Well, maybe crims can afford to whack $1,400 - $2,000 down on a pair of digital binoculars, if they know the pay-offs going to be good. The Dev-3 and Dev-5 models shoot 7.1MP photos and 3D video.
Both models also shoot full HD video if 3D wrens aren't your cup of tea, and have image stabilisation last seen in Sony's range of compact cameras. So why spend an extra $600 on the Dev-5? For the GPS receiver, so you can geotag photos and video, plus the 20x digital magnification.
