LeicaLeica Digital Adapter 2 : Leica Camera AG, Solms has introduced a new adapter for connecting high-performance Leica TELEVID scopes with digital cameras and camera phones, enabling both observation and digital photography at high magnification through a scope. The Leica Digital Adapter 2 is optimally prepared for use with the new Leica D-LUX 2. The D-LUX 2 digital camera features an integrated image stabilizer for added protection against blurred images in all photographic situations, and is therefore particularly suitable when working with the long focal lengths customary in digiscoping. Clearly readable even in daylight, the bright display of the Leica D-LUX 2 is ideal for frame selection and image composition when digiscoping.

“Over the last few years, digiscoping has become quite a trend. More and more people are discovering 'Birding' as an ideal way to relax and want to record their visual experiences. They want to take high-quality photos of birds to share them with other birdwatchers or document their sightings. Leica offers the digiscoper the whole chain of products: Digital compact camera, eyepiece, digital adapter and spotting scope, all from the one source and with ideally matched optics,” says Boris Bender, Product Manager for Sports Optics at Leica Camera AG.

Leica Adapter 2 - Digital camera accessory
Combined with the Leica TELEVID scope models and eyepieces, the camera provides ambitious bird- and nature watchers with a complete high-performance Leica Digiscoping outfit for nature photography. The Leica Digital Adapter 2 is pushed onto the eyepiece of the scope and fixed in position. The Leica D-LUX 2 can then be attached to the adapter and aligned with a simple clamping mechanism. The user can select one of three aspect ratios (16:9, 4:3, 3:2) by switching a lever on the camera lens and thus capture what he sees in a frame-filling digital photo of impressive quality without vignetting.

Thanks to its extremely flexible clamping mechanism, the Leica Digital Adapter 2 is compatible with a large number of compact digital cameras, irrespective of their filter thread or tripod screw. Even portrait and landscape photos can be taken by simply turning the adapter. For the first time ever, even camera phones can be used for digiscoping applications with the new Leica accessory. This new application, also called phonescoping, is becoming increasingly popular with birdwatchers. The new Leica Digital Adapter 2 will be on sale at Leica stockists from the end of November 2005.
