The Eden XP 8x42 is a pair of roof prism binoculars with an incredibly clear and bright image, a high edge sharpness, 8x magnification, broad field of view, nitrogen-filled and suited for use up to -20 degrees C. This pair has been enhanced with top-quality optical elements you will often only find in much more expensive pairs, that is the Eden price advantage!
The top-quality optics take care of a very bright and clear image with a high edge sharpness (=sharpness up to the edge of the image). In addition, the lenses and prism's have been carefully aligned. You notice this because you can easily see through the pair.
Remarkable about this pair is the width of the field of view. This is at least 129 meters at 1000 meters of distance which is great for 8x42 binoculars! Combined with the quick focus this ensures that you will quickly and easily find your target.
The di-electric and phase-correction coatings on the prisms contribute to the very high light transmission of the XP models. The result is a lively and sharp image. The pair can be focused on objects closeby, up to approximately 1.2 meters! This is great if you want to study insects, for instance.
Roof-prism binoculars: compact and gastight
These binoculars are so-called roof-prism binoculars. A construction where the lenses are in line with each other. This makes the pair narrower and ensures that the pair is airtight. This is because there are no changes of volume when focusing. This in comparison to the so-called porro-prism binoculars where, while focusing, the outer dimensions of the pair change and the user might be inclined to suck in and blow out air.
Nitrogen-filled: no condensation
During the manufacturing process the pair was filled with nitrogen. As a result the bins can be used up to approximately -20 ° C without being bothered by condensation.
Great for spectacle wearers
The eye relief of 18mm and the decent ‘twist-up’ eye caps make these binoculars perfect for spectacle wearers.
