Bushnell’s Image View
Bino-Camera sneaky machine.
There were times during my patrol days — long before digital cameras — when I wished I could have photographed miscreants in the act as I watched through my binoculars. I remember scoping out a burglar starting to pry a window, oblivious to the fact my beat partner and I were patiently watching him from hiding. Daytime burglars were hitting our residential areas hard, and we had stumbled onto this thug as he cased homes. Sure enough, some hidie-ho on our part led him into our hands after a brief but spirited chase over hill and dale. But how I would have loved to have had a picture of him prying that window! “Um, yes, Your Honor, here’s a picture of Bradley Burglar prying the window of the victim’s home.” Gotcha’!
Now you can have that picture, or even movie, for that matter. For around a $200 or so bill at street-level pricing, Bushnell’s “Image View” binocular offers a built-in 5-Megapixel digital camera, SD memory card slot (up to 32 Gig cards), still and movie mode and a decent 8×30 binocular. There’s a handy 1.5″ color LCD viewing screen and once you get it set up, basically a 1-button push gets you a picture.
