After having used many binoculars in the past, I realized that when you are on the move, you can't overlook weight and size. While a higher "x" factor could be tempting to many amateurs, I believe 12x is the upper sealing and beyond this is only to aide marketing than something to practically be handheld. While bigger objective aperture(~50) give you an advantage on brightness, clarity and a larger exit pupil, you can't really afford to ocarry that extra ounce when you already have a long list of camping equipment to carry up on your shoulders. I was looking for something handy, light weight yet powerful, so based upon my own past experiences, I narrowed down to Bushnell Powerview roof prism 12x25. And here is what I feel:

Pros:
- Very compact especially after folding. Both the barrels join 1-to-1.
- Light weight, yet solid feel.
- 12x magnification is perhaps the max for anything handheld.
- Focus it well and you will see clear crisp details.
- Comes with a diaopter adjust for someone who wears spects.
- Far range (I tried upto 20-25 KMs(~15 Miles)) and could see some good details. Also tried viewing moon to have an idea about farthest focusing and found it crisp.
- Under low lighting (dawn/dusk), you can view through an acceptable level of clarity.
- Features BK-7 roof prism but the exit pupil is perfectly circular. Clarity is just fine.

Cons:
- With 12x25 you get 2.1mm dia of exit pupil. Having said that, our eye's pupil starts with mere 2mm of dia so it is just the minimal window of view.
- To get the best results with mere 2.1mm of exit pupil, one has to ensure optimal inter-eye bridge adjustment to get the perfect circular vision. But once its done and combines with fine focusing, I am sure you won't get disappointed.
- There's a cheap thin undetachable string with these binocs. I wish Bushnell could offer a bare minimum acceptable neck strap.
- The supplied pouch too is a cheap stuff without any strap or even an option to attach an aftermarket.
- The diaopter adjust tends to rotate while to try focus using the centre rotary so requires a special attention.

Additional info:
- The pack includes: Binocs, pouch, instruction manual, a wiping cloth.
- Lenses are fully coated and have a bluish tinge. I personally recommend using a lens pen to clean them rather than teh supplied wipe cloth.
- A good quality BK-7 roof prism.
- The package mentions that the binocs have a chemical that might be considered as carcenogenic(cancer causing) in the state of california but doesn't give any detail about it.
- The package states "proud american company" but the stuff is "made in china".

I have an 8X25 Bushnell that works well and hoped the stronger one would enable me to get tighter close ups, but it is impossible to hold it steady enough to view our symphony orchestra comfortably. I have gone back to the old one.

                  Customer Q & A

                  Q1: Want to buy each of my 2 grandsons (9 & 6) binoculars for their trip to Alaska. Would these be the best for that age range or would you recommend something else?

                  A: Bushnell's 12x25mm Powerview Compact Binoculars would be ideal for children in the 6-9 age range.  They are small, lightweight, and very easy to use.

                  Q2: Am I able to focus each eye differently? (is this true for all binoculars?)

                  A: Bushnell's 12x25mm Powerview Compact Binoculars have a center focus, as well as a right eye diopter.  This is true for most binoculars that are not listed as PermaFocus.
