The robust lightweights with Comfort Bridge: The new MINOX BL line now available in HD!

MINOX announces further enhancements of its BL range of binoculars at IWA 2013.  Developments include HD glass, aesthetic and design enhancements. The open-bridge format of the BL line enables secure, one-handed operation and firm grip even in extreme conditions.

The MINOX BL line are characterised by exceptionally low weight (only 650 g / BL 8x33). The robust housing is rubber coated and ergonomically designed.  New BL models are guaranteed to be waterproof to a depth of 5 meters. Nitrogen gas purging prevents fogging in temperature fluctuations.

The powerful optical systems comprise multi-coated lenses that guarantee the highest optical performance and neutral colour rendition of the subject in view. The lenses are also equipped with an innovative HD glass with anomalous partial dispersion, ensuring further improved colour correction and a higher light transmission. The user enjoys a better image with perfect detail rendition and high contrast even in poor light conditions.

Twist-type retractable rubber eyecups with individual click stops are provided on all models; for spectacle users, extendible exit pupil eye-pieces ensure that the complete field of vision remains without any shadowing effects.

The new BL HD binoculars are finished by hand and subjected to rigorous quality control inspections before leaving the main factory in Wetzlar / Germany.

MINOX offers all customers a special Comfort Service. After simple registration, customers benefit from extended protection against all manufacturing and functional defects. From the day of registration the MINOX Comfort Service will be valid for 30 years.
