Thanks for your interest in our digitla binocular camera products!
The picture quality is about the same for both cameras. I would say it is superb picture quality for the money considering built-in LCD screens
, CCD sensors
, binocular optics
, SD/MMC slot
features, great support from Meade and Celestron, and all below $200 price mark! You should not expect the picture quality of these digital binocular cameras to be equal to a professional $4,000 photo setup with a Canon, Nikon, or Pentax Digital SLR camera
with Swarovski HD glass spotting scope
as a telephoto lens, but the picture quality of either Celestron or Meade digital binoculars
will good enough to print on paper, view on your computer or share on the web. It is truly unbelievable what these modern digital binoculars camera pack for the price we charge. Celestron Vista Pix digital cameras
are slighter smaller and have a tripod socket in their binocular body.
Meade 8x42 LCD Capture View digital binoculars camera
is its second generation and a more mature model. It also has a larger 42mm binocular objective lenses for brighter binocular image. Both cameras have the highest resolution currently available, and the quality of optics is the same.
I am not sure how well they will hold up in extreme cold weather, I'd say they will be as reliable as any other consumer digital camera. If you want a more rugged digital binocular camera, I would suggest to go for a
VB1009 Meade CaptureView 8x30 Water Resistant Binoculars Digital Camera 3MP

We have sold thousands of digital camera binoculars and never had any problems with a flip-up LCD screen, but I would think that the
new Meade water proof digitlal binoculars cameras
with the LCD screen on its body will hold up better in the extreme conditions, and as far as the camera, they are absolutely identical to the 8x42mm Meade CamptureView digital binocular
, and VERY similar if not the same in picture quality to the 2/3 megapixel Celestron VistaPix 8x32mm digital cameras.
All three digital binocular cameras
come with a carry case, support additional Secure Digital (SD) memory cards, and a great buy for the money. All of them are in stock, ship within 24 hours, UPS Ground is free, and there is no tax outside of IL.
I hope it helps somewhat in your decision.
