Ollin digiscope
« on: April 22, 2024, 06:20:19 PM »
Anybody on here use the Ollin system? Have been looking into it but I run a Nikon spotter and they donít list any Nikon optics. Have a message out to them to of their eye pieces will work for me or if Iím out of luck. Looks like a pretty slick system, anybody got any input on it?

Haven't tried them all, but have tried the Magview and switched to the Ollin. Magview is more universal, but not completely. It wouldn't stay on my Kowa eyepiece, and indexing wasn't great with it. The Ollin is a much better system if it fits your eyepiece. I just keep the case on the phone, it's not too bulky.

Here's a good review of some of the more popular options.

I have the large and small adjustable phone scope system. The new cases are too bulky and the adjustable eye pieces either get ditched to save time or forgot at home so 9/10 times I just hold the phone up and run free hand so really hoping I can figure out a way to make the Ollin work. So far what you guys are saying is what Iíve gathered from research just wanted some input from your guys. Have any of you ran into having a scope that wasnít on their list of scopes and them were able to help find one that would work?

Sounds like you basically HAVE to buy a new spotter to make your Ollin work :chuckle:

You might be able to the size closest to your eye piece but a little bigger and tape your eye piece so it will fit snug.

My wife bought me one for Christmas, but they didn't have a size for my Leupold BX5s. The customer service gal was very helpful in trying to find a size that would work for me. During our back and forth they told me they would be releasing an adapter for my binos this summer so I opted to wait for the right one.

Iím hope for that case with a message back some effort to try and find something that will work for me. Hoping they have some info compiled on eyepiece sizes so I donít have to go to a store with a set of calipers and measure the scopes they do offer  :chuckle: :chuckle:  If I donít get a message back and find some time Iíll put in an actual phone call.

they should have something that will fit your spotter. I talked to them at the sheep show and told me if they didnt have the specific brand there is usually something that will fit.

I bought at the show in Utah and it was too loose on my spotter , I emailed them and they had me mic it out and sent me a new one and shipping label to send back
Great company and great piece
