"Welcome to South West Optics"
I set up South West Optics in Truro in 1996 as a retailer of
high quality optical equipment. My main interest is birding, a
hobby which I have been involved in since boyhood. Recent improvements
in Digital SLR technology has meant that I have spent time photographing
birds in Cornwall and abroad with my Nikon D3x and 600mm F4 lens,
some results of which are posted on the swopticsphoto
Needless to say, the shop specialises in supplying optics and
camera equipment to the birding market and other related outdoor
products. As a user of the equipment, I offer knowledgeable product
advice to suit your requirements.
South West OPTICS are officially appointed Main Dealers for Leica,
Carl Zeiss, Swarovski, Nikon and Opticron. We also stock a full
range of low-vision aids (magnifiers), nature cameras, Manfrotto
and Velbon tripods. We also stock Leica and Nikon digital cameras
and can offer advice when using them for the growing Digiscoping
|Our shop is sited within Truro
city centre where most of our products are on display. We
hold occasional stock demo days in the field, though there
is a long distance view at the shop. Further critical testing
can be done at parkland just behind the shop. If you are
travelling specially to purchase or test a product, please
call beforehand to confirm availability.
We endeavour to offer you the best service, competitive
prices and best web experience that we can.
