Sony DEV-50V Digital Recording Binoculars Preview

30% smaller than their predecessor, Sony has announced the DEV-50V Digital Recording Binoculars. In addition to simple world observation, these digital binocs also capture up to 20.4-megapixel still images as well as HD video in either three or two dimensions. Twin Sony G-Lenses funnel light into dual Exmor R CMOS image sensors and the BIONZ image processor, which, in addition to ensuring vivid and colorful images and videos, helps the camera's super fast Auto Focus (not found on your father's binoculars) and adds a few creative bells and whistles. Although there is no optical viewfinder, Sony supplies twin OLED Tru-finder eyes pieces (2.4 million dots each).

The DEV-50V's optical zoom range is different for video and still images. With a 35mm equivalent of 36.3-2007mm, or 25x, you're going to love the built-in Optical Steady Shot to ensure blur-free still photos. 3D / HD Movies can also access the 25x zoom range, but only with Digital Zoom turned on; for cleaner recordings, we recommend sticking with the 12x optical zoom.

In addition to all sorts of inputs and outputs, Sony's newest Digital Recording Binoculars offer Hyper-Gain Mode, for seeing in ultra-low-light scenarios almost like Nigh Vision, and Sweep Panorama 360, the easiest way to capture wide-angle panoramas.
