Simple to operate with a wide range of automatic functions

The Victory Photoscope is as easy to use as a ZEISS spotting scope and as intelligent as a digital camera. Even for users with no prior knowledge of photography, the Victory PhotoScope can be put to use immediately for game and nature observation. Use it as a spotting scope with an outstandingly large field of view and up to 45x magnification and set it to Auto mode to let the intelligent electronics decide on the right photographic settings.  Alternatively, as an experienced photographer, adjust the settings yourself to get the perfect shot. This device is so easy to use that you can start out as a beginner and soon turn into a professional.

Super-telephoto lens for photography

The Victory PhotoScope is the ideal way to capture a special moment in a photograph:  it has a 3 x zoom lens with low light capability and a focal length range of 600 mm to 1800 mm (similar to a 35 mm format camera) plus an outstanding nominal lens aperture of 1:2.4 to 1:3.3. Preserve your most beautiful observations for ever.

Unrivalled wide angle optics for observation

A spotting scope with a field of view of up to 80 m! Unlike conventional eyepiece zoom solutions, the special lens construction of the Victory PhotoScope has resulted in a unique, wide angle system that covers the entire magnification range, and perfected for quick observation. The subjective angle of view of 68° (80m/1000m) at 15 x magnification is both unique and unrivalled. You can observe objects at magnifications of up to 45x and see even the smallest details in the overall view.

Brilliant FL-concept

The unrivalled brilliance of the natural colours and the outstanding image brightness result from the use of high-performance fluoride glass. The FL-concept means you will hardly see any chromatic aberrations. Even the finest details are pin sharp with impressive colour reproduction – images that please the eye. The challenge was to combine an optical image with photography. A beam splitter is used to create this brilliant image, both for visual observation via the eyepiece and for digital photography.

Robust, weatherproof housing

The Victory PhotoScope 85 T* FL was designed to offer spectacular observations and nature photography. Snow, rain or storm conditions prove no obstacle to performance. The optics and electronics are enclosed in a sturdy housing while the robust, scratchproof rubber armour stands up to even the most challenging outdoor conditions. Furthermore, the black outer shell prevents the reflection of light, which could give away your position when photographing wildlife - making it perfect for use when hunting wary game.

Shake-free telephoto lens

Compared to SLR cameras with their hinged mirrors, the beam splitter creates an image in total silence and - more importantly - with no shake on the 7 megapixel, low-noise CCD sensor. Photographs can also be taken using an electronic remote control. This also serves to avoid shaking, which can be a serious problem at such extreme focal lengths. This gives you the sharpest photographs, even at long range and maximum magnification.

Bright OLED screen

Whether you want to look at your photographs or change the parameters, the large, bright 7 cm OLED screen is the perfect solution. The screen can be folded out and swung round. This means you can show your fellow observers the target in question quickly and easily. If you are not using the photo function the screen can be fixed securely onto the side of the scope.

Autofocus-Assist function

Get some help with focussing. The specially developed Autofocus-Assist function makes corrections to the manual focussing where necessary, to compensate for minor focussing errors and ensure you still get a sharp image.

Video function

Special moments often consist of more than a single image: a movement, the interaction between wild animals and their environment. These moments can now be captured in AVI video format. You can use the live screen to track your filming and recreate the unique live experience.

Innovative lens coating

Enjoy fascinating image quality whatever the weather. The LotuTec® coating ensures that water simply rolls off the lenses and dirt can be removed easily without a trace.

Versatile menus

Alongside the automatic functions you can choose from a wide range of manual settings, such as the manual entry of a colour temperature to achieve the desired white balance, ISO values from 50 ASA, spot measurements, bracketing function, series lighting or lighting control using histograms. This means even advanced users can enjoy maximum freedom and creativity so that the most can be made of both photographer and equipment.

Connection options

It is easy to communicate with various different media so that you can get more out of your captured experiences. The Victory PhotoScope offers a range of options for you to transfer your photographs to your computer quickly and simply. Alongside the SD card slot, a 1 GB SD memory card included in the scope of delivery, there is the option of a USB connection. Naturally a direct connection to the mains power supply is also supplied.
