The Leica APO-Televid 65 is a top-class small, compact spotting scope, only 30 cm in length. With 4-part fluoride objective lens system for the best possible color accuracy, image definition and detail. The shortest close focus distance in its class (only 3.0 meters). This angled spotting scope has a rubber-protected magnesium housing and is nitrogen filled, while being waterproofed up to 5 meters.
The automatic eyepiece lock on the new bayonet system ensures that all eyepieces are held firmly in place. The Leica dual-focus system is reinforced by an additional crosspiece. The full rubber protection of the robust magnesium housing which fits comfortably in your hand, absorbs shocks effectively and guarantees silent viewing. On the APO models, an optically neutral front lens glass additionally protects the sensitive optic from harsh weather conditions.
The APO-Televid Aspherical eyepiece boasts optical superiority and durability with its wide angle 60 degree field of view, fully multi-coated lens system, rapid interchange bayonet attachment method, rubberized function elements and twist out eye cup. The nitrogen filled eye piece is submergible to 17 ft. and is completely fog/shockproof.
The Gitzo Two-way Fluid Tripod Head is ideal for use during birdwatching as it can be panned 360º and tilted 110º while providing almost completely frictionless movement. The Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Carbon Fiber Tripod has a load capacity of 22 lbs with a maximum height of 64.4 inches and a minimum height of 12.6 inches while its folded height is 16.7 inches. The Gitzo Series 1 Traveler Tripod and tripod head combined weight is 3.4 pounds and fits easily into a carry-on bag. It is one of the lightest weighing functional tripods.
In order to successfully photograph food, the photographer must first understand the story behind the dish. How and why ingredients are combined can be illuminated through how they are juxtaposed on the plate. Join us on Sunday afternoon for a special presentation with Seattle-based Chef Justin Khanna, who will be discussing his approach to cooking -- and presenting -- food in a way that is visually appealing both for the photographer and for the lucky diner experiencing gustatory Pavlovian anticipation! After learning the story behind the subject, join us in trying to capture the essence of a dish that Justin will bring with him. To see Justin's work, visit his website: www.JustinKhanna.com

Between 1913 and 1914 Oskar Barnack was the head of Development at the Ernst Leitz Optische Werk, a German manufacturer of microscopes and binoculars. During that time Oskar make a prototype camera (now known as the "UR Leica") that took photos using 35mm film. The camera was successful, but because of World War 1 it was not introduced to the public until 1925 when the "Leica" camera met with great success. This first Leica is recognized as the first commercially successful 35mm camera and its introduction changed the world of photography.
In the spirit of the father of 35mm photography, the "Oskar Barnack Wall" will showcase one photographic print per month taken by a Leica Photographer. You can enter your own works by sharing them to our Oskar Barnack Wall Flickr Pool.
