Can you get crosshairs on the lens that don't change the POI when you zoom?
I am waiting for a scope/rangefinder/camera for paintball.
I can mount my camera to a scope now but the crosshair changes when you zoom.Which will change the POI.
I always like to encourage people to "go for it" and not get discouraged.
If it doesn't sell , make a better one.
In my previous setup (used for the paintball video I posted), the crosshairs were a feature of the camera and the camera wasn't inline with my scope (a Lucid HD7) so, the impacts would not coincide for any distance other than what I set it to, and it's a fixed zoom. I will not include such a crosshair going forward unless I feel it adds to the value of the video (I got mixed reviews in the past). With a high zoom system, it becomes pretty obvious what you're shooting at for the most part but, I could add one in in post processing.
You're saying that if you have a zoom capable lens on the back of a scope, that the point of aim changes when you zoom in? If so, that's an issue of alignment. With a red dot and a flip out magnifier, the reticle will shift it's position if the magnifier is not properly aligned.
