The new Leica tripod adapter for all LEICA TRINOVID BA/BN and LEICA DUOVID Full Size binoculars by Leica Camera AG, Solms is a practical accessory for shake-free viewing. The design of the adapter guarantees rigid attachment to the tripod. A base plate optimally adapts to the product in use, while the binoculars are fixed with a rubber strap. The higher the magnification, the more difficult it is to obtain a permanently sharp and steady image when holding the binoculars in one's hands. The Leica tripod adapter is therefore a particularly attractive accessory for LEICA TRINOVID binoculars with 10x and 12x magnification and LEICA DUOVID Full Size binoculars. Besides offering enhanced comfort for longer periods of use, the attachment to the tripod also protects the binoculars against damage caused by knocks and falls. The use of the Leica tripod adapter is not confined to Leica binoculars: the adapter is also compatible with other makes of pentaprism binoculars.
The Leica tripod adapter will be on sale at Leica stockists' from February 2002.
