Leica 42220 Overview

  • 1Description

Quickly and easily mount just about any binocular onto a support system using Leica's Binocular Tripod Adapter, even if the optic isn't equipped with a traditional mounting hole. A reliable and sturdy elastic rubber belt stretches over the optic and snaps into a retaining clip on the base — securing it without marking or damaging the binocular's chassis or armor. A 1/4"-20 mount on the bottom makes it compatible with most photo/video/field tripods, plus an array of other support systems, like window mounts and monopods.

    Binocular Tripod Adapter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job but could be better. The adapter works well but there's a couple things to keep in mind. The rubber strap presses down on the binocular hing so it can change the distance between the pupils. Secondly, some tripods may not work well. That's because the tripod adapter extends out on both sides from the tripod head. In my case, I can't lock down the piece that screws into the camera because the tripod adapter prevents the flip lever from turning. So now I have to go in search of a suitable knob, round and with a metric thread to replace the lever. Overall, the product is sturdy and seems to work well...but I am limited as to which tripod I can use it on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product ! I bought the Leica Universal Binocular Tripod Adapter for my Swarovski EL 10x50 Swarovision Binoculars. I am really impressed by the build quality and ease of use of the product. It should be compatible with most of the porro-prism 8x to 15x binoculars. Once the binoculars are strapped on, they stay in place. I was hoping to purchase the Swarovski adapter but swarovski optik is absent in my part of the world. Though few binoculars and spotting scopes are available online, it's difficult to find accessories in India. I must thank B&H for the quick and safe delivery of the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Universal I use this tripod adapter for my Leica 42mm HD's and for my Swarovski 50mm binoculars. It works well for both, it has two sizes, one perfect for the 42mm and one that works well for the 50mm. The adapter is very well made, I think the rubber is the same quality as the binoculars. There is a screw at the bottom that I have fitted an attachment from a quick release tripod head to. I use it primarily for my monopod...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Triod Adapter by Leica I wanted to use my Leica Trinovid BN 8X42 binoculars to observe the night sky, and wanted a very stable platform. This adapter works beautifully! I attached an Arca Swiss-style mounting plate to it so that I can mount the binoculars easily on my Gitzo tripod and Arca Swiss ball head, and it is as stable as one could imagine. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Well-built and its rubber and grooved construction nicely secures the Ultravids with no harmful abrasion of the binocular finish. I use it with an attached Bogen Hexplate - so it rapidly and securely binds to the tripod ballhead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works flawlessly As a guide i am alway's looking for a way to simplify life in the outdoor's. This product has made it easy to switch between my window mount, trip-pod for spotting scope to binocular's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed! Super easy to use and very accurate adjustments. I thought it was pricey, but then considering the cost of the binoculars, I decided to spring for it. Wow - definitely worth the price!
