I was more than satisfied with this purchase. Easy lookup, easy ordering sequence, e-mail updates on shipping and expected arrival!!! I recommend overstock to everyone
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.
We had 8 x 23 binoculars before. The increased power to 20 x 50 made all the difference in the world! We could see birds before, now we can see their eyes and feathers! Like putting on a new pair of glasses for the first time.
The binoculars arrived in good condition and timely. As suggested they need a tripod mount to steady the view. If you intend to hold them, the view will jump slightly caused by your heartbeat. The only downside to them is they tend to loose some focus when you rotate the distance lever. I may find this will disappear after mounting on a tripod. If one purchases this, I think you will be overall pleased.
