Minox BV 8x25 and BV 10x25: new Compact Binoculars with comfort bridge

Two new binoculars with comfort bridge from Minox: the German optics specialist Company has just introduced its BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 Compact Binoculars to complement its tried and tested BV binoculars line. The two new models are designed for universal application  and offer an excellent grip thanks to their non-slip rubber armoring, making them perfect for nature observations or while hunting.

The open bridge design of the BV binoculars allow safe, one-handed operation and thus ensures more freedom of movement, even in extreme conditions. Light and robust in design, with their extremely sturdy aluminum body that ensures reliable functioning of all optical systems and precision mechanics on the inside, the BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 are extremely compact and handy, and are equipped with state-of-the-art optical systems. 

Minox: innovation and technology

The German optics specialist Company has just introduced its BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 Compact Binoculars to complement its BV binoculars line.

The multi-coated lenses provide high light transmission and a natural colour rendition to produce an extraordinary viewing experience: the phase corrected roof prisms present the viewer with an image offering very good detail reproduction and exceptional contrast, also in poor light conditions. The shock-absorbing rubber armor protects the precision. An innovative sealing technology protects the interior elements from the penetration of dust and of water down to a depth of 5 meters. 

Nitrogen filling of the binoculars ensures permanent protection against corrosion and prevents fogging of the glass surfaces on the inside, even with severe and sudden temperature fluctuations.  This makes the BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 suitable for extreme wind and weather conditions. They also feature a tripod socket.

To match the needs of eyeglass wearers, the rotating rubber eyecups can be adjusted using the click-stops to conveniently attain a perfect eye distance, and provide the user with a comfortable field of view without vignetting. A carrying strap and ever-ready case are included in the scope of delivery. 

Priced in the 150-200 Euro range (around 175-235 US dollars), with their interesting price/ performance ratio the BV 8x25 and BV 10x25 binoculars are also a good choice for those looking for a high-quality, yet still affordable gift.
