Good for brightly lit subjects if you're young, have 20-20 vision, and both eyes are the same
on February 20, 2011
These things work by setting the focus to infinity and reducing the opening on the ocular (eye piece) side. That maximized the range of distances that are in focus and reduces the amount of light that gets in. The result is a slightly dimmed and more possibly in focus image. For noon-time football or other midday activities it's OK. Of indoor things like plays or evening activities, not so much.
If you wear eye glasses these won't work well. There is no way to hold them comfortably against your glasses.
If you eyes are different, as they are for most people, these won't work well. There is no way to individually adjust the separate eye pieces (as there is for all but the most least expensive :) binoculars.
If you are old, as I am, and need reading glasses, as I do, these won't work well. See the reasons above.
If none of these apply then you will probably find these a good value. Otherwise, search out binoculars with the functions you need and leave the magic to the magicians.
BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews can take the place of first-hand experiences that are lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and work hard to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and if there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.
