A combination we have all been waiting for.

Pros A great second generation camera/binocular combo that meets my expectations.
Cons Could use stabilization for camera alone or both bino/camera. Also, better battery holder.
Recommended it? Yes

The optics of the binoculars are superb (what else would you expect from Meade?). The overall feel of the binoculars is heavy, but not too heavy. In other words, it is built like you would want your car built--like a tank. This is a very easy devise to hold and look through. But what about taking... Read full review »

Pros The binoculars and camera match or exceed any competitive product.
Cons Battery cap is flawed and will break.
Recommended it? No

Binocular quality is excellent. Camera resolution is excellent. Camera was not intuitive and instruction manual was weak. Batteries are held in place with a cheap plastic part that is pressed in on both sides to remove batteries. When I first saw the part I though it looked weak and would break... Read full review »

Pros It looks interesting. Acceptable optics.
Cons Cheap Quality, Impossible to Hold Steady.
Recommended it? No

The battery door pops off and on, and the LCD screen is flimsy.The whole thing is entirely too bulky and heavy. The distance between the lenses is... Read full review »

It does work but . . . .

Pros True 2 MP sensor. Capable of some good shots. Excellent PC I/O
Cons Poor light handling. Very sensitive to shake. Not stable.
Recommended it? Yes

This second generation integrated binocular digital camera does make some firsts: It is a true 2 megapixel camera which can interpolate up to 3 megapixels. Now there's enough resolution to see something and have enough pixels to work with in a photo editor. If you are running XP on your PC, it is a... Read full review »
