The SKATER Scope is the first truly compact periscope lens system providing all the creative freedom you want.
As it is considerably shorter in its overall length than comparable systems, with clear operating controls, the SKATER Scope makes it possible to work quickly and intuitively. The length is still sufficient in critical light situations, to avoid an interfering cast of shadows from the camera body.
The movable tilt module can be adjusted from -105° to +105° and engaged in any desired 2.5° increment. The SKATER Scope can be used as a straight version (borescope) and as a bent version (periscope) with any desired angle. The lateral offset between the tilt module and the main snorkel body is only 50 mm. The whole lens block can be pivoted into any desired angle and fixed with a pivot lock ring. A detailed scale shows the precise angle of pivoting.

With an aperture of T 5.6, the SKATER Scope is an ideal compromise between size and light transmission and is still faster than comparable systems of similar complexity. The calculated aperture is 4 1/3, the light loss 2/3 of a stop.

The SKATER Scope is another sample of the well-known high quality products by P+S Technik. The whole optical arrangement was newly calculated for the Super 35 format and the pupil position of most current lenses such as Arri/Zeiss Ultra Primes, Zeiss HS T1.3 and most Cooke S4 lenses. The excellent image quality and an extreme flat field with minimized vignetting is ensured even in the low aperture range.

Via a separate Image Rotation Ring the image can be rotated 360° around the optical axis (even several times) without restriction. This feature is also used to level the horizon or to achieve “dutched” camera angles without altering the position of the camera. A 0.8 module gear makes it possible to control the image rotation with standard lens control systems. By means of a macro adjustment ring the close focus can be extended to macro.
