This is the first that I've ever heard of it. Does that mean you can take pictures of things using the image from the binocs? That would be awesome to get close up pics of things while you are far away. High Tech man!

does your computer have a Card reader slot? that's usually an easy way to transfer pics to the Computer.

i had something similar from baraska.it should have come with software and a cable.Iknow were men but did ya read the instructions

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

the picture taken is not exactly what you see thru the binoculars. it is basicly a narow camera with binoculars build around it. but the camera is setup to focus on distan objects. so you cant take a picture of something closer than 50 feet. but i took som pics of cows that were about 100+ yards and it turned out grea, almost exactly what you see in the view.

It did come with software and a cable, that i couldt get to work. (and yes i did read the instructions but dont tell anyone) after a few hours i finaly figured it out. and its not too dificult.

Overall i like this contraption, havent tested it in the feild yet but will soon, still a few days left of the season. its not as good as a good camera, and not as good as a good set of binoculars, but for a relativly new technology not bad. will let ya know if i find out anything new with it, and will post pics if i hapen to get anything cool. it has high and low quality settings, and takes movies (no soud but thats ok cus animals dont talk) and with the added card should be able to take lots of pics.

like i said mine was a baraska dont forget to take the batteries out.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
