    When I take a shot I get a whole bunch of them? I get like 5ea.

    I cannot find a setting where I only get a single image output. I am afraid of taking 10-12 shots...

    A new board I just got from Hawaii.

    MT1.

    Thanks. Jim

    I don't have a Nikon 1 series camera handy to look through the menus.....you'll be looking for called "Drive mode" probably

    Probably a newer J series camera in Continuous mode ... (purely electronic shutter, hence no sound); Luke's right about the hint to look for in the menu. Confusingly, you'll probably have to change "Continuous" in "Continuous" (oh, the joy of menu item labeling) to "Single frame".

    Its called "Continuous" in the menus on my J1 and V1, and needs to be set to Single Frame, as Matt said.

    I know what you're talking about ... I initially planned to just keep the V1 with the 18.5mm (great little lens); but I feel the pull of some wide-angle addition. What are you using? The lenses that I keep thinking about are the frugal, yet pleasantly small 10-30mm PD, the 10mm (the natural choice, somehow) and the said-to-be-very-good 6.7-13mm. Anyhow, I should probably just forget about it - still, any opinions on any of those?

    I have only the 18.5 apart from the 10mm and the standard 10-30 and 30-110. I periodically get tempted by the wide zoom, but more so by the 32, and the 70-300. That said, I'm too financially challenged to indulge.

    @kyteflyer@kyteflyer Thanks, Sue. I can understand your leaning towards the longer lenses - but I have most of that range covered extensively by other systems. I guess I'll just let it rest - even though I'll probably get the 10mm at some time because it's so tiny and said to be at least decent ...
