Morton Bagot, Warwickshire (August 12, 2010) – Sherwoods Photographic Ltd, one of the UK’s Premier Optical Specialist retailers, are proud to announce the arrival of a new product: the Celestron VistaPix 70, a high-quality spotting scope and digital camera in one unit.

The new camera features a 3 megapixel, 70mm digital camera spotting scope, with 14x magnification and a 2” LCD screen. There is also a 6x digital zoom and a digital focus meter, designed to allow a faster and sharper focus, as well as a continuous video capability; any videos or images can either be stored on the camera’s internal memory, or an SD memory card, and then watched back later through a TV or computer via video cable. The camera can be placed onto standard camera tripods or even Celestron computerized mounts for greater accuracy, which eliminates the risk of unwanted movement or vibration when capturing an image or video.

“This is a fantastic product, ideal for hikers, nature enthusiasts or anyone else with a keen eye and a desire to photograph the world around them, and we are delighted to offer it at such a great price,” says Matthew Frost of Sherwoods Photographic Ltd. “The Celestron VistaPix 70 is an incredibly versatile camera, allowing photographers of all skill capabilities to capture the perfect shot with greater accuracy, resolution and zoom level, which can photograph tight, close images or wide fields of view. People can also use the included software to view and organise their images and videos, and by being able to connect the camera to a TV, the high-quality pictures and videos can be presented to family and friends in a wider format than the LCD screen allows.”
