Equipped with synchronized light path, the BUSHNELL 111545 spotting scope allows you to switch between digital camera and spotting scope and capture a moment of perfection. A powerful 15X-45X zoom eyepiece brings objects 15-45 times closer than your naked eyes can see. The large 70mm objective lenses gather more light, making a brighter image. Take in the view at high power through bright, crisp multi-coated optics, or on the 2.5" flip-out color LCD. And take it home with digital images or even videos stored on your SD card. With flawless 5MP resolution, this spotting scope might be just the one for you!
It ain't much
This review is from: BUSHNELL 111545 5.0 Megapixel Imageview 15–45 x 70mm Image Capture Spotting Scope
Pros: Pretty nice optics for the price. The view is sharp and clear, without much color separation. The the zoom (15-45x) is good and brings things in close so you can get a very good look at your subject. Comes with a decent (but not great) table-top tripod, shutter release cable, and USB cable. Easy to connect to a computer and upload files.
Cons: The 5mp digital camera is pretty pitiful. It can't handle extremes very well, the color is off, and the video is grainy, noisy and choppy. I think the cheap camera in my cell phone might be better than this one. The camera only uses one zoom setting (22x). The plastic housing seems pretty fragile. It's a lot bigger than it seems to be in the pictures.
Other Thoughts: I don't know of any other device like this on the market, but if you're looking for something to take long-range photos, save your lunch money for a while, or take out a second mortgage on your house, and buy a nice digital camera and a high-powered zoom lens.
