. The advantage to a digibino, is that you have an actual binocular, so you can view a live image, and take a picture. When using a video camera, you are looking at a projected image on a screen like a TV. You will not see as much detail on the screen. The binoculars are also more compact, easy to carry around, and are not quite as fragile. We have many digibinos available here, http://www.opticsplanet.com/digital-cam ... ulars.html
