WORKS BUT FALLS SHORT OF EXPECTATIONS.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WV Written on May 4, 2011
Purchased the Barska digiscoping adapter for my Barska Benchmark 25-125x88mm spotter scope.The purpose of the photography is primarily for using at our summer home near Chincoteague/Assateague Is,VA.There the wild ponies and water birds abound for great close to long range photography.The good thing is YES the adapter will work with my HP Photosmart 620 point shoot camera.Even the automatic power saver is fine when the camera shuts off.This causes the lens to retract away from the spotter lens,and the adapter clamp does not hold it.What photos I have taken are focused.They are not vignetted as the camera zoom was able to take that out.Unless I wanted it in the shot.What is undesirable is the fact the adapter mounts on the spotter where you rotate the magnification zoom of the spotter.Just the weight of the adapter & camera when you touch it causes the entire unit to move due to the way the spotter zooms.If there would be away to change the mount to attach differently,or employ a lever zoom on their spotters models would help.What is will be,and until changed by Barska has to be worked with.I was not successful using the adapter & camera at higher magnification than 25X due to spotter focusing,and point abliity.The more narrow the field of view the more difficult to align the camera.Other than some of these problems with point of mounting,zoom,movement,and high magnification focus & pointing it does,and will work.Just do not expect your spotter to take the place of a true came...

Digital camera adapter

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AR Written on September 22, 2009
If your just trying to mount a simple "small" point and shoot camera to a spotting scope/telescope, then this is the product for you. I have used a few cameras on this adapter in the last few days. The Nikon Coolpix L20 ran out of useable mount(couldn't zoom as far as I wanted to reduce vignetting) and the Kodak Z1485IS is in the same catagory. Don't even think about using a camera such as the Sony SX10IS, it will not even come close!

The mount itself has some 'play' in it that can be taken care of with some extra grip when tightening the thumb screws. I don't want to over tighten, as I think it would break.

The mount attaches directly to the eyepiece and does not swing away for easy viewing throught the eyepiece. If you need fast eyepiece views and camera positioning, this mount will not do that.
Pros: Great value
Cons: Needs more room...
Would recommend: Yes

Barska Digiscoping Adaptor AF10540

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 25, 2007
I used this adaptor on a two different spotting scopes, a telescope and a binocular with a digital Cannon Powershot A530. With trial & error I obtained adequate d-pictures at distance. A strong stable tripod is recommended. Remember to turn off the automatic power saving on the camera.
Pros: Good adaptor for digital scopes
Cons: Instructions could be better ...

Barska Digiscoping Adaptor AF10540

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 25, 2007
I have used this adaptor in biology classes on microscopes where I got some fantastic shots and videos of protozoans and multicellular organisms. Also, have used it on telescopes to attempt to get planet pictures (the problem is with the telescope, not the adaptor!). But, with a larger-lensed camera, you need an adaptor to move the camera farther from the scope. Besides that, it is great!
Pros: Gives fine control connected to microscope, telescope, binoculars, etc
Cons: Doesn't work well with larger digital cameras, such as a Nikon 5700. Apparently, needs and adaptor not described in the item description....

Barska Digiscoping Adaptor AF10540

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on July 24, 2007
Too cumbersome to use. You must remove the zoom collar rubber sleeve so the adapter will fit.

I would not buy this brand again.
Pros: Fully adjustable mount for flat pocket cameras
Cons: Doesn't fit over Barska 2-60x80 eyepiece without removing rubber zoom sleeve....
Would recommend: No
