If hiking, hunting, tracking, birdwatching or observing wildlife and nature of any kind is your interest, the Minox HG 8x33 BR Waterproof Binocular offers the ideal compact, lightweight entry into the top of the range Minox binocular. 8x magnification, a lens diameter of 33 millimeters, a field of view of 7,5 degrees (394,62 ft / 1000 yds) as well as a close focusing distance of less than 2 metres are the main features of the Minox 8x33 Waterproof Binoculars 62188.
An essential mark of quality in binoculars is the overall quality of light transmission. Minox engineers have developed an innovative M*-coating of the lenses which consists of up to 21 different layers on the glass surface to modify the various wave lengths of the visible light. This increases the light transmission in Minox 8x33 Binoculars up to a very impressive 92 percent while at the same time it improves brightness, contrast, details and colour rendering significantly.
Another major benefit of the Minox HG 8x33mm BR Waterproof Binocular is an improved optical formula. Aspheric lenses enhance the contrast and sharpness of the image from the centre to the edges. At the same time all of this has enabled the number of lenses in the optical system of Minox High Grade 8x33 Binoculars 62188 to be reduced. To ensure a very reliable and durable protection against internal corrosion and fogging, the Minox 8x33 Waterproof Binoculars 62188 are filled with state-of-the-art Argon gas.
Another key milestone of the Minox HG 8x 33 BR Water proof Binocular is mirroring the roof prisms with MinoBright technology. This silver-baring coating guarantees up to a 99,9 percent improved efficiency of the reflection at the mirror surface. This is yet another improvement of the light transmission within the overall optical system of the Minox High Grade Binoculars. The high-tech optical glass of these Waterproof Binoculars is ?Made in Germany? by the Mainz based SCHOTT AG, a subsidiary of the Carl-Zeiss-Stifung, which was founded by Ernst Abbe.
The Fast-Close-Focus (FCF), developed and patented by Minox needs just one full turn of the focusing knob to adjust the Minox HG 8x33 BR Water proof Binoculars from close focus to infinite. This one turn allows fast close focusing in Minox Waterproof Binoculars and more precise focusing for longer distances. Like the other binoculars in the series, the Minox HG 8x33 Waterproof Binocular can be used as a reliable rangefinder for medium distances. This Binoculars Minox feature is clearly marked as a scale on the central focusing wheel.
The Minox HG 8x33 mm BR Waterproof Binoculars sleek body with its fully protective rubber armouring was designed by Volkswagen-Design specifically with feel and absolute comfort in use in mind. By using magnesium, which is increasingly used in aircraft construction, the weight of this full-featured top quality german binocular has been considerably reduced.
There are four click-stops of the binoculars rubber eyecups to different eye-relief settings which for people who are wearing spectacles is an advantage. The design of the large metal focusing wheel in Minox HG 8 x33 Binoculars is both attractive and functional. Designed and equipped with a cross-knurl, like the lockable dioptre-adjustment, it provides a very good grip.
