Transform your mobile phone into a super telephoto lens. Now you can combine the high quality camera and HD video functions of your phone with the power and quality of a spotting scope or binocular to create an ultra-compact, high quality super telephoto lens. The Kowa Phone Adapter marks a true innovation in the world of digiscoping and opens up this once expensive and technical hobby, to even the most basic and inexperienced user. With ease the adapter allows you to maximize the high photographic qualities of your iPhone’s camera with the super optical zoom power of a scope or binocular. The results are truly spectacular!

It couldn’t be simpler to start taking magnified images or HD video with your phone and optical equipment via the Kowa digiscoping adapter. Simply slide your phone into the holder and screw on the appropriate adapter ring - that’s all there is to it - then push the adapter over the eyepiece of your spotting scope and you’re ready to digiscope - the whole process takes seconds. For those who prefer a more solid and permanent connection between phone and spotting scope - the adapter is compatible via an adapter ring with our DA10 collar - which can be screwed in to larger eyepieces and locked into place. Phones are a great way to digiscope - the large highly detailed screen is perfect for composing your image. You can also use your headphones as a remote shutter release for hands free operation (iOS5 operating system required). Thanks to the connectivity of your phone, you can quickly upload and share your unique and high quality images with friends, family and the rest of the world online! 

Phone DIGISCOPING TIPS

Due to the unrivalled high magnifications that can be achieved in digiscoping, it can be a challenging but also very rewarding method of telephoto photography. Try the following useful tips to help you get the best from your digiscoping experience: 

1. We recommend that you attach the supplied neck strap to the phone holder and wear it around your neck while in use. 

2. If possible - use your phone headphones as a remote shutter release. The less contact you make with your phone when taking the shot, the less chance of camera shake resulting in a blurred image.

3. A sturdy tripod with a good, smooth video panning head is highly recommended to keep your digiscoping setup stable. Good light is essential in digiscoping resulting in faster shutter speeds to help freeze the motion of your subject and minimize camera shake.
