ANSWERS IN A FLASH!
Can you recommend an underwater Nikon?
Gecelle, via Facebook
Chris says… Pros would use a D-SLR in a special underwater housing, but a cheaper option is the new Nikon 1 AW1.
Are ‘Normal’ and ‘Active’ two levels of VR?
Quintin Gardner, via email
Chris says… Not quite. Normal is for hand-holding, Active is if you’re being shaken about.
Which is best: the Nikon 18-55mm VR or the 18-70mm?
Mandy Thawe, Lyme Regis
Chris says… The 18-70mm lacks VR but has a longer range and non-rotating front element.
