    For the past couple years that I have been into the longrange hunting thing, I have been trying to video some of my hunts. Just this past season, I videoed three hunts out to 1015 yds. The other two being 730, and 570. None of my videos are worth a crap. So I purchased a used, but like new GL2 camera to video with for the upcoming season. I tried videoing some deer with it after season went out at some decent yardages, but it didn't do any better than my cheap camera. I looked into buying a telephoto lense. WOW! Not paying that kind of cash for a zoom lense.
    Recently, I found a video on youtube called "tinesup". After watching all their videos, I ordered the kit they sell on their website "tinesup.com". Their kit is inexpensive compared to the price I got in my GL2, not to mention if I would of bought a lense for it.
    Anyway, I got my new setup, and it is sweet. I should be able to see bullet impacts at extremely long distances. (Depending on how bad the mirage that day).
    Just thought I would put the info out there for anyone looking for longrange videoing. I wish I would of known about this kit I got 5 months ago.
    Anyone want to but a Canon GL2 video camera with extra batteries, 2X lense, wide angle lense, hard case, and charger? Excellent close range camera. Not good for distant recording.

    The day I received mine, I recorded a tree hut at around 1800 yds through my 15X56 swarvoski binos. Just ordered a 15-45X65 vortex spotting scope with adapter 2 days ago, so I can hopefully witness bullet impacts at 1000yds.
    . I can't wait til hunting season. Or summer velvet footage. My video is awesomely clear too.
    Hope I was helpful.
    Reggie is the guy I talked to when I was trying to figure out what I needed. Great guy. Very helpful.

    I too was going to get one of their kits and decided to just get the Kowa iPhone adapter that works with most of the spotters with the same size eye pieces. In this case my Swarovski HD spotter. I think I paid $50 for the adapter and my phone takes just as good of pics and movies as most cameras and is smaller.

    There is also a company now called phoneskope or something like that and they make them for just about every phone out there.


    Here is a few pics I have taken. This buck was at 800 yds.

    That's pretty cool.

    I made one for a spotting scope I had, (sold it) but it worked pretty good

    thats great jarhead. Thats the kind of video quality I'm after. My old sony, and the GL2 doesnt even come close to comparing to your picts.

    oldmossy you should have no problems with that setup. I was going to buy it many times and was always just holding my cell phone up behind the spotter. Only problem was getting it centered and keeping it there. That's when I found this little adapter and decided to give it a go. That kowa one also comes with an adapter to use with my swarovisions.

    I'll have to learn how to post picts and videos on here, and on youtube. Never tried it before. How hard is it?

    Leaving work. Chat at yas tomorrow.

    Josh,

    I usually either just email them to myself and when I get them on my desktop I can view them on the big screen and do whatever I want with them.

    Or when I plug my iPhone into my computer for a synch the memory of the iPhone appears as a hard drive type of device on my computer and I can directly transfer them onto the hard drive of my computer.

    Hope that helps.

    Bob
