Digiscoping Questions

Eagle Optics,

I want to digiscope with my Nikon D7000 and Nikon S 6100 cameras. Will you please advise me on a scope with a budget of $200 to $300? Also the T ring, T adopters etc and tell me the total cost. I have gone through the web site and video demo of digiscoping.

From R.N.

Dear R.N.,

Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.

Unfortunately you will not be able to digiscope in this price range.

There are several reasons for this:

1. For your D7000 camera to be used for digiscoping, the only manufacturers who make adapters that will accept that camera body with a fixed 50mm lens are Kowa, Vortex, and Swarovski.

2. Your S6100 will not work for digiscoping at all because it has an optical zoom over 4x.

In order to use a small digital point and shoot camera and a universal adapter, you will need a small-bodied camera with a 3-4x optical zoom.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but we are happy to help answer any other questions.
