Konus camera adapter

by Joe, from United States, AZ Written on August 26, 2014
I ordered this device sight unseen for use with a much larger camera. The salesman apparently misunderstood that I wanted a device to attach a Canon EOS T2i DSLR with a 58mm lens to my Konusport-100. The device I received is for use with a much smaller digital camera. I chose not to sent it back as I do have an older Canon S40 (with unfortunately much lower resolution) that might work.

I am still interested in purchasing a suitable device if any such thing is available.

P. S. - this review is far too complicated - too many must-do things - I had trouble getting it sent, and this will probably be the last time I bother reviewing anything....

Really cool!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 21, 2014
I saw videos on You Tube where the shooter was taking videos through their rifle scope. I thought that was pretty cool, so I ordered this adapter. I was disappointed to find the switches on my Leapers scope prevented this adapter from attaching securely onto the scope. After replacing my scope with an older scope, the adapter secured well. There is an adapter provided to extend the distance that the camera needs to be from the scope for eye relief.

Adjusted properly, you can see the pellet as it's traveling downrange, and as it hits the target. I'm going to try this on my rimfire and centerfire rifles when I get the time.
Pros: Not cheap plastic. Adjustability to center camera on the lens.
Cons: Does NOT work well with switches near the eyepiece on scopes like the Leapers Illumination Enhancing Reticle scopes where the buttons are near the eyepiece. ...
Would recommend: Yes

Fun to Use

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 8, 2013
Glad I bought this device. I have used it at the shooting range to view target hits without having to look through the scope.
Pros: It is a simple device.
Cons: Works best with a digital camera without a protruding lense....

Good camera holder

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on February 7, 2011
This holder works pretty well. It attaches to the eyepiece of the telescope by tightening a clamp. It uses a screw to attach to the camera standard hole. It adjusts left/right and up/down to align the camera to the eyepiece, and, once aligned, you can lock it in place with another screw. It also includes an extender bar to move the camera further away (in case the camera has a long lens). Unfortunately, my camera (Canon A540) fits right in between the standard platform and the extender, but I managed to make it work. I wish it would have a little more flexibility for a better fit, but it still worked. I'd recommend it for any camera (still or video).
Pros: Works well. Adjustable to fit many cameras and telescopes.
Cons: Needs even more flexibility....
Would recommend: Yes

Does not fit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on January 19, 2011
This camera adapter was included as a free item. I can see why it is free, because it does not fit the spotting scope. It also came with an adapter sleeve that also does not work with the scope or the camera adapter.
Pros: none
Cons: Does not work with the spotting scope....
Would recommend: No
