Which point and shoot camera for digiscoping?



Hi,

I have an Eagle Optics Raven spotting scope with 78mm objective lens and 20-60 zoom.

I would like to start digiscoping and read some of the articles from your website.

Would you recommend any particular camera to go with the spotting scope I have?

Dear Tom,
Thanks for your interest in Eagle Optics.

In order to digiscope with your Raven, you’ll need this adapter:  http://www.eagleoptics.com/digital-camera-adapters/vortex/vortex-universal-28-45mm-small-digital-camera-adapter plus a small-bodied, point and shoot camera with a below 4x optical zoom.

The cameras with high powered optical zoom capability will not work at all, so you’ll want to look for below a 4x optical zoom.

B&H has a good selection of inexpensive point and shoot cameras that should work well with the Raven and adapter linked above.

Thanks!
