Offering great value for money, these Vortex 10x42 binoculars are the latest in their class, providing HD clarity, improved light transmission, and rugged strength for great game-viewing on safari.

If we had to name our top safari essential, it would have to be a pair of safari binoculars - and these HD 10x42 binoculars by Vortex are a superb choice. The optimised glass elements of these binoculars provide high-resolution images with exceptional colour fidelity, sharpness, and colour fidelity for game-viewing and bird-watching. They are also fully multi-coated with anti-reflective coatings for enhanced light transmission - the perfect tool for observing a distant sighting or noting detail on any subject.

An essential tool for safaris and outdoor adventures, you want your binoculars to be resilient. Housed in a rubber armour, the Vortex Crossfire HD 10x42 are robust and comfortable, with the rubber making for non-slip, easy-grip handling. Sealed with O-rings, the optics are protected from dust and water and the nitrogen gas purging offers added waterproofing and fog-proofing. Don't let misted-up binos get in the way of your game-viewing as the temperature rises on early morning game drives.

These Vortex binoculars are tripod adaptable, which means you can enjoy perfectly steady images from a tripod or car mount. This is a handy feature on self-drives and game drives alike.

Further adding to the value of these HD binoculars, this edition comes in a safari-coloured GlassPak binocular case with one-size-fits-all harness. This can be tethered to your binoculars to prevent accidental drops and for added peace of mind. Keep your binoculars right on hand knowing that they are protected too.

Vortex Crossfire 10x42 HD Binoculars – 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.
