Product Description

Product Description

  • Boasts durable design and rubberized, abrasion-resistant finish
  • Porro prism and coated lenses provide sharp viewing
  • 10X magnification, 50-Millimeter lens diameter, and auto focusing Porro prism

    Bushnell is the leading brand in high-performance binoculars, and the Falcon series offers powerful magnification at an economical price. Versatile, and ideal for stadium sports, bird-watching, hunting, and many other outdoor applications, the 10x50 model boasts a durable design and rubberized, abrasion-resistant finish. An InstaFocus lever provides smooth feedback, with just enough tension to fine-tune magnification, while a Porro prism and coated lenses provide sharp viewing. For those who wear eyeglasses, or sunglasses on bright days, clever fold-down eyecups protect your lenses from scratching.

    Making Eye Adjustments (Figure 1):

    The distance between the eyes, called “interpupillary distance,” varies from person to person. To achieve perfect alignment of lens to eye, follow these simple steps.
  • Hold your binocular in the normal viewing position
  • Grasp each barrel firmly. Move the barrels closer together or further apart until you see a singular circular field. Always re-set your binocular position before using. Improper alignment of the interpupillary distance can cause double-images.

  • How to Adjust for Individual Eye Strength:

    Bushnell Falcon binoculars utilize the “Insta-Focus” focus system. "Insta-Focus" binoculars have a central focusing lever between the barrels. Focus at any far or near distances can now be attained simply by pressing the “Insta-Focus" lever.

    Eye Cups (Figure 3):

    Bushnell Falcon binoculars are fitted with rubber fold-down eyecups designed for your comfort and to exclude extraneous light. If you wear sun/eyeglasses, roll down the eyecups. This will bring your eyes closer to the binocular lens thus providing improved field of view.

    Specifications:

    • Magnification/Lens Diameter: 10x / 55mm
    • Auto focusing Porro prism
    • 25-foot close focusing distance
    • Weight: 27 oz.
    • Eye Relief: 9mm
    • Exit Pupil: 5mm
    • Field of View @ 1,000 yds: 300ft




    Handy fold-down eyecups prevent prescription glasses and sunglasses from scratching

    Very easy to focus and very clear viewing.
    Kindle Customer
    I called Bushnell's customer service line and while the guy was really friendly, he flat-out told me there was no way to fix them, that I'd have to ship them back.
    Lance A. Knapp
    I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a very functional economical pair of binoculars.

    These binoculars perform very well during daytime and are good for the occasional birdwatcher or for viewing any outdoor event. The light weight and the insta-focus make them very easy to use. I bought them for stargazing (very tight budget!) and I am very satisfied with them giving what I paid. I have been able to locate and clearly see many Messier objects (ie. M22, M13, M11, M3, M5 and the great Andromeda Galaxy M31, and many star clusters such as M39 and the coathanger) and double stars with the Falcons, and they give a nice view of the summer milky way although the view is not very bright since the Falcons are not multicoated, but for [money] you really can�t ask much. Overall, excellent value. Buy the Falcons and Terence Dickinson�s �Nightwatch� (�Turn Left at Orion� is another good one) and you can get into backyard astronomy ...

    These binoculars cost a hair over twenty five bucks on amazon right now - you're not going to beat that deal in terms of value for money anywhere. They have decent optics.

    However, don't think you're getting high-quality construction for that money. These literally disintegrated on me on a recent international trip where they were subjected to neglible abuse (they were mostly carried around in a small backpack on long hikes and sometimes tightly packed in my suitcase). The shaft that couples the two eyepieces to the focusing mechanism is held together with flimsy plastic on both ends, and one of the ends simply snapped off, leaving me with an unusable set of binoculars.

    The warranty on these is laughable (you have to pay to ship these - at a cost that's well over half the cost of buying a new pair - to Bushnell where they determine whether it's a manufacturer defect and, if so, send you a repaired item in a few weeks), so my options were to buy a new pair or to try to repair these on my own. I opted for the latter.

    In so doing, I took a look inside. It looks like Bushnell cut every corner possible when throwing these together. Most metal edges have been poorly milled, resulting in uneven surfaces. A white adhesive substance has unevenly and sloppily been applied inside to hold the optics assembly together. Not encouraging.

    That said, I'd buy these again. Even if I burn through one of these every year due to the shoddy construction, I'd have to go a decade of doing so before I'd have spent enough to equal the cost of a well constructed pair of binoculars that gave me 10x50 magnification.

    I bought a pair of these on sale (from my "gold box" -- 10x50 is supposed to be the ideal for stargazing. I figured that this might come at the price of some chromatic distortion (tolerable) or difficulty focusing (intolerable). Last night was a "clear" night here in the South Bay. I live about a mile inland, on the coastal edge of Los Angeles' vast light pollution. No marine layer, and I quickly pulled the full moon into focus, then adjusted the other eye-piece. They work for me, but if my eyes get much worse ... I'll have to pass them on to somebody younger.
    Enough of the moon, already. I wanna see something I don't see on a regular basis. A quick scan of Orion showed some nebulosity visible, even above city lights. They feel steady. I'm looking forward to more star time.
    I didn't notice any chromatic aberation. I have only three minor complaints:
    1) No tripod socket for making sure that kids can see what you want them too see. No socket was promised ... so this is not a really fair complaint.
    2) Lens caps are cheap and tend to fall off. Watch out for them. It wouldn't have cost that much more to manufacture better lens caps--Bushnell ought to fix this one.
    3) I would have designed the adjustable lens with a broader range of diopters for those of us who don't quite see as well as we used to.
    All in all, a great pear of binocs for searching the night sky.

    These binoculars are terrific! I shopped around for a long time for a good pair of binoculars. When I received these I was amazed at the quality and clarity for such a GREAT VALUE! Average binoculars have a magnification of 7 x 35, but these wide angle 10 x 50 binoculars put those others to shame. Bushnell is a well known company and they have out done themselves with the Falcons! If you are looking for a reliable, clear pair of binoculars... these are the best value!

    Found to be a real good one. Compared it with couple of others with my friends. This one is more clear, lighter and fun to watch. Only thing is even if it says its "wide angle" its not a really "wide angle". But found it to be very good for bird watching and general purpose.

    I purchased these binoculars for my mother's birdwatching hobby. They are very nice and the view is very good. They are easy to adjust and seem quite durable. I had an old pair that I gave away because I could never adjust them to see anything. These worked well the first time and didn't take much adjusting to get a clear picture. They are well worth the money.

    I could not believe that these binoculares, would be this nice for the price I paid! I love to take them to the ocean,view the ships, and the seagulls, and I am a rookie at bird watching. I wear glasses, and I didn't know how they would adjust, but the auto adjust, is truly auto adjust......I love them, and the I love the price.Bushnell great job!
