Observe nature's glorious, breathtaking splendor, zoom into that rare butterfly or catch the kind of spectacular footy marks that you never wish to just hear about with a pair of Zeiss binoculars in hand. Binoculars and monoculars are portable optical instruments that magnify distant objects so that you can see them clearly, comfortably and, sometimes, more safely than if you had to get up close. German manufacturer Zeiss sets the trend globally with technologically advanced optics and optoelectronics that make a noticeable difference.Maximum Magnification
Magnification on both the unbranded binoculars and the branded versions, such as the Zeiss models, refers to how much bigger the binoculars can make the image appear. Binoculars with an 8x magnification make objects appear eight times larger than they would with the naked eye, while a 10x to 14x magnification gives you a chance to enjoy critical details up close.Features
Consider fog-proof, nitrogen-filled binoculars for humid environments as they feature lenses that remain clear despite the weather. On the other hand, drops of water or even grease easily slide off water-resistant binoculars on your outdoor treks, while waterproof binoculars are sealed tight to prevent dust and water from getting inside them, even when you dive to the recommended depth underwater.Lens Coating
Lenses are usually coated to reduce glare and reflections for clearer images. For example, the fully-coated Zeiss binoculars has a single layer of coating on all its surfaces, while the fully multi-coated lenses boast multiple layers on all surfaces for bright, crystal-clear images.Application
Zeiss binoculars are designed to enhance your chosen activity. Those for birding are usually compact and lightweight with image stabilisation and long-hour eye relief, while the hiking and trekking binoculars focus fast on your subject and have excellent visibility for both near and far distances. On the other hand, travel and lifestyle binoculars give you clear, sharp images and are robust enough to last through a fall.
