Excerpt: These are good binoculars, especially at this price. Be aware that when zoomed in to 22x they are hard to hold steady but that is only to be expected. To help they come with a tripod adapter but anything solid on which to brace your elbows will work. at 18x or less they are easy enough to hand hold.
Excerpt: In conjunction with my bird photography, I need a good pair of binoculars. Since my camera gear is Nikon, I went with the Nikon Aculon A211's. They are solid, well-made and perfect for this use. The "zoom" function lets me see the image in a similar focus to my 500mm lens.
Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Solid, Strong Construction, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Excerpt: I have been using a cheap pair I got for free for a few years and I use them almost every day as we have a lot of wildlife around my house. I had to close one eye or else you would get a slight double vision.
Pros: Close Focus, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
