    Nikon DF-M1 reviews

    DF-M1 Dot Sight is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful for Long Lens Videography I frequently use long lenses for video work, 300 to 800 mm, in order to pick out individuals when filming a large orchestra. I would like to lock in on the subject in 10 seconds or less, but they can be difficult to find through a small viewfinder and narrow FOV. The Nikon DF-M1 sight is wide field and can be used with both eyes open, making finding the subject much quicker. You may have to adjust this sight each time you mount it (cold shoes aren't precision fixtures), but that's quick and easy to do. Although the sight uses a laser, no light is visible from the front. No point in scaring the horses ;)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Battery !!!!! This product does not come with a battery so it cannot be used unless you buy batteries It takes a single CR2032 3v lithium coin battery. The Specs do not indicate the battery !!!! The instruction sheet does not indicate the battery !!!! The accessory list does not offer a battery !!!! Shame on Nikon !!!!! This unit is more expensive, heavier, bigger, and feels more rugged than the Olympus EE-1 and has choice of 2 color dots and 3 dot shapes.... but otherwise the 2 units are comparable. The Olympus comes with a battery I give the product 5 stars but I give Nilon marketing Zero stars

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthwhile Add On Depending on nature of the subject, this dot sight can be very helpful when working at the longer focal lengths achievable with the Nikon Coolpix P1000. It is important to realize that you need to calibrate it for a given subject distance, and recalibrate it if the subject moves too far out of range. If your subjects are comparatively in the same area, it is a very big help in rapid recomposition. If you are on a hike, and shooting a variety of subjects at varying differences, you'll need to keep recalibrating. Not a big deal, but worth knowing prior to purchasing it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for cameras with big zooms Now I have one, it has become an essential for me for shooting at higher zoom levels- especially when the camera is handheld. It seems a bit fragile with its pop up mechanism, but so far I have had no issues.  Although it has choices of dots for the holographic site, I find that only the smallest and very precise red dot is particularly useful for my needs.  It needs realignment from time to time as the elevation and horizonal adjustment dials can be accidentally turned way too easily, but happily the realignment is quick and easy.  My biggest beef is with the positioning of the unit in the hot shoe so that the flash in my camera cannot be opened.  That seems like an unnecessary design goof.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes tracking easier... I bought this for use with my Nikkor 1000mm Reflex lens which I use on a D500. The effective focal length of this setup makes tracking moving objects near impossible but with this setup, acquisition is much easier. LOVE IT - Only took a few seconds to set up and its really bright. I think this might be used with my 400mm as well, next time I shoot college football.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major improvement in success rate for birds in flight Trying to follow birds in flight with a 300 to 500 mm telephoto (maybe with teleconverter) handheld is difficult due to erratic flight patterns.   This Nikon product can be used with any long telephoto brand, with DLSRs, Mirrorless, and Point and Shoots.  This product allows one to follow much more easily,  My hit rate improved from 10% to 75%.  There is a learning curve though so dont expect those results immediately.Generally easy to use.
