After years of suffering with dark, weak, wobbly binoculars (thank you, Magnacraft), I found myself needing two types: the best quality I could find (1) at any weight but under $250 for use within a drive of home (home binocs), and (2) under 10 oz, easy to travel with in tour groups, simple for impatient family members, and ideal for night concerts and day baseball games (travel binocs).

After studying reviews and comments thoroughly, I concluded there are brilliant experts commenting regularly on Amazon - much more insightful than the professional reviewers who focus on expensive, heavy devices purchased by others of their ilk. From my fellow consumers' insights, I purchased 11 binoculars with at least 70% five-star ratings that fit my general specifications for home or travel.

GENERAL CONCLUSIONS. After exhaustive examination - reading a DVD box at 46 feet, finding individual cattle from a moving minivan, and watching stars and planets in my backyard - I concluded the essential attributes for binoculars across categories are:

(A) Plenty of Light brought to your eye. Light is determined by the diameter of the light-gathering lens divided by the magnification. In other words, an 8x42 pair has a ratio of 5.25 and produces LOTS of light, while a 10x21 pair has a ratio of 2.1 and always appear dark. Conclusion: About 3.0 is adequate and the best available for compact binoculars.

(B) Good Stability of View. View stability depends on (i) the degrees of field of vision (can you find what you are looking for), (ii) the depth of visibility (do you have to refocus for every few feet of depth), and (iii) wobble (which is itself determined by (i) and (ii)).

I carry alot of heavy photography equipment, and needed something light weight for wildlife searching. I lost the first pair, and loved it so much I bought a second pair! The light is fairly good, and I don't have any problems with the Nikon 7278 Travelite IV. It gets the job done, about the lightest you can buy, and the small carry pak that comes with it attaches neatly to my hip pack. One less thing to carry. The 10X was a pleasant feature. I didn't want anything shorter than that. Of course if you want wide angle, you might consider a 7x wide angle, but that was too short for me.

When I went to Africa a few years ago I wanted to update my binoculars and after much research I bought this Nikon. When I ruined my pair during a Kayak trip, I didn't even look at anything else, I just got the exact same one. I've been totally happy with them. They are light weight, not too expensive and have served me well for my birding needs.

These Nikon binoculars are absolutely what I needed and wanted. They are a wonderful size, light weight, and extremely clear. I love to travel and these will be perfect. I could not have asked for anything better!

I've ordered and tried this "Nikon Travelite VI" and found it very light, nice and small to carry around but the eyepieces are uncomfortable to use since it does not provide enough adjustment to accomodate both eyes. Returned it back to Amazon the next day and ordered Nikon 7216 instead, although it is bigger and heavier but it's very comfortble to use with better lens and adjustment and much cheaper!

I tried to get away with a cheaper pair that many others had given good ratings, but they were no good and I returned them immediately and ordered these. They are quite impressive for their size and weight and work even better than our very large binoculars from years ago. I needed something light and powerful as these will go in my hiking backpack. The rest of the time they sit in our sun room for bird watching! Even my husband is very happy with them and he is usually a tough critic! Good buy!

I chose these because they are similar to ones I lost. I like the single rotating point between the lenses. I got a pair at another place that had a dual pivot point and I had a real hard time adjusting them to fit my face and returned them. They also focus much smoother than the ones I returned. Looking forward to using them on vacation.

We love to watch the birds in our backyard and these are great for that. This is the second pair that we have purchased because we loved the first pair so much. They are crystal clear and easy to focus. I would definitely suggest these binoculars.
