Sony Unveils HD Recording Digital Binoculars With 2D & 3D Capture

By

New Sony HD-recording Digital Binoculars models, DEV-3 and DEV-5, have been announced. The new models, the “World’s First Digital Binoculars With HD Video Recording, Zoom, Autofocus and SteadyShot Image Stabilization”, allow users to capture “can’t miss” moments in 1080 AVCHD 2.0 video, 3D, 7.1 MP images, and full stereo sound. According to Sony Electronics:

“Now consumers can watch birds, wildlife, sports action and more in steady, sharply-focused close-up views, while capturing their subjects in crisp Full HD. These new models add entirely new levels of flexibility and convenience to viewing, recording and enjoying your favorite images and scenes.”

The binoculars feature an ergonomic grip, a “stealh” design, a rechargeable battery pack good for about three hours of 2D recording, and a GPS receiver which allows for automatic geo-tagging of pictures (DEV-5 model only). Both models electronically autofocus at any magnification (in 2D) and the DEV-3 and DEV-5 have 10x and 20x optical zoom respectively. The new binoculars will be available for purchase for $1400 and $2000 this coming November.

What do you think of Sony’s HD Binoculars? Pretty, neat, right? Maybe we will see some higher-quality fan footage from sporting events this Christmas…visit original post.
