camera binoculars - help!!

Postby Jen M on Thu Dec 16, 2004 7:58 pm

Hi,
I am wanting to purchase a digital camera binocular combo as a gift for a semi-professional photographer. I am having a hard time choosing between products however. I want a durable pair of binoculars that will produce the best photos possible. I have done a lot of online research and have heard people complain about the Meade Captureview, because apparently the LCD is flimsy and the battery cover comes off, even though it has the widest lense that I have found at 42 mm.
As a result, I have been looking at the Konus Digivue (2094)which has the green lense coating, the Bushnell imageview (11-0832) and the Celestron Vistapix 72212.
Can you please give me some advise on which product (any of the above or any other) are best suited to my gift giving needs.
Thanks,
-Jen.

Hi Jen

I'd go with either the Celestron Vistapix or the Bushnell. The Vistapix has recieved some great reviews Both are in short supply, so please check before ordering.
