Useful Nikon 1 Accessory

BRSac, B&H Photo
14 December 2014
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Center Focus Spot Only

Low-cost extreme telephoto

Absence de Marquage, B&H Photo
15 July 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.

Good product, just too heavy

Zude, B&H Photo
28 April 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Heavy bulky

Keeps my cameras and lenses compatible

terry, B&H Photo
22 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Most of my gear is Nikon so this adapter is great for me. Being able to use the smaller 1V1 when traveling will be an even bigger bonus now that I can use my other lenses. It is somewhat awkward to take on and off but with practice I expect that to be easier.
  • Pros: Enhances Other Gear, Multiple Uses
  • Cons: Awkward
