Sony, $1999 ★★★★ These binoc­u­lars are per­fect for bird­watch­ers, sport fans and con­cert-go­ers. In the DEV-5, Sony de­liv­ers a de­vice that can shoot and record HD video with up to 20x as­sisted mag­ni­fi­ca­tion — not some­thing you’d ex­pect from a pair of binoc­u­lars. Sony de­scribes the binoc­u­lars’ cas­ing as a non­re­flec­tive elas­tomer ma­te­rial, and the er­gonomic grip means the 1.2kg unit can be held in a sta­ble po­si­tion for a long pe­riod. They can record HD or even 3D video, as well as 7.1-megapixel still images, to an SD mem­ory card. A dig­i­tal zoom keeps mov­ing tar­gets in fo­cus.
