Simmons ProSport Binoculars Review
I’ve been an avid birdie for almost 10 years and have learnt a lot. I’ve learnt to have patience and calmness of body and mind. Bird-watching is a form of Yoga, it brings us closer to nature and makes us a calm person. Because of my bird-watching hobby I came across binoculars. Initially, I didn’t know a thing about them, their specifications and importance of their features. But now I completely understand the importance of a good bifocal. While searching for a new pair of binoculars I stumbled upon ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars which had some excellent features for its users. They were:
High Quality Optics
The ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars come in two variants, viz. 10×42 mm and 12×50 mm. The numbers here mean that the binoculars have a magnification or zooming capacity of 10x and 12x along with an objective lens of 42 mm and 50 mm diameters respectively. The magnification depicts that the binocular can see the object 10 and 12 times closer than it actually appears to the naked eye. This power of magnification is sufficient for observing birds, stadium sports, etc.
The ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars are black colored which makes it look sleek and stylish. The binoculars are crafted with utmost care and precision to bring out the best optical instruments. The lorgnette are equipped with BaK-4 prisms which provide high quality viewing and an efficient experience. The objective lens of the binoculars is multi-coated for better light transmission and high quality images. The bifocals come with black colored rubber armor housing for protection. The lorgnette are also water and fog proof.
The ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars are covered with rubber armoring. The pince-nez being waterproof can be used in wet conditions, which make it prone to slips but the rubber armoring prevents such a mishap by providing a firm non- slip grip. The rubber armoring also provides a stylish look to the binoculars. It makes viewing comfortable and prevents it from scratches which might come from the use of eyeglasses. The rubber armor also absorbs shocks and keeps the binocular stable for sharp and clear images.
Water and Fog Proof
The ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars are designed for use in very weather and environmental condition. Many a times we are unable to take the bifocals out because of the fear of it getting spoilt in rains or by dust. But in case of these binoculars a user does not need to worry about it as they are water and fog proof. The nitrogen purged lorgnette are dust, debris water and fog proof. They are sealed so precisely that even the optics won’t be affected by internal fog. The feature of water and fog proof is the highlight of this binocular.
The ProSport Roof- Prism Waterproof/ Fog- proof Binoculars are made to adjust to the need of the users. There are many of us who cannot see clearly without our eyeglasses on, so for them there are adjustable eye cups. The eye cups can be twisted upwards for hindrance free viewing. The eye cups are covered with black colored rubber armor to prevent the lenses from getting any scratches while the binoculars are used with eyeglasses on.
