At last: a hotshoe adapter for the Nikon 1 system

The V2-F1A adapter allows photographers to mount hotshoe flashguns and radio triggers to the Nikon 1 V1, V2 & V3.

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 1 V1, V2 and V3.

The proprietary accessory port on the Nikon 1 V-series only works with a single model of flashgun, the Speedlight SB-N7 (and the discontinued SB-N5). The situation is exacerbated by the Nikon V1’s lack of a built-in flash, contributing to my personally getting fed up and switching to another system.

The “Adapting Camera” V2-F1A provides an Iso-standard hotshoe as well as PC sync port, both for manual triggering of small flashes, sync cords and radio transmitters. Its manufacturer — who makes them himself — is now selling them directly for €83 / ÂŁ59 / US$91 / 785SEK. Visit the Adapting Camera blog for more information.
