Description

The compact 8 x 30 Navigator is also the most versatile. Designed like the bigger 7 x 50s, the 8 x 30 Navigator has been adopted for use as a smaller viewing or "back-up" companion. Its compact design and light weight make it suitable for any use. It fits easily in a coat pocket and features Steiner's Sports Auto-Focus. The 8 x 30 Navigator offers Steiner's brilliant new "anti-haze" optics for day time and low light performance. Even if you prefer larger 7 x 50s, or units with an integral compass, you'll want to consider the new Navigator 8 x 30 as the perfect second binocular. 10-year limited warranty.


About Steiner
From its humble, post-WWII beginnings, Steiner has become one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality optics. Optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947, offering products from small cameras to binoculars and special lenses. As the company grew, it increasingly focused its production on professional high-quality binoculars. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, the first binoculars ever with an integrated compass, the first binocular with special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.


Today, Karl Steiner's son Carl continues to strengthen and develop the company's position as a world leader in binocular production, utilizing the highest level of technology and setting high standards for future products with all binocular manufacturers. Steiner is located in Moorestown, N.J.

Comments about Steiner 8x30 Navigator Binoculars:

These aren't waterproof. When immersed in a bowl of tap water, some water got in one side and fogged the prisms. I exchanged one pair, tried a replacement and saw the same result. Steiner's USA service center recommended another model, the 7x30 Commander XP which is rated waterproof to a depth of 10m, but I haven't tested that.

The 8x30 Navigator optics are really excellent. Focus is sharp across the entire field of view, and the coating improves contrast without being obnoxious. They're fairly light and very comfortable to hold.

The Jeep of Binoculars?

By Gordon

from Undisclosed

Comments about Steiner 8x30 Navigator Binoculars:

I've had the Navigator 8x30s for two years of sailing, camping travelling, and just general abuse and they've never let me down. The optical quality is great, and they are durable. This is a go anywhere do anything glass that lives up to all my expectations. And they really do fit in a coat pocket.

Customer Q & A

Q1: How does the Predator 8x30 compare or differ from the Navigator 8x30?

A: The Predator uses a special lens coating Steiner calls CAT optics. The coating actually pulls through Browns and reds (the colors of game) while drowning out Blues and Greens (colors of foliage and haze)this is to help with spotting game.
