Compact camera for Digiscoping with ATS80 HD?

Would anyone know a new compact camera that would work with my Swarovski ATS80HD with the DCA Zoom adaptor? I have minimal carry space so am trying to be as compact as possible, hence trying to work with this adaptor. It doesnt fit my current compact camera, so am hoping to buy something to suit? The new generation dont seem to have the screw on the body for the adaptor to mount, so I'm really not sure of how to find a camera, and thought someone might have experience of such?
I currently use the 25-50 zoom lense, but have others if needed.
thanks very much

Hi Adam, I use the Nikon p6000 with the dca adapter. Ive mostly used it with the 20-60 zoom but have recently started using it with the 25-50 zoom. It's a handy camera in that the dca screws on directly to the camera via the ur-20 adapter. If you can find one secondhand I would get one.

You could also try using the jackar adapter which enables most compacts to be used with the dca adapter.

Regards Gerard.
