December 18, 2007 A new compact digital camera adapter for spotting scopes is among the sports optics offerings from Pentax expected early in 2008.
The PENTAX UA-1 digital camera adapter will allow users to attach almost any compact digital camera to the PENTAX PF-80ED or PF-65ED series of spotting scopes while the new series of PENTAX DCF SW roof-prism binoculars includes two models, an 8x25 and 10x25. They both offer a dual-hinge design that folds to be ultra-compact and are waterproof and nitrogen-filled for advanced waterproof capability in a slim, portable design. The PENTAX 9x28 DCF LV high-end roof-prism binoculars feature a maneuverable, lightweight, waterproof and impact-resistant design with an advanced optical system that offers a bright and clear field of view.
All three product models will be available in February 2008 with prices ranging from USD$70 for the PENTAX UA-1 digital camera adapter, around USD$180 for the PENTAX DCF SW binoculars models and USD$250 for the PENTAX DCF LV.
