Excerpt: Hard to understand owners manual. Allot of facts missing. Had to call Customer Service and he talked me through entire set-up and use. He actually had same model in his hands talking me through it all. I also took notes.
Excerpt: A binocular camera sounds like a great idea, but this model is neither a good camera nor a good pair of binoculars. Look for something else! The Bushnell website says this has 8MB of built in memory, which is enough to take only a handfull of pictures.
Cons: Bulky compared to camera, Dark colorless pictures, Narrow field of view, Poor manual, Poor product support, Poor resolution, Problematic downloading, Tiny screen
Excerpt: view & take pictures of ducks birds and the beauties that walk around the lake. i get a much better view of what i enjoy watching. i have a hard time holding it still enough to see and take good pictures.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: I don't know of any other device like this on the market, but if you're looking for something to take long-range photos, save your lunch money for a while, or take out a second mortgage on your house, and buy a nice digital camera and a high-powered zoom lens.
Pros: Pretty nice optics for the price. The view is sharp and clear, without much color separation. The the zoom (15-45x) is good and brings things in close so you can get a very good look at your subject. Comes with a decent (but not great) table-top tripod, shutter release cable, and USB cable. Easy ...
Cons: The 5mp digital camera is pretty pitiful. It can't handle extremes very well, the color is off, and the video is grainy, noisy and choppy. I think the cheap camera in my cell phone might be better than this one. The camera only uses one zoom setting (22x). The plastic housing seems pretty fragile...
Excerpt: The camera does not even line up with the binocular optics, so what you are looking at is not in the picture if you snap the shutter. The pictures are useless for all practical purposes even on High Resolution. I would not recommend this to my enemy. Someone please tell me that it is just my camera.
Summary: its a budget digital spotting scope can be fun to use as long as you don't expect too much. The image quality is poor. When you focus using the scope and try to take a picture or video you need to refocus again after shifting from eyepiece to camera which is totally unpractical.
