The aim of the study is to develop a universal optical device to increase the capabilities of modern compact digital cameras and camcorders. The device, possessing high technical and consumer characteristics, will allow substantially improving the scale of the obtained images. Camera adapter includes front interchangeable lens, rear interchangeable lens, interchangeable eyepiece, the system for changing the distances between these. The camera adaptor may also serve as an instrument of visual examination of objects. A working dummy compatible with microscope, telescope and designed to operate as fotosniper was developed. These capabilities allowed obtaining high quality images of both moving and static objects. The methods of work were tested using the dummy. The method of work included mental experiment, physicotechnical modeling, designing and outdoor shooting. The device can be used for scientific as well as for domestic purposes. In case the manufacturers of digital photo equipment get interested in our work we are eager to cooperate in any form.
