MINOX are probably best known for their spy cameras which have some of the the highest quality lenses in the world, but they also manufacture monoculars, spotting scopes, night vision devices, riflescopes and the range of Minox binoculars are some of the very best available.
MINOX is also a very innovative company and they produced the worlds first purpose built digital camera monitor and eyepiece that fits to the end of a spotting scope as an affordable way of getting into digiscoping, perfect for both birdwatching and wildlife viewing.
The MINOX binocular range is based around the highest quality optics and produced mostly for serious bird watchers, nature observation, marine use and as hunting binoculars. All MINOX binoculars feature a multi layer coating on all air to glass surfaces. This reduces any reflection and makes the image sharper and even more brilliant.
One of the first thing you notice about the new MINOX BL binocular is the very comfortable open bridge design, which I love as they not only help to keep the weight of the binocular to a minimum, but they are easier and far more secure to hold in one hand when you are not actually using them, but say walking through thick bush.
Like the standard open bridge BL models, all BL-HD binoculars feature a lightweight open bridge design, phase correction coatings on the roof prisms and are sealed and then filled with nitrogen to make them fogproof and are waterproof tested to a depth of 5m.
