  • Sony Updates Binoculars for 3D Audiences

    The DEV-3 and DEV-5 include HD recording, 2D and 3Di capture and playback, and more.

    Sony's new 3d binoculars

    There haven’t been too many thrilling innovations in the world of binoculars. Sony is giving the outdoor accessory a high-tech twist, adding 2D and 3D recording to the DEV-3 and DEV-5.

    According to Sony, these are the world’s first digital binoculars to record in the AVCHD 2.0 format. Both models use G Lens optics by Sony with Exmor R CMOS sensors and BIONZ processors to capture in full HD, with stereo sound to boot. There’s also a 3D mode, to make your video capture just a teeny bit more lifelike—and compatible with your 3D TV.

    Each one has options for electronic and manual autofocus. The DEV-3 can do magnification of 10x optical (5.4x in 3D mode), while the DEV-5’s magnification range can go from 0.9x up to 20x digital.
