Nikon FT1 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Nikon FT1 reviews

    FT1 Mount Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for wildlife photos I purchased the Nikon 1 V1 with the FT1 adapter at the recommendation of Thom Hogan for an affordable wildlife photography set up. The cost and weight of a 400 mm or 500 mm telephoto lens was out of the question for me. I have been using the Nikon 1 V1 with the FT1 adapter and a 70-200 mm f/2.8 VRII at 200 mm for the equivalent of 540 mm reach and have gotten outstanding photos with this set up. Have also used with the Tamron 70-300 mm for an 810 mm equivalent and the pictures are good though the IQ is better with the Nikkor 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR II. The AF-C mode does not work with the FT-1 adapter so tracking is not an option, and this is the reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for the V1 Get the FT-1 adaptor and you suddenly have a wide range of lenses to use (G lenses give you AF, D lenses don't) with a 2.7 crop factor. That gives me excellent reach on my 70-300 ((189-810 equivalent!) The photos to me made the adaptor look sort of clunky but the actual item is small, fits well on the body and has its own tripod attachment. Try it with a 50mm, outstanding bokeh and turns the 50 into a great portrait lens (135 equivalent).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes the Nikon 1 system more versatile I've used the FT-1 on a V1 body with various AF-S-type lenses, especially the 70-200/2.8 and 300/4. With those lenses you get amazing telephoto reach. Just for fun, I also tried a 400/2.8 with a 1.7 TC -- 680mm focal length for a 35-mm equivalent focal length of an insane 1836mm. And it all works. I've also used shorter lenses (24-120/3.5-5.6, 35/1.8) with good results. Plus, I tried a Sigma 120-300/2.8 (the older non-OS version), and that worked just great, too. All in all, if you have a Nikon 1 body and you have F-mount lenses, especially AF-S ones, this purchase is a no-brainer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from V1+FT1+300mm f/4+TC14 = One Sharp Combo 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NIKON FUTURE IS IN THIS MOUNT 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Force Multiplier The Nikon 1 Series provides a small capable camera that can be paired with extremely small lenses (10, 10-30 and 30-110) that provide excellent optical performance in a package that's extremely small and lightweight. For those times when size and weight are not as critical as other factors, this handy piece of gear provides access to all those F lenses in the world. I bought the J1 as a gift for my wife (with 10, 10-30 and 30-110 lenses) since it's got sufficient IQ and speed for her photographic needs, but is small and light enough that she'll carry it along. The FT-1 was bought primarily for her to use with the new 50/1.8G that sees little time on my D7000 (75mm is an awkward focal length for me). On the J1 the 50 becomes a 135/1.8 and has proven to be an excellent portrait lens and useful fast-tele for her, while still being relatively light weight and ergonomic. The FT-1 works just as advertised and is very solid and well crafted. The only rub is that the Nikon 1 firmware did not originally support the FT-1 and had to be updated, which took about an hour of time reading the instructions, doing the download and swapping cards, etc. Well worth it. Now I just have to keep my wife away from my 300/4 AF-S and the new 85/1.8G when it arrives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful Nikon 1 Accessory I use this with a V3 body and Nikon 70-300 f/4.5/5.6 VR (FX) lens. This combo produces impressive images with eye-popping magnification (up to about 800mm effective focal length).There are some limitations (see the Nikon website), the most important being Center Spot focusing only. This hasn't bothered me much.A built-in tripod mount supports the body and lens. This is important, since most FX lenses exceed Nikon's weight recommendations for using the camera tripod mount.Nikon makes a 70-300mm lens for the Nikon 1 system which supports all Nikon 1 functionality. It's more expensive than my 70-300 FX, and the needed (because of the weight recommendation) tripod mount is an accessory. C'mon, Nikon...I recommend this to anyone with an Nikon 1 body and one or more FX telephoto lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far better than I thought it would be. I've tried this adaptor on numerous lenses including the f4 12-24DX, f1.4 24, f2.8 14-24, f2.8 17-35, f2.8 28-70 and f2.8 70-200. Also a few Sigma lenses inluding the f1.8 20. Apart from the Sigma the adaptor worked wonders. If shooting video you should use full manual for white, exposure and ISO, otherwise you may get iris noise. When you mount a new lens onto this adapter it goes through a little routine testing the positioned lens, showing that there is more going on than a simple connection. Of course the ideal situation would be if Nikon would make a body with the adapter included, i.e. a tiny interchangable lens electronic shuttered full frame body. Would be fantastic if it included audio in and out too. There are many lenses that it will not auto focus, including the F2.8 10.5 fisheye.
