FEATURES

  • The TSN-VA3 Photo & Video Adapter is a dedicated adapter for the TSN-880/770 Series spotting scopes that is suitable for telephotography using small-sized video cameras, digital cameras with high zoom magnifications of around 7 times, and digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. (When using this adapter, please use it together with the separately available adapter ring and the universal mount system.)

  • Due to the use of a new optical system that is capable of optimizing the optical performance of the TSN-880/770 spotting scopes, aberration is controlled to the maximum periphery of the image, and by additionally suppressing axial chromatic aberration which often causes problems in super-telephotography, it has been made possible to realize higher quality images.

  • By greatly widening the apparent field of view, it has become possible to capture images without vignetting at wider camera angles. Further, introducing the subject for photographing into the viewfinder has also become easier than before. *
    Converted to 35mm format: Imaging without vignetting is possible from approximately 55mm. (Depending on the type of camera, vignetting may occur.)

  • The TSN-VA3 Photo & Video Adapter, which has been further evolved from the TSN-VA1/VA2/VA2B, also supports use for digiscoping (collimation method photography) using digital SLR cameras.

NOTE

  • * This adapter cannot be mounted on TSN-660/600 Series or old model spotting scopes.

  • * For carrying out digiscoping using small-sized video cameras and digital SLR cameras, be certain to use the TSN-DA3/DA3st Universal Mount System.

  • * Note that when carrying out digiscoping using digital SLR cameras, there may be situations where the autofocus function cannot be used. Additionally, in the situation of connecting the Photo & Video Adapter with the interchangeable lens of a digital SLR camera using the adapter ring (TSN-AR), some interchangeable lenses may require the digital SLR camera autofocus function to be released. In this situation, photographing should be carried out using the manual focus of the spotting scope.

  • * For large-sized video cameras and digital cameras with high zoom magnifications of 8 times or greater, there may be situations where peripheral darkening of the image will occur. In these situations, it may be more appropriate to use the long eye relief TSN-VA2B Photo & Video Adapter.
