1. Introduction to Digital Binoculars

A digital binocular is basically a small digital point and shoot camera placed on top of a binocular. Digital binoculars, therefore, offer the convenience of a digital camera and a binocular all in one instrument. In a digital binocular, the camera is set at the same magnification of the binocular, usually 8x. As a result, what you see in the camera is roughly what you'll get in a picture with the camera. Keep in mind that the picture will never be exactly the same as what you see in the binocular, since your eyes see the world differently than a camera does, but it will be close enough so that you can edit the photo as needed with the photo software (included with all digital binoculars).
