Has anybody tried shooting macro with a DX 40mm micro (with FT1) on a J5? The built-in pop-up flash is nearly useless because the large FT1+40mm casts a shadow. I'm using the pop-up flash, instead, to remotely trigger a SB900.  The pop-up successfully fires the SB900, but there is absolutely no exposure control. I'm in Manual mode with shutter at 1/60sec - I've tried slowing SS down to 1/30sec with no improvement.  With Flash Control set on "TTL" I get massive underexposure; when set to...

I'm really bad at figuring out these sort of things, conceptually, so bear with me... I'm trying to figure out which gives more effective pixels on the subject: Say I have a 400mm lens.. On the V2 with a 400mm lens (using the FT1) I would have approx 1080mm at 14MP On the D500 with the same 400mm lens I would have 840mm but at 21MP So which gives me more pixels on the subject? Please disregard any other factors i.e. IQ, focus limitations, etc. I know about all that :) Basically I'm just...

Hi all, I bought a J5 not too long ago. Despite some VERY irritating simplifications (no live update of the exposure or histogram and a shallow 20 frame buffer, no EVF...WHAT WERE YOU THINKING NIKON?!). *ahem* rant over. Anyway, I'm happy with the unique properties of the N1 system. That 2.7x multiplier is worth the investment alone. For BIF and fast moving subjects, I will probably get a V2 or V3 at some point later this year. Now, I am an improving macro shooter, and am looking for what...

Hi I am just testing the J5 with the Nikon FT! adaptor. I tried now my Nikkor 35/1.8G ED on it. AF works (although slow), but surprisingly the ISO setting is too high. I have ISO Auto 6400 enabled, A mode (F1.8) and a resilting shutter speed of 1/200s with ISO 1600. So instead of lowering the shutterspeed to get better image quality with lower ISO, it sticks always at ISO 1600. Also with other shutterspeeds. How can this be?

I have a Nikon V1 that I recently updated to firmware 1.40. Now I want to buy a new Ft 1 adapter to use my Nikon Afs 300 mm f4 D. Will this combo work without getting problems with the firmware on the Ft1? I searched the forum but I'm not sure. Another question is how theresults are with continuous autofocus?ThanksRaafje

Just wondering if anyone's done this. I can't fit my Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 VC onto the FT1 because of the bump with the switches on the lens hits the extended part of the foot. Annoying, since I was thinking of getting a Tamron 70-300mm VC, as well, and I know it will have the same issue...

Hi has an aybody used the new 300mm PF lens  with the FT1 on a V2/3 camera .Iam considering adding this lens to my FF system with a view to using it also on my V2.I am especially interested in its wide open performance and AF speed as i would want to use it to compliment my 70 300 cx lens.

The tripod mounting plate on the Nikon VR 1 80-200 f2.8 lens seems smaller in size then the tripod mount plate which comes on the latest model VR ll 80-200 f2.8 lens. Does anyone here know if these parts are interchangeable? In other words can the older smaller, more compact plate design fit on the newer model lens. Thanks. Having shot with the FT1 adapter Nikon 1 V3 and VR 1 lens, it was a more compact fit on my small monopod, than what I have seen in photos of the larger tripod/monopod...

Trying out the 6D...only one day in.  My favorite lens the Tamron 18-270 fits fine, but every pic I take has a blackish almost vignette look around them.  Is this lens maybe not compatible?  Worked fine in Rebel TS1.  HELP😩😪

I heard of others using a non-nikon lens converter in the manual mode on a V1 so I went out and bought an inexpensive one just to play with using my DX lens. Well so far I can not find a way to make it work. I have since heard of chipped adaptors?? I'm not ready yet to pay the cost of the camera to get an FT1. Any words of wisdom here. Is there a workaround?
