    Default Fieldscope/Lenses for long distances...

    Hi,

    I would like to capture objects of size 2m x 2m out at range of 2-3km.

    Are there fieldscope/lenses that can capture up to this distance?

    I'm using a Canon 350D possible and would like to fit the camera to the fieldscope/lense.

    Thanks for advising!

    sorry I only know nikon fieldscope it has a camera mount if you have nikon to canon body moung adapter it should work in manual focus mode. Such ring adapter cost from 80 to 250.

    YMMV

    resolution wise, if u are intending to buy the $700 nikon scopes ED50/ED50A http://<br /> and $700 is the price....php?pageid=87, i would suggest u forget it... even when using the eyepiece and looking thru the scope, the pic are of low contrast and FLAT colours...not appealing at all...

    IF really want to get, get the ED82/ED82A... settle for nothing less than this. And for the ultimate in scoping experience, get a swarovski or leica instead

    And if u want to attach a dslr to shoot, u got to shoot at F13 http://www.nikon.com.sg/pagearticle.php?pageid=91

    F13 is almost impossible to shoot wildlife....even at bright sunlight, at iso200/400, the shutter speed is at most 1/60s...

    what do you mean you got to shoot at f13. i have seen some people using the drsl and a fieldscope and yet they get good images.

    It definitely can give good images if ur scope is good. f13 is the apeture size, if u got a small apeture such as f13, u need to use a slower shutter speed to shoot... with a slower shutter speed, u need a very sturdy tripod and a subject tat doesnt move much. its hard to "freeze" wildlife with a fast shutter speed with a scope..

    take a lot a lot of times lor....try and try and try again...
    they should also have a very strong flash & up the iso value to help them maintain a decent shutter speed even at low apeture. but upping the iso affects the picture quality..

    birds wise, still got chance of taking good pics, because especially in the afternoon, birds like to perch up high high on one of the tree branches in a corner with very very little movements.. but if want to take pics of birds flying with a scope, forget it...
