PhotoScope 85T captures 7 Megapixel images
The unique and unparalleled gigantic visual field (subjective viewing angle of von 68°, 80 m/1000m at 15x or 27 m/1000m at 45x) was made possible by a fully new lens concept. In combination with lens elements containing fluoride in an 85 mm lens, which guarantee minimal color fringes and thus a highly brilliant image, user enjoy a very bright, razor-sharp and absolutely natural image. The PhotoScope 85T’ integrated 7 megapixel digital camera enables the simultaneous digital capture of the scenery. Because the camera works without sliding mirrors or similar elements, it is possible to observe and take pictures at the same time with disruptions or vibrations. This permits an ultra-short reaction time that allows picture-taking at precisely the right moment.
ZEISS PhotoScope 85 T* FL offers 1800 mm tele
For all photographers who want a fully outdoor-capable solution with a long focal length, the PhotoScope offers a focal length of 600 to 1800 mm (35 mm format). This means that small objects as close as five meters to faraway objects can be captured digitally in high-resolution quality. The ZEISS PhotoScope 85 T* FL is compact and thus useable anywhere.
Digital ZEISS PhotoScope 85* T FL with OLED display
Special attention was given to an ergonomic design and ease of use. Magnification and focus settings are made using large wheels on the lens. To take a picture, open the 7.5 cm OLED screen on the side of the device, on which the live image can be seen and camera parameter settings can be entered. An IR remote control which can also be used to make all camera settings enables vibration-free release. However, manually entering a color temperature for a specific white balance, ISO values above 50 ASA, spot measurement, bracketing function, sequential shots and exposure control using a histogram are only a few of the additional features implemented into this new concept that also offer advanced camera users maximum freedom and creativity. A standard SD chip is used for storage. The market launch of the ZEISS PhotoScope 85 T* FL is scheduled for spring/summer 2009.
