Question about Barska Optics BDC AB10184

1 Answer

Not taking pictures

We have tried everything to take pictures with these digitial binoculars without success. The "owners manual" is less than helpful. The display seems to work, the shutter and power mode seem to work, it is difficult to know how/when a picture is taken (obviously we haven't taken any since the picture software cannot locate any pictures) despite us clicking away.

Am I really a dumb user? (ps I work in IT ! ) or is it just a non-functional pair of binoculars !

Thanks for any help!!! KD

    I also have the same problem the software and driver are installed .The counter showing photos goes down. The software will use the video mode but no still photos .

    Barska's website has no access to drivers. Upon contacting their support email requesting the drivers for XP they offered to ship them to me for $15.

    The binoculars are worth $40.



    Without the drivers I can't get the thing to work.



    Any help obtaining free drivers would be apreciated.

Please provide more information:
Have you loaded the software on the computer?
Is the software compatible with your computer operating system?
Does the computer recognize the binoculars when you connect them?
Lastly, an easy way to find out if it is the binoculars or a compatibility/connectivity issue with the computer is to use a memory card (rather than the binocular's internal memory) and then try to read the card independent of the binoculars.

Blurry pictures


You have to take pictures maybe 20 feet away. You may want to test the scope by plugging the camera into your computer and take pictures so they're instantly downladed on your PC so you can get an idea of whatthe range is. Yes, this camera is cheap, but what can you expect for less tha $15

Problems


There are two ways to reset the numbering count. One is in the camera under the menu, and the other is to clear all the contents of the card including the folders and sub files.

As for the clarity,make sure you are focusing the camera well. Do you have glasses? If so, have someone without glasses verify the focus before taking the picture.

Poor quality


My response to these always makes me sad. There is no way of getting good picture. These camera binoculars are neither good cameras or binoculars. They do neither well. The camera is just attached to the binoculars. What you see through the binoculars is not what the camera sees. The binoculars magnification is not the same as the lens in the camera. It is like holding a camera on top of a pair of binoculars. The camera will take a picture in the area approximate to where you are looking. Digital cameras have a sensor. The more megapixels the larger the sensor should be. Camera makers are now making compact cameras with huge megapixel capacity without increasing the sensor size. The result is worse looking pictures. Not much is different with the cameras attached to binoculars only the sensors are much worse quality than those on a stand alone digital camera.
Maybe not the solution you wanted buts its the truth. If you do want to take bird photos your best bet is a pair of binoculars on a tripod with a digital camera adaptor and camera attached. The camera adaptors that are made in China are not expensive and are copies of some of the high priced units out there. all the adaptor is is a bracket which attaches to a tripod which holds the camera to one of the binocular lenses. That way you see what the camera sees through the binoculars.

Bushnell Image View 11-8321


My Imageview ( Bushnell ) won't work with a 1GB SD card but will work with a 512Mb AND it will work with a 256Mb. 512 must be the maximum capacity.....Bushnell fails to mention this in the manual or specifications!!!
