The whole 3D thing may be dead (or dying) but there are still products out there which make good use of the technology if you’re in need. These Sony 3D Camcorder Binoculars are a good case in point. There’s no doubt that combining high power binoculars with a decent resolution camera should deliver great results, but up till now it seems no one has been able to do it properly.
This product looks like it might change things a little. The device combines a high definition camcorder which can also capture 7.1 megapixel still images, with high powered optics capable of 10x zoom. There’s also optical image stabilization to keep things nice and steady and an HDMI port for connection to a television so you and the family (or your bird watching friends?) can enjoy the footage together.
There are also external mic and headphones sockets, to ensure you can capture some top notch audio along with the visuals, and the unit supports up to 64GB SDHC memory cards, which definitely should be enough for most needs. You get around 3.5 hours of recording out of a single charge and the price for all this technology comes in at $1,400.
