Sony Introduces New Smaller and Lighter Digital Recording Binoculars
Rain and dust-resistant, the new DEV-50V is perfect for all-weather sports,
wildlife and travel

Now 30% smaller and lighter than previous model with new weather-resistant design
• Zoom in smoothly from 0.8x magnification wide-angle view to powerful 25x magnification close-ups
• See your subject clearly with bright, high contrast OLED viewfinder
• Keep views blur-free with Optical SteadyShot Active Mode
• Autofocus tracks your subject crisply and clearly, even when zooming
• Touch a button and record video clips in detail-packed Full HD, or even in 3D
• Capture the moment with crisp 20.4 megapixel digital photos

AUCKLAND, 30 April 2013 – Carry less and capture more on your next outdoor expedition with the new DEV-50V digital recording binoculars from Sony. Besides sensational close-up views of birds and animals in the wild, that stunning aerial display or a distant mountain peak, crisp and crystal-sharp photos as well as stunning HD video footage can be taken at the touch of a button with the binoculars.

Splash- and dust-resistant, the new DEV-50V digital recording binoculars is 30% lighter and more compact than previous models, making them more convenient to be packed and carried along for those adventures to rain-soaked mountains or leisurely trips to sandy beaches.


A busy day in the field normally means packing your spotting scope, binoculars and digital camera with bulky telephoto lens. But with the DEV-50V you can observe wildlife up close, take impressive photos and shoot smooth, steady video – all without carrying extra gear. Sweep your surroundings at low power to locate your subject. The stunning new XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder delivers improved resolution and contrast for noticeably clearer images. Even when you’re zoomed right in, Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode image stabilisation keeps things stable and blur-free to ensure you are looking at the right subject.

Unlike ordinary binoculars, there’s no need to keep focusing manually as your scene changes. Speedy, precise autofocus makes sure everything stays pin-sharp – even while zooming in, panning out or when your subject’s moving rapidly.

A common struggle faced when using ordinary binoculars is the lack of vision clarity and focus in dim lighting. With the DEV-50V, that will no longer be an issue with the brightness of the electronic viewfinder being boosted by Hyper gain function in low light, helping you see that shy owl more clearly as dusk falls. Hyper gain works by electronically increasing brightness in the viewfinder so the subject can be quickly located and framed in dim lighting conditions.


There’s nothing worse than making a fantastic discovery only to have to put away the binoculars, fumble for the camera and find that the moment’s gone. The DEV-50V makes it so much easier by just the simple click of the shutter button to capture a 20.4 megapixel still photo. Or opt instead for the record button to start vibrant video footage in Full HD. And since there are two completely separate image sensors and processors in each side of the binoculars, HD 3D videography is now easily achieved for later viewing on a 3D television.

When you’re back home, hook up the binoculars to your TV and enjoy the day’s recorded highlights in sparking HD clarity. Alternatively, slot the memory card into your PC or digital photo frame and relive the memories.

The new DEV-50V digital recording binoculars by Sony will be available in New Zealand from June 2013 in all Sony stores and selected outlets.
