Pentax Announces UA-1 Adapter to Attach Digital Camera to Scope

Pentax UA-1 Digital Camera Adapter

Want a very long zoom? Attach a telescope to your digital camera! Sure, why not?

Pentax has this UA-1 digital camera adapter that allows you to attach almost any compact digital camera to their PF-80ED or PF-65ED series of spotting scopes, and there, you have a perfectly long zoom to shoot an up-close picture of that tiger’s face from a safe distance.

You can see the Pentax UA-1 adapter at the Las Vegas, Nevada PMA – The Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations’ International Convention and Trade Show from January 31-February 2, and also at the SHOT SHOW 2008 from February 2-5.

The UA-1 was among the new products Pentax announced Thursday, along with the new DCF SW and DCF LV roof-prism binoculars. The new products will be available in February 2008.
