Thread: Smartphone adapter to record stills and video from optics

  1. #1

    Default Smartphone adapter to record stills and video from optics

    I ran across this adapter, which positions the iPhone4 in perfect alignment to the camera lens and specfic optics, i.e. spotting scopes and binocs. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...g_Adapter.html



    Fantastic idea, since you can:

    1. reliably shoot photos/video of the critters you are observing,
    2. multiple viewers could observe the image at the same time without readjusting the optic
    3. immediately send off via email a recorded still or video clip of an animal


    Unfortunately I do not use either the iPhone4 nor the spotting scopes/binocs this thing is built for. My combination is the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone and the Minox HG 10 by 43 BR binocular.

    Does anyone know of a universal adapter or perhaps a point of contact within the Minox company that I could address my question to?

    Kowa also looks to have an iPhone adapter. Looking at the specs on it I bet "tines up" could make conversion kits for other scopes.

    another iphone 4 adapter. It looks simple enough to modify for another brand of phone. Just drill a new lens hole. Make pads for the various dimensions of the phone case.
