Nikon 10X25 CF Travelite EX Binoculars (Electronics)

Customer Review

Why just a pair of binoculars from Nikon? Personally, I have as many reasons for. At the top there is sympathy for the brand, because even after 15 years working with Nikon products they have never let me down or let down. So far I had only cameras and lenses from Nikon. These binoculars confirmed the existing impression and the quality that I'm used to from Nikon, rock solid.
Buying a pair of binoculars is probably depends primarily on the intended use. Here, the following factors were important to me:
It must be compact.
The box in which it is delivered, has the dimensions 13x13x7cm, which is compact. A larger binoculars remains there ever a matter of convenience often at home and there's no me. The weight of approximately 500g is also not a real burden, especially since you can attach it to the carrier bag on the belt where it does not interfere with and is quickly accessible.
It must be insensitive.
I have not tried it yet, but Nikon claims here that it can withstand a water pressure in 2 meters depth up to 5 minutes. I will not try, but against splashing or slight rain it should always be resistant, because I trust Nikon simple. The case is completely rubberized and it has hardly any cracks or gaps in, in which water or dirt might set. Under the rubber itself must have a metal body is because it takes very quickly to the ambient temperature. With high-quality optics that is also very important for the picture quality.
It must provide a clean image.
What am I supposed to say big? I use to take pictures not groundless Nikon lenses. Here the price-performance ratio was right and in this binocular is no different. Once it has been adapted to my own eyes on the diopter adjustment (rake on eyepiece), you have a knack sharp image with authentic colors and good contrast. The brightness decreases not noticeably when it adheres to the eye. So it's still good to use even in low light.
It has to be fast and easy to use.
Here makes this small binoculars correctly points. The central axis can be adjusted with a pleasant resistance to the viewing distance. Very useful I find here is that the eyecups can be removed with a half-turn about 1cm of the ocular lens. So you can put the eyecups literally in the eye sockets, without touching the lens with the eyelashes. This way you can adjust the viewing distance very well, there is absolutely no light from the side of his eye and the visual comfort is significantly increased. Eyeglass wearers have here probably not so easy. The index finger is when considering very relaxing on the center wheel through which the focus is adjusted. Again, a pleasant resistance which is just right for a finger. The focus can be so very fine and still adjust quickly. For me also very pleasant, the direction of rotation corresponds to my camera lenses, so I do not get used need me again. For get closer counterclockwise for farther clockwise. The close range is about 2m, perhaps very interesting to know.
I opted for the 10x magnification, because my trembling hands no longer permit. Here I need already a requirement to have a reasonably steady image. But again decide the purpose. Since my garden almost seamlessly into the forest goes, he is frequently visited by wild animals and many birds. For the binoculars with the magnification is just right and due to its compact size, I will often bring it on hikes. It has for me the optimal size and magnification, it looks like cast in one piece and is extremely practical in use. The build quality is great and fits the picture. Again a Nikon product with which I will have a lot of fun. Only two things I would criticize: for the front lenses, there is no protective cover. And when they sit around 1cm sunk into the body, which is probably not a problem and the protective bag should prevent fingerprints and dirt away. Especially since it fits in only one direction in the bag, with the front lenses down. And I would have liked a tripod thread, but what is not necessarily common in binoculars in size. The Nikon Travelite is a great travel binoculars, which provides a good image quality. Ideal for the experienced nature observer.
