Hey ABA Blog readers- I recently saw this video showing the new PhoneSkope C4 universal phonescoping adapter and thought it was pretty intriguing. I haven’t put my hands on one yet (I’m hoping to get one to review soon) but wondered if any of you have tried it? If so please leave a comment with your thoughts about it.
The twist-on piece that adjusts and locks onto the eyepiece looks especially neat. If it works as promised this would be excellent to bring on birding tours where you may be looking through different scopes (always ask permission first before digiscoping or phonescoping on someone else’s rig) or for switching between your scope and bins without needing any extra adapter parts. Good to see companies like PhoneSkope continue to innovate!
