sony-dev-5.jpgSony have announced the launch of the world’s first pairs of digital binoculars to feature HD video recording. Two models will be available, the DEV-5 and the less expensive DEV-3.

Tech heavy binoculars for bird watchers and peeping Toms alike, the binoculars can record full 1080p video with stereo sound, and even features a 3D recording mode.

G Lens optics with Exmor R CMOS is the sensor of choice, with a 10x Optical Zoom on both models and 10x digital zoom on the DEV-5. 7MP still photos can be captured too.

HDMI-out to a big screen TV is supported, as well as an optional 5-inch LCD screen add-on. 3 hours of 2D recording will be possible from a single battery charge.

Available from November, the DEV-5 will set you back £2,300.

The cheaper DEV-3 ditches features like GPS, geo-tagging and the 10x digital zoom for a more affordable price of £1,700.

As soon as we saw them though, all we could think of was Luke Skywalker’s sci-fi binoculars from the original Star Wars film. Click here to see what we mean.
