I’ve been meaning to replace my broken set of binoculars for some time, and today was presented with an opportunity to do so. I was sent a web address for binoculars, a site called OpticsPlanet, that offers all kinds of optical products.
This is a comprehensive and in-depth website on all types of binoculars for all types of different applications, ranging from astronomy and sports binoculars, to hunting and night-vision. The product range includes major brand names in the field, including Canon, Nikon, Minolta and Pentax to name a few. On top of this, the website also offers a guide for those new to the world of binoculars, providing a quick 'How to Buy Binoculars Guide' that can give even the most lay person a good and accurate understanding of such terminologies as 8x25 and 10x42.
At first glance I had no idea what these numbers mean; now I do.Coupled with this basic binoculars tutorial, is a binoculars best sellers and staff picks section, perfect for those that are unsure of what to buy, and what binocular suits which application. With spring now upon us, and the opportunity of hiking and recreation in our spare time, there is more than enough reason why these devices will come in handy.
This site is fantastic for the serious adventurer, and a great stop for high quality optical products. There are some members of the family who just seem to have everything. Maybe they'll receive a pair of brand new binoculars in their stocking this year?
