What Are Binoculars?

Allowing you to see stunning views and little nature's treasures from the distance, binoculars are an essential traveler's gear. However, you can't share that beauty with anyone else if the image is only captured in your memory. On the other hand, binoculars with a built-in camera enable you to take pictures and videos of what you see through the eyepieces, and what's important, just the moment you see it. Spotting a bird with a camera may be not so easy; even if you use the binoculars it will take some time to grab a camera when you've spotted your picture's subject, the bird may fly away, the key moment of the game may be missed. If you have camera binoculars, you won't waste that moment. Although your shot pictures and videos may be not as immaculate as those taken with an expensive professional camera, they will help to capture memorable moments and share them with your family and friends. If you have made up your mind to buy this wonderful two-in-one device, please look through this best binoculars with camera review and make your choice.

We also recommend you to get an SD card to expand your chosen device memory.

What Features to Compare

Binocular magnification and lens diameter

Selecting binoculars with camera, you should consider the eyepieces magnification and objective lens diameter. The larger the first parameter is,  the farther objects you will be able to see. Most models have 10 x or 12-x magnification, allowing you to get a clear view and focus your eyepieces very quickly - just what you need in binoculars with camera for birding, hunting, or watching sports competitions and concerts. These parameters also affect the exit pupil diameter; a wide exit pupil will deliver more light to your eye, however, it should not be larger than your pupil size, so 2 to 3 mm is just perfect for daytime observations. A high-quality binocular with an ergonomic focus wheel will help you spot the subject quickly and easily.

Built-in camera

Camera binoculars are portable devices, so the built-in cameras should be very compact and lightweight as well. Because of this, most of them have an image sensor of about 1.3 MP, which is quite enough to get high definition pictures and is not bad at all if you are going to view these images on screen or share them via social networks. On the other hand, if you are going to print your photos, it is advisable to choose a camera with more pixels or at least choose the highest resolution available.

If you want to look through your captured photos and videos and easily navigate the menu, it is advisable to get a unit with a foldable LCD screen. Models with monochrome displays do not allow viewing the pictures. However, they are efficient and easy to operate, besides, they are usually more portable and in most cases more affordable. Most units have minimum buttons and preset shooting modes for taking pictures hassle-free.

One more thing to keep in mind is your chosen camera binoculars internal memory capacity. If there is no internal memory, no pictures can be taken until you insert a memory card into its slot. Please, check if a memory card comes with the box; if it doesn't, do not forget to buy one additionally.

Extras

The camera of this device is powered by either a built-in lithium battery or replaceable AAA batteries. In the first case, you just need to charge the unit before use, in the second case you need to buy new batteries once and again or use rechargeable ones. Some manufacturers include batteries and a charger. Besides, most models come with a USB cable for transferring the pictures to your PC and charging the devices powered by a lithium battery. A shoulder or a neck strap for carrying the unit is also a plus as well as the included carrying case. Most items come with a cloth for cleaning a lens; some models are even equipped with a cleaning kit which is very convenient because your pictures and the view quality depends on the lens cleanliness. Finally, if you are going to mount binoculars with camera on a tripod, please make sure that it can be used with one or if the package includes a tripod.

Birdwatching Tips

Binoculars with camera are most commonly used for camping, sightseeing, birding, hunting, watching sporting events and concerts. Birdwatching is one of the most popular outdoor activities that help you unwind and relax in nature's lap. Here, we would like to share some birdwatching tips that may help you make stunning shots to add to your collection.

Make some research.

Today, there is a wide variety of bird guides, so it is easy to get the one to your liking before you go birdwatching. The guide will help you to learn their habits to make your trip both successful and enjoyable. You can even write down your observations and take pictures of birds which makes it a lot easier to identify them.

Gear up.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned birdwatcher, you need a proper gear to investigate the wildlife. If you are going to take pictures of what you observe, consider buying binoculars with camera. Make sure your chosen device is equipped with high-quality eyepieces; usually, they have 10 x-12 x magnification; in any case, higher magnification level is not recommended for birding. Next, most of them have a 25 or 32 mm lens diameter, which is also a good choice if you need a portable unit that you can carry in your pocket. However, you if are looking for a model with a wider field of view, we recommend buying a piece with at least 32 mm lens diameter.

Be prepared.

It may take quite a while before you can see what you've come for, so it is advisable to stock up on water and snacks. Do not forget to wear a hat and sunscreen; clothing with long sleeves and repellent will keep you bite-free.

Be in the right place at the right time.

It is important to find a good spot for birdwatching, for example on the edge of a forest. If you hide away near the place where birds can get food and water, your chances will be high. Knowing bird's habits, it is easier to find them; some birds are active during the day, others, like owls, for example, are mostly nocturnal. You should also consider the time of year: some species appear in summer, others are likely to be seen in winter.

Learn to listen.

You can identify species not only by looks but by sound. Besides, listening carefully, you will be able to spot the bird with ease. It takes some time to learn to listen; try to notice all the sounds and their differences. It is known that listening to birds singing helps to relax and destress and even stimulates your cognitively. Observe the wildlife, listen to its sounds, and you will be rewarded with discovering its treasures.

Keep quiet.

It might be quite challenging to find some birds because they are easily scared away by noise and even brightly colored clothing. Sometimes you need to be very patient and keep quiet for quite a while before you can finally see that bird. The more fun it will be to watch it and take its picture.

Nature needs care.

Always remember that the wildlife beauty we admire should be treated with care. Do your best to not disturb nesting birds and do not forget that it is forbidden to feed birds and other wildlife in national parks.
