Kowa TSN-VA3 High Resolution Video Digiscoping Adapter for TSN-880 and TSN-770 Spotting Scopes

About this product
AUD
Maximum quantity available reached.

The Kowa TSN-VA3 High Resolution Video Digiscoping Adapter is designed for use with Kowa TSN-880/770 Series spotting scopes. It is suitable for telephotography using the collmination method with small-sized video cameras, digital cameras (with high zoom magnifications of around 7 times), and DSLR cameras, and attaches to your scope like any normal eyepiece.

Built with an awesome new optical system, this video digiscoping adapter is capable of optimising the optical performance of your TSN-880/770 spotting scope. It controls aberration to the maximum periphery of the image, and by additionally suppressing axial chromatic aberration; which often causes problems in super-telephotography, it’s possible to view and photograph higher quality images.

In addition, 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.

The TSN-VA3 will allow you to use your SLR camera with its attached lens, and we’d suggest using either a standard fast 50mm lens or a short telephoto such as an 85mm f/1.8 or 100mm f/2.0, etc. Your SLR lens doesn't do the focusing, so if you're buying a lens just for this task don't consider the focusing speed as it relates to digiscoping; all that matters is the optical quality, maximum aperture, and peripheral brightness at maximum aperture. With a maximum clear light-gathering aperture of 88mm and the potential to capture that light at f/2.0 or f/1.4, the TSN-VA3 with TSN-88 scopes presents a serious competitor to a 600mm f/4, 500mm f/4, or 400mm f/2.8 lens so favoured today in professional birding imaging.

  • When carrying out digiscoping using digital SLR cameras, there may be situations where the autofocus function cannot be used.
