Digiscoping cameras

Back in December I posted that the Canon A590IS digital camera was being sold on Amazon for the low price of $111. Well just a few minutes ago I was curious to see it's current price online since it was discontinued...now Amazon is selling it for a whopping $240! Yikes. Cross that model off the wish-list, digiscopers!

I'm wondering if any of you have found a new useful digiscoping camera lately. I'm especially interested in models that are small enough to "digibin" with. If you know of any, let me know! Not that I'm shopping for one, but it's always nice to have a finger on the pulse of the market in case my current camera dies.

  2. Maybe you should check my blog. I have been using a relatively cheap panasonic camera DMC-FS8S ($130)for digibining (Most my pictures, except my most recent ones, are digibinned)
    and they are great! In particular they fit perfectly in my Nikon Monarch eyecups!!!
