The Leica SLR Photo Adapter with a high-quality, 7-lens, optical system transforms the Leica Televid spotting scopes swiftly and easily into high-performance telephoto lenses. The adapter enables the attachment of all well known brands of film and digital SLR cameras to the Leica APO-Televid 82 and APO-Televid 65 spotting scopes. With an overall focal length of 800 mm (35 mm equivalent) with the new photo adapter, it is now possible to capture richly detailed and impressive wildlife images, even at great distances
In use, the usual eyepiece is removed from the spotting scope and replaced by the new Leica Photo-Adapter. Secure attachment is guaranteed by a precisely engineered threaded mount that is simply screwed onto the multi-functional thread of the spotting scope. Cameras can then be connected by means of a readily available T2 adapter.
The handling of the lightweight Leica Photo-Adapter (only 230 g) is particularly simple. An additional rotating mechanism enables photographers to change swiftly and easily between landscape and portrait formats and the adapter can be locked in the chosen setting with a knurled setting screw.
The Leica Photo-Adapter is ideal for use with full format sensors which also ensures no edge-vignetting effects. In addition to DSLRs, the adapter allows users to mount other digital system cameras (EVIL) and film SLRs - for instance Leica R-System cameras. The only precondition is the availability of a suitable T2 adapter.
