FT-1 Adapter – Use F Mount Lenses On A Nikon 1 Camera

The FT-1 adapter allows F-Mount Nikkor lenses designed for use with DSLR and SLR cameras the more compact Nikon 1 Series bodies. This is a great option if you have a lot of F-Mount lenses already and don’t have the budget to purchase more Nikon 1 lenses.

The adapter is simply attached to the Nikon 1 Series like a lens, and the F-Mount lens of your choice can then be attached onto it. Using the FT-1 increases the angle of view of the lens by 2.7 times. This means that using a telephoto lens on the camera will give you an angle of view equivalent to a super telephoto lens being used.

As well as increased telephoto reach, the FT-1 has no loss of light, meaning a lens with an aperture of f/2.8 will remain just that. The FT-1 also allows you to take full advantage of the Nikon 1’s high speed continuous shooting of up to 60 fps when using it and a compatible AF-S Nikkor lens.
