About this deal

Durable, high-quality craftsmanship that defies all natural elements and a rubber-coated grip that ensures a secure hold make these binoculars ideal for outdoor use. My advice, as always, is to try at least three similar binoculars and take the best, even if this is a demonstration binocular. Their traditional Porro prisms and anti-reflection coated optics maximise the light entering the 40mm objectives to produce bright and clear images with a rich depth of field. Not the chewy, chocolatey kind sadly but these cookies are useful to help show you relevant content. A wide field of view makes locating a subject quicker and easier, especially when tracking fast moving subjects such as birds and animals.

If you need advice or support for your product, please in the first instance contact the support provider using the number on this support page. Single-layer coated lenses and prisms deliver crystal clear, extra bright and high-resolution images. The difference between single coating and multicoating is much smaller than marketers would have you believe. Thanks to the 50mm objective lens which delivers the best and bright images even in dim lightning condition. You can see a lot with less than ideal binoculars, a cheaper pair used will see more starlight than a premium pair stuck in a closet, as the OP seems to be on a tight budget I say get the Olympus ones and save for a better pair down the road, I have a low cost 10x50 from Opticron, they look very similar to the Olympus, possibly from the same far Chinese factory, they work fine, as good as my Nikon Action Ex,s?A great field of view, probably equal or better than many other roofs and porros for 10x magnification. It's cloudy so I won't be able to see any stars tonight, but I did test looking into a pocket torch on a black background, and it really wasn't bad. Theh are not bulky, have less weight with great field of view and the performance is equal or better than the 10x50 versions. Olympus presents its popular standard binoculars series, featuring a wide field of view and high optical performance for nature observation, wildlife, birdwatching and sporting events in a brand new ergonomic design. Considering that Opticron giving you a particularly good Adverturer TWP, I'd go for the 1 degree larger FOV and lose a couple mm ER and procure a 10x42 TWP!

The 10x21 PC I Binoculars non-slip rubber grips and thumb-rest will give you a stable and comfortable view. Once again, the down side to these binoculars is that their large magnifying power results in a shaky image unless you can steady the binoculars while viewing an object. I've only ever owned one pair of binoculars before, a smaller Olympus that my parents bought me 20 years ago.

There is always a better pair of binoculars, a better telescope, an piece of gear that will show more, is more perfect. I confess the attraction for me is its comparative rarity, prompting bystanders to glance askance and wonder what on earth it is. The only reason that the Trooper did not score higher in the clarity rating is due to the shakiness that results from viewing images with a powerful magnifier of 10x.
