    Snapzoom SZ-1.5 reviews

    Universal Digiscoping Adapter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Digiscopting Adapter This product can be a little challenging to attach to larger binoculars. When using a Galaxy Note 4, the on/off button tends to get triggered even with the provided padding to lift the adapter away from the cell phone buttons. In addition, even with tightening to capacity, the phone has a tendency to come lose from the adapter. The biggest issue is the phone getting turned off because the tightening required to hold it on the adapter presses the phone button. However, if you get your phone on the adapter and focus the binoculars correctly, you can get good terrestrial images. With larger binoculars that have higher magnification, you are not likely to get good celestial images because you need a very steady tripod and a larger celestial object. Smaller objects (like Jupiter, Saturn, Mars) will only show up as a blurry dot. But I have been able to take great daylight terrestrial images of objects over a quarter of a mile away with me cell phone using this adapter with 25x binoculars. But this adapter is just a piece of plastic, so it seems overpriced at about $65.00.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you plan to use it a lot Interesting system, but cumbersome if you're going to set-up and take down, or if you use it only occasionally. Since I wasn't going to do that much photography I returned it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All around good product It's mostly plastic, so make sure there is a secure place in your bag. The screws, threads, etc. are all metal which I appreciate. The counter weight doesn't feel like it will hold, but it does work well. The clamp to fit over your binocular or monocular eye piece holds well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Works great with my Iphone 5S & Iphone X Does what it says it will do. I use it when I shoot my rifle at targets on the range. I can just look over at the phone after each shot and instantly see the impact. Works great on binoculars or a spotting scope.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from so-so adapter I've had this adapter for over a year. Adjustments are very finicky, and it takes unacceptably long to attach your phone to the scope--by the time you're done adjusting everything, the wildlife you were observing is likely to have moved on. I would not buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snapzoom Works as advertised. Takes good pictures and video. Only issue I can find is that it's the only way to use binoculars when it's installed. I found myself wanting to take it off to use binoculars. Great product though.
