Nikon Introduces New Fieldscope Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L2

August 20, 2009

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to present Fieldscope Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L2 for use exclusively with Nikon EDG Fieldscopes and Nikon D-SLR cameras.
The Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L2, which has 3.5x zoom and 500-1,750mm (f/5.9-21) focal length, used together with the new EDG Fieldscopes enables super-telephoto shooting with Nikon D-SLR cameras. The D-SLR camera's Aperture-Priority Auto Mode can be used when the camera is connected to the FSA-L2 and EDG Fieldscope.
The new EDG Fieldscopes have been developed to provide excellent optical and mechanical performance, not only for observation but for digiscoping as well. The FSA-L2 features a bright optical path with fully multilayer-coated lenses. The combination of EDG Fieldscopes, the FSA-L2 and Nikon D-SLR cameras allows the capture of beautiful moments with high precision and superb image quality.

Combination example:
EDG Fieldscope 85 + FSA-L2 + D700
