I purchased a Digidapter for my Swarovski X series scope. I planned to
use my Panasonic GX1 & 20mm pancake on the adapter.
It arrived with me in the U.K after around 2 weeks, most of which was a
As a digiscoper that spends a lot of time promoting, teaching and advice
giving, the Digidapter interested me because it looked like a good
quality, third party adapter that would hopefully be a solution for
those that don't want to spalsh out on brand adapters.
The adapter was very well machined, and fitted the scope perfectly. the
mounting platform was solid also and attached to the eyepiece section
with ease. I was even lucky enough to have the new style "locator pins"
in my parcel!
My main concern with all platform style adapters is the re-alignment of
my camera after I have taken it off the mounting platform to change

|Hi there, I haven't much experience with these cameras for scoping, but for some reason I think they just don't work for scoping. Probably a vignetting issue. It wouldn't matter what adapter you tried, the vignetting would still be the same I fear. If u have a scope then try holding the camera to the eyepiece of the scope and see how much (if any) vignetting there is. Sorry I can't be clearer here. Regards, Danny.|
