When choosing binoculars, the first characteristic to understand is the combination of these two numbers that are often written on them. The numbers 8X25 you can often read on children and adult binoculars, such as Fix Kids Binoculars 8x25, refers to the magnification factor and the diameter (aperture) of the lenses.
This very effective system is often used on small binoculars such as Fix Binoculars 10x25.
The lack of control wheel and mobile parts makes these binoculars very solid over time. Easy to use, they are ideal for family hikes with kids.
For better accuracy, you can choose adjustable binoculars that feature
This adjustment is particularly useful to observe small animals at a short distance.
There are two types of binocular constructions:
If you are used to long hikes over one, or even several days, you know how important it can be to decrease the weight of your backpack by 100 or 200 grams. So you need to find binoculars that provide the right compromise between your desire for observation and your need to reduce your load. With the Fix Focus 8x25 or 10x25 binoculars, you opt for a very low weight: 185 g and 212 g respectively. If you care less about the weight, and favour the accuracy of your observations, or if you do shorter hikes, opt for 10x32 or 12x32 binoculars with adjustment. Their weight approximates 300 g, but the control wheel makes for more detailed observation. You should also consider the transport of your binoculars.
Keep them at hand to be react immediately when an animal appears. A lanyard and a case will help you walk with your binoculars unhampered and without having to store them in your backpack every time! You probably got it, you need to choose your binoculars based on your usual practice.
To learn or teach your kids how to observe the surrounding wildlife, start with an easy-to-use, very lightweight Fix Focus model. If you want accuracy and visual comfort, choose a bigger model with an adjustment wheel. now, you just need to wait patiently for your first "encounters"!!
It is quite possible to use binoculars when you wear prescription glasses. But it may be difficult to position the eye comfortably in the binoculars eyecups.
However, there are retractable or sliding eyecups, allowing spectacle wearers to put their eyes at an appropriate distance for proper observation.
