is there such monster? main binocular lens to take pictures

Postby Admin on Wed Oct 06, 2004 2:15 pm

im looking for a binocular with a built in digital camera that uses the main binocular lens not those cheap digital camera in the middle with a good size memorie 120mb or more and something in a 10x50 is there such thing today? or any near feature. im not sure about those bushnell "using the main lens" but i dont like the small non replaceble memories i dont expect them to be cheap of course but a decent company like bushnell could make them afordable.powerfull well made binculars are fairly cheap this days and you really dont need a $1.000. german steiner what so hard about mating a binocular with at 2 megapix to 3 and with such lens you dont need any digital expansion and a LCD view finder is not needed knowing that the camera took exactly what i saw thru the main lens and some one who uses binoculars a lot can keep the blurr to a minimum or would that be the main problem in something like a 10x50 "lens can be stable using new tech allready used in binoculars . im all ears from here on. even a 20x50 mounted on a tripod would be great with 5 to 7 second delay shutter all i see this days are adaptors for digital cameras to spoting scopes or telescope "but not practical in the field".

Dear Daniel

Thanks for your interest in our products!
It would almost impossible to make an affordable digital binocular to take pictures through both lenses of a binocular because of the collimation problems and practicality, and therefore spotting scopes are the way to go if you want to take pictures through the main lens, but you do have a few options. One option would be to purchase our one of our digital spotting scopes

with a CCD sensor and a TV out functionality.
Another option would be to get a high quality spotting scope and use it with a digital camera as a telephoto lens.
There is a number of digiscoping adapters available

for Bushnell, Nikon, B&L, Swarovski scopes.
Your budget for the camera and the spotting scope is the only limit.
The 2MP digital binoculars are not that bad for the money you pay and they are very portable, come with SD memory slot that will take up to !GB SD cards. They will take fine pictures to put on your web page or even print on 4"x6" paper. They are good enough to capture a bird in your backyard or take a photo of a kid playing football. Naxos & Celestron digital binoculars you mount on a tripod without any problems.

If you need something better, you would have to spend more money and get a camera and spotting scope separately to go digitscoping.
