Bushnell Elite 8x42

 

If you're willing to spend a little more, the Bushnell Elite 8x42 binoculars are good way to go. They have almost all the necessary base stats. On top of that they have included their own extra technologies to help enhance your visual experience....

There are 60 layers of coatings on each prism

There is no email support

It is a typical flashy product that is good but not amazing.

Bushnell Excursion EX 8x42

 

There are a lot of binoculars that are in the area of "8x42" and they are all pretty similar. Out of those that we researched, the Bushnell Excursion EX 8x42 falls in the middle. The reason for that is that nothing was extremely better than the others...

It has a wide field of view

It has only the minimal eye relief

It's a fairly average set of binoculars that works great.

Fab binoculars!

 

Bought for a safari trip. All fab apart from silly lens caps.

Easy to Use","Excellent in Low Light","Great Zoom

Rubbish lens caps

Consumer review by:

Small, Light and Bright

 

Clear and bright image and comfortable to use whilist wearing glasses. They are small enough and light enough to carry around all day. Only small downsides are the case is thin leather and offers no protection, and the lens caps dont stay on at all.

Lens caps dont stay on

Though the product itself seemed of good quality for the money, I was looking for something to use for travel. The description said these were compact. When I received them they were large and very heavy - not at all suitable to traveling. I have been...

Uh, what is that thing over there?

 

We bought this product many years ago, and have always referred to it as "field glasses," as they are smaller than what we picture as "binoculars." Now, from the manufacturer's website, I find out that they are indeed compact ...

Viewing quality, within range; lightweight but durable

A bit pricey, sticky focus and spacing adjustments

Consumer review by:

Love them

 

These are such an improvement on my previous binoculars it\' unbelievable. The view is so clear and sharp.

Consumer review by:

excellent for the money!

 

For the money these binos are very good, ive used many other much more expensive and to me these are well worth the money, let down by the lens covers and case, which dont matter all that much anyway.

Excellent in Low Light","Well made and solid

Lens covers need a revamp

Product Specifications

Witnessing beauty in its natural state doesn't have to come with an unnatural price tag. Case in point, the NatureView binoculars. They're affordable and loaded with features. Designed specifically for serious birders and naturalists, the ultra close-focus capabilities get you close enough to take in all the details without getting pecked in the head. BaK-4 porro prisms on select models yield brighter images and better edge sharpness. Extended eye relief reduces eyestrain for eyeglass wearers during long observation periods. Adjustments are simple, thanks to the textured center focus knob. They're perfect for the budding nature observer. PRODUCT FEATURES: BaK-4 porro prisms for bright, clear, crisp viewing; Fully multi-coated optics for superior light transmission and brightness; Textured center focus knob for easy, precise adjustments; Rugged, non-slip rubber armor absorbs shock.
