Scopes - Carl Zeiss Sports Releases Quick Camera Adaptor

Scopes - Carl Zeiss

Scopes - New Adaptor Converts the Diascope Spotting Scope into a Super-Telephoto Lens for Digital Cameras. CHESTER, Va. – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics is proud to introduce the Quick Camera Adaptor, the first truly functional digital camera mount for spotting scopes, exclusively for the Carl Zeiss Diascope Fl 65 and 85mm.

Digiscoping, taking digital photographs through high quality spotting scopes, is an increasingly popular activity among bird and wildlife watchers and both amateur and professional photographers. The combination of the exceptional optical quality of the Carl Zeiss Diascope Fl 65 and 85, and the high resolution and focus and exposure intelligence built into today’s digital still and video cameras, produces some truly wonderful images, the kind of images most birders, wildlife watchers, and photographers have only dreamed of in the past.

The Quick Camera Adaptor was designed by digiscopers for digiscopers. It is the first adaptor to combine a rock solid tripod mounted platform, which supplies independent support for both the scope and camera, with an innovative (and patented) swinging arm design that allows the camera to be positioned for photography, or swung out of the way for visual use of the scope, literally in seconds. The Quick Camera Adaptor is the first adaptor for any scope that makes combining photography and visual observation in the field both possible and practical.

A full range of simple adjustments allows the QCA to work with a wide variety of compact digital still and video cameras (no filter threads required). An additional “stop knob” allows the QCA to be preset for camera lens to eyepiece distance, and repositioned in seconds.

Finally, a positive-locking tilt feature allows the use of the same adaptor on both our straight through and angled model Diascopes.

The Diascopes themselves offer definite advantages for the digiscoper. Both offer superb color correction. Our fluorite impregnated Fl glass and the Advanced Optical System design almost totally eliminate the color fringing that plagues digiscopers in lesser scopes. In addition, the 65mm model, again thanks to our AOS design, is exceptionally bright for its size. High resolution digital cameras are known to be “light hungry”, and the 85mm Diascope has all the light gathering ability you will ever need.

The Quick Camera Adaptor for the Diascopes from Carl Zeiss Sport Optics is for anyone who has ever thought: “If only I could get a picture of what I am seeing through this scope right now…”, and for anyone who has ever dreamed about taking the kind of bird and wildlife photographs the pros get with their $6000 lenses. Diascope owners are going to want this adaptor, and everyone else is going to want a Diascope and this adaptor! Great viewing, and great photography, are here in the same compact package, thanks to the Quick Camera Adaptor for the Diascopes, from Carl Zeiss Sports Optics.

Currently available for a suggested retail price of $349.99, the Quick Camera Adaptor will help you preserve your many hours of viewing pleasure with wonderful images.
