Snapzoom is Digiscoping for Your Smartphone


I just stumbled on another great Kickstarter find and this time it’s Snapzoom. This product is seeking community funding to build a bridge between your smart phone and binoculars. I really didn’t expect much out of the project until I saw some example footage of some video shot through everyday Nikon binoculars. Snapzoom works with all major smartphones with or without a case. All you have to do is slide your smartphone into it and then attach it to either a dual or single eyepiece scopes. These include binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes and microscopes.

There are still a few early bird spots left at $60 and for those who arrive a bit late can get Snapzoom for $70 over on their Kickstarter page. Below is the promo video for Snapzoom as well as some samples taken with the preproduction model and an iPhone 5.
