Captureview 8x30 1.3 MegaPixels
What can I view with my CaptureView Binoculars?
A: Use your CaptureView Binoculars for Sporting Events, Bird-watching, Public Events, viewing wildlife. Anything you would use a standard pair of binoculars for, the CaptureView will see and give you the added advantage of capturing the image.

These cameras have a Video Mode. How long can the videos be?
A: In Video Mode the CaptureView 8x30 Digital Camera Binocular will take movies (AVI Format) of up to 60 seconds in length. Use this mode to capture not just a moment, but the mood and feeling of an event.

How many images will it hold?
A: Capture up to 20 images at the full 1.3 megapixel resolution. More images can be stored at the lower resolution setting and/or with optional SD card.

What is an SD card?
A: An SD card is a Secure Digital Memory Card. This card will allow you to expand the amount of memory on the CaptureView camera. These cards are available in various sizes and can be purchased from any computer retailer. The CaptureView 8x30 will also work with Multi-Media Cards (MMC) up to 256MB.

Can I use the CaptureView 8x30 Camera on a Macintosh Computer?
A: If using a SD card you can download the images onto a Macintosh computer by using a flash card reader. You can also download your images to a Unix system. When using a flash card reader, the flash card looks like a Hard drive to your computer. Note: You cannot load to a Mac or Unix system using the camera's USB port - the USB port only can download to a Windows operating system.

Can I use other programs to manipulate my images? Can I use them to download images from my Camera?
A: You can use your other photo imaging/editing programs to manipulate your images. The CaptureView binoculars will have no trouble downloading images to other software.

How do I focus the Camera?
A: The Camera has a variable focus. There are two settings: one for "near" objects (30 feet to 66 feet) and one for "far" objects (66 feet to infinity). Change the setting by rotating the ring on the central Camera lens. Choose the icon of the person for "near" objects and the icon of the mountain for "far" objects. When looking through the binoculars you will need to focus them for your eyes, but the camera will always be in focus when you take a picture.


My computer doesn't see the camera. What do I do?
A: Look for the CaptureView Binocular Camera in Windows Explorer. The Camera should be listed as "Removable Disk" or "Binocular". You can browse the camera's memory as if it were a hard drive. You may now copy images or files from the camera's memory to your PC just as you would with any external hard drive or flash memory.

If the CaptureView Binocular Camera is not visible in Windows Explorer, try changing USB ports. Make sure to use a USB port directly on the computer, not a shared port or USB hub.
