Choosing The Best Digital Binoculars for Avid Explorers

By Dzhingarov

Fancy high-spec digital binoculars are no longer solely the purview of the nameless assassin in the Hitman line of games. Whilst Special Forces like the US Navy SEALS may also use a set of digital binoculars within their gear, it is now possible for the average person to own the same type of binoculars for personal use.

The ATN BinoX-HD 4-16X is a state-of-the-art pair of binoculars that has many features which better what a traditional pair of binoculars or a digital camera can do separately.

Faster Digital Processing

The BinoX-HD 4-16X has high-definition optics which function during the day and under night conditions using a powerful Obsidian Core that cycles a billion times every second.

The digital binocular display uses visual overlays to show the zoom factor, battery level, photographic/video mode, and directional information.

Record Video in 1080p

Video is recorded in Full 1080p and stored on a micro SD card. Alternatively, transfer video files to another computing device using the micro USB port.

Capture recorded video either day or night. Colors are vivid in the daytime and at night the image adopts a green hue similar to a pair of night vision goggles. This allows the avid bird watcher and wildlife observer to see animal life from a safe distance without creating a disturbance that would scare away the animals.

Optical Zoom

An optical zoom function is built into the binoculars to give a smoother experience compared to an old-fashioned pair of binoculars which has to be manually adjusted. The smooth zoom effect is available from 4X to 16X zoom factor which ensures that distant scenery, wildlife or people are viewable more easily from a greater distance.

View Recorded Content on a Big Screen TV

The mini HDMI port allows for the easy transfer of digital media. View photos and videos on a larger display to enjoy the complete 1080p digital experience.

Bird Watching With Improved Clarity

Whether your bird watching binoculars with camera are positioned perfectly for bird watching locally, or you are planning to use the digital binoculars on an African Safari, the image clarity with crisp colors and image stabilization from the 3D gyroscope sensor, is second to none.

Digital Metrics to Help Explorers

Monitor the elevation along a trek and keep an eye on the e-Compass that uses a 3-dimensional magnetometer sensor to track your movement. GPS coordinates are used to geo-tag images so explorers know when and where they took different shots.

For people who like to go faster than walking on foot, a speedometer can also track their speed when mountain biking, sailing, horseback riding, and other active pursuits where speed is a factor.

Wi-Fi Supported

The BinoX-HD also includes Wi-Fi support for connectivity to a smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Transfer or access photos and videos without needing to using a wired USB connection. You can even use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder, and remove the bad shots before transferring the files to a computer for further editing.

It is a pain to carry a pair of binoculars, a digital camera, a smartphone, and all the other essentials when going on a trek, a safari and or exploring the countryside. Cut down on the heavy load by getting the best of both worlds by carrying a pair of digital binoculars.
