FT-1 Adapter - Use F Mount Lenses On A Nikon 1 Camera : Nikon 1 V3 and mount adapter

If you own a Nikon DSLR system and have recently bought a Nikon 1 Series Mirrorless camera or are thinking of purchasing one, did you know that you can use your F mount DSLR lenses on Nikon 1 Series cameras with the FT-1 mount adapter?

The FT-1 mount adapter allows F-Mount Nikkor lenses designed for use with Nikon DSLR and SLR cameras on 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 camera 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.

For more information on the FT-1 mount adapter, take a look at the Nikon website.
