Photo Adapter
TSN-IP4S

FEATURES

  • By connecting this adapter to Kowa binoculars and spotting scopes, you can enjoy capturing telephoto images with your iPhone 4/4S.

  • Simple connection can be made merely by pressing the photo adapter on to the binoculars or spotting scope.
    Connection can be easily carried out simply by pressing the photo adapter on to the eyepiece of Kowa binoculars or spotting scopes, allowing the telephoto imaging to be quickly started. Procedures such as optical axis adjustment will not be required.

  • Makes telephoto imaging possible using the iPhone4/4S camera function.
    By mounting the iPhone4/4S in the “TSN-IP4” photo adapter and then connecting this to the binoculars or spotting scopes, images from the iPhone4 camera function can be optically enlarged and captured. The enlargement magnification will differ according to the magnification of the binoculars or spotting scope that is used. (In the situation where vignetting appears, which causes darkening around the periphery of the image, the iPhone 5 digital zoom can be used to allow imaging without vignetting.)

  • Connection to spotting scopes is also possible by using together with the digital camera adapters.
    The adapter can also be mounted on spotting scopes through using it in combination with the “TSN-DA1/DA10” digital camera adapter and the “TSN-AR30” adapter ring, which are currently being sold for use with Kowa spotting scopes.
    This allows the adapter to be fixed more securely to the spotting scope to enable stable images to be captured.

  • Capture of images with reduced camera shake can be carried out by using the iPhone earphone button as the shutter release.
    It is possible to operate the shutter release of the iPhone4/4S by pressing the “+” volume button of the iPhone earphones provided as standard.
    This will be highly effective for reducing the camera shake which occurs in telephoto imaging.

Phone DIGISCOPING TIPS

Due to the unrivalled high magnifications that can be achieved in digiscoping, it can be a challenging but also very rewarding method of telephoto photography. Try the following useful tips to help you get the best from your iPhone digiscoping experience:

1. We recommend that you attach the supplied neck strap to the iPhone/Galaxy holder and wear it around your neck whilst in use.

2. If possible - use your iPhone headphones as a remote shutter release. The less contact you make with your phone when taking the shot, the less chance of camera shake resulting in a blurred image.

3. A sturdy tripod with a good, smooth video panning head is highly recommended to keep your digiscoping setup stable. Good light is essential in digiscoping resulting in faster shutter speeds to help freeze the motion of your subject and minimise camera shake.

4. Good light is essential in digiscoping resulting in faster shutter speeds to help freeze the motion of your subject and minimize camera shake.
