Three in one: MINOX sets the mark once again with its variable power binoculars
The BD 8-14x40 BR ED excels as a technical innovation and an affordable all-round solution
Three in one - with the infinitely variable eyepiece the 8-14x40 combines three different binocular types in one tool. This has created an affordable all-round solution boasting top-of-the-range technology. With these variable power binoculars the user can first get an idea of what is going on with 8x magnification and a wide field of view, before moving in on specific individual details in fractions of a second, using up to 14x magnification and rendering highly detailed images in pin-sharp definition right into the edges.
The features of the 8-14x40 are clear and straightforward. A sturdy and compact metal body - which is dust and waterproof - houses the precision mechanics used to accurately adjust the inside focusing. The apochromatically corrected lens of high quality fluoride ED glass minimizes color fringes and guarantees an outstanding optical performance delivering images rich in detail, with neutral color rendition and high contrast, especially when using high magnification.
Like all MINOX binoculars the BD 8-14x40 BR ED also has a multiplayer coating on all air/glass surfaces. This reduces any reflection and makes the image even more brilliant. The prisms are coated with a phase correction layer which enhances the contrast, even in difficult light conditions, therefore increasing the twilight factor of these new variable power binoculars.
A filling of argon gas prevents corrosion and fogging of the glass, also under extreme temperature fluctuations. People wearing glasses will value the rotating rubber eyecups which can be engaged in different stages – yet another detailed feature, like the wide and comfortable Neoprene strap. The scope of delivery also includes an exclusive leather case.
