To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love these binoculars! We purchased them for birding and spotting wildlife based on the reviews and they are better than expected! Wonderful clarity and brightness, light weight, and great value! Perfect for packing out on nature walks and we highly recommend to other nature enthusiasts!
I like the style, clarity, sharpness and brightness of these binocs. The problem with them is shakiness. They are hard to hold still without shaking so it is hard to see objects I am training them on. I would like to mount them to a tripod, but there is no mounting hole so I would have to buy a mounting connector. This is hard to do as these are bridge binocs. No center arm that is visible. I haven't found a way to mount them.
I bought a supposedly good pair of birding binoculars for my husband and they were no good. So I did more research. I found a birding blog and they had a resent article on the best birding binoculars, so these got top ratings under two hundred dollars. My husband loves them. They work very well. Great price. $101.00
Wow. I'm going to give away my cheap binoculars. These are really cool. The birds at my feeder--just about 10 feet away--now look like they're in first-rate nature photographs: bright, enlarged, detailed. Problem is, now I can also vividly see the streaks of bird droppings on the feeders. In other words, these are really good for close-up subjects, but they're great for distance too. I should've sprung for these a while ago.
