Snapzoom Mobile Phone Digiscoping Adapter and Giveaway

Many thanks to my good friend Erin Lodin who I worked with at sometime ago. Since leaving there, Lodin has been working with a innovative company producing a product called Snapzoom thus developing digiscoping adaptors for mobile phones.

Snapzoom offers the facility to use binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes and microscopes as accessory lenses. These devices use high quality glass lenses to increase the power of the smartphone’s camera, and produce rich, tack-sharp macro and telephoto images, as opposed to using your inbuilt digital zoom on your smartphone.

Snapzoom are currently offering a giveaway of a pair of Bushnell binoculars or a Snapzoom Universal Digiscoping Adapter – To enter the giveaway, share your favorite Snapzoom photos of summer fun. Just tag your photo #Snapzoomcontest.  Every photo you post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #Snapzoomcontest is worth two entries.

  • With or without a case, Snapzoom is compatible with any smartphone up to 3.67in. (93mm) wide, and nearly 1in. (23mm) thick.
  • Snapzoom works with a wide variety of optics and accepts any eyepiece with an outside diameter of 1.18in. (30mm) – 2.17in. (55mm) wide, and a min. 1in. (25mm) in height. *Snapzoom is not compatible with rifle scopes.
  • Snapzoom is designed to attach to both binocular eyepieces for a stronger less stressful connection. This unique feature, along with the counter-weight accessory, keeps the phone in the “landscape” filming position for easier to watch videos.
  • Snapzoom works with all standard and third party camera apps that use the rear camera. The camera retains all of its functions, including autofocus, auto exposure, and face recognition.
