Sony Introduces Smaller, Weatherproof Digital Recording Binoculars


From wildlife activity to sports plays and scenic travel views, observing and capturing these moments can easily be achieved with Sony's new digital binoculars.

The DEV-50V model is the second generation of binoculars from Sony. In addition to sensational observing capabilities with autofocus, image stabilization and flexible zoom capability, the DEV-50V can record full AVCHD 2.0 video with stereo sound or snap 20.4 megapixel still photos at the touch of a button.

Now 30% lighter than their predecessors, the splash- and dust-resistant binoculars feature a variable zoom, allowing users to sweep their surroundings at low magnification before zooming in seamlessly to pinpoint a subject, such as deer in a field. Digital zoom on the DEV-50V model allows a total magnification range from 0.8x up to 25x.

The device also features XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinders with improved resolution and contrast for left and right eyes. In low light situations, paired with an "Exmor R" CMOS sensor, the electronic viewfinder brightness on the DEV-50V model is boosted by the newly developed Hyper Gain function. Hyper Gain electronically increases brightness in the viewfinders so subjects can be quickly located and framed in dim conditions.

Electronic autofocus keeps moving subjects in focus at all times, eliminating the need to focus manually as your scene changes. Electronic autofocus allows the new binoculars to focus quickly 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.

Separate images for left and right eyes are captured by a matched pair of G Lens optics by Sony with "Exmor R" CMOS sensors and BIONZ processors, offering a stereoscopic view of the world as well as a 3D mode that records scenes in 3D video for playback on any 3D-compatible TV. The binoculars can be connected via HDMI to an HDTV. There's also a USB connection for transferring video clips to a PC for storing, editing and sharing.

Additionally, the DEV-50V model includes a built-in GPS receiver that automatically geo-tags video clips and photos.

The new binoculars come with a high-capacity rechargeable battery pack (NP-FV70) that allows up to approximately three hours of 2D recording on a single charge. It also includes a battery charger/adaptor, A/V connecting cable and USB cable for PC connection, as well as a lens cover, finder cap, carrying case, neck strap and large eye cups.

The new DEV-50V digital recordable binoculars from Sony will be available in June for about $2000 at http://store.sony.com, Sony retail stores and other authorized retailers.
