Will Meopta adapter fit the iPhone 5 and 5s?

I was wondering if the Meopta Meopix 49 mm iPhone 5 Adapter, DCA-MP-561000, would fit the  iPhone 5s.  I think the case size should fit, but I am worried about the camera placement.  Will this be able to be tested out next week when the phone becomes available?  I am getting the new phone and want to replace my old 4s meopix adapter.

Thank you,



Hi Melissa,
I just got off the phone with Apple Tech support and they told me that the camera placement is the same on the iPhone 5 and 5s, so the adapters for the iPhone 5 should be compatible with the new phone.

Best regards,

Need accessories for my Canon IS binocular

Hi EO Folks,
Do you know of a binocular eyepiece protector that will fit the Canon Image Stabilized 10x42 L WP Binocular?  I just bought the , and it's a little too small.

Thank you, 



Hi Brian,
I pulled that binocular from the warehouse, and the found that the best fit is the Vortex Binocular XL Rainguard.

If you'd like, you're welcome to return the other rainguard to us for a refund, according to our Return Policy.

All the best,

Is my rainguard defective?

Dear Eagle Optics,
My binoculars just arrived today. They’re magnificent! It’s an excellent product and I’m sure I’ll be very happy with them.

One minor thing, however. The lens caps that that go over the viewing lenses (the lenses you hold right up to your eyes) appear to have a tear. Would you please be kind enough to send a replacement? Thanks. Picture attached.

Best regards,


Hello Luis,
Thanks for writing with your question and glad to hear you are enjoying your binoculars. 

That gap in that side of the rainguard is there by design.  When you have the covers on, you can make it a little more secure by putting that around the neck strap.  But when in use you would like them to fall away to one side so that they don’t ride up the neck strap and into your mouth or some other position where they get in the way.  They are meant to swing off to one side of the strap to get out of your way, essentially. 

Best wishes,
Eagle Optics

Need a small, lightweight tripod

I just received a from you.Unfortunately, it is way too bulky for my needs.

I have a new compact .  When I ordered the tripod kit, I had the impression that the legs would be on the thin side and the unit would fold into a much smaller package.

Before  I return it, what would you have that will deploy quickly, is light weight , and fit into a 19in. package, for my small Vortex scope?

Thanks for your help . Any input would be very welcome.

Dear John,
Thanks for your inquiry.
The folded length of the you bought has a folded length of 19.2". 
For travel, remove the center column (with the tripod head) and place it next to the legs for the smallest possible package.

Keep in mind that depending on your height, you will be raising the center column up--maybe even to its limit--to get to your eye level with your straight-bodied-scope.  Which is why you may want to keep the tripod you have until you evaluate one of these. We have a 30-day Return Policy. Remember too, that you get what you pay for.

In any case, you said you're looking for a lighter-duty setup. Here are some recommendations:

Manfrotto 190Go Tripod Leg  (You would need to purchase a tripod head with this. A lighter option than the one you have is:  Manfrotto 700RC2 TripodHead 

Please call if you have any questions. We'll be happy to take additional measurements for you.

All the best,

Eagle Optics
