What are you folks using to digiscope with an Iphone. I have been on the fence about the Kowa adapter and the Meopta adapter for quite some time mainly because I have yet to see any photos taken through it. Anyone have experience with either, or another option?

I have taken pics without an adapter and it is a PITA.... for me.

Just trying to see what is all out there... I run a 80mm Swaro if that matters.

Was thinking about just going ahead and getting the Tines Up system and being done with it, but since I have my phone along most all the time, why not try and make that work.

Thanks!

Judge for yourself.

Nice - every time I take pictures in the field with my Iphone 4s they look good but when I get them on the computer they never look as good.

Thanks for the pics, I'll be ordering a Phone Skope adapter soon as I always have my phone with me too.

Back in February a bunch of folks were about to move forward with Phone Scopes.
Was wondering how that worked out. Can photos be crisp. As needed for bird shots?
What success/frustrations have you had?

The Greater PC was taken at 150-200 yards and the Lesser was probably 25-30. These were with a Razor 85mm and a Droid Razr phone. The biggest obstacle is getting the phone to focus on your subject. It kept focusing on the grass. I will be able to give you a better opinion after using it this summer for scouting. I like the video with the phone because you can hit the button and then back away to prevent any movement. Need a delay on the shutter for photos. I haven't looked into that yet, but think that it is a possibility.
