Nikon Australia has announced the recommended retail prices for its Nikon 1 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera system.

Different varieties of the Nikon 1 will be available Australia-wide on October 20. Nikon Australia has said that three kits will be sold:

Nikon 1 J1, with 10mm f/2.8 prime lens kit: $899 RRP

Nikon 1 J1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1099 RRP

Nikon 1 V1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1399 RRP

However, it is not clear yet whether any single zoom lens kits (with the 10-30mm 'standard' zoom lens) will be available for either the Nikon 1 J1 or V1, or whether the Nikon 1 V1 will be sold in a bundle with the 10mm f/2.8 prime lens. Similarly, no pricing has been announced for a body-only package — it is not known whether this will be offered. No pricing for Nikon's super-zoom 10-100mm lens was included with Nikon's release today.

Nikon's current announcement forces consumers to buy either a single prime lens with the entry level J1 — confusing when prime lenses are generally considered less versatile and beginner-friendly than zoom lenses — or a comparatively expensive twin lens kit. Confusingly, there is no prime lens kit offered with the enthusiast-grade V1, only the expensive twin lens option.

Representatives of Nikon Australia did not respond to a request for clarification by the time of publication.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
