a good camera will be as good as a good set of binos.....for spotting animals the binos are best.for taking photos of game the camera is best,for getting a better look at game you have found with binos....nothing beats a spotting scope....
if you after really good heads and pass up smaller ones the spotting scope will save your legs....if you happy with any animal,the spotting scope is surplus to requirements.

Unless you are really fit, a spotting scope can be a real pain.  Once 'barren' topography will now be viewed as chokka full of donks, conveniently forgetting that all those donks are 2-3km away over gnarly terrain. A days work easy Shocked

I have taken some good pics of groups of animals @900m with the Swaro 80 power spotting scope, with a digital camera adaptor attached. mobs of 2-3 animals only just fill the screen Shocked
