The 8x32mm Point 'n View 8 MP Camera Binocular from Barska seamlessly supports a symbiotic relationship between an 8x32 binocular and an 8 megapixel digital camera. View an exciting, awe-inspiring visual in the binocular and save it for posterity with a still shot or video via the integrated camera. Stills and videos can be played back on the flip-up 1.5" LCD color display located on top of the binocular. While the camera itself has no on-board memory, up to 16 gigabytes of images and video can be saved to a user-supplied SD memory card. While the binocular has a normative 8x magnification, the camera has a 1-4x zoom magnification. A CMOS color image sensor optimized at 8 megapixels delivers a maximum image size of 3264 x 2448. With a quick change of a simple button setting, still shots can morph into AVI videos at 640x480 pixels. The time limit of video depends on the capacity of the SD storage card. This camera binocular combination has a USB 1.1 port compatible with a PC to store the data and access the media files.
The 8x32 binocular features a roof prism design with fold-up eyecups allowing comfortable magnified observation for long periods of time without eye-strain whether an eye/sunglass wearer or not. The multicoated lenses enhance the image quality for a more vivid and sharp viewing experience. It has a minimum close focus distance of 16.4 feet or five meters, out until as far as you can see, and can be mounted on a tripod with an optional 1/4"-20 adapter. The Point 'n View is a symbiosis of a roof prism binocular with a digital camera that is equally at home on a nature outing, sporting event, or vacation.
