Gadget: Nexoptic Doubletake binoculars


Despite their usefulness, binoculars have largely gone out of fashion on holidays, with most tourists choosing to carry around a phone as opposed to a pair of large, cumbersome field glasses.

However, they may be coming back in vogue soon, with Nexoptic Technology coming out with an updated version of its Doubletake binoculars at Consumer Electronic­s

Show 2020.

The 3D-printed binoculars offer up to 10x digital zoom via their wide field lens, zooming almost a kilometre and a half, and can take photos in 12 megapixels and shoot video in 4k, which is stored on an SD card or in the cloud, meaning you can capture those amazing wildlife spotting moments. For those not keen on choosing between phone or binoculars, Doubletake can also share on social media when connected via Nexoptic’s applicatio­n.

Doubletake is both shock and water resistant, and features GPS tracking, weather details and image caching. With a battery which is capable of up to three hours of continuous use, the binoculars are also equipped for low light, with a sturdy f-number of 2.5.

Doubletake is planned for release in the first quarter of 2020.
