About this deal

once we have a clear night I'll put them on a tripod to do some viewing of the Pleiades, the moon and Venus. I like the attention to detail in that the padded section that hangs around your neck is slightly curved to ensure that it hangs more naturally.

This ingenious design allows for extremely quick and easy binocular access in the field as you can use your binoculars without having to completely remove them. Because the armor is so hard, it is not as tactile as some binoculars I have reviewed, but because it has a rough design cut into the armour where you hold them, they are as "grippy" as any out there, even in damp or wet conditions. They air inside the body has also been replaced with dry nitrogen gas that prevents the internal optics from fogging up which can happen when you get rapid temperature changes.There is a marking on the barrel and one on the ring so that you can line up the neutral diopter setting, but no others. com's recommendation as the budget pick so was happily surprised by the quality of the build, materials and optics. The Carson XM Series Binoculars also feature a rubberized armor coating and the body is nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed making them waterproof and fogproof.

Carson provides a limited lifetime warranty for this binocular, which means that it is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship and Carson will either repair or replace any part or assembly of parts found to be defective. I'm only using these recreationally and with my untrained eye, I find the images sharp, crisp and clear.This rubber armour also has a number of another benefits, including making the device less reflective and will also dampen down any sounds, if say your watch or ring strikes against the barrel - these are important features if you want to remain unnoticed when observing timid birds and other wildlife.

The field of view for these Carson 10x42 3D binoculars is 105m at 100m / 314ft at 1000 yards (6°) - which, for a binocular with a 10x magnification is well above average, but it must be said does fall a little short of some the very best 10x binoculars. Carson don't state what the frame of these TD-042ED's is made from, which is a shame as I do wonder what they used to make them so light. Also have a great warranty, lifetime "No Fault" so if you drop them and break them company will repair or replace for nominal fee, and if some defect shows up, repair/replace for free.

Below is a table comparing some of the main features and specifications of this Carson 10x42 3D Binocular with a selection of other full size roof prism binoculars with magnifications of 10x - The Kowa SV 10x42, the Minox 10x42 BV's, the Swarovski 10x42 EL's and the Steiner 10x42 SkyHawk binoculars. But no matter how much light your binoculars gather, it is no good if that light is not passed onto your eyes ( transmittance) and this is where it is important to know that not all 10x42 binoculars are created equal as the performance of a pair of optics in poor light depends hugely on the quality of the glass and optical coatings and not just the exit pupil and twilight factor formula.

What the table above does highlight is the fact that they are extremely light weight and compact for a binocular with 42mm objective lenses. I am fortunate in that I have a high end pair of binoculars but I wanted a low budget pair for all around use and I am just floored when I use these.All 3D Series binoculars are of a roof prism design featuring high quality components and optics including fully multi-coated optical elements and Phase corrected BaK-4 prisms that give a sharp and high-contrast image over the full field of view.

These and high reflective coatings on the prisms can make a really big difference on the brightness of the image produced. These roof prism binoculars come in 5 different configurations ranging from the large 12x50 VP Series binoculars to a compact 10x25 model.
