Binoculars for birdwatching
Binoculars for birdwatching
Brightness of image and colour balance are 2 of the most important factors when choosing a pair of Binoculars for Birdwatching.
We would highly recommend that you choose an 8x magnification or 10x maximum with a 40mm or 42mm front or objective lens size. This will give the best combination of brightness and clarity with a steady view.
The more that you pay,the better the quality of build and optics will be, provided that you buy from a specialist centre like SBTC. (Beware! there are a lot of Binoculars on sale that are not worth the money that they are being offered at! Never buy from Camera shops or Newspaper articles)
Do bear in mind though that if the price of a pair of Binoculars doubles, the quality is not necessarily double! there is a percentage increase in quality and it is down to what you justify spending for that increase in quality.
You may have a budget in mind but the main considerations are,how much use they are going to get over the years
and the style and weight that you are comfortable carrying around all day.
Please do not hesitate to call us on 01709 586086 if you need any help making your choice.
We have listed here some of our most popular choices in Birdwatching Binoculars as a guide but please refer to main sections for a much wider listing.
Please note that an 8x40/8x42 or a 10x40/10x42 would be the most suitable for Birdwatching when choosing from below.
