Kaps 8x42 Details

This all-round 8x42 Kaps binoculars are a perfect companion in wildlife for hunters, bird watchers and other enthusiasts. With incredibly bright optical features due to multi-layers of high quality coatings, Bak4 prisms and phase correction, these binoculars also offer very colorful and contrast-rich images free of major distortions such as chromatic aberration. These model has also wider field of view (126m) that also helps you in dynamic situations, when you tend to follow fast moving objects a lot. The 2 meter minimal focusing distance isn’t bad either for up-close observations. These binoculars are enclosed in rubber armoring that protects them against impacts and corrosion and tight seals that makes them impervious to water and dust. Internal fogging will never occur with these binoculars since they are nitrogen filled and allows you to use them during dawn and dusk temperature fluctuations without any disruption. Kaps 8x42 can be fixed on a tripod to give you steadier images but won’t be that necessary since they are less powerful due to 8x magnification that is ideal for observations in densely wooded areas. This model is equipped with incredibly grippy central focus wheel and right-eye diopter and multi-positioned eyecups suitable even for glass wearers.


Short Description of Kaps Binoculars

Kaps company offers series of mid-priced entry-level binoculars with four models with incredible optical performance at affordable price for bird watchers, hunters and are also suitable for astronomy applications. Great ergonomics is the result of lightweight straight-through design and a large grippy central focus knob. The rubber armoring also helps with non-slip grip and protects these binoculars against impacts and abrasions. Kaps binoculars are filled with nitrogen gas to eliminate internal condensation and tight seals to make construction impervious to water and other particles. This is the reason you can take them with you on rainy days and glass condensation will never occur when facing temperature fluctuations at dusk and dawn. Kaps binoculars are equipped with multi-positioned eyecups that are convenient for both – those who wear glasses and those who don’t.
