Digiscoping....

....is the art of mounting a digital compact, DSLR, compact systems camera or smartphone....

....to the eyepiece (or dedicated adapter) of a spotting scope....

....resulting in a super telephoto style camera set up....



 
 Hi There!!
 

My name is Danny Porter, I am 43 years old, live in Lowestoft, Suffolk, U.K. and have been digiscoping for the last 11 years. In this time I have learned how to digiscope with all types of cameras, adapters & spotting scopes.
Then, because of my own strugglings and money wasting at the beginning I decided to create this website to help anybody that was thinking about digiscoping and to have a place where anyone could come for advice.


Companies such as Swarovski Optik, Nikon U.K, Carl Zeiss, Viking Optical & Opticron have all loaned me equipment to play with.


I am a brand ambassador with Swarovski Optik and represent them at trade shows accross the U.K as well as providing one to one courses with the very latest Swarovski Optik equipment to learn on!

In 2014 & 2015 I visited the Swarovski Optik Factory in Absam, Tyrol and was trained in the use of all of Swarovski's Optics! I am now a certified trainer and can provide information on all current products.




At the time of writing this, I am still the only digiscoper to offer beginner courses. Bring your own equipment or use the very latest set ups from myself and Swarovski!

I have spent a long time learning (and still am) digiscoping so I am now in a position where I really can try to help one and all!

If nothing else I pride myself on being honest and true. I will always tell you what I think you need to do to succeed!

There has never been a better time to try digiscoping. Modern cameras, scopes and adapters are making it easier than ever. 


All you have to do is try!!

Anything can be arranged to suit YOU!

My aim is to help as many as possible with digiscoping. I do this by trying to provide a modern website, with modern reviews, modern lessons and a reasonably modern host!

I can offer you the chance to actually get your hands on and learn for yourself!

No enquiry is to small. I'll help you with anything, and I'll always reply to any emails, personally!

Digiscoping has evolved. The "Heath Robinson" element is truly left behind in the wake of modern equipment. Hoever, no matter what you invest in equipment, the best thing that you can invest is time & practice!
