Description

The German optics specialist is extending its binocular and spotting scope segment with two new compact binoculars from the successful BV line. Waterproof, with optional 8x or 10x magnification, the MINOX BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 are compact binoculars designed for universal application. They are particularly valuable companions when handy and lightweight baggage is required – whether for traveling, sports, hunting or observing animals and plants. Boasting an exceptional price/ performance ratio they are also the perfect choice for those looking for a high-quality, yet still affordable gift.

 

When it comes to technical features compact binoculars from MINOX rank in a class of their own! Thanks to the modern optical system the BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 guarantee unadulterated viewing enjoyment with high image contrast and excellent detail rendition. All glass/air surfaces feature a multicoating for maximum light transmission and stunning brilliance of the image without interfering reflections.

 

The extremely sturdy aluminum body ensures reliable functioning of all optical systems and precision mechanics on the inside. An innovative sealing technology provides protection against dust and water. The BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 withstand moisture penetration up to a pressure of 0.3 bar or a comparable water depth of three meters. This also makes them suitable for extreme wind and weather conditions. Nitrogen filling of the binoculars ensures permanent protection against corrosion and prevents fogging of the glass surfaces on the inside, even with severe and sudden temperature fluctuations.

 

With their extended eye relief the new binoculars of the BV line ideally meet the individual requirements of people wearing eyeglasses, enabling them to enjoy the entire field of view without vignetting. Twist-type extendible rubber eye cups for setting the interpupilary distance are another convenient feature. The central joint mechanism enables fast individual adjustment of the distance between the objective lenses. The aluminum body has non-slip rubber armoring giving the new compact binoculars from MINOX a good and safe hold at all times.

    Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

    I recently received these binoculars in December of 2012. They appear to be look well made and look expensive. When looking through the lenses of these binocular's. They are very clear and bright. They look what you would find on larger and more expensive binoculars. Also, they are very light and small enough to be worn on your belt. I am very please with the performance of these binoculars. I would highly recomend them.

      Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

      I purchased these binoculars to use for hiking and backpacking. I picked them because of the wide field of view and waterproof construction. I read other reviews that questioned the optical performance and dubious quality control. I have been pleasantly surprised about this pair. It is plenty sharp, and a nice pair of compact binoculars. The minimum interpupillary distance (IPD) is rather wide though, I have to bring the tubes as close together as possible. These binoculars won't work for children.

      Overall I am quite pleased with the Minox BV 8x25, they are just what I was looking for.

            Comments about Minox BV II 8x25mm BR Compact Waterproof Binoculars:

            I was looking for a decent pair of compact binoculars for general purpose use that I could also pack for travel. I decided to listen to those who have gone before me and went with the almost jitter-free 8 power with an extremely wide field of view and eye relief 15mm or greater.

            Having made the decision on power, FOV and eye relief, there were really only two pairs of binocs left to choose from---these or the venerable, though slightly bulkier, Bushnell 7x26---at twice the price. I went with these. So far, zero regrets.

            I'm sure a trained eye could discern a quality difference in the optics between these two but for my purpose, an all-around pair of binocs with good magnification, steady image and a wide field of view, the Minox are more than good enough---at half the price of the Bushnells. They really are a great price/perfomance compromise.

            The only negative, for me, is using binoculare with eyeglasses. Although the eye relief measures 15.5 mm and is recommended as suitable for eyeglass wearers, looking through binocs while wearing glasses left me a little disappointed. There's something about looking at the image from that distance from the lens that left me feeling "removed" from the action. Fortunately, despite my astigmatism, I can remove my glasses and bring the eyepiece up close and immerse myself in the scene.
