Excerpt: I have tried it as an opera glasses. It has switch to jump between 5x and 10x magnification. 10x magnification is not needed and not useful in a theater even from the farthest point. 5x is good enough for a ballet but field view is not that wide as Bushnell 4x30 Xtra-Wide Binocular.
Excerpt: I was astonished how good these binoculars are for the price. Very clear image, great magnification, waterproof, fogproof and so compact and light. Ideal for traveling and hiking. Bought a pair of cheaper Bushnell 12x25 Powerview at the same time but the H20 were far superior for not much more.
