The FLIR universal camera adapter allows you to quickly and easily attach your digital camera or camcorder to your night vision device (NVD). A mounting rail secures the adapter to the NVD’s mount, and thumbscrews hold the adapter securely in place. A block with a ¼” photo screw on the adapter can hold cameras weighing up to approximately 500 grams. The adapter can then be easily adjusted by moving it in three axes, in order to precisely align the camera’s lens with the NVD’s eyepiece. The solid construction of the rod and adjustment bar ensures that your camera and NVD stay firmly connected. The adapter is suitable for all FLIR NVDs that include adapter rails, or other NVDs with similar rails or adapters. All standard, compact digital cameras, smaller camcorders, and other cameras weighing up to 500g can be used in conjunction with the universal camera adapter. The camera and NVD can be attached to the adapter very quickly. The process of aligning the camera with the eyepiece is also very simple, allowing users to easily take photographs and record video at night. The adapter can be mounted to any tripod with a standard ¼” photo screw.
