Product Highlights
  • Compatible with All Nikon 1 Cameras
  • Nikkor F-Mount Lens w/ Nikon 1 Cameras

The Nikon FT1 Mount Adapter allows you to use certain Nikkor F-mount lenses (designed for Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras) on all Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras. In order to use this adapter, the camera's firmware must be updated to at least version 1.10. An F-mount lens will produce an angle of view equivalent to 2.7x the view when used with a full-frame SLR or DSLR camera (an F-mount 50mm lens, for instance, will provide an angle of view on the V1 equivalent to a 135mm lens on a full-frame SLR or DSLR camera).

When a VR (Vibration Reduction) lens is used, VR functions can be used. Autofocusing is possible when using AF-S lenses, but focus mode must be set to AF-S (Single AF) and AF-area mode is fixed at Single-point, using only the center focus point. AF/AE supported with AF-S lenses only. When using CPU lenses, [P], [S], [A], and [M] exposure modes can be used, while only [A] and [M] exposure modes can be used with non-CPU lenses. The aperture is set using the aperture ring on the lens.

Shooting in Motion Snapshot mode is only possible when focus has been acquired with an AF-S lens. The Smart Photo Selector function cannot be used. As of December, 2011, the FT1 Adapter is compatible with 65 existing F-mount Nikkor lenses.

Use Nikkor F-mount lens with Nikon 1 cameras.
For Nikon 1 cameras--the camera's firmware must be updated to at least version 1.10.
When using the FT-1 and a compatible AF-S NIKKOR F-Mount lens, users can take full advantage of the Nikon 1's high-speed continuous shooting of 10/30/60 fps. (*When an AF-S lens is used. However, focus is locked with the first shot with continuous shooting.)
[P], [S], [A], and [M] exposure modes can be used with CPU lenses.
Vibration reduction (VR) functions when VR lenses are used. Enable vibration reduction, or specify a setting, using switches on the lens. NORMAL/ACTIVE modes are supported when lenses equipped with these modes are used. VR functions in NORMAL mode when lenses not equipped with the NORMAL/ACTIVE modes are used.
The Smart Photo Selector function cannot be used.
AF/AE supported with AF-S lenses only. Autofocusing is possible when AF-S lenses are used. However, focus mode must be set to AF-S (Single AF) and AF-area mode is fixed at Single-point with only the center focus point used.
The focus indicator (rangefinder) can be used with CPU lenses.
[A] and [M] exposure modes can be used with non-CPU lenses. Aperture is specified using the aperture ring on the lens.
Shooting in Motion Snapshot mode is only possible when focus has been acquired with an AF-S lens.

      I use the FT1 with the V1 to get extra reach with my telephoto lenses and have been very impressed. The combo in the title gives me an equivalent 1134mm focal length with a f/5.6 f-stop. Adding a decent tripod resulted in very sharp images. I took this to FLA recently to nab some birds and was not disappointed. BIF's were a bit of a challenge due to limited AF with the FT1, but the alternative to get these results is to carry big/expensive glass.

      I bought this adapter to use with long lens for wildlife. It attached easily to my V1 and lens attach easily. Unfortunately, my Tamron autofocus lens will not work. An older Tamron lens without autofocus works fine on the adapter. I had read early reviews indicating the Tamron autofocus lens would work but it seems with updated Nikon firmware the lens are not recognized. Both Nikon (not surprising) and Tamron (disappointing) are unresponsive when the problem is pointed out. I am keeping the adapter and replacing my Tamron 70-300 lens with a Nikon 70-300.

                  Well made and fits like it should. This really adds a new dimension to the Nikon 1 system. Used it first with my 300 AF-S f2.8 VR with amazing results. Well worth the investment.

                  During the transition from the large SLR to the smaller system, it seems those old lens will stay in their boxes for ever. Here comes the FT1, who saves those old lens and makes the 1 system more attractive.

                      Great product if you already have Nikon glass.
                      Not as good as the exotics but a much cheaper price.
                      Use with 300F4 and tc1.4. work great. Really brings the birds in when you cant get close.

                                There are adapters and then there are adapters. Over 20 years ago I privately imported Novoflex adapters into the USA.Now B and H Photo sell them. And I thank them for doing that.Mirror Boxless cameras (as the Nikon 1 is) are becoming very common. They have a lens/flange distance about 18 mm. The Nikon F flange distance is 46.5 mm. The FT-1 adapter adapts Nikon F lenses to the Nikon 1 camera body.How do I use the FT-1? I use the long focal length Nikkors which become Super-Nikkors since only the central is used and has a far greater pixel density(10.4) than a D800(7.3). The mount is very well made. The instructions are misleading in terms of lenses which can be used. Nikon only lists the currently listed lenses. There are some 80 million which will fit and be used.

                                    I plan to use this product on Nikon J1 and V1 cameras with legacy lenses. It works well with the Nikkor 70-300 mm lens allowing for Nature Photography at a low cost. Very seamless with G series lenses. My old AI and AIS lenses work with manual focus and Aperture priority.

                                              I use the FT1 with the Nikon 70-300 to provide an equivalent 800mm f/5.6 for photographing birds and wildlife. This is as good as or better than long zooms with teleconverters on a DX SLR.

                                              AF is fast and accurate in good light, though neither as fast or as accurate as with the same lens on an SLR. Battery life is much shorter than with ordinary CX lenses.

                                              A monopod or tripod is essential at 800mm, so a foot to go in a quick-release should be factored into the cost.

                                                This adapter for Nikon 1 camera which is small and light. It fit well with my normal Nikkor lens. I got very sharp pictures with it. The only inconvenient is that the product is a little too heavy for a small camera.

                                                This is a perfect accessory for Nikon lens owners on the Nikon 1 series cameras. I have both the 1V and the 2V. It makes my very sharp Nikon 70-300 zoom lens as a 190-810 zoom with outstanding picture quality.
                                                Highly recommend it if you have one of these cameras and Nikon lenses.

                                                      This is the only reason why i got the v1 in the first place. For me, using only he center focus point is not really a draw back. I'm using my 1.4 lenses on it and i'm surprised to see how long it takes to start up since the aperture has to open up first. Not a deal breaker though.
