소니가 디지털 쌍안경 DEV-3를 출시했습니다. 이 제품은 디지털캠코더와 쌍안경을 결합한 독특한 디지털제품입니다.
이 제품에는 엑스모어R 이미지센서를 탑재한 광학 렌즈 2개(f1.8~34 X10)가 탑재되어 있어 1080p 동영상, 710만화소 사진을 촬영할 수 있습니다.
주기능은 쌍안경이지만 디지털카메라+디지털캠코더 기능을 갖춘 것입니다. 10배 광학줌을 탑재했으며, 상위모델(1966달러)에는 GPS 기능과 10배 디지털줌 기능도 들어있습니다. 가격은 1399달러로 날아가는 새를 보면서 촬영하거나 운동경지 중 자신이 원하는 선수를 보면서 촬영하는 등 쓰임새로 쓸 수 있습니다. HDMI출력과 스테레오 스피커 출력이 가능합니다.
렌즈가 2개 있다는 점을 살려서 3D로 동영상과 사진을 찍을 수 있습니다. 이 제품이 디지털카메라를 대체하지는 못하겠지만, 이런 용도를 원했던 사람에게는 매력적인 제품이 될 것으로 예상됩니다. 국내 출시는 미정입니다.
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 19, 2011 – Life's "can't miss" moments are now easier to observe and capture with the world's first digital binoculars to record in AVCHD™ 2.0 format, from Sony. The new models, DEV-3 and DEV-5, are ideal for nature/bird watching, they can record Full HD video with stereo sound at the touch of a button, and even add a 3D mode that records scenes as thrilling stereoscopic video footage for playback on most 3D HDTVs.
"Now consumers can watch birds, wildlife, sports action and more in steady, sharply-focused close-up views, while capturing their subjects in crisp Full HD," said Andy Bubala, director of the camcorder business at Sony Electronics. "These new models add entirely new levels of flexibility and convenience to viewing, recording and enjoying your favorite images and scenes."
Users can select the variable zoom on both models to scan a wide area at low magnification before zooming in seamlessly to pinpoint a subject, such as birds in a field. Turning on the digital zoom at magnification settings over 10x boosts the DEV-5 model's total magnification range from 0.9x up to 20x digital (image quality is reduced when digital zoom is on and recording 2D video at magnifications higher than 10x), rivalling many high-powered conventional binoculars. The DEV-3 model pulls wildlife, sporting subjects and architectural details closer with a maximum magnification of 10x optical. In 3D mode, the binoculars' maximum magnification is 5.4x optical.
Unlike traditional binoculars, electronic autofocus keeps moving subjects sharply in focus at all times. A comfortably positioned dial allows fingertip adjustment of manual focus – ideal for focusing selectively on a subject, rather than overhanging branches or other obstructions in the field of view.
Electronic autofocus allows both binoculars to focus cleanly on subjects less than half an inch away when recording in 2D (minimum of 32 inches when recording in 3D).
Separate images for left and right eyes are captured by a matched pair of precision G Lens optics by Sony with "Exmor R" CMOS sensors and powerful BIONZ® processors. Independent electronic viewfinders provide clear, detailed images for left and right eyes, offering a stereoscopic viewing experience that's comfortable, natural and highly immersive.
The DEV-3 and DEV-5 digital binoculars feature Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization (Active mode), the optical stabilization system that's found on Sony Handycam® camcorders and Cyber-shot® cameras. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization helps keep images clear and stable, even when viewing at high magnifications. The binoculars can be connected via HDMI® to a Sony BRAVIA® HDTV or any HD television with HDMI input for viewing images (cable sold separately). 3D videos can be enjoyed on virtually any 3D-compatible TV, including Sony BRAVIA® models. There's also a USB connection for transferring video clips to a PC for storing, editing and sharing.
The binoculars feature a "stealth" design that eliminates distracting buttons or external details that could reveal a user's position to wildlife.
Both binoculars feature an ergonomic grip area that's coated with an elastomer material for sure handling and stable operation. Top-mounted controls allow easy operation with gloved fingers, while dual buttons are provided to start recording instantly with either hand.
The DEV-5 model includes an on-board GPS receiver that automatically geo-tags video clips and photos. Tagged images can be viewed after shooting in online maps (requires compatible software).
Both binocular models come with a high-capacity rechargeable battery pack (NP-FV70) that allows up to approximately three hours of 2D recording on a single charge. Remaining battery time (minutes) is displayed in the electronic viewfinder.
The DEV-3 and DEV-5 models also include a battery charger/adaptor, A/V connecting cable and USB cable for PC connection. In addition, the DEV-5 binoculars are supplied with lens cover, finder cap, large eye cups, a carrying case and neck strap.
The new DEV-3 and DEV-5 digital recordable binoculars from Sony will be available in November 2011 for about $1400 and $2000, respectively, at http://store.sony.com, Sony retail stores and other authorized retailers nationwide. For images and information, please visit www.sony.com/news.
