    Nikon 1 - J3

    If anyone is interested in buying one of these, my advice is don't. I have a friend who writes a picture blog for a cruise forum, and he was going to use it on his cruise. He was midway through a 7 day cruise when the camera took a dump on him. He had to resort to using his cellphone for his pictures. Not a pretty sight! Even though his cellphone provided some nice shots, they just wern't as nice as they should be. I wouldn't spend the over $300 for a J3.

    So let me see if I understand... Your friend took a J3 with him on vacation, the camera broke somehow and he had to shoot his vacation pics with his phone. Is that pretty much what happened?
