While this is a cool item at a great price, the quality of the pictures is fair to poor.

This was a gift for my dad he really liked them he likes the outdoors so they are perfect for him to capture images up close and take pictures the only thing wrong was the computer disc was missing from the package.

I had several Sharper Image camera binoculars but no longer work because their drivers don't work for Windows 7. Saw these for a good price so thought I'd try them. Yes the manual is not so good and print so small it's hard to read, and yes the display gives you cryptic two letter codes, and when I tried the compression setting nothing works, and the pictures don't show exactly what you see in the view finder, but the picture quality is pretty good for VGA if you keep them still on a tripod or even monopod. Found the new drivers for my old camera's online so I'm happy and for the price, these are ok. Holds 20 pictures and no SD card slot and it does not act like a drive so you do need to use the driver. Kids would love these and inexpensive to take into the woods. Do need a compatible computer to show the pictures.

These binoculars are more for kids...not what I thought. But for the price I guess kids could have some fun with them and they are cheap enough you can leave in your vehicle.

I got bought these as a xmas gift, it was a great idea as i thought until i saw that you can't see the pictures until you upload them, and then the middle peice makes it very hard to actually look into the binocular part, pretty uncomfortable actually.I was suprised these are actually from Sharper Image but it doesn't seemed to be good sharper image since it seems very cheap.I'm actually disappointed in these

I purchased the Sharper Image Binoculars/Camera because of the reviews I read. I'm saving it for a Christmas present. I was very pleased with the reviews that other people wrote though. My overall rating for order and delivery time is definetly 5 stars.

These binoculars are exactly what they say they are as far as optics go. The only disappointment to me is that the digital shutter speed is about a 60th of a second so if you move at all your pictures come out blurred. These are not high dollar binoculars though so I think it is a fair deal as far as price vs quality goes.

I just bought this product today and have found that the pictures are almost completely black. I hope that I have a dysfunctional one or something because this is very disappointing.

THis is Xmas gift I can only comment on the arrival (on time) and since I know nothing about this product I will have to revisit this.

does the job just fine, not for high powered top security photos or anything but is great for nearby observations.

Does what was wanted....Instructions on how to go from binoculars to computer were a little hard to follow, but I am a novice computer user.

Well you certainly get what you pay for.....not much! Spend the extra money and get one that actually delivers some photos you can use! It's hard to center and even harder to get sharp pics ......and they only look good at "thumbnail" size.

This item is a great idea! The binoculars work well. The one thing I don't like about the camera is that you can not view the pictures until you connect to your computer. I only took pictures from my living room window, so I do not yet have enough information on ho well the pictures turn out.

I didn't expect much for the price but I would rate this as less than a toy. No MAC software. PC software sometimes doesn't load pictures. Poor battery life, binoculars out of alignment so must be used as monoscope. Only works in bright sunlight and then picture is poor.

This is a cool novelty item. It does the job, and for the price, I don't worry about damaging them while outdoors. I took a bunch of pictures when I went camping last week and they were easy to download and the pictures were decent. My kids really enjoyed it,as well.

I was at a regatta last spring and parents and i were discussing "wouldn't it be great if they had binoculars that were also a camera?" and voiala! I purchased these to donate as a prize for an indoor regatta on ergs. I was so proud that they used as the grand prize = I'm sure they thought they were much more expensive than they were! I can't comment on quality, but appearance and concept = super!

I bought one of these as a present for Fathers Day, and my Dad liked it so much I got one for myself. For the price it's great, and super convenient when hiking. I don't have to worry about having something incredibly expensive strapped around my neck when I'm trekking around the outdoors and the pictures come out great. If you're in to super high tech things, maybe this isn't for you, but for the rest of us it's a bargain!!

The binocular part is pretty decent. The camera picture is the poorest quality I have ever seen and additionally, The photo is only a section (Top center) of what you see through the binoculars. I was able to take a couple of pictures before the camera stopped clicking pictures. Now they are just binocular's. Kind of seems like one of those items you ordered as a kid out of the back of a comic book. Seems great and then ends up a major disappointment! Such a bummer!!
