    Nikon ED50, still fragile?

    I have had two Nikon ED50 scopes with the 27x wide angle lens and love their light weight and image quality.

This link also mentions the possibility of taking full-frame video and cropping them later. If anyone knows how to do this I be very interested to know about...

    Has anyone tried the cropped video out for birding yet...? Sounds like a good idea, it gives you a 480x640pixel video at 7x the magnification of the full image. I would have thought that this resolution would be good enough for some pretty reasonable record-shot videos. The only test video (not...
