Getting Started

Introduction to Digiscoping

The Nikon digiscoping system employs a "collimate shooting method," which means that the digital camera is set just behind the Fieldscope's eyepiece to capture the observed image. In this method, the shooting focal length is a product of the Fieldscope's magnification and the digital camera's 35mm format equivalent focal length, thereby allowing super-telephoto (close-up) shooting. There are a variety of brackets and attachments available to connect a Nikon Fieldscope eyepiece to a digital camera, making it a breeze to take super-telephoto shots.

What You Need To Get Started

The equipment you need depends on what kind of pictures you want to take. Set up an easy-to-handle system that best suits your needs, whether it is primarily for viewing or for taking pictures. You will need a fieldscope, eyepieces, a bracket/attachment and a digital camera. Whether you are setting up a system based around your current equipment or purchasing new equipment, we recommend that you give considerable thought to your set up.

The Results

You can take close-up pictures from locations even more distant than normally possible with regular telephoto shooting using an SLR camera. Amazingly enough, super-telephoto shooting is possible, allowing you to easily capture close-up images of timid birds, animals and other difficult-to-approach subjects.
