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.
I saw this pair of binoculars in Amazon Singapore for S$89. This bino sells for more than US$200 in Amazon US so to me it was a steal. What makes this bino special is that it comes with a body harness and pouch for you to carry the binos hands-free while trekking or hiking. I have a Nikon Monarch 5 8x42 binos so I will compare the Diamondback with the Monarch 5.
Weight: The Diamondback is heavier than the Monarch Weather Resistant: Both binos are weather resistant Optical Quality: The Nikon Monarch beats the Diamondback with a brighter and clearer image.
However, for S$89, I think the DIamondback is a steal and great value. If you are a birdwatcher on a budget the Diamondback should be on your list i.e. if it is still listed as $89.
Buena calidad óptica y buen acabado. Son muy compactos, de aspecto robusto y bonita estética. Tengo que decir como nota negativa que están fabricados en China, aunque supongo que Vortex tendrá un buen control de calidad, puesto que garantiza sus productos de por vida.
Non ho dato il punteggio massimo perche' non ho avuto sinora modo di confrontarlo con altri prodotti della stessa fascia. luminosita' e nitidezza piu' che buoni, effetti ombra sui lati sporadici o quasi inesistenti. Lo consiglio
I like the 10x50 binoculars because of their very clear image quality, and the chest carrier with straps, included, are comfortable to carry in the field. I purchased a tripod adapter (also Vortex) that fits a camera/video camera tripod which has a camera/binocular pad with a screw attachment for the binocular pad. Instruction as on the Amazon website. A video is available on YouTube. Very simple and easy to use. Better than the 42 mm objective lens, with superior light gathering and wider field of view.
Overall, great set of optics that include a bino harness/case and straps. It’s unfortunate that vortex does work on a better integration of these two. The bino harness/case attaches with buckle clips where as the ordinary strap is attached with double loop cinch ( not sure what it’s actually called). It would be nice if vortex had the same side buckles on both. I’m ordering some to make a DIY version.
