New Swarovski AX Visio 10x32 Binocular

Swarovski just announced THE FIRST SMART BINOCULARS

Combining traditional high-precision sport optics with state-of-the-art technology, the AX Visio transforms the way we observe nature.

The AX Visio is the first AI supported binoculars to offer object identification with a simple touch of a button.

The SWAROVISION technology features spectacular color intensity, depth of detail and uncompromising image definition.

Assists with identifying birds and other creatures at the touch of a button.

Easily guide companions directly to your observation point. The AX Visio allows users to identify more than 9,000 birds and mammals.

Manage or share your observations (images & videos) in the internal media gallery.
Live view with up to four additional smartphones.
The built-in 13 MP sensor camera captures high-quality images and
4K resolution videos that can be instantly shared with a smartphone app.

As the first smart binoculars, the AX Visio with integrated apps open up access to nature and learning experiences with useful extra functions and different identification options – combined with outstanding optical observation quality.
The Swarovski Optik Wildlife ID smartphone app is the model on which the integrated Mammal ID, Butterfly ID,
and Dragonfly ID apps in the AX Visio are based.

The SWAROVSKI OPTIK Outdoor App allows you to transfer data to your cell phone and manage settings. The Live View feature (turn the mode selection wheel on the AX Visio to the camera symbol) makes it possible to share the view with up to four other smartphones using a QR code. The Outdoor App needs to be installed on these devices as well to be able to connect to the Live View with the AX Visio. In the app, select “I don’t have an AX Visio” (Settings – Connectivity) and scan the QR code shown on the master device. No identification is possible in Live View mode. When installing the app, please accept all system prompts (permission for access to photos, location, etc.), otherwise you will not be able to use all the functionalities of the app (for example, no photos can be saved). We recommend always running the updates available in the App Garden of the SWAROVSKI OPTIK Outdoor App.
Two different sizes of circle can be selected for identification support (using the arrow button). For a good identification result, it is important to select the size of circle that best captures the entire bird.
With Geolocation, the geographic location is factored into the identification process. This always runs automatically in the background if there is an available GPS signal (usually no signal in buildings). Without GPS, just one segment of the circle will be shown in bold in the field of view. As soon as there is a signal, depending on the detection quality, up to 4 segments are shown in bold – the more segments displayed in bold, the higher the probability of a correct result. The number of quarter segments shown with the identification result indicates the reliability of the result – the more segments, the more reliable the result.

For most effective use of this function, we recommend approximately the same physical location for observing and transferring. In other words, the second person should not be too far from the observation position (max. 1 meter/3.3 feet).

With its 13 MP sensor (4208 x 3120 px), the AX Visio's integrated camera provides a 4K resolution (1920 x 1080 px) for videos. The internal memory of 8 GB can store around 1,700 photos or 1 hour of video in full quality. Photos can be loaded using the Outdoor App, Merlin Bird ID, or Wildlife ID app. All photos are automatically sent to a special AX Visio folder created in the smartphone memory. In each case, all photos are transferred from the AX Visio.

Gimmcky nonsense whatever happened to learning fieldcraft?
We live in a world where everyone sits on their backside or spends half their life staring at their telephone screen. This gimmicky nonsense is designed to get people off their butts and out looking at birds / other wildlife.
What worries me though is that people will accept the ID given by the Merlin App, even though it might be completely wrong. People might be satisfied with putting a name to something, but the worrying thing is when they submit records to projects in the true belief that the App identified the bird correctly.

But as you say, whatever happened to learning fieldcraft?There is no substitute for getting close without scaring the bird, looking up birds in a field guide, and learning the various field characteristics and how to separate from confusing similar looking species. I don't mean to knock the product, as I have not tried it. And it does have its uses I am sure. Just not for me.

By the way, why all the free adverts for Camera Land on here?
