Appreciate you posting the pics, David. This device looks promising. I read the reviews on Amazon- not sure how reliable they are. There were a few negatives regarding software, connection drops, etc. Have you had any of these issues?
It seems easy to connect with my phone each time I use it. Have had no problems there. My wife downloaded the Spot Shot wifi and had no problems connecting also. On the bison she was with me and we both were able to look at the spotting scope images at the same time. She could photograph and video just like I could also.
Haven't noticed any connection drops. Down where I was taking the bison pictures I had no wifi connection but had no problem as the Spot Shot sent out the wifi signal and my phone picked it up no problem.
I measured 82 yards a couple days ago that I was able to walk away from the spotting scope and Spot Shot set up and still have the image of me on the spotting scope as I could see it on my phone. I was able to take a picture at 82 yards of me standing there. Well actually my waist down as I just focused on a location and walked in a line with the spotting scope image until it ran out of oomph.
Yesterday when I did video on the bison bull there might be just a tiny amount of lag before the subjects image and it shows on the screen. Watching the bison bull chew his cud and trying to watch my phone at the same time, there was just a small bit of lag before it shows the motion on my phone.
Reliable: have no idea. It comes with that little soft case so to give it a bit more protection and water resistance in the daypack, I purchased in the camping section at Sportsmans a round soft zip case for water bottles. It is just a bit long, but I can put the charging cord and lens wipes in the soft nylon case that comes with the Spot Shot and put that in the round padded case too.
