Great value


I purchased this 16x50 model at WalMart for $59. The optics are crisp and clear. Very satisfied, considering the very low price. Comes with a storage bag, and a nice braided nylon adjustable neck strap. The 16 mag power is especially useful for...

Price, good optics, extra magnification for distant objects, target spotting

Adjustable right eyepiece does not have a reference scale

Consumer review by:

Excellent pair of binculars!


I was going to get a pair of Nikon because I know they have been around and all their other equipment has been fantastic but I settled for these and am glad I did.

Well made Excellent for astronomy or birding Price Excellent for looking far distances

Can get fuzzy/foggy if it is too cold

Bushnell ZOOM Binoculars


Bushnell Powerview Zoom Binoculars

Good quality, good focus, reasonable price

Not bad but carrying strap could be longer


Consumer review by:

Very good quality for being inexpensive. Bright, easy focusing.


I bought these binoculars from a large single-location sporting goods store near me about 2 years ago. What caught my eye was that they were on sale! Of course, who doesn't like a few bucks off? They were originally listed around $70 or $80, but marked...

Feels nice and solid, real glass innards. Quick focus, amazing bright image! Good value

Don't perform quite like more expensive models, but that's to be expected

Consumer review by:

Good basic set


I bought these binocs to replace a pair of small opera glasses in order to do basic surveillance at 50-100 yards. The lenses are very sharp at the lowest (7X) power and easy to focus. I agree with the other reviewers that it can be difficult to obtain...

Versatile, compact, with plenty of power to get basic job done. Good price

Not the choice for dedicated longer distance viewing; chintzy plastic neck strap

Do the job


These would not be my first choice for a serious bird watcher or observer, but they are a decent pair of binoculars for the money. At the lowest zoom setting, they are very clear, but when zooming out to the higher settings, the view quickly becomes...

Fairly compact and clear optics at lowest zoom settings

When zoomed out to the higher settings, you loose a lot of clarity

"Look dad! It's bigger! Is that better?"


Having long been an amateur astronomer, I can not count the number of times I have cringed when someone (usually another amateur astronomer companion) misuses the term "binocular," by referring to them as "binoculars," when they are actually referring...

An instrument of wonderful quality and performance

At night time the extreme power requires tripod mounting, but it is well worth it

Consumer review by:

Great binocular for sports watching as well as outdoor use


I like this binocular and have used it for watching basketball games in our university and watching nature such as birds. This product is very impressive, as its 16x magnification gives you a very long distace view and its wide angle design gives you...

1. clear view with 16x magnification 2. wide angle 3. insta focus makes it easy to operate 4. great for sports and nature watching

1. the strap is a piece of junk 2. heavy than expected

Consumer review by:

Great for Zooming in to Nature!!!


What a great product this is! My previous pair of binoculars were also Bushnell so I knew how durable their stuff was even before I went out shopping. I dropped that first pair on the rocky Maine coast quite a few times when I lived there. However,...

Very durable, easy to operate

Difficult to focus at highest zoom setting
