Its usable right out of the box. The controls are very easy to use, even my [...] son knows how to focus the binoculars. You can keep the zoom level at 10X for most viewing. When you really want to zoom in, the binoculars provide upto 22X zoom by just sliding a lever. At 22X zoom, you need steady hands or a tripod to view appropriately. The 10X zoom is more than sufficient for exploring the distant objects around you.
For starters, when you buy a binocular, you need to consider two aspects. The binoculars are usually represented in the format A X B where A is the magnification and B is the diameter of the front lens in millimeters. The more the better for both A and B.
This Nikon binocular is capable of magnifications ranging from 10 to 22. The front lens is 50 mm which is more than sufficient for everyday daylight and night viewing.
The Nikon lens are world-class providing crystal clear view. At night I focussed on the moon and could see the mountains on the moon very clearly.
Overall I would definitely recommend this product for everyone. Even adults who think that binoculars are for children must try this product as it will amaze them. Not to speak of teens who will marvel their "birds" in close-up!!!
These are very high quality binoculars and are a pretty good weight. They come with a soft case and covers for the lenses and eyepiece, and a tripod mount. There is a small lever on the right eye piece that you can ease left to right in order to take advantage of the 10-22 zoom. Because the diameter of the lenses is 50, these binoculars allow a good deal of light to come in so that you will see a bright, crisp image.
If you are into star-gazing then you are going to need a tripod. Nothing expensive, just something to steady the binoculars so that you won't be struggling to hold them completely still in your hands. When you're that close with the zoom you're going to need it.
Having another pair of NIKON binoculars, I decided to just trust the name. I could always send them back if they were crappy. And so I ordered them.
When I first got them, I looked through the lenses and my heart sank. It appeared the two images did not line up, even out of focus as they were. But when I went outside and actually focused on the moon, I learned it was just the way things are.
At 10x, the moon is beautiful, but still awfully far away. By adding the included tripod mount, suddenly I was able to use it at full zoom. Details on the moon fairly popped out in crystal sharpness.
But zooms do exact a price, even with very nice optics. In this case, the field of view was not anything like you'd get from a Nikon 10x50, even though the objective opening is the same. But even with a more narrow view, like you'd get through a quality telescope, the Nikon came through with sharpness, which is my major concern.
At higher magnification, you're going to need a tripod. The attachment that comes with these binocs fits standard tripods, so accept that you need a good, tall, tripod. Second, the moon moves, so your tripod should be able to remain tight, even when the screws are loosened. If you have a cheap, crappy one that wobbles or won't lock, you'll have a more difficult time.
The moon is gorgeous through these lenses. So are terrestrial objects. The zoom is clean and smooth, and, again, the optics are much nicer than you'd have reason to expect.Read more ›
