Image stabilization combines with full HD recording in 3D or standard 2D format along with the capability to shoot 7.1 megapixel stills. Of course binoculars are designed for observing the action from afar, and both models have 10x optical zoom. The DEV-5 steps things up a notch and includes digital zoom up to 20x.
