Working with a variety of digital cameras, the Vortex Camera/Scope Adapter makes digiscoping a reality.
Regardless of whether you use a DSLR or point-and-shoot digital camera for digi-scoping, you'll need a threaded ring to connect the lens of the camera to the Vortex Digital Camera Adapter. Vortex includes several ring options with the Viperdigital camera adapter. Choose between 30mm, 37mm, 43mm, 52mm, 55mm, and 58mm threaded rings. The Vortex Viper Digital Camera Adapter works with the following camera types:
- Digital SLR Cameras (DSLR): Connect the Viper spotting scope to a DSLR camera body with a fixed 50mm lens. The 50mm lens of most digital cameras has a 52mm thread, but you will need to choose the specific adapter ring that fits the threads of your DSLR camera lens.
- Point-and-Shoot Digital Cameras: Connect the Viper spotting scope to a point-and-shoot digital camera that has no more than a 3-4x optical zoom. In order to digiscope with this adapter alone, your camera will need filter threads. Most point-and-shoot digital cameras do not have filter threads. For point-and-shoot digital cameras without filter threads,you can purchase the PS-100 attachment which provides the required 37mm threads needed to connect to the 37mm Viper digital camera adapter ring.
