I updated my V1 today, but the camera shows 1.00 for the FT1, the camera itself shows 1.30. I had the FT1 on when I activated the update. What went wrong?

Was the camera itself at V1.30 before you updated the FT-1?

Yes it was. I realized that the FT-1 was a separate update and not included with the V1.30. I now have successfully downloaded the FT-1. It doesn't seem to provide continuous focus with my 70-300 VR though.

Interesting. I noticed the same with my 70-200 but haven't had a chance to really experiment.

I believe the center AF point limitation still applies in all cases (AF-S and AF-C), so be sure of your point selection first. You might also need to disable any competing AF settings such as Face Detection and treat this just like any base DSLR.

That's how I always have it set up. Just can't get the AF-C to work like I expect. But it's a small nit for me.

FT-1 Mount Adapter Firmware

I found in checking my FT 1 L firmware version that it was not up-to-date. My FT 1 shipped in early June.

Mount Adapter FT1 L firmware 1.20 has been available since April 2014

Nikon USA Link

• Support for autofocusing when mounted on the Nikon 1 V3 has been added.

Nikon Europe Link

• Support for autofocusing when mounted on the Nikon 1 J4, released on April 10, and the Nikon 1 V3, scheduled for release on April 17, has been added.

(Note that FT 1 L firmware 1.10 added

• Support for AF-C (Continuous AF) focus mode when the Mount Adapter FT1 is used with AF-S lenses has been added.)

This is an important update - from a preliminary look at using F-mount lenses on the V3, it is a considerable plus. The update also raises more questions about how AF really works through the FT-1. I would like to see more information on how AF and VR work with the Nikon 1 and with the FT-1. I hope we can start updating material available here in the Nikon 1 forum.

Hi David,
Have you, or any other Nikonian reading this, been able to get AF-C to work when using any N1 body + FT-1 and any AF-S lens on the FT-1? I haven't been able to! AF-S yes. AF-C no.

My FT-1 has the latest firmware (1.20) and most of my testing has been done with a brand new 1V3 that has its original firmware as there is no updated code on nikonusa.com.

I am wondering if the lack of AF-C when using AF-S lenses is a MARKETING imposed limitation, as I see no technical reason for it not to be made available.

Pete

The FT-1 firmware update to 1.2 is supposed to enable AF-C autofocus on the center focus point. I too, can not get the camera to focus lock (beep and the green box) when using AF-C mode on my V3. V3 camera doesn't have a firmware update yet - but I am using the latest on the FT-1 at 1.2. I have tried multiple AF-S lenses (35,50,85 1.8g's)

Perhaps we need to wait for a V3 update like with the earlier V1 and V2.

If anybody does have it working, please let me know.

Thanks

Tony V.

Pete, Tony;

I haven't looked at this thread in ages because I don't expect it to change frequently.

AF-C seems to work on my V3 with the FT-1.

I checked the settings on my V3 with 10-30 PD to get beep and green box working before trying with the FT-1. Focus lock as you define it Tony - beep and green box - only works on my V3 when using AF-S. AF-C green box only, even with the native CX lens.

With FT-1, it works the same way. AF-C - green box only. AF-S - beep and green box. (Silent Photography OFF; Sound Settings AF-Checked).

That's what I found just trying it with the camera. I didn't go back and consult the Reference Manual.

Thanks David. Just a follow up question, does the green box disappear if you hold the shutter release half pressed while in AF-C with and w/o the FT1?

I guess I really need to see if the focus points appear when I view the images in View or Capture. Thanks for the reply. Tony

Hi Tony,

I was just using my V3 with FT-1 the last two days. The green focus box is momentary as focus is achieved as I recall - it does not hold as you press the shutter release. I just reviewed this set of photos with ViewNX 2 and the focus points (the center point with FT-1) do appear. They are rather large as others have mentioned.

Hi Neil - I see the V1 firmware has been updated to 1.40 (both A & B). The new USA link is here.

Also, the FT-1 firmware is now at Version 1.20. The USA link can be found here.

Thanks for providing this chart.
