Digiscoping and Digital Birding

Digiscoping and Digital Birding

Stéphane Moniotte and twenty enthusiasts around the world are a new breed of bird-watchers / photographers who have been nicknamed “digiscopers”. They shoot with modern megapixels digital cameras through spotting scopes. The combination of the digital camera and the scope magnifies the image to the power of over 2000 mm lens equivalent of the conventional 35mm film format. Birds photographed this way are candid and natural. Even for shy birds, no hide is required...  

The website gives you a more detailed description of the technique and results from information collected since the early days of digiscoping, and has been greatly expanded with the help of many international contributors. New contributors are welcome, as digiscoping is still an evolving science. Articles on technical aspects of digital photography (Tips and Tricks) can be submitted too.
