    Quality not as expected.

    Focusing wasn't very good. We have a pair of old Bushnells that have a smaller range but are actually better quality.

    Comments about Bushnell 16x50mm Powerview Binoculars:

    First pair of bought Binoculars. Love the Ins-ta-Focus.Their definitely for distance, anything close just won't focus, but that's why I bought them for distance viewing. Not compact but not too huge to carry, pretty light for me. Subjects are clear. No coatings on optics, not water or fog proof. Maybe in the future my next pair will be but for now these are just fine. just no hurricane viewing, and will have too watch temperature changes. Otherwise a good buy for me.

    These are a great overall value. They're maybe a little bulky for carrying in the field, but not bad. Good clarity, nice detail, easy to adjust. For the money I think they are a terrific overall value. Take care of them and they'll last forever.

    Customer Q & A

    Q1: I purchased a set of Bushnell Powerview 16x50 Binoculars and I want to know if they have the diopter setting on them,because instructions say how to adjust,and the right side does move. Also someone told me this model 13-1650C has been discontinued.Is this true?

    A: Yes the right side is where the Diopter adjustment is, just follow the directions to set the binocular for your eyes. i have not heard anything from Bushnell about these being discontinued.

    Q2: Maybe I missed it but I did not see the weight of these binoculars shown anywhere, Can you tell me how much they weigh??? Thanks, Allana

    A: I beleive the weights are listed on the lower right in the specifications table but here is what it says there: Product Weight: 1.8125 lbs. Shipping Weight: 3 lbs The difference between product weight and shipping weight is the product weight is the weight of the product alone (not including box and packing material.)

    Q3: Hi, I am a little confused about the Bushnell binoculars being tripod adaptable. Can they be connected directly to a standard 1/4 inch screw mount on a tripod (or monopod in my case) or do they require the Bushnell Tripod Adapter (16-1001CM)to do so? Tha

    A: The Powerview's tripod mount is in the hinge, so you'll need the tripod adapter.

    Q4: I was wondering where is the product register page? I typed in what the register card says to do www.prodregister.com/bushnell and it does mpt take me anywhere, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!. Thanks, Scott

    A: The product registration page seems to be working now. Try entering www.bushnell.com, choosing your area and language, then proceeding to the Registration page. You should get a form to fill out.

    Q5: Will the Insta Focus on these binoculars limit my ability to focus in a specific object?

    A: Yes. Permafocus binoculars have a fixed focus location so you are not able to focus on anything in front of or behind the fixed focus point.
