Swarovski Snap Shot Adapter S3 for EL 42 Swarovision Binoculars
This adapter is for all Swarovski EL 42mm Swarovision Binoculars
Swarovski Optik's Snap Shot Adapter forms the link between a binocular and a digital camera resulting in clearly focussed snapshots at long range. Perfect for nature observation and long distance photography.
Until now it has only been possible to take digital photographs of what is observed through binoculars with either a lot of time or a lot of luck. Now all that has changed. The Snap Shot Adapter, developed by Swarovski Optik, is an ergonomic and sophisticated little ring which turns the binocular into an objective lens. Using this trick it is possible to capture, in extraordinary pinpoint detail and over huge distances, moments which would otherwise be irretrievably lost.
All that is necessary for long-distance snapshots, in addition to the appropriate Snap Shot Adapter, is a Swarovski EL or SLC binocular and a digital camera with an extendable optical zoom. Setting up requires just a few small movements - the Snap Shot Adapter is centred on the camera's extended lens by turning the control disk and is then pushed onto the binoculars' twist-in eyecup, which has been twisted out to receive it.
What happens next is fast and smooth. All you have to do is simply hold the camera to the adapter. Using a supporting surface or a tripod makes for even sharper and more precise photos. As the Snap Shot Adapter is designed as a centring aid and not as a holding device, you can switch rapidly and flexibly between observing and taking photos although it is essential that you always have the camera's handle looped around your wrist for safety.
