Well, I just checked to see how a camcorder would compare to binoculars and the camcorder comes up way short.

I'm sitting here on the beach on Skagit Bay. Just took a look at some crab pot buoys with a pair of 10x42 cannon stabilized binoculars and can easily differentiate between each buoy. Then I looked at the same buoys wth a little sony digital camcorder with stabilization. No comparison. The binoculars are way better. The optics may be fine on the camcorder, but the little screen is very pixilated. Might work to plug it into a high def t.v. afterwards, but I'm thinking not.
