Digital binoculars with HD video recording
The Sony® DEV-3 is the world’s first pair of digital recording binoculars that utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video. The DEV-3 puts a whole new experience to outdoor spectator activities such as birdwatching, sporting events and star gazing. For the first time consumers can capture amazing footage and save it for enjoyment on HD and 3D TVs.

1920x1080 50i/60i recording w/ 7MP still image capture
Capturing 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional quality. Capable of 50i/60i recording and playback via HDMI® and compatible HDTV providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories. At the same time, you can also capture up to 7.1MP still images so you never miss that decisive moment.

10x Seamless Zoom in 3D mode with AutoFocus
Enjoy high magnification of up to 10x optical zoom in 3D mode. With seamless zoom from 0.9x to maximum magnification users will find it easy to frame their subjects wide and zoom in for detail. With Autofocus the subject will remain sharp in view through zooming unlike the conventional binoculars. Unlike conventional binoculars, the DVE-3 also focuses on subjects as close as 1cm when recording in 2D, and as close as 80cm when recording in 3D.

Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization w/ Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video, whether you’re shooting in 3D or 2D. Now you can capture life smoothly as it happens while walking and zooming in from wide to telephoto and back.

Dual Back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensors for superb low-light video
Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, and now for binoculars, the "Exmor R" sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions. The DEV-3 employs two of these sensors to process what you record in 3D.

Dual Wide Angle G Lenses
Experience the pinnacle of Sony® lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 29.8mm(2D) and 34.4mm(3D) focal length in Video Mode offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.

Easily switch between 2D/3D with dedicated switch
A dedicated switch allows for easy switching from recording 2D to 3D, whether you’re recording or playing back video. In 3D mode, only 3D content will be displayed for playback, however when in 2D mode, all content will be displayed and played back in 2D. This allows you to record all your video in 3D and choose later whether or not you want to playback in 2D or 3D.

2-Channel stereo mic with Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator
Dolby® Digital 2 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can capture reactions and commentary of all your footage as it happens

Ergonomic and Functional Stealth Design
The DEV-3 binoculars have been designed for the end-user in mind, with a grip block for optimized comfortable, fatigue-free viewing and shooting, dual record buttons and a manual dial for focus control. As well, the DEV-5 is embodied in a stealth design, with little décor to minimize distraction of your subject.

Expanded recording/monitoring with mic/headphone jack
Features dedicated mic and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording options and convenient monitoring of audio with headphones (external microphones and headphones sold separately).

Long recording capability and Battery Display
Enjoy your surroundings with ease of mind knowing that, with your supplied NP-FV70 rechargeable battery pack, you can capture up to 2 hours and 35 minutes of 2D recording on a single charge. Remaining battery time is displayed in minutes on a GUI that can be viewed via the EVF, so you’ll always be able to keep track of how much recording time is left.
