An engineer from Sweden has developed the first ever hotshoe adapter for the Nikon 1 V-series mirrorless cameras. The V2-F1A adapter allows photographers to mount Iso-hotshoe flashguns and radio triggers to the Nikon 1Â V1, V2 and V3.
The proprietary accessory port on the NikonÂ 1 V-seriesÂ only works with a single model of flashgun, the Speedlight SB-N7 (and the discontinued SB-N5). The situation isÂ exacerbated by the Nikon V1’s lack of a built-in flash, contributingÂ to my personallyÂ getting fed up and switching to another system.
The “Adapting Camera” V2-F1A provides an Iso-standard hotshoeÂ as well as PC sync port, bothÂ for manual triggering of small flashes, sync cordsÂ and radio transmitters. Its manufacturer â€” who makes them himself â€” is now selling them directly for â‚¬83 / Â£59 / US$91 / 785SEK. Visit the Adapting Camera blog for more information.
