Sony DEV-50 Features

  • Up to 25x Magnification: Simple zoom lever operation allows smooth zooming from 0.8x to a maximum of 25x magnification. Plus, subject location and framing is easier than with conventional binoculars
  • Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: The DEV-50 are engineered with Active image stabilization technology to minimize blur when zoomed in on a subject from far away
  • By Pixel Super Resolution: By Pixel Super Resolution technology analyzes and processes all pixels and then combines the resulting data with a database that contains hundreds of variations to achieve optimum processing for each individual pixel. This results in improved still image resolution
  • Memory Stick Duo & SD Card Support: The following memory card types are supported: Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, Memory Stick XC-HG Duo and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards
  • Double Full HD & 3D Movie Recording: The DEV-50 allows you to record the scene or subject you're viewing in Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, while it is being observed via the binoculars
  • XGA OLED Tru-Finder Viewfinder: The DEV-50 features an XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder that delivers outstanding resolution and high contrast. Plus, the OLED devices offer XGA resolution with approx. 2.36 million dots so even the smallest details are clearly defined
  • Simultaneous Zoom & Autofocus: Simultaneous zoom and autofocus capability is an important advantage. With the Digital Recording Binoculars autofocus rapidly follows zoom operation
  • Dust & Moisture Resistant: The DEV-50 is 30% smaller and lighter Sony's first generation digital recording binoculars making them easier to carry on every trip. They are also dust and moisture resistant so you can use them without having to worry about rain, spray or dust
  • Hyper Gain: With conventional binoculars, low light levels can make it difficult to locate and recognize the subject. Hyper Gain alleviates the problem by electronically increasing brightness in the viewfinder so the subject can be quickly located and framed even in dim light conditions
  • HDMI Connectivity: By connecting the HDMI terminal to a Sony BRAVIA or similar large-screen TV, images that have been recorded by the binoculars can be viewed in Full HD. If it's a TV that supports 3D, 3D viewing can be enjoyed as well
