Introduction:
These are the best entry level value for money binoculars available, with the look and feel of more expensive binoculars on the market. We do not recommend you go any lower on value or quality!

These are the best entry level binoculars on the market. Please do not waste your time buying small pockets binoculars or big, overweight Porro Prism binoculars that have inferior lens coating and build quality. These have the look, feel, and optical performance of more expensive pairs of binoculars and we strongly feel they are the best entry level value for money binoculars available. Features that are important for enhancing your safari viewing include:
• Multi-coated lenses for superior light transmission (particularly important in the early mornings and late afternoons on safari);
⊙ Good field of view of 293 ft at 1 000 ft (this means that, while you have brought the subject 10 times closer, you still enjoy good peripheral vision - so important when following moving animals);
• Close focus of 11 foot (while binoculars have the obvious advantage of bringing distant subjects into view, it is while viewing wildlife at close quarters that the magnification allows you to see incredible detail and really appreciate the animal/bird you are viewing);
• Good eye relief of 15,5mm (this means that you are able to hold the binoculars 15,5mm away from your eyes and still see the full field of view, which is very important in ensuring that your eyes do not tire when watching prolonged hunts or while trying to identify a particular species. You therefore do not need to feel as though your binoculars are glued to your face);
• Twist-up eye cups (far more comfortable than fold-down eye cups - and last longer too). If you are travelling during the rainy season in Africa (ask us if unsure), then please note that the only downside to these binoculars is the fact that they are not nitrogen-filled and are not fog or water proof. For waterproof, nitrogen-filled and o-ring sealed binoculars please see the H20 range.



How to set up your binoculars for your eyesight:
1) We all have slightly different eyesight strengths and so you will need to set up your binoculars to suit your eyesight, using the dioptre setting. If you do not do this your binoculars will not focus correctly.
2) Please follow the instructions on this page under the heading “Setting the Dioptre for your Binoculars:” thesafaristore.com/products/binoculars/techTalk.
3) The location of the dioptre may be different depending on your binoculars. Simply check your user manual to find out where the dioptre is on your binoculars. The same steps would still apply.

⊙ SETTING THE DIOPTRE FOR YOUR BINOCULARS: It is crucially important that you set up your binoculars to account for your eyesight. Here is how you do it:
• Pick up your binoculars and look through them as you normally would;
• Close your right eye so that you are only looking through your left eye;
• Pick an object that has texture about 10 metres away and, looking through your left eye only, turn the Centre Focus knob until the object is in focus and crystal clear to view;
• Now, keeping your binoculars pointed at the same object, close your left eye and open your right eye;
• Using the dioptre (the movable ring) and only looking at the object through the right lens with your right eye, turn the dioptre until the object is in focus for your right eye;
• Your binoculars are now set for your eyesight.
• Only use the Centre Focus Knob for focusing from this point on.

⊙ WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN:
• MAGNIFICATION: Binoculars are often referred to by two numbers separated by an "x". For example, 10x42. The first number is the power of magnification of the binoculars. With a 10x42 pair of binoculars, the image of the subject being viewed is brought ten times closer to you through your binoculars (compared to viewing the subject with the naked eye). Through our experience, we have found that a magnification of 10x is ideal for safaris. 8x magnification would do but we feel that, unless you have a specific reason for using 8x magnification binoculars (for example, if you are a birder heading to the forests of Uganda), it is always better to have the subject you are viewing 10 times closer. We also feel that at 10 times magnification lens shake does not come into play for 95% of people.

• OBJECTIVE LENS SIZE: The second number in the formula (10x42) is the diameter of the objective front lens, measured in millimeters. The larger the objective lens, the more light that enters the binocular, and the brighter the image. Through our experience, we have found that an objective lens size (aperture) of 42mm is the ideal for safaris to allow for as bright an image as possible in low lighting conditions.

• FIELD OF VIEW: The side-to-side measurement of the circular viewing field or subject area. It is defined by the width in feet or metres of the area visible at 1 000 yards or meters. A wide-angle binocular features a wide field-of-view and is better for following action. Generally, the higher the magnification, the narrower the field-of-view.

• EYE RELIEF AND EYEGLASS-WEARERS: Eye relief is the distance binoculars can be held away from the eye and still present the full field-of-view. Extended or long eye relief reduces eyestrain and is ideal for eyeglass wearers. Binoculars also come with twist-up, pop-up, or soft rubber fold-down eye cups so eyeglass-wearers can see the entire field of view.
