We first saw this type of binocular/camera technology from Bushnell, but until now we haven’t seen a set of binoculars that have a 5 megapixel photo quality.
The Pro Viewer BinoCam has 8x mechanical zoom and can take photos and AVI video and show them on a 1.5 inch LCD screen as well as download them to your PC via a USB 1.1 interface. The camera has auto exposure and saves the pictures and video to an external SD card (no internal memory). Photos can be taken at two resolution settings, high at 1600 x 1200 or Low at 640 x 480.
The camera-binocular combo runs on 4 AAA batteries, weighs 1.3 pounds and measures about 6 inches long. The BinoCam retails for around $250 USD. Check out the cheesy infomercial describing the binocular camera:
