Description

Binoculars for land and sea...

 

Zhumell's 7x50 Marine binocular blends tough, dependable, nautical-grade optics with a stable, easy-to-read compass and range-finding capability. These binoculars are produced to be as useful to hunters and outdoors persons as they are to mariners.


Large, 50-millimeter objective lenses gather enough light to use the Zhumell 7x50 Marine binoculars well past sunset and well before dawn, and the large, illuminated, inner compass snaps to magnetic north. With a reticle to calculate the distance or size of an object, this binocular is an absolutely invaluable marine or hunting instrument. It will guide you to an accurate compass point or give you range to target without your ever looking up from the eyecups.


The waterproof 7x50 Zhumell binoculars with internal illuminated compass and range-finding reticle is nitrogen-filled to increase resistance against fogging brought on by sudden changes in temperature. Its rubber coating reduces impact shock, while increasing grip - even for gloved hands. And optically, it's excellent with fully multi-coated lenses and BaK-4 prisms to give sharp, clear images, even in dim light.


A unique, independent-eye, focus system assures easy, one-hand use, too. Just set the focus and you won't need to focus again to view any object beyond 15 feet away.


With Zhumell 7x50 Marine binoculars, you'll always know where you're going. Perhaps it's time to focus in on a pair!

I'll start off with the negatives:

The Instruction Manual was translated very poorly and stinks! You need to be able to look at these binoculars and figure out how to use them intuitively. Not that there's a lot to figure out(unless you are trying to determining the distance and height of some object, then the manual has all the equations you'll want and need) but for basic use and functionality, the manual is severely lacking.

The dust covers for the objective lenses do not stay firmly attached once in place. They fall off occasionally and it's usually while you're walking with them around you neck. Fortunately they are attached to the binoculars. I've had two of these binos to critique and both exhibit the same quirky lense cap fit. If you have small hands, these binos may be too bulky or heavy. My hand span from thumb to pinky finger is 11 inches. A perfect fit for my jumbo hand size.

Now the positives.

These binoculars are an impressive and robust build. I would place them just at or below a comparable pair of Steiner Mariner binos. Each eyepiece has to be focused individually which seems annoying at first, especially if your use to a focusing knob or lever but the quality of the optics and clarity of focus forgives that minor annoyance.

The collimation was right on, which is a non-existant with all low end binos and hit and miss with most mid-priced binoculars. Regarding the collimation. Check it by focusing on a bright star like Sirius or planet like Venus. When I first focused the right eyepiece and then the left eye piece on a star. I would then move the binoculars away from my eyes, then put them back up to my eyes and look at the same star I just focused on. "TWO" stars appear briefly (about two to three seconds), then the two stars merge and become one. Originally I thought the colimation was off. However, I believe it's just a matter of allowing one's eyes to acclimate to the magnified view. I was able to repeat this phenomonon every time I viewed a star. Once your eyes acclimate, the image is crisp and clear.

As for the reticle, its useful if you're trying to determine distance and height of some observed object, otherwise it's just there. The lighted compass is ok. That's what that black box is atop the right side body of the binoculars. They could have done without it but it's no biggie either way. May come in handy if you're without a compass or GPS.

These binos are nitrogen gas filled. Air tight baby! Water and moisture proof hence, the MARINE aspect to the name. It's nice to own a pair of binoculars that didn't cost you a small fortune but perform like they did!

I was somewhat disappointed with these binoculars. While optical clarity was decent, long-distance images were somewhat distorted. The internal compass was difficult,(small, blurry,fuzzy) if not impossible to read and extremely position sensitive. The light was no help. Overall fit and finish seemed good. While these binoculars are probably priced fairly for the performance they offer, I wish I would have saved my money and put it towards another higher priced but better performing pair.[...]

Comments about Zhumell 7x50mm Marine Binoculars with Compass and Reticle:

I was not expecting too much for the price, but was very pleasantly surprised. These are very good binoculars. Bright, sharp and well built. The only drawbacks is that they are a bit heavy and that the front covers will simply not stay in place. A real bargain for the price.

    Comments about Zhumell 7x50mm Marine Binoculars with Compass and Reticle:

    I have been looking for a good 7x50 Marine Binocular for months. These seemed too good to be true, but with the ability to return them...I ordered it. WOW, great find! Yes they are heavy, solid. Campare the weight to a major brand, same thing, heavy. They are so bright, it is easy to see on the water at night with starlight. Night vision? Almost! On the boat I attach a float in case they go overboard. I had to remove the battery wrap for it to work in the binocular, but no biggie. I will add a heavy duty strap as the one that came with it seems a little feeble.

      Customer Q & A

      Q1: Is the compass/reticule displayed in the binoculars all the time, or can it be turned off so the binoculars can be used without it as binoculars without the compass/recticule?

      A: All the time.

      Q2: Measuring Distance, Height and angle. Please can you confirm in the equation L=H/MILS x 1000, what is MILS?? Miles? millimeters?

      A: The MILS stands for mil dots. The number on the reticle vertically is that.

      Q3: Do these float?

      A: I am sorry but no they do not float, there are however Marine neck straps available that will make the binocular float.

      Q4: I watch airliners take off and land from my house which is between several major airports. how well do these binoculars pick up at 28 to 30 thousand feet? my opera glasses can pick up at about 15 thousand feet and even read the airline names but they are old and have no sun filters. can I expect better from these binoculars?

      A: You can definitely expect better as a standard opera glass is only 3x the naked eye while these are 7x though there is not a sun filter that I know of.

      Q5: What % of light gathering do the Zhumell 7x50 marine binoculars with compass have?

      A: IF you're referring to light transmission, that runs about 92%. As far as light-gathering ability is concerned, these binoculars have a "twilight factor" of 18.7, which means in general that they will perform quite well in low-light conditions.
