  • Excerpt: Precision glass isn’t cheap. Photographers and Apple Store architects have known that for years, as have those in the market for a quality pair of binoculars. In that context, Sony’s digital recording binoculars ($1400+) offer an interesting value proposition and represent an entirely new category of devices — at least for those whose business card doesn’t say assassin.

Sony DEV-5 Digital Recording Binoculars Review

Digital Photography School
27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: I could shoot only video but the frames I took looked OK — nothing brilliant, sharpness adequate but perhaps a little subject to flare (the test shots were made in backlight).
  • Pros: you get binocs plus a digi camera.

Expert Review

1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Multiple tech miracles combine in Sony’s amazing digital recording binoculars, even though they fall rather into the basket of a solution looking for a problem. When you look through the eyepieces you see two tiny screens instead of optical tubes, and (like real binoculars) these need to be aligned and focused for each user, so when you hand them around to share (because everyone will want a go), there can be a fair bit of realigning required.

Sony DEV-5: Cool men riktigt smal

19 June 2012

  • Pros: Cool kombo, Lättanvänd, Bra bildkvalitet
  • Cons: Formatet, Dyr, Sämre skärpa i snabba rörelser

Test Sony DEV-5 – dalekohled, fotoaparát, videokamera

6 April 2012
  • Summary: V tomto článku se podíváme na poměrně neobvyklý kus techniky. Dalekohled Sony DEV-5, se kterým můžete pozorovanou scénu také fotografovat a natáčet ve FullHD rozlišení. Co víc, přístroj zvládá i 3D video a obsahuje GPS modul, třešničkou na dortu je stabilizace obrazu. Jak to funguje v praxi se dočtete v testu.

Sony DEV-5 : jumelles numériques en 3D

Ere Numérique
1 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Les jumelles numériques existent déjà mais la visée optique demeure plus qualitative. Sony franchit désormais un pas qui leur donne une réelle légitimité. Ainsi, elles affichent la nature en 3D et se proposent de la filmer en relief Full-HD. Au passage, l’affichage sur écran LCD fait aussi un bond qualitatif en avant. Voici donc le must have de votre prochain safari.
  • Pros: Très bonnes jumelles, Qualité d’image en 2D et en 3D, Bonne ergonomie
