Information

What are good outdoor binoculars?

Are you looking for binoculars that can be used for almost anything? All-round binoculars are compact and light-weight to make sure you can easily put them in your bag and always have them with you. Because you don't know what you will run into at any given moment it is wise if all-round binoculars are waterproof. For that reason we ask the following from all-round binoculars: an average magnification factor of 8x or 10x, waterproof and not too heavy.

What do you need to pay attention to when purchasing outdoor binoculars?

Magnification factor of the pair

To properly spot birds and animals it is best if you choose binoculars with a 8 or 10 magnification. A magnification larger than 10 will leave you with a very narrow field of view and an image that is difficult to keep stable. Binoculars with a magnification smaller than 8 will, obviously, not bring the image close enough.

Waterproof binoculars

You, of course, take a pair of binoculars outside, if you want to look for remarkable animals, even when it rains. Let's say you take the binoculars with you on a holiday to a tropical rain forest where the humidity is high. It is then not practical if the image becomes cloudy because of moisture. For that reason it is important that a pair is waterproof. The binoculars filled with nitrogen or argon are already waterproof because otherwise they would lose their gas filling. As such these binoculars will not fog up when there are large(r) differences in temperature. A big advantage! Button: back to the binoculars selection guide
