And you don't just get too watch riderless banthas - you can video them in 1080p HD too, geotagging the location so you can avoid getting bashed with a Gaffi stick next time you're out.

The DEV-3 and DEV-5 binnies can do 3D and still shooting too. Pictures and films are stored on SD cards. There's HDMI out for on-telly playback. Both pairs have image stabilisation

The DEV-5 has 20x magnification, the lesser model 10x.
