Wildlife Photography 4 Reticle Sight – for when you absolutely have to capture that photo on the go


If you’re serious about your wildlife photography, you’ll want to make sure you’re properly equipped when you go out to shoot the various critters that wander past your front door every morning. Of course if you live in the wilds of Alaska, those could be very interesting things indeed, but even us boring urban dwellers have a chance at some cool shots.

This Wildlife Photography 4 Reticle Sight is designed to help you lock on to a fast moving target, such as a diving bird, to ensure you get the very best photograph you can. We have to confess we’re not absolutely sure why you’d need this, but we’re assuming if you’re shooting at very long distances with a telephoto, it can be difficult to make out whether your target is perfectly in frame.


So anyway, next time you fancy a wander round your neighborhood on the prowl for shots of the local tomcats, maybe you’ll be thankful that you have one of these to capture their delightful antics as they scurry about in the dark. The unit is priced at $49 and features four patterns and four different dot sizes for improved accuracy.

  • My experience is that with a long telephoto it can be difficult to even get a fast-moving target in the frame. I’m definitely in the market for this – for aircraft as well as wildlife.

  • I’ve been using a red dot sight for years at airshows. Once you get them lined up for full telephoto, it’s a snap (no pun intended) to take photos of fast moving objects.
