"V1 - first time out"


Netanya, IL
          

I took ONLY a V1 on a recent trip to the South of France and have uploaded the results to http://www.nr-ginsbury.com/f284084026.

Being strictly amateur and not professional, I can profess to a degree of satisfaction at the IQ. This was not a "photo trip" per se and it was a real joy not to be encumbered with heavy equipment.

If anyone has the time and the inclination to look at the pix and give me some pointers for improvement, I will be most grateful.

Nathan

I think you did quite well. I have yet to take a trip with only the V1 and not the big stuff…

Thanks.

I was a tad scared at leaving my tried and trustworthy D7000 at home, but the V1 does work and better than your average P&S.

I recently got a V1 kit with the 10-30mm and 30-110mm lenses to have a light travel kit. We went on a one day trip to New York City Saturday, and I was very pleased with the V1. It was much lighter than carrying my D7000 and 16-85mm lens, and the photos I got will be just fine at 8x10 inch enlargements. I was thinking of getting an Oly OM D, but the $400 price of the V1 kit was just too good a deal, and I am glad I got it. I have a Canon S95 P&S, and while it is small, the lack of a viewfinder and the long shutter lag makes the V1 a better travel camera if I am not expecting to do really serious work. I agree with you that the V1 is a good travel choice.

Some great images, shows what can be achieved. What a bridge Millau Viaduct is, I've been there in the Tarn Valley before it was built. Proudly I say, another great British design by Sir Norman Foster

The V1 is the perfect travel camera really. It's the main reason why I got it. Although now that I have a 24-120 for my D800 it may come back to being my travel camera, too.

But the V1 performs very nicely as you've seen. And it's so inconspicuous which works out great in certain European venues where having a big DSLR gets you noticed.
