The innovative Sony DEV-5 Digital Recording Binoculars give the bird-watcher, sailor, hunter or sports enthusiast the ability to capture full HD 1920 x 1080/60p 3D video through binocular style lenses. You can sit back and enjoy nature or watch the game from a distance and when the mood strikes, you can start recording or capturing digital still images. The DEV-5 features two G-Lenses, two BIONZ Processors and dual 1/4″ 4.2 MP back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS sensors.
When you do decide to go from spectator to videographer/photographer, the DEV-5 supports 1920 x 1080/60p and 3D AVCHD video modes, as well as JPEG 7.1MP digital stills with a 4:3 aspect ratio and 5.3MP images in 16:9. For storing your work, the DEV-5 features a memory card slot that’s compatible with both Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Plus, there’s a USB port, as well as a Mini-HDMI output for viewing your 2D clips on an HDTV or your 3D clips on a 3DTV.
Owning Sony’s DEV-5 Digital Recording Binoculars also means you’ll only need one device when heading out in the field to view and record the world around you. There’s a GPS Receiver for charting your locations and you’ll never miss a shot while out bird-watching. Plus, unlike traditional binoculars, the DEV-5 features both auto focus and Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode image stabilization. There’s even a mic input, tripod hole and cold shoe for mounting accessories.
