Hello Eagle Optics,
We are contemplating purchasing the Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 Angled Spotting Scope. We are interested in also trying digiscoping. We presently have a Rebel XSI and are considering upgrading to the 18 megapixel model. I have been reading so much on digiscoping and was wondering if you feel the Canon would be a good fit or are the point and shoot better cameras for digiscoping? I have a Nikon 4300 only 4 megapixel older one.
Thank you for your advice.
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.
Either the Rebel or a point and shoot like the 4300 (with a below 4x optical zoom) will work well.
For the DSLR, you'll need a fixed 50mm lens (the zooms won't work).
For the point and shoot, you will need this PS100 platform (if your 4300 doesn't already have a filter thread adapter).
Once you have those 2 pieces, you'll also need this DCA: http://www.eagleoptics.com/digital-camera-adapters/vortex/vortex-razor-digital-camera-adapter
Then you should be in business.
If you have further questions, feel free to give any of our staff a call.
