Made with the hunter in mind, this Realtree version is a great choice for anyone operating in forest or wooded areas and who needs to remain out of sight. Whilst the standard rubber armour helps with sound muffling and reducing light reflections, the RealTree print takes the level of camouflage to a whole new level.
This pattern is specifically designed to work in a range of environments and different seasons, but is especially effective during early autumn, right through winter and then onto spring when you get the most variation in leaf colours.
The 10x50 arrangement is a good choice for wildlife enthusiasts and hunters who a good balance between low light performance, field of view and and image detail.
Thes binocular also have a tripod adapter mount which is especially useful for the steadiest views from a platform or hide.
With a choice of 7x, 10x, 12x, 16x or 20x powers the 50mm Bushnell PowerView porro prism series has you covered in just about any situation where you require an affordable binocular that will deliver a bright image in relation to your chosen magnification.
A distinctive feature is Bushnell's InstaFocus lever. Rather than the traditional focus wheel, you can very quickly adjust the focus by rocking the lever. Apart from improving focusing speed, this design also helps to make focusing easier when wearing thick winter gloves.
All models also have fold-down rubber eyecups and a rubber armour exterior that adds a layer of protection increases grip and improves camouflage.
Multi-coated, these full-sized PowerView binoculars have multiple anti-reflection coatings applied to the outermost lenses that increase light capture and transmission. Whilst this is good and to be expected at this price level, it is important to note that more expensive instruments like the Bushnell Legacy WP Binoculars are Fully Multi-coated meaning that all lens elements throughout the optical pathway are treated for an even brighter view.
Bushnell uses BK-7 glass for the Porro Prisms. These have an advantage over roof prisms because the design naturally reflects 100% of the light and thus they do not require expensive mirror coatings to perform at the same level. Thus at this low price point, Porro prisms binoculars like these will usually outperform equivalent roof prism models as they will use cheaper mirror coatings to keep production costs down.
Bushnell PowerView binoculars are boxed with a soft carry case that includes its own carry strap, objective and ocular lens covers, neck strap and cleaning cloth.
Made in China, Bushnell present these binoculars with an impressive 10 year warranty.
