Swarovski are not only the market leaders in high-end safari optics but, in launching the new range of CL Companion Binoculars, Swarovski have proven that they are able to look over their shoulder and listen to what the market has to say. The demand for a high-end compact pair of Swarovskis has always existed, especially with the rising price of the SLC and EL range. While Swarovski are used to receiving praise from avid birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts, we feel that, after testing the CLs, we too must congratulate them on these fantastic binoculars

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 under the information tab for “Setting the Dioptre for your Binoculars”
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.

About product
Swarovski CL Companion 10x30 Binoculars (Sand Brown) – Further Information:

⊙ 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.

• 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.
