Brookstone Binocular/Dig camera

by Kazrath / January 30, 2006 8:03 AM PST

I recieved one of these as a gift for Christmas. Out of the box it does not get picked up by WinXP. I was provided no disk with device drivers.

Anyone have these available?

10X25/1.3 MegaPixel Digital Camera/Binoculars
Part 392027

Obviously I am looking here because their support is less than adequate. They manufacture hardware that is suppose to have PC support but provide no support page with downloadable drivers.

If you have em available let me know and I'll give u an email to send them to, thanks.

Binocular/Digital Camera

You are not likely to find anyone that supports this device.

These are gimmick (toy) devices that are usually sold in blister packs through discount and close-out sources.

I noticed that ''The Geeks'' has one for sale, that was distributed by VuPoint Solutions:

I checked the VuPoint website and they don't even list it anymore:

VuPoint offers lots of gimmick cameras, but if you check their downloads and service sections you can see that they provide no real support for the devices they sell.

I have that cam/binoc
by body_double / February 18, 2006 2:13 AM PST

I gave my husband that cam/binoc last Christmas. The disk was included. Everything is working smoothly so far. Had trouble finding the serial # to download the manager but it was on the disk inside the machine. Call Brookstone and they will send you the disk. While some say it's a toy, they do guarantee their goods for life. We've just returned from a trip around Cape Horn with the cam filled with photos. You can reach Brookstone at Customer Service : 1-800-846-3000. Good luck!!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
