Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The DXR-8 Video Monitor by Infant Optics is the first baby monitor with interchangeable lens technology. Three separate lens types — Normal, Wide Angle (sold separately), and Zoom — allow you to choose the most suitable focal length and viewing angle for the specific environment, just like a professional camera system. Video is streamed realtime to a compact 3.5" LCD color display providing a crystal clear image. The DXR-8 is packed with a roster of advanced features for added convenience: remote camera pan/tilt, infrared night vision, talk-back function, room temperature sensor, and more.

This camera is an investment that grows with your family. Use a close-up lens for intimate vision of your infant, and swap for a panoramic lens when your child becomes more mobile to provide a full view of your child's activity.

Total Vision control of your baby's room, or any room, is finally a reality. The DXR-8's innovative lens technology allows you to customize camera performance by switching different lenses on the camera in just seconds:

  • Normal Setting using the Aluminum Lens Hood provides a crisp clear image with mid-range coverage: close enough to ensure your baby is safe with a wide field that captures immediate surroundings.
  • Zoom Optical Lens is perfect for close-up viewing during sleep. Unlike digital zoom where software simulates an image to appear closer, the optical zoom effect does not deteriorate resolution or image clarity. Place camera far from your baby and still enjoy an effective close-up view.
  • Wide Angle Lens (sold separately) captures the entire room, a full 170 degree panoramic view. Best for active babies and toddler — they can play and explore and you can monitor them and their surroundings. Nothing will escape your notice.

Note: Optical lenses must be manually inserted into camera unit. Normal and 2x Zoom Optical Lenses included with DXR-8 Video Monitor set. Wide Angle Lens sold separately

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

I contacted Infant Optics customer service.
When using the wide angle lens you really don't need to pan the camera around much.
The product is simple, easy to use, with a very clear picture, and great sound.

We procrastinated on getting a monitor. After looking in the stores and online nothing really stood out. Lots of units were questionable for reliability and riddled by reviews of the camera or sound cutting out within the first 3-6 months. Infant optics stood out in their simple design and reliability. However, when we first looked the DXR-8 didn't exist. We picked it from Amazon while their website still said "Coming soon" (it apparently still does 6 weeks later).

Maybe the best selling point is the customer service others talked about with their dxr-5. Samsung, Sony and summer were at best 50/50 in reviews on customer service. Infant optics was always spot on. That was our major selling point.

We've been using the camera for 6 weeks (not long but she's only 7 weeks old so...) and it's been phenomenal. It's much better than our friends unit's (Samsung, Sony, Summer) and two switched theirs out for the infant optics.

Menu is intuitive and user friendly
Very Clear picture
Range - From the front of a 3rd story condo we can go downstairs and outfront to let the dog do her business with a clear picture. Once we put 2-3 brick walls between us the signal starts to go.
Changeable lenses. We just moved from a condo to a townhouse and being able to change the setup is fantastic.
LED sound level - Shows the baby's sound level when ambient noises are louder than her (laundry room, shower, vacuuming)
Adjustable Pan/Tilt/Zoom is quick and easy to use from the control.
Night mode is crystal clear
Great battery life.
Long powercords (10 feet for the monitor, 8.

First of all, this video review was recorded with my iPhone so the baby monitor LCD screen appears to be pixelated with grainy streaks. Similar to when I take pictures of my computer screen. Something to do with the different refresh rates of the LCD screens. Anyway in real life the monitor screen is actually very clear and the streaks don't exist.

As far as I know, the DXR-8 is the newest model from Infant Optics. This monitor is sleek and stylish, reminds me of the Playstation Vita. Audio is good on both the receiver and the transmitter unit, as they can even pick up the humming noise from my air purifier. Haven't had the monitor long enough to test the limits of the battery capacity but so far I've played with it for about 3 hours and the charge dropped a bar only (25%).

The exchangeable lens is a cool feature. The optical zoom doesn't lose resolution like a digital zoom, although this model does have digital zoom (and you can use it together for an intense zoom). The wide-angle lens is very cool, similar to a GoPro camera, it really extends the perspective to see the entire room.

I can't say much about the range about this monitor since my apartment is only 1000'. I get full signal strength in all the rooms, and it drops a bar (20%) when I shut the door.

The only feature I wish it had was a docking system where I can slide the receiver unit onto and it will automatically charge (much like a charging phone stand). It does come with an extra USB cable to station an additional charging point in the house but I don't think it's necessary.

This model does cost more than the average monitor out there, but I think it's a worthwhile investment.

This monitor was purchased to replace a Motorola MBP36 which failed twice with no sound and Motorola wanted 3+ weeks to ship out a replacement. We are very happy we switched.

This monitor seems to be very similar to the MBP36 with the following diffrences:

*The Infant Optics has excellent build quality and feels sturdy. The Motorola felt cheaply made at times and the sound completely failed on 2 Motorola units.
*Menu and navigation seem almost identical to the Motorola except for it does not have the annoying/horrible sounding lullabies that are on the Motorola. Almost like it's using the same software.
*The display quality on the Infant Optics is much better. Image is sharper and appears to possibly be a higher resolution.
*The infant optics parent unit/monitor uses a standard micro usb port for charging. You can use any usb charger with a micro usb cable or the included second cable this comes with. This make it easy to charge in other locations. The Motorola uses its own charger, which we would have to move any time we wanted to charge it in a different location.
*You can use the short cut key to adjust the volume and brightness without going through the menu.I don't think our Motorola had a shortcut for the volume or brightness.
*The battery life is better and it does not need as frequent charging.

The only feature we were no initially thrilled with was the sound it make when the display turns off after the designated time (3 min, 5 min, or never). We have grown to like this feature. It allows us to easily know how much time as passed since we looked at the display. This works great when we are trying to get our son to nap. If he falls a sleep within the first beep we know less then 5 minutes has passed.
