Overview: The Nikon EDG VR 85-A Angled-body Fieldscope is
the world's first Fieldscope to feature Nikon's lens-shift type Vibration
Reduction (VR) system. The scope includes
the 20-60x Zoom Eyepiece, which screws into the scope body. The fieldscope
comes with a soft, padded neoprene storage case and a shoulder strap. The EDG 85-A
can be mounted to a tripod with a standard 1/4" tripod thread.
Vibration Reduction (VR): Nikon's Vibration Reduction
technology greatly reduces external vibrations caused by wind or the operational
vibrations that occur during focusing, panning, and tilting on a tripod. The
Vibration Reduction system uses two Voice Coil Motors (VCMs) that can control
pitching (vertical movement) and yawing (horizontal movement) to give you rock
Water-Resistant: The EDG VR 85-A fieldscope is waterproof, and
will not suffer damage to the internal optics if dropped or submerged in water
up to a depth of 1 meter for up to 5 minutes. It is nitrogen-filled and O-ring
sealed to protect the lenses and prism from condensation
Multi-coated ED Optics: The EDG VR 85-A features high-quality
Nikon ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass that fully compensates for chromatic
aberration to give you ultra-sharp images with clear details and true colors.
These high-grade optics are fully coated in multiple layers of anti-reflective
compounds for bright resolution and brilliant color.
20-60x Zoom Eyepiece: The included 20-60x Zoom Eyepiece
screw-mounts to the scope body. You can adjust the zoom from 20x to 60x by
rotating the zooming ring.
Power Requirements: The Vibration Technology system is
powered by four AA alkaline batteries, which give you approximately 17
continuous hours of use. The Auto Power Off feature turns off the VR system
after 30 minutes to conserve power.
Digiscoping Compatible: With the optional Nikon
FSA-L2 attachment, you can connect the EDG VR 85-A fieldscope to virtually
any Nikon DSLR camera with an F-type mount. The adapter provides a 3.5x zoom
that gives you a focal length range of 500mm to 1750mm (FX format) or 750mm to
2625mm (DX format).
