Product Feature: Sony DEV-5 Digital Binocular with HD Video Recording

Product Feature: Sony Digital Binocular with HD Video Recording

Think of it as a trail camera that lets you observe wildlife in real-time. Earlier this year, Sony launched the first product of its kind in the United States, the DEV-5, a digital binocular that records HD video with incredible magnification capability. It allows the user to observe wildlife from great distances, making the user essentially imperceptible to the animal in view.

From the DEV-5  press release,

Ideal for watching and capturing wildlife and sporting action in steady, sharply-focused close-up, Sony’s new binoculars has a 3D record mode that captures the scene as a thrilling stereoscopic video footage. Variable zoom allows users to scan a wide area at low magnification before zooming in seamlessly to pinpoint the distant subject.

By turning on digital zoom at magnification settings over 10x, the DEV-5 boosts total magnification range from 0.9x up to 20x, rivaling many high-powered conventional binoculars. Unlike traditional binoculars, electronic autofocus keeps the subject sharply resolved at all times and even in motion.

An optical stabilization system keeps images clear and stable, even when looking at objects far in the distance. The camera binocular can be connected to a television for big-screen viewing and it is powered by a high-capacity rechargeable battery pack (NP-FV70) that will last for three hours on a single charge.

The DEV-5, which offers digital zoom extension up to 20x and includes a GPS receiver to auto-geotag video clips, is currently priced at $1,999.99. While its GPS-less, 10x zoom counterpart, the DEV-3, is going for $1,400.
