"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 more time photographing birds in Cornwall and abroad with my Nikon D850 and 500mm F4 lens, some results of which are posted on the swopticsphoto blog.
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), Manfrotto and Velbon tripods. We also stock Fujifilm, Sony, Nikon and Panasonic digital cameras and can offer advice when using them for the growing Digiscoping hobby.
