Sony DEV-5 are a pair of digital binoculars capable of capturing 7.1 megapixel still images and recording 1080p Full HD 3D video, using dual LCD electronic viewfinders that offer a glass-free way to view your subject. Like traditional binoculars the viewfinder has rubber eye cups to keep out light and moisture and a durable plastic case construction, but the ability to record HD video using two Full HD sensors makes them the first binoculars in the world to do so. Features include 10x digital and 10x optical zoom combined for a total of 20x zoom, two Sony Exmor R CMOS sensors which are ideal for low light situations, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology, dual professional-quality wide angle G Lenses and GPS. Also included are a built-in 2 channel stereo mic with Dolby, mic and headphone stereo mini-jacks, SD card slot, two USB connections, HDMI port, Component and Composite video outputs. BRAVIA Sync lets you connect to other Sony HDMI products without the need for remote control, and the supplied battery can run up to 2 hours and 35 minutes while recording 2D video on a single charge. Release is expect in mid November 2011.
