Sony recently launched the worlds first digital video binocular models Dev-3 and Dev-5 that can record full HD video 1080p with Stereo sound, can convert it into 3D with just a touch of a button, has 7.1 megapixel camera to capture still images of 3072 x 2304 pixels in JPEG format and can make you feel you’re in Star Wars.
It will store the recorded data on a memory stick or SDXC flash card. Its video recording capabilities are 1080p @ 60 frames per second (fps) for a 2D video and 1080i @ 60 fps for 3D video. (i in 1080i stands for interlaced.)
Another interesting part is, viewing 3D content while shooting or playing it back doesn’t need glasses, because the stereo-graphic effect is created by sending separate channels for the left and right eyes through the binocular eyepieces. Cool, eh?
I am sure you wished you were a wildlife watcher and if not, this can make you like one.
Technology seems to have a very less generation life-time. We wished something yesterday and it is real today. Too much!
