Phone Skope

What a great month we have had in picking up new, amazing sponsors!  I would like to introduce you to our newest sponsor, Phone Skope!

The Phone Skope is an exciting new product that is going to change the way we photo and video wildlife.  Those that have followed the blog here know that I love digiscoping (digiscoping is taking photography or videos through a camera adapted to work with your spotting scope or binoculars).  I have a couple of different kinds of camera adapters, but I find that I do not always have my camcorder, or nice camera with me due to no space, or rough country or conditions that I don't want to carry that equipment into.  I also find some of the best moments I want to capture is simply during travel, at work, or other times when I don't have all of my gear with me.  So what happens then?  You see me frustrated trying to zoom in on something with my iphone camera!  Enter the Phone Skope!

I may not always have my spotting scope or camera with me, but most often I do have the phone and a pair of binoculars with me, two items much more convenient to carry!  Cameras built into our phones exhibit amazing quality these days, but obviously lack in zoom capability.  How about an adapter so small it can fit in your pocket?  Custom fit to your phone, and to your optics, the Phone Skope adapter is highly effective at converting your camera phone into a high tech digiscoping tool!  Simply click your phone into the case, and slide the setup over your eye piece on your optics, Phone Skope does the rest.  The camera will be ready to take in the entire field of view of your optics, the custom adapter centering the camera in the eye piece, no adjustment required!  Now you are ready to take amazing photos through this simple, light weight set up.

Phone Skope features adapters that are universal for smaller optics, such as riflescopes and binoculars, and adapters specifically for spotting scope models.  

Talk about custom, you can also get your Phone Skope adapter in a variety of colors and even camo patterns.  Be sure to check out their website to see the full range of options.  Remember, they have a setup for almost every smart phone and optics type.  You will not be disappointed!  Visit the site for more specifics on adapter components, even video clips to demonstrate how it all works.

I am excited to receive my own Phone Skope within the next week or two (as soon as I can get to a store to upgrade my phone first) and then to hit the field with this awesome piece of gear to gather some amazing photos!  It should be a blast to use out shed hunting and turkey hunting this spring!

For our readers:  More details to come, but Phone Skope will be hooking us up with a $50 gift certificate to the Phone Skope store!  This $50 could be yours, about all you need to walk away with your own Phone Skope!  Depending on the model, Phone Skopes run between about $50 to $70.  Stay tuned for more details when we officially announce where this will fit into our shed hunting photo contest! 

Again, a big thanks and welcome aboard to Phone Skope!  Glad to have another great product and company backing our site!
