    Not sure how they will hold up to recoil with a small point and shoot digital camera but will do some testing and report back.

    My Panasonic Lumix has a 20x optical lens so I am confident that it will pick up on a deer at 100 - 200m.

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    The camera-scope mount arrived today - 12 days after order - China to Seattle. I ordered 3 of the same and the US Postal delivery person left a small box at the door.

    In theory these should work. The design looks sound to me, a non engineer type, and the finish is very clean - as pictured.

    I am of two minds as to test the theory at the local range because I don't have a supressor here and the recoil might be too much. Will definately bring this kit to NZ in a few weeks and post an update.

    Weight:
    Clamp - 105g
    Clamp plus Camera - 308g

    here are some photos

    Sweet , Mine should be here soon too , Can you rotate it enough to mount the camera to the side?

    I have not tried to rotate everything so the camera is off to the side but there is plenty of adjustment / pivot points on the mount to do just that.

    If you receive the same quality product as I did, I think you will be pleased with the mount.

    Now the real challenge is to go out and find something to shoot that is worth putting on video - and post it on the NZHS Forum !

    I am still debating as to a test at the range on a non suppressed rifle. The photos I posted were taken in my office at home - Sako A7 in .270 WIN - pimped out with fluted barrel and bolt, McMillan Sako Varmint stock, Minox 4-10 x 50 scope mounted with Warne Maxima rings.
