In terms of their overall capabilities and performance, these are very similar to the standard Steiner Safari UltraSharp 8x30 binoculars. However, the limited edition Adventure models also come supplied with a set of special adhesive overlays that allow you to customise them to your particular tastes. You may choose to keep things simple and maintain the classic look, or you may wish to add a little flair with the wild leopard pattern or camouflage them with the black & white stripes of a zebra.
The 8x30 configuration delivers a reasonably large 3.75mm exit pupil and so whilst they might not quite compete against a full-sized 8x42mm binocular in terms of their low light performance, they will hold their own and you have the added bonus of having a much smaller, more lightweight instrument to pack and carry about.
It is for this and a number of other reasons that these make an excellent choice for travel, wildlife safaris and birding holidays.
The moderate 8x power helps these maintain a wide field of view which really helps you to quickly locate and then follow all of the action, even in the case of fast and often erratic moving birds.
Add to the wide view, Steiner’s Sports-Auto-Focus Plus hybrid system makes certain that you never miss out on the action whilst having to adjust the focus. This is because everything from about 20 meters away to infinity remains in perfect focus. Should you need to focus on nearer objects then you can use the centrally located focus wheel, which is great news for those who also like to observe things like butterflies at very close range.
