Time for a change

By Steve Blain

It was time for a new digiscoping camera earlier in the year, but which one to go for? I couldn’t decide whether to go for another compact camera, or to move up to a micro four-thirds.  A lot of research later and talking to a few friends for advice I made the leap and purchased a Panasonic GX7 and 20mm f1.7 lens.

I will follow this post up soon with one about my current set up and how it connects to my scope – it’s very straight forward.  Needless to say I am very pleased with it and how it performs.  Below are some of the shots I’ve taken during the last couple of months – all of them link through to larger images so please click on them and take a closer look.

All shot using a Swarovski ATS 80 HD with either the 30x fixed eyepiece or the 25-50x zoom.
