Nikon Coolpix P6000
You just can't argue with Kevin Bolton's digiscoping results. Based on the fantastic images he's been able to capture over the past year, I think the Nikon Coolpix P6000 is the digital camera of choice if you own a Kowa or Swarovski spotting scope and you want to start digiscoping in style.
Kevin uses a Kowa 88 Prominar scope and the DA10 digiscoping adapter, which connects via Nikon's UR-E21 accessory adapter and a 43mm Kowa adapter ring. If you’re using a Swarovski spotting scope and want to use the P6000, you'll use their DCA, but the BOW-A4652N6 accessory adapter instead of the Nikon UR-E21. This is because the 43mm adapter ring included with the DCA isn't quite wide enough for the P6000's lens to fit through.
Have a great weekend!
