Sony has launched a new pair of digital recording binoculars in the form of the Sony DEV-50V, which has been designed to be 30 percent lighter than previous models and splash- and dust-resistant.
The new Sony DEV-50V digital recording binoculars are capable of recording full AVCHD 2.0 video with stereo sound or capture 20.4 megapixel still photos when required.
Sony has also now fitted the Sony DEV-50V with new independent XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinders to the binoculars that provide improved resolution and contrast for left and right eyes, and separate images for left and right eyes are captured by a matched pair of precision G Lens optics. Hidenori Toyoda, director of the camcorder business at Sony Electronics explains:
“With the DEV-50V, you can observe wildlife in a way no other binoculars can achieve,”-“Couple that with its ability to capture impressive photos and video, and you have an innovative device that outperforms the competition on all levels.”
“Unlike conventional binoculars, electronic autofocus keeps moving subjects sharply in focus at all times, eliminating the need to focus manually as your scene changes. Electronic autofocus allows the new binoculars to focus quickly and cleanly on subjects far away in high magnification and on subjects less than half an inch away when recording in 2D (minimum of 32 inches when recording in 3D). And with Optical SteadyShot stabilization (Active Mode) on board, images remain balanced and blur-free, even for viewing at high magnifications when image stabilization matters the most.”
The Sony DEV-50V digital recording binoculars will launch this June at a retail price of around $2000. For more information on the new Sony DEV-50V Digital Recording Binoculars jump over to the Sony website for details, and the full press release.
