Nikon's first digital camera. Please allow me to ad a little story I have written - a few years ago - on the history on digital imaging (http://www.nicovandijk.net/digitalhistory.htm) ? All together we can unite/...
