The UCA Universal Camera Adapter from Swarovski is a stable mounting platform for attaching an SLR camera to a Swarovski spotting scope. This rugged bracket offers adjustments on all three axes for a proper co-alignment of the camera's lens with the spotting scope's ocular. The UCA slides into place over the spotting scope's eyepiece, and it tightens down with a thumbscrew for a secure tension-fit. It's lightweight, compact, easy to use, and it installs in seconds.
Once the camera is in place, focusing is done on the spotting scope - to achieve the desired image, the magnification of the eyepiece can be adjusted while the UCA is in place. This astounding feature facilitates an extremely rapid switch from observation to extreme-telephoto photography. Once the camera is fitted correctly to the UCA it can be removed and reinstalled without needing to realign the system.
Many different camera body/lens combinations are compatible with the UCA - while it's designed for digiscoping with a DSLR, SLR film cameras and some compact digital cameras can also be used. DSLRs with a live-view function permit sighting, and focusing with the camera's preview screen.
Note: The UCA fits all Swarovski eyepieces. Owners of the 20-60x eyepiece will need to get a new rubber eye cup for optimum mounting ease - please contact Swarovski for more information.
