Here are some valuable tips to help you get the best video quality recordings:
1. Use a good scope with a decent lens and larger Objective.
2. Use a quality camera for recording;
any action camera with a minimum HD ready at 240FPS is preferable.
3. Obtain a good quality fixed camera lens.
4. Ensure that your scope and camera are setup correctly.
5. Use less magnification with your scope; youwill notice improved quality by using a fixed magnification, e.g. 10×44
(We do not recommend over x 10 magnification with most common scopes on the market).
6. An optical zoom is preferred over a digital zoom, which makes a lower image quality.
We hope these tips will help you to get the best quality from your equipment.
