For iOS or Android: with the VPA, its variable phone adapter, SWAROVSKI OPTIK is launching a flexible all-rounder that is compatible with most smart phones on the market.
The phone adapter quickly and easily connects SWAROVSKI OPTIK spotting scopes or binoculars with your phone to create a super telephoto lens, allowing you to dive into the amazing world of digiscoping. The convenient way to capture unique observations and detailed close-ups.
Attaching the VPA is incredibly easy. Use the clamps to adjust the width and height of the adapter to the size of your smart phone and the position of the camera. Three different adapter rings are available for connecting to your SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and spotting scopes. This is done by attaching the correct ring to the corresponding eyepiece cup in the screwed-in position. No special tools are needed. The anthracite-coloured adapter is light yet rugged thanks to the use of fibreglass-reinforced plastic.
Flexible combination options
Current Samsung, Huawei, and iPhone* models (not iPhone 4!) and most HTC, LG, and Google Phone models are compatible. Use the diagram to check the compatibility of particular smart phones – it shows the smart phone’s maximum and minimum height and width as well as the appropriate camera position.
The following binoculars and spotting scopes can be connected to smart phones using the VPA: CL Companion, EL Family (32, 42, 50), EL Range, SLC Family (42, 56), BTX, ATX/STX, ATS/STS, ATM/STM, and STR. All the phone’s operating features are accessible while using the VPA.
