Nikon Australia has announced a new close-up lens adaptor for the Nikon 1 mirrorless camera system. The new Nikkor N1-CL1 Close-Up Adaptor can be used to aattach to any 1 NIKKOR lens featuring a 40.5mm filter-attachment size and you can get closer to subjects and capture close-up shots with blurred background easily.
Simply by attaching the N1-CL1 to any 1 NIKKOR lens that features a 40.5 mm filter-attachment size, minimum focus distance of the prime lens is shortened, and you can capture subjects at a larger size. Even when using a lens with longer minimum focus distance, you can get closer to subjects, enabling image expression utilizing background blur.
When attached to a lens such as the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 or 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6, you can take shots like those achieved with a micro lens. Even the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 that originally features a high reproduction ratio achieves a clear effect. This accessory is ideal for those who want to easily take close-up shots of flowers or for tabletop photography, for example.
