    Thumbs up Swarovski Camera Adaptor for Spotting Scope? Anyone use one?

    Has anyone used these to take pictures during their hunts?
    Do they work well?
    And are they worth the $$$?
    Thanks for your help, post some pics that you used it on.

    I bought an adapter for my mini-digital video camera. I see they have one for a point and shoot camera as well.

    I have only fooled around with it in my neighborhood. Haven't taken it hunting yet. Seems ok so far, and quite a bit cheaper than the other camera kits that I have seen.

    which adaptor are you talking about? I have the DCB and it takes incredible pictures just make sure it fits your camera or bring it to the store when you buy a camera to make sure it fits correctly.

    I bought one and then I never really used it. I was all excited about taking amazing photos with it, but I am always grabbing the gun instead of the camera. I think I paid like $400 for it. I am actually thinking about selling it. I would probably let it go for about $250 if you are interested. It is the "BASE DCB-S" model. It's pretty much still new in the original box. Let me know if you want to look at it. I have way too much junk that I never use anyways. I need to start selling some of the gear I never use. ~907~

    Here are some photos that I took with it while scouting for some sheep up "Nunya Creek". I ranged the rams at just over 1100 yards with my rangefinder and snapped these shots through my ATM80 spotter with the help of the camera adapter. They work well. They are bulky, but they are well built.

    PS. The one ram is a heavy double broomer and the other is obviously a beautiful full curl+ Not bad for 1100 yards. ~907~

    Two more photos. Looking at these makes me all excited for sheep season 2013. Both of these rams are still out there.
