Picture Control

Tailor your images just as you imagine them.

Adjust the tonality and character of your pictures, Full HD movies, and Motion Snapshot to create a more personal touch. Six settings are available: standard, neutral, vivid, monochrome, portrait and landscape. In addition, you can manually adjust the sharpening, contrast, brightness, saturation and hue to further fine-tune your images to your likings.

Active D-Lighting

This function automatically reveals details in the dark and light parts of high-contrast scenes and capture images that appear closer to how your eyes see them. Once you turn it on, Active D-Lighting will be used for every picture thereafter relieving you from the cumbersome set up every time you shoot.

Mount Adapter FT1

Expand your horizons with Mount Adapter FT1.

Mount Adapter FT1 has been especially designed so that the extensive lineup of NIKKOR lenses may be used with Nikon 1. Mount Adapter FT1 keeps the F values of your existing F mount NIKKOR lenses in tact while also delivering the same brightness. Because you can have an angle of view equivalent to the focal length that is approx. 2.7 times that of the F mount NIKKOR lenses, you can use standard lenses as telephoto lenses and telephoto lenses as super-telephoto lenses to get closer to the action. The Mount Adapter FT1 also supports auto exposure/autofocus and vibration reduction.

  • Note:Autofocus is available only with AF-S NIKKOR lenses. Other restrictions apply. Please visit Nikon website for details.
