Digital Binocular Cameras- Experience?

Wed Jun 02, 2004 9:12 am

Hi,


my brother was recently best man at our wedding. And he wants a digital binocular camera.

does anyone have experience with these? He and I both know the images will not be great but we wants to bring them to sports events.


Your advice and knowledge is appreciated.

PS I tried to talk him out of it, but he wants them.

Practical? Not as a digital camera. Perhaps as a novelty item...

I hope he's buying them, not you!  Big grin

With most DigiCam Binoculars having a resolution of 0.3 megapixels, I think it's self explanatory as to what kind of results can be expected. But, here, you can find a nice selection of them. I'd take a closer look at the Bushnells with the 2.1MPs, especially the one with the LCD screen (that, ironically enough, there's no picture of).

'Luck

So your bro was both your husband (or wife however you want to put it) and your best man?! :p

So Bushnell is a relatively reputable name in binoculars, isn't it?
