Key Features

  • Lead-free, Environmentally Friendly Glass
  • Compact BAK4 Roof Prism Design
  • Anti-reflection Fully Multicoated Optics
    Closed-Bridge Configuration
  • Twist-up Eyecups

Bushnell built them using Ecologically Friendly Glass that is manufactured without Lead, which is better for the environment.

They are outfitted with Compact BAK4 Roof Prisms and Anti-reflection multicoatings that work together to maximize light transmission to deliver bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color rendition and crisp resolution, even in challenging conditions.

To withstand harsh conditions, the Chassis is Nitrogen-filled to resist internal fogging, and O-ring Sealed to an IPX7 Waterproof rating—so this Binocular will handle a tumble into a pond or puddle better than you.

Optical Performance

  • Moderate 8x power magnifies the view while preserving a wide Exit Pupil and Long Eye Relief
  • 42mm objective lenses boost light-gathering ability versus Compact models for improved low-light performance without the bulk of larger objectives
  • Compact Roof Prism light path keeps the optical tubes thin for easy handling
  • BAK4 Prisms deliver a round Exit Pupil, and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection Fully Multicoated Optics maximize light transmission while improving colour rendition, contrast, and clarity
  • Apparent angle of view approaches wide-angle to help minimize the appearance of the distracting hand-shake that is common when holding high-power optics, and presents an immersive observational experience
  • 350-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Closed-bridge configuration offers a stable platform for the internal focusing mechanism
  • Textured and slip-resistant center focusing knob is easy to use even in cold and wet conditions or while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction dial helps to compensate for individual optical prescription
  • Twist-up Eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Standard 1/4″-20 socket on the front of the bridge hinge allows the use of an optional adapter to mount the Binocular onto a tripod, head, or quick-release plate
  • Long 17mm Eye Relief improves viewing comfort with reduced eye strain
  • Wide 5.25mm Exit Pupil will cover pupils as they open and dilate in low light and ensure the entire scene remains in view without vignetting

  • Lightweight and durable Aluminum Alloy Chassis
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring Sealed to be Waterproof to a rating of IPX7 and resistant to internal fogging
