NEW YORK, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 166-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The HD Video Recording Monocular, a device that captures close-up 1080p videos of subjects in the distance.

The HD Video Recording Monocular has a coated BK-7 glass lens and roof prism that deliver sharp 8X optical magnification with a 100' field of view at 1,000 yards.

"The HD Video Recording Monocular allows users to view and record birds or landmarks in the distance at crystal-clear, high-definition resolution," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.
