I purchased my Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 Angled Spotting Scope from you last year and I just recently bought an IPhone adaptor from you.
My question is, what are my options for using my Canon EOS Rebel T3i with the Razor? The camera has the 18-135 zoom lens. Would my options be more if I had the 18-55mm lens?
Thanks for contacting Eagle Optics! I hope you’re enjoying your Razor scope. I’ll be happy to help with your question about digiscoping.
Your Rebel would be great for digiscoping, but you will need to buy a 50mm fixed lens for it. A zoom lens won’t work at all for digiscoping. You would also need the Vortex Razor Digital Camera Adapter, which includes several accessory rings. The 52mm ring fits the accessory threads of most 50mm camera lenses.
I would recommend watching our video, Digiscoping Fundamentals, to see your Razor scope in use with a DSLR camera. If you have additional questions, give our office a call. We’ll be happy to help you.
