Quick and accurate long distance aiming at objects using tele or super tele lenses is not as simple as it seems to be. A narrow field of view makes the photographer hunt for a while until the object appears inside the frame. This waste of time might cost the photographer the perfect shot. The Tokina Super Tele Finder Lens is a convenient accessory for photographers who practice long distance tele shooting like birds, celestial bodies, auto racing, fireworks, airplanes or animals.
The purpose of this accessory is not just to assist in aiming but even in tracking the target in a quicker and more accurate way. Suggested to use with a tele or super tele lens like the Tokina SZX 400mm F8 Reflex, the Tokina SZ Super Tele Finder Lens features a one-piece slim metal body with no moving parts. This simple design and robust built ensures long life with less chance to break in tough situations, unlike other brands that uses mostly plastic materials. Tokina SZ Super Tele Finder Lens requires red dot calibration before shooting. For this purpose there are two screws for vertical and horizontal adjustments on the top and left side of the unit. Unlike other brands, adjustment screws of the Tokina SZ Super Tele Finder Lens do not come out from the surface, so the chance of accidentally shifting the adjustments is much smaller. The Tokina SZ Super Tele Finder Lens incorporates a shake sensor that detects small impacts and moves in 3 dimensions. When the unit is not in use (stays still), sleep mode will be automatically executed in 3 minutes to prevent battery power loss. Power will go OFF if the unit is not in use for 5 hours.
