An exhausted battery fully charges in about 2 hours. Battery Life 230 shots (the numbers of shots that can be taken with a fully-charged battery varies with the condition of the battery, temperature, the interval between shots and the length of times menus are displayed and flash).

Question

Taking pictures in very low light?

Often the Nikon J1 will tell me that it cannot focus in very low light levels. Even if I put the flash up, it will not take the picture. Is there a mode where it will take the picture regardless of how much light there is?

There is not manual focus with the 1 series. Try enabling the AF assist light or using the center AF point, or auto AF point mode. Also, if selectable, try single servo AF mode (S instead of C).

Without seeing the camera it is difficult to analyze.
Are you in slow motion mode instead of HD? Slow motion will only record for a short time because of the frame rate, 4gb of space will record in less than 1 minute. If it is not that I suggest calling Nikon service and support. In the US it is 1-800-nikonus.

Movie can be upto 4 GB in size and 20 minutes in length. Note that depending on memory card write speed, shooting may end before this length is reached.

Check that the card should be SDHC-compliant. The camera support UHS-1. Nikon Approved memory cards are

SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexar Media, Platinum II, Professional, Full-HD Vedio.

The FT1 Mount Adapter allows you to use certain legacy F Mount NIKKOR lenses (those designed for use with Nikon D-SLR/SLR cameras) on the Nikon 1 V1. The Mount Adapter is attached to the Nikon 1 V1 and the F Mount NIKKOR lens then attached to the adapter. The FT1 will add an angle of view of 2.7 times that of the F Mount NIKKOR lens' focal length.

Question

FT1 mount

You always say the FT1 mount will let us use lenses designed for Nikon DSLRs. What about older F-mount lenses? Can I use older AF lenses? What about even older AI lenses? I'm willing to focus and meter manually. I just want to know if I can use my film-era lenses with these new cameras.

Question

Does the Nikon 1 have a configurable continuous shooting mode?

I am a skydiving videographer and part of my job is taking still pictures. The perfect piece of equipment, which doesn't exist to my knowledge, would shoot video while taking about 1.5-2 still shots per second.

Short of that, I would love to have a lightweight camera that would take stills in a continuous shooting mode, again approx 2 shots per second or slightly less. Alternatively, if the camera could be controlled with a tongue or bite switch, that would work as well.

The quality of pictures combined with size/weight make this an attractive for skydiving.

Could this camera work in that capacity?

Thanks!

Question

Video sound Mac compatible?

Previous Nikon cameras use a sound format in videos that is incompatible with Macintosh iMovie software. The sound was "muxed" ...meaning it was mixed together with the video. To hear the sound on a mac, every clip had to be reprocessed with a third party program which not only adds annoyance and wastes time, but it also changes the date of the movie clip.

I have avoided Nikon products for the last 5 years because of this issue.

Does Nikon still use this video format on the Nikon 1 cameras? Or is the video now fully compatible with iMovie? These cameras create a very exciting intermarket between compact digitals and DSLRs. My fingers are crossed that this issue is no longer a problem for us Mac users!

Thank you!
