This blog is about the V3-F1A flash adapter for Nikon 1, the Nikon D800 and generic photography related issues. Currently I am making flash adapters to enable the Nikon 1 V1, V2 and V3 cameras to use standard flashes or radio triggers. This is a unique product, my own innovation, not available anywhere else. My own DIY CNC is another subject here.

The first seven is almost ready
I am sorry
for my silence. It is not that this project is abandoned, but I was very busy
elsewhere, so I could not spend as much time with this as I originally hoped
I also had
to come up with a good solution for all the individual parts of the adapter. Believe
me, though it looks like a simple thing and a simple task to do, it is not. At
least not unless one has a whole factory of his own to use for making these
even though I do not advertize this blog yet, I noticed that the number of
visitors are "alarmingly" increasing. This is OK, but it is also
putting a pressure on me to release the product I promised to release.
Hopefully this will happen very soon.
Please note that the seven adapters you see in
the image are just the base. The contacts to the camera are still not installed,
and also the locking mechanism is still to be installed, which is why I cannot
sell these yet. I am in the process of finishing these. After that they will be
available on eBay. I cannot do it faster because I also have a full time job
and a family. Please, be patient.
The adapter is now available. Read about the details here:
