Vixen Optics T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Canon EOS Cameras USA

You Pay: $29.95
Product Highlights
  • Made in Japan

There are many inexpensive T-mount adapters on the marketplace, but if you want one that works really well you should consider one from Vixen.

Vixen's T-Mount SLR Camera Adapters are meant for use with their various methods of mounting SLR cameras to the rear of their telescopes, but obviously they can be used for anyone who has a T-mount system lens and wants to mate it to their SLR camera without any real trouble.  Many, if not most, of the inexpensive T-mounts will get stuck to the camera or lose adhesion to the lens; with the Vixen models, the superior workmanship really limits the incidence of these kind of annoyances.  Depending on how much you use it or how expensive your camera is, it may be worth springing for the extra quality that Japanese manufacturing delivers.

Please note that on many modern DSLR cameras, the T-mount lens and T-mount combination will only work on the camera with the camera in the "M" manual exposure mode.  Additionally, the most advanced metering modes usually don't work with the T-mount.

      Tight fit - better than others

        Comments about Vixen Optics T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Canon EOS Cameras:

        This T-ring is so snug that I have to almost force any movement in it. The detent is near perfect fit, but aside from that, it really clamps down snug onto the camera. Other T-rings are fairly loose by comparison.

        If you're looking for something that won't let the camera to shift its position as the telescope slews, this is it.

            This T-mount adapter works well to attach a T-mount telescopic eyepiece to my Canon 5D. Quality of material appears to be excellent. More expensive than other T-mount adapters but still small change compared to the cost of the camera and scope.

                  Have not used cheaper, similar products available but can attest to the fact that this works beautifully. Attached to both the camera (50D) and Prime Focuser (Tele Vue) flawlessy.

                    I use this to mount my 5D MKII to my Meade LX200 and Leica spotting scope - works perfectly. Looks quality.

                    Comments about Vixen Optics T-Mount SLR Camera Adapter for Canon EOS Cameras:

                    I got this to mount my Canon 5DM2 on a Meade EXT. Of the available T-ring adapters this Vixen product received reviews suggesting it was one of the best. I tested this for one afternoon shooting birds on the Illinois River and the T-ring firmly held the camera to the telescope, proving to be reliable enough that the camera became a part of the telescope. It is well worth the money.

                      Excellent, well machined, fits the camera mount like a good lens would. It cost more than other T-mounts but if you value your camera it's worth the extra cost.

                          This T-Mount is made well as are all Vixen products and fits perfectly on my Canon EOS Rebel T2i. Does the job attaching to my Meade adapter well. This T-Mount is Pricey compared to others. Good Product.
