FT-1 Lens adapter test on Nikon V1 with NIKKOR AF-s 50mm f/1.8G

I’m currently testing the Nikon FT-1 Adapter on my NikonV1, and while I’m not ready to publish a review just yet… I thought considering the dearth of decent “test footage” from the FT-1 on youtube I found (or maybe more to the point, didn’t find) when I went looking for some myself recently, I thought it might be handy to some people to upload a short montage of my Day 1 testing with the lens adapter and a Nikkor AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens I had supplied with the review unit while I await some more Glass to test with it, from Sigma.

FYI, the slow-motion stuff was done by running the V1 in 60P mode and conforming that 60fps footage back down to 25fps – this is sometimes known as “overcranking“… it’s a nifty trick, and one of the best reasons to have a camera that does 60p ;)
