If you are looking for a way to record footage and take photographs
with your smartphone through your binoculars or scope, a new concept
called the Snapzoom might be worth more investigation.
The Snapzoom universal smartphone scope adapter has been designed to
make it easy for you to attach your smartphone to the eye piece of your
scope. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Snapzoom
project and see it in action.
"the device simply connects and
aligns a smartphone camera with the eyepiece of an optical scope. The
scope then becomes an accessory lens, and the smartphone camera’s image
is magnified by the power of the scope. For example, the iPhone 5’s
camera is equivalent to a 33mm lens field of view. Adding a Snapzoom and
the average 10x power binocular increases the size of the image to a
330mm lens field of view.”
The Snapzoom project is currently over on the Kickstarter website
looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to
production. So if you think Snapzoom is something you could benefit
from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Snapzoom become a reality.
