"Question re: FT-1"


Banning, US
          

Does the Ft-1 have a tripod mount screw hole? Do I need the TA N-100 tripod spacer to use the FT-1 on a tripod? Okay that's really two questions.

Lens that I currently have that I might use are the Nikon 28-300, Nikon 70-200 f/4 (of course I have a tripod collar for it) and the Tamron 90 mm Macro.

Thanks,

Jerry

The FT-1 has a built-in tripod foot. The adapter and tripod foot is a one piece unit and the foot cannot be detached.





Hope this helps...JL

Thanks, SRFast, you have given me the answer that I needed. I would not want to put the stress on the V lens mount with a heavy lens.

Thanks, again

Jerry

I ordered an L bracket for the wife's FT-1 and it works great with light lenses that have no tripod foot.

an old duffer with the time to have fun,
