digital binoculars - what u see is what u photo
Thank you for your interest in www.OpticsPlanet.com.
Yes, digital binoculars allow you to take a picture of the image you see in the binocular. Most of the time that will be 8x or 10x, depending on the model of the digital bino you choose.
I’m a birder myself and have been also thinking of a digital binocular, probably for the same reasons as you - it would be nice to have a picture of a good bird now and then. For real close-ups, I use my spotting scope (still the best way to go for serious bird photos), but it seems that I always spot that rare bird when the spotting scope is at home! In the field, I carry my regular binos for all my birding, but will soon add a compact digital bino in my pack to confirm a good sighting. For this use, any of the compact digital binos we carry here at OpticsPlanet.com will work.
If you plan to use your digital binocular as your only instrument, I would advise something large enough to deliver good optical performance for your birding. Any of the 8x30 or 8x32 digital binos are a good choice, but the new Bushnell Instant Replay 8x32 LCD, http://www.opticsplanet.com/businrepdigb.html, has so many neat photo features it is hard to pass up. The really best choice, though, in a do it all instrument is the Meade 8x42 CaptureView http://www.opticsplanet.com/mead-captur ... b1005.html.
If you have any questions on birding or optics, please let me know.
