DEV-5K
Digital Recording Binoculars
Observe and Document with one device
Equipped with digital binoculars capable of directly recording in full HD (1920 x 1080) video, you’re ready
to observe and document the world in high resolution
2D or immersive 3D with a maximum magnification of
20x (with digital zoom on). There’s also autofocus,
which is something that no conventional binoculars
are able to provide, while Optical SteadyShot™
(Active Mode) image stabilization technology ensures
crisp, stable images even at high magnification. A
new page in binocular history has been turned.
stabilization technology developed and refined
through the manufacture of Sony camera products
has been exhaustively applied in these innovative binoculars. The image remains crisp and stable even at
high magnifications that would make viewing difficult
with other binoculars.

Features
The DEV-5K provides a maximum magnification of
20x* when digital zoom is turned ON.** The DEV-5K
zooms seamlessly from 0.9x to maximum magnification, so it’s easy to frame the subject wide then zoom
in for detail. Both the zoom and autofocus functions
work simultaneously, so you can zoom in while autofocus keeps the image sharp for unprecedented subject tracking capability.
* When shooting 2D video.
** Image quality is reduced when recording 2D video
at magnifications higher than 10x when digital zoom
is ON.

GPS and HDMI for maximum utility
The DEV-5K Digital Recording Binoculars can record in
full HD video (1920 x 1080 video) for high resolution
and accurate reproduction of detail. Since binoculars
are intrinsically 2-channel devices, two top-quality G
lenses, two precision “Exmor R” CMOS image sensors,
and two high-speed BIONZ image processing engines
are employed. That’s one lens, sensor, and processing
engine for each eye. The left- and right-eye images
can be separately recorded and playback via the corresponding EVFs for immersive 3D viewing.* In addition to viewing in 3D, the Digital Recording Binoculars
let you record in 3D as well.**
* For 2D viewing the image from one channel is simultaneously played back via both EVFs.
** Up to a maximum magnification of 5.4x.
A built-in GPS function automatically records your location as you capture video or stills. The supplied PMB
(Picture Motion Browser) software can display the
captured video and stills on a map on your computer
screen, providing a detailed log of precisely where
each image was captured. By connecting the HDMI
terminal to an HD capable video monitor you can view
images that have been recorded by the binoculars in
full HD. If it’s a monitor that supports 3D, you can
view in 3D as well.

Ergonomic “stealth” design for a wide range of
applications
Here we have a perfect combination of rugged binocular durability and camera operability. They feature a
“stealth design” that avoids any unnecessary decoration. Visual indicators face the rear so that they can
be easily seen by the operator but not by the subject.
