SonySony DEV binoculars can record HD video and features 3D : Sony introduced the world’s first digital binoculars that are able to record in AVCHD 2.0 video format. The new Sony DEV binoculars are perfect for nature / bird watching, the binoculars from Sony can record Full HD video with stereo sound at the touch of a button, and even add a 3D mode that records scenes as stereoscopic video footage for playback on most 3D HD-TVs. The new Sony DEV-3 and DEV-5 digital binoculars will be available in November 2011. The Sony DEV-3 binocular carries a retail price of $1400 USD and the Sony DEV-5 binocular is priced at $2000 USD.

Users can select the variable zoom on both binoculars to scan a wide area at low magnification before zooming in seamlessly to pinpoint a subject, such as birds in a field. Turning on the digital zoom at magnification settings over 10x boosts the Sony DEV-5 binocular to a total magnification range from 0.9x up to 20x digital (image quality is reduced when digital zoom is on and recording 2D video at magnifications higher than 10x), rivaling many high-powered conventional binoculars. The Sony DEV-3 binocular pulls wildlife, sporting subjects and architectural details closer with a maximum magnification of 10x optical. In 3D mode, the maximum magnification for both Sony DEV binoculars is 5.4x optical.

Sony DEV binoculars with electronic auto-focus
Unlike traditional binoculars, electronic auto-focus keeps moving subjects sharply in focus at all times. A comfortably positioned dial allows fingertip adjustment of manual focus - ideal for focusing selectively on a subject, rather than overhanging branches or other obstructions in the field of view. Electronic auto-focus allows both Sony DEV binoculars to focus cleanly on subjects less than half an inch away when recording in 2D (minimum of 32 inches when recording in 3D mode).

Separate images for left and right eyes are captured by a matched pair of precision G Lens optics by Sony with “Exmor R” CMOS sensors and powerful BIONZ processors. Independent electronic viewfinders provide clear, detailed pictures for left and right eyes, offering a stereoscopic viewing experience that’s comfortable, natural and highly immersive. The new Sony DEV binoculars feature a “stealth” design that eliminates distracting buttons or external details that could reveal a user’s position to wildlife.
