Canon SD4000IS for Digiscoping

Kevin Bolton has been digiscoping with the Canon SD4000IS the past week or so and I’m thinking seriously about buying one based on his results. The SD4000IS will attach to bracket style adapters (Zeiss scopes), but it will also work with a DCA (Swarovski ATM/STM, Kowa Prominar, Vortex Razor scopes) by using the Vortex PS-100 attachment. The camera has a 3.8x optical zoom, 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, 720p HD movie capability, and a large LCD monitor so you can nail the focus. Best of all, you can find this camera brand new for around $220.00.

  1. Though given its ability to be used in less desirable weather, I'd be curious how the Canon Powershot D10 (or its eventual replacement) works for digiscoping. I've abused my current digiscoping camera, with problems coming during bad weather. The D10 looks to be the answer, though I haven't seen anyone attaching it to a scope.
