Nikon 1 body + Canon FD (FL) lens
COMPATIBLE MF MA
Entirely possible based on flange focal depth.
The aperture of the FD lens can be operated only with the rear mechanism open, that's why there is an OPEN-CLOSE switch on the adapter. That way, regardless of the aperture settings, the diaphragm can be opened and closed freely.

Don't forget however, that the Nikon 1 system uses a CX sensor, which has an even smaller, 2.7* crop factor than the M4/3 sensors compared to full-frames. This means that using a C/Y lens you'll get a pretty high focal length multiplier (you'll get a smaller image frame).The "Canon FD bayonet" may actually refer to three different things, and although these mean no difference in using the adapter, they're worth a mention. The FL bayonet was the predecessor of the FD and could have been fitted on cameras (and adapters) using the FD bayonet lock. The FD bayonet has two versions: FD and nFD. The original FD has a breech lock, which means that only the silver ring on its end of the housing moves when fixing it (it doesn't have a lug, it tightens onto the bayonet lock). In the case of the nFD the whole housing of the lens turns when fixing (similar to a modern EF lens), but the bayonet itself doesn't turn inside the compartment (and has a safety release as well). There are 134 types of FD and 33 types of FL lenses, all of which can be with all kinds of FD adapter rings.
