Firmware update 1.10 prepares the Nikon 1 J1 and V1 cameras for the FT1 adapter


Nikon issued firmware update for the Nikon 1 J1 and V1 mirrorless cameras which adds pixel mapping and support for the FT1 mount adapter. The FT1 adapter enables the use of Nikon F-mount lenses on a Nikon 1 body. Here are the basics specifications:

  • 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.
  • The focus indicator (range finder) can be used with CPU lenses.
  • [P], [S], [A], and [M] exposure modes can be used with CPU lenses.
  • [A] and [M] exposure modes can be used with non-CPU lenses. Aperture is specified using the aperture ring on the lens.
  • Vibration reduction (VR) functions when VR lenses are used. Enable vibration reduction, or specify a setting, using switches on the lens.
  • Shooting in Motion Snapshot mode is only possible when focus has been acquired with an AF-S lens.
  • The Smart Photo Selector function cannot be used.
The Nikon 1 FT1 adapter is expected to be released in Japan on December 22, 2011.

Adobe released Lightroom 3.6 and Camera Raw 6.6 just added support for Nikon J1 and V1 cameras (download link).
