Eoncore 2" LCD Display Digital Camera Binoculars 12x32 5MP Video Photo Recorder Digital Camera Telescope For Watching Bird, Football Game, Concert + Free 4GB TF Card Review
Editor Rating: 4.7/5
Binoculars and digital camera all in one at an affordable price with an anti-shake feature.
For those who own a digital camera, you know how hard it is sometimes to take a photo in a moving vehicle or when you yourself couldn't keep your hand steady. The anti-shake feature allows capturing images at slow shutter speeds without causing blurring and allowing light to pass to get brighter, clearer images. Because it could capture more light, it is an ideal device to use in low-light conditions.
Unlike most digital cameras, this device has a higher magnification of 12x and a viewing range of 200 feet which makes this ideal for distance viewing.
The digital camera comes with a flip down LCD screen making it handier and easy to store. Also, the flip down feature allows you to protect the screen from scratches. But it's major function is to allow you to playback, review, and manage the pictures and videos that you've taken while you are looking through the binocular. Instead of carrying two devices, you have both the binocular and camera in one device.
To store the multimedia files temporarily, the device comes with a 4GB TF card which is more than enough to store all your files. When it reaches its full capacity, you can transfer the files to a computer with a USB cable or card reader.
It also uses rechargeable battery so you can save money, time, and effort to go to a store to buy new batteries. You can rarely find inexpensive binoculars with rechargeable batteries.
Overall, this device is a great tool to use for outdoor activities such as observing wildlife and nature, watching a concert, surveillance and more.
It is more convenient and has more capabilities compared with a regular binocular or digital camera.

When choosing a digital binocular, it is important to look at the characteristics of the following parts:
The binocular - This part plays a major role in letting you see better than with just your naked eye. It allows you to see further, closer, and clearer.
The digital camera - The digital camera allows you to capture an image or record a video from what you see through the binocular.
Storage - Since you'll be capturing images and recording videos, it is important to take a look at the storage capacity of the device where your images or videos will be stored temporarily before you transfer them to a computer or any other device as permanent storage or for editing purposes. How many bytes of images and videos it can store.

The binocular has a viewing range of up to 200 yards which makes it perfect for bird watching, concerts, surveillance jobs, hunting, and more. This is because the device uses a 32mm objective lens allowing it to absorb light easily even in low-light conditions giving the viewer a brighter picture. Also, you can magnify it 12 times which is more than sufficient for most outdoor activities such as the ones I mentioned above. It is also very easy to use as it only uses a single central focusing knob which makes focusing less complicated especially for newbies.
To start with, image sensors are very important especially when it comes to digital cameras. Image sensors capture light and convert it into an image that you see on an LCD monitor. Basically, it is the electronic equivalent of film. For a compact, portable device like a digital binocular, a 1/2.7-inch CMOS image sensor is more than sufficient. CMOS unlike CCD sensor captures more light and produces better quality images.
Capturing blurry images is common especially when you are not a professional photographer or it can be quite hard to focus when you are on the move. This device has an anti-shake feature that helps ease this problem and allows you to capture more focused images at slow shutter speeds absorbing more light and thus very ideal for shooting in low light conditions. The device is capable on a single shoot, 2s, 5s, and 10s timing.
It comes with a 4GB TF card storage so you don't need to buy a memory card separately to store your images and videos. When the device arrives, you can start looking through the binoculars, capture images, and record videos.
It also has a built-in LCD screen with buttons near it so you can view the images and videos you took real-time. This screen can be flipped down so that it is easy to store and also serves as a way to protect the screen from being exposed to damages or scratches.
The device is made of a durable material called ABS (thermoplastic polymer material) that has good resistance to heat and chemicals and glossy sleek look.
The device has the smallest size on our list. It is easy to hold, very portable, with easy to reach controls and can also be mounted on a tripod.
It also uses rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries and comes with a 100 cm micro USB charging cable.
