Nikon Prostaff 3S 10X42 Binoculars
About this deal
Are they the sharpest? No. Do they have no color fringing? No. But are they one of the best binoculars you can buy for the price? Wholeheartedly, yes I think so. Just big enough to zoom in on far-away subjects without becoming cumbersome, the DX 12x56 is the model of the line-up to get. I have experience with both the Action Extreme in the 12x50 size, and also had a PS 7 10x42, until I gave
A central folding mechanism allows us to adjust the binocular to best suit the distance between our own eyes, with a large ridged focus wheel making for easy and intuitive operation. While performance isn’t quite up there with Nikon’s own premium Monarch HG range in terms of clarity and sharpness, and we did notice the odd instance of purple fringing in contrast-y situations, it’s certainly ‘good enough’. In conclusion this is a versatile and well performing device offering very fair value for money. Something of a bargain, this pair of Celestron BaK-4 prism binoculars boasts 8x magnification and multi-coated optics to keep your view as clear as possible. This isn't the only size available – you can get these Outland X binoculars in other magnifications and sizes too. They're suitable for outdoor use by birders and wildlife watchers, thanks not only to said magnification but also to a sturdy polycarbonate build and waterproofing.He has also written for a wide range of publications including T3, BBC Focus, Empire, NME, Radio Times, MacWorld, Computer Active, What Digital Camera and Rough Guide books.

If you are wondering what is the difference between the Nikon Prostaff 3s series vs Nikon Prostaff 7s series, you have landed at the right place. The Nikon PROSTAFF 3S 10×42 is designed with a lightweight and compact profile, making it convenient to carry wherever you go. The cutting-edge roof prism design with mirror surfaces coated using silver alloy leads to a further reduced weight. Moreover, its construction lets you handle it comfortably over prolonged periods without experiencing fatigue. Since it has no tripod adaptability, these features are essential.
Seeking a pair of good value ‘bins’ for outdoor use when birding? California-based Celestron has a reputation for well-constructed yet affordable binoculars and this roof prism pair is no exception, in offering a wide field of view and being lightweight yet tough thanks to a magnesium alloy build, plus nitrogen filled to prevent fogging and waterproof with it. This roof prism pair of premium-feel binoculars delivers results that are truly outstanding, albeit for a price. That said they’re slim, lightweight and easy to use, while being fogproof and waterproof too, to depths of five metres for up to 10 minutes. Delivering the sort of sharpness that will satisfy the most demanding of wildlife watchers or birders – thanks in part to its ED glass construction – the 10x magnification wedded to 42mm objective lens provides good views into the twilight hours. Inevitably they’re slightly heavier and bigger than the closest 10x30 model in the same series, though. The lens caps are also of regrettable quality. Not a big thing, but neither is it understandable to crimp on quality for something as doable as caps. About the Company
The glass itself is made from lead and arsenic-free eco-friendly material. Another win for these binoculars is that they're waterproof and fogproof. The Nitrogen filled, O-Ring sealed design ascertains a clear view in all situations. This makes them especially equipped to endure those early-morning, rainy and winter outings.
