Field Image System
August 31, 2000
Nikon's Field Image System MX is an 80x CCD camera system (equivalent to a 4000 mm lens) that attaches to a Nikon Fieldscope in place of an eyepiece. The Field Image System MX is linked to a 4-inch LCD color monitor via a 6-foot RCA cord. The result is a high-resolution imaging device that allows group viewing or remote observation and can be linked to a camcorder to produce a video recording of whatever is seen by the viewer.
