Nikon FT1 Mount Adapter for F-Mount Lenses & Nikon 1 Series Cameras

The FT-1 Mount Adapter allows you to use certain legacy F-Mount NIKKOR lenses (those designed for use with Nikon D-SLR/SLR cameras) on the Nikon 1 V1 and J1. The Mount Adapter is attached to the Nikon 1 V1/J1 and the F-Mount NIKKOR lens then attached to the adapter. The FT-1 will add an angle of view of 2.7 times that of the F-Mount NIKKOR lens’ focal length.

The primary communication between the body, FT1 and lens is electronic, through two sets of contact pins. There is also a mechanical aperture lever within the F-mount portion of the FT1, plus an internal motor to move the lever too.

Supports 65 existing F-mount NIKKOR lenses …click here to view those support lense from Nikon.

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.

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.)

To use the FT-1, the Nikon 1 J1/V1 camera’s firmware must be updated to at least version 1.10.
