The MINOX MD50 is also comparatively new to the scene, although it takes up the price range previously occupied by Kowa’s 50mm spotter that appears to have been discontinued. Before these models from Vortex and Minox showed up, selecting a compact spotter was a pretty straightforward affair: if you wanted the best one available, you had to pony up the cash for Nikon’s smallest Fieldscope.

Automotive sector meets optics: Volkswagen Design creates MINOX binoculars with digital compass

With the model BN 7x50 DC of the new NAUTIK Line MINOX has set a new milestone in the development of innovative and revolutionary products: the MINOX BN 7x50 DC is fitted with the latest state-of-the-art technology and offers water-sports enthusiasts many important features such as a digital compass, barometer, stopwatch, tilt function altimeter and temperature display.

The biggest challenge in the design of the new BN 7x50 DC was the integration of the digital compass in the binocular body. A task that the competent Volkswagen Design Team took in their stride and created a binocular body that stands out with a superb ergonomic and functional design.

MINOX and Volkswagen Design can look back on a longstanding cooperation. The engineers and developers of the Wetzlar-based optics manufacturers MINOX, and the creative team at Volkswagen have been working together for fifteen years already. The presentation of many renowned design awards, including the Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany – the most prominent award in Germany – underscores the successful cooperation of these two Germany companies. Both Volkswagen and MINOX can boast a longstanding tradition and decades of experience. MINOX products offer highest quality standards, maximum precision, solidity and longevity.

 “The identity and tradition of the brand MINOX features a very strong  design component. On this basis we develop a design concept that is geared to refine and provide new interpretations of these values. The result will naturally always coincide with the goals and the quality standards of Volkswagen Design“, commented head designer Klaus Bischoff.

The new MINOX BN 7x50 DC also has a good chance of receiving one of the coveted German design awards.

Night Vision Device in Pocket Format: MINOX NVD mini featuring innovative digital technology

MINOX has long made a name for itself as a manufacturer of innovative binoculars and opto-electronic equipment. The optics specialists from Wetzlar are now presenting another reliable and extremely compact companion for all outdoor activities – the MINOX NVD mini  – one of the smallest night vision devices in the world. For orientation purposes in unfamiliar surroundings this very compact night vision device is an absolute must for your safety!

Night vision devices are needed when even the most powerful binoculars with high twilight factor reach their optical limits. Using digital infrared technology they amplify the available residual light, such as light frequencies from the brightness of stars or horizon radiation that are not perceived by the human eye. With the new MINOX NVD the infrared-sensitive CMOS sensor picks up the infrared radiation and reproduces the image on the monitor in the viewfinder. Contrary to conventional tube night vision devices it is not sensitive to bright light sources - thanks to its digital technology - and can also be used in daylight, if required. The optical system provides 2 times magnification and the 16 powerful infrared LEDs are suitable for use in total darkness at a range of 60 m. With this innovative digital technology the new MINOX NVD mini is shock and impact resistant.
 
Compact dimensions of just 14.2 x 4.9 cm mean that the MINOX NVD mini is suitable for use anywhere. The ergonomic design allows a straightforward, simple operation and makes this outstanding night-vision device the perfect companion for all outdoor activities.

The scope of delivery includes a case and a charging cable. The NVD mini is now available from stockists.
