I just nearly bought one as well... But looked at the bank balance before I hit the paypal, and a job I've been working on hasn't cleared yet; so didn't happen!Refurbished Nikon J1 with 10-30 VR lens AND Lightroom 5 software is currently being sold in the USA for only $149.99
The J1 is basically the same as my V1 but lacks the viewfinder and flash hotshoe, though it does have a built in flash. It also lacks the mechanical shutter so it's electronic shutter only. You still get all the speed and the same IQ as the V1 though. Total bargain with the bundled software.
Including the import duties etc listed on the Ebay link to buy it and get it shipped to the UK would cost £117ish!
I nearly did too, but I've already got LR5. Still worth it though I think as J1's in the UK are still going for more than that ,or about the same secondhand without the software!I just nearly bought one as well...

The way I was looking at it, even though I've got LR5; I could have moved an unused copy of LR pretty quickly and brought the cost of the camera down to about £90.I nearly did too, but I've already got LR5.

Thats why I nearly went for it... (I still might).The way I was looking at it, even though I've got LR5; I could have moved an unused copy of LR pretty quickly and brought the cost of the camera down to about £90.
Kerching..................sounds like GAS to meThats why I nearly went for it... (I still might).
It's a DAMNED good camera for what is basic compact money!!
EDIT: Sod it I just bought one. I've been thinking of buying a second 1 system body anyway. The J is smaller and easier to slip in a pocket and with the 10mm pancake lens I've already got would be an awesome street tool. The software in the picture is labelled "for bundling with cameras only not to be sold separately".
Total cost £121.01
WE may have to do an interventionDefinitely. G.A.S.
Nov 2013 http://www.photography-forum.org/showthread.php/105893-How-do-people-store-their-photography-quot-stuff-quot-!!I'm looking for a tall, narrowish (less than 1metre wide) cupboard/cabinet to store my photography gear in. Ideally I'd like it to have space at the bottom for me to chuck in my light stand and tripod and the rucksack I'm currently storing my gear in with shelves at the middle/top to store the camera/lenses on and doors to keep out the dust/dirt.
I have SOOOO much stuff now, all the studio kit is huge too (and TBH rarely used though I don't want to get rid of it). I have a huge pile in the the spare bedroom that takes up an entire corner of the room. That is the hi-lite in it's bag (nearly a metre diameter) two bags with studio lights in, one with ilux and one with lencarta. 3 bags containing lastolite knitted curtain backgrounds, boxes of strut mounts and folders, bags of background support stands and lighting stands.. it's getting ridiculous! To top things off I took possession of a 70cm beauty dish from Brian the other day, the dish is obviously not small but thebox is a metre squared and currently living on the lounge floor but I need to add it to the pile in the bedroom.
Then downstairs I have a cupboard now (a nice one from Piranha trading) to put my cameras and lenses etc in I'm really pleased with it but I do need to get some plastic containers for the smaller stuff like spare batteries etc. but then I have my back packs and bags.... where do I put them!
Way that is a lot of stuff to get through....mag never finish it all!There's a huge bundle of ebooks, presets and actions on sale for $89 for four days here. https://5daydeal.com/?utm_content=b...l&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer
