SWAROVSKI OPTIK, a global leader in long-range lenses and binoculars, has announced the launch of its new VPA variable phone digiscoping adapter.

The new adapter will allow travellers to attach SWAROVSKI OPTIK spotting scopes and binoculars to most smartphones, instantly turning it into a telephoto zoom lens and allowing users to take high-quality, close-up images and videos to share with friends and loved ones.

The VPA variable phone adapter’s weight, height and camera recess position can be adjusted without the use of tools and can be easily mounted to SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s binoculars and spotting scopes using three different adapter rings. The adapter is available in an anthracite colour and is light yet rugged thanks to the use of fiberglass-reinforced polymer.

The digiscoping adapter will be compatible with current Samsung, Huawei and iPhone models (excluding iPhone 4) and most HTC, LG and Google Phone models. Digiscopers can then use the adapter to connect their smartphone to SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars and spotting scope models including the CL Companion, EL family (32, 42, 50), EL Range, SLC family (42, 56), ATX / STX / BTX, ATS / STS, ATM / STM and STR.

The VPA variable phone adapter is priced at £132, with adapter rings available to purchase from £25. The VPA variable phone adapter and adapter rings are available to purchase from authorised specialist retailers, as well as at WWW.SWAROVSKIOPTIK.COM.
