Camera for Digiscoping with a Vortex Razor Scope

Hi -

I presently have a Vortex HD Razor HD 20-60x85 Straight Spotting scope, the Vortex Razor DCA-VT-RZR-DA (both purchased from Eagle Optics!), and use an old Nikon P6000 as the camera. Recently, the P6000 has died and I am in the market to purchase a camera that fits my present Vortex set up. I am a Nikon user so would prefer that but other manufactures are fine.

 I appreciate any compatibility advice you can give me to help me outfit this great scope.



Dear Steve,
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.

Basically any point and shoot with a small body and below 4x optical zoom will work, Nikon or otherwise.
The market changes so much and so fast that I can’t recommend a specific camera to work.

If the camera you buy to use with the Razor Digital Camera Adapter (which I’m assuming you own and have been using?) does not have a filter thread adapter made for it, you’ll need to get a Vortex PS100 bracket to provide the camera with 37mm filter threads:

Hopefully this answers your question.
If not, our staff will be happy to help.
