Not great but not bad

Connor J, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Basically, what I can say is that my Canon Powershot SX50 HS "bridge DSLR" camera at its full telephoto end (1200 mm) provides better magnification and clarity than this binocular. I'm giving this 3 stars because the price is quite reasonable and the product is pretty easy to carry. I've had a tough time focusing this thing though.

Value for money

BW Kent, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice item and quality reflects the price. Perfectly adequate for general viewing, identifying wildlife, buildings in the landscape etc. and I found them much better to use than a telescope. The image is not as sharp as high end products but do you really need that if it costs hundreds of pounds more? These are nice to use and are not so heavy that they can't be hand held in the field although tripod mounting is helpful for prolonged viewing.

Great magnification but difficult to focus

  • Summary: I bought these as a gift but its very difficult to focus even with a tripod. Thinking of taking it to be checked out. In hindsight would probably buy a fixed telescope. Magnification excellent though. Might just be us as novices in this field.

OK for the price

  • Summary: You will need a tripod to use bins with such a large magnification, trying to view objects hand held is impossible, but that applies to any large mag optics. This particular pair suffer from horrendous chromatic aberration but then what do you expect for the price. If you're only using them for stargazing you'd be better off paying a bit extra and getting a medium size Dobsonian or Newtonian telescope, probably just as portable considering you need a tripod with these...

not impressive but good

  • Excerpt: Well its not impressive but compare to price its good. I must admit that in long range it works good. But magnification in long range do not work properly. Its too heavy also. Company must bring greater magnification power binos in long range ,and price must be under purchasing capacity.
  • Cons: Bulky

IDEAL FOR THE STAR GAZING BEGINNER !

DARRIN from WALES, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: A good item for the star gazing beginner. They certainly look the part, feel a good quality item and are quite powerfull. Remember they are an impressive 25 x magnification! However after two years of occasional use, both folding rubber eye pieces has now completly split and perished. They are a little bulky , so you may find that a suitable heavy duty tripod will cost the same again.

  • Excerpt: До этого у меня был совковый бинокль 20х60.
  • Pros: Лёгкий, прорезиненный, недорогой. В наборе есть чехол, крепёж для штатива.
  • Cons: Окуляры раскрываются не слишком широко. Например, мне среднестатистическому мужчине показалось, что можно было бы расширять их и посильнее.

  • Conclusion: Nie polecam
  • Pros: - powiększenie (jedyne co mi przychodzi do głowy - zapewne np. księżyc ze statywu wygląda lepiej niż w 15x70)
  • Cons: - jakość obrazu - wąskie pole własne okularów - cena wyższa niż 15x70 (nie mająca żadnego uzasadnienia)
