Pros binoculars are great
Cons digital camera should be non-existant
Recommended it? Yes

These binoculars are very compact, light weight, and easy to focus. As for the camera, very disappointing. The pictures it takes are very poor.

The battery life is awful and if the battery goes so do your pictures. The battery compartment actually had a malfunction and camera would turn off sporadically and dump the pictures.

This is the 8x22 base model binocular with integrated digital camera. They feel like regular binoculars (9.3 ounces and 4.5''x3.5''x2.2'')and for the most part they look like regular binoculars too. The digital camera and lense are built into the mid section with two simple buttons (one takes the... Read full review »
