Super binoculars!

  • Excerpt: I'm a birder of sorts, and my wife and I have two pairs of 10x50 Nikons that work just fine. I wanted more enlargement, and these 16x50s are just what the doctor ordered. They don't weigh but a few ounces more than the 10x50s, but seeing something at 60% larger is a real thrill! The housing is comfortable and provides a good grip, and the lens protectors fit very snugly. The eyepiece adjustments are easy to use and change for different users. I love 'em!

Just what I expect from Nikon

  • Excerpt: Heavy, yes, and that's the one and only con I have for this well built piece ( some may need a tripod ) The optics are amazing, the view is so bright and clear and I am so surprised at how crisp and detailed the subject was at a distance of a couple miles, I've owned binoculars, spotting scopes and telescopes all my life but when I hold this Nikon I can feel it is a substantial piece, and compact for it's power and a precision optic that can't be beat for the price, just...

Long view

  • Excerpt: I'm using these because I live in a highrise with the best view in the world and wanted to get a better view of the boats and wildlife from my balcony. Glad I chose the 16x50's instead of 10x50's - the extra magnification is helpful. The 16x50's are right on the verge of requiring a tripod (not necessary, but very helpful), and when looking at slow-moving things (boats, the moon, buildings, etc) I always use the tripod.

Just Okay.

  • Excerpt: These are Value minded binocs and not of high quality. I would rec you save your money for some time and get a pair of Minox 15 power for 599 or Vortex 15power for 650. The images are okay in the middle of the day but they struggle to gather light in early AM and late eves. The edges are blurred. Higher power binocs of quality are hard to,come by and you get what you pay for,,,,,, Go try some high power binocs and compare, then shop for the best deal.
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Waterproof

  • Excerpt: We were able to see whales clearly from the shore, which is what we wanted. We need to get a tripod because the binos do get heavy after awhile.

as advertised

  • Excerpt: I use the 16x50 Action binocs for animal spotting in conjunction with my photography work. I bought them to have the ability to "reach out and touch" the animals at a distance and they do this job VERY well. SOlid build by what I can see. Rubber coated. NIce case but no carry strap for the case. Tripod mount works fine and you WILL need it to steady the view.
