    After testing many products, including my neighbor's Nikon's, I finally decided to take a chance on the Nikon 10X50 Trailblazer ATB Binoculars...a decision that's proved to be a solid choice, especially for the reasonable cost.

    Quite frankly, I'm amazed with the Trailblazers superb viewing,clarity and solid ATB construction. Magnification is a preference factor so I chose 10X magnification after trying a family members 8X.

    During day time use, or night for that matter. the lens focus a tight picture. From 5m in front of you to infinity the fine adjustment knob will focus in on what you need. The eye relief adjustment knobs are an excellent feature. Many Binoculars do not have this feature (It physically separates your eye from the diopter lens) ensuring proper eye relief at all times. This, when using your Binos for extended time will reduce eye and forehead fatigue.

    With a larger 50mm objective lens the benefits are numerous..
    1 more light entering the binoculars resulting in better imaging {any low light, dusk/dawn}
    2 the field of view {angle of view} increases for smoother viewing/scanning
    3 they generate a larger exit pupil for easier focusing and viewing for your eyes.

    The Nikon Trailblazer 10X50 are clear winners & easily 5 Stars for their stellar value

    I use these for travel and viewing performances. They are a bit large for travel. It's hard to get perspective on their size by the listing photo. I am most disappointed with the quality of the image. I am a professional photographer, and using only Nikon glass, I was amazed at the amount of red and blue fringe around the edges of objects and faces in these binoculars. It is quite distracting, and reminds me of wearing 3D galsses. (the old ones with a red and blue lens)

        Comments about Nikon 10x50 Trailblazer ATB Binocular (Black):

        The Nikon ATB binocular lacks sufficient width adjustment range to properly collimate the view. An additional 4 mm width adjustment should correct the problem. The optics were good when each side was viewed individually.

          I brought this Nikon binocular for bird watching.
          The Nikon 10x50 Trailblazer ATB Binocular are very sharp and easy to focus.
          These are amazing binoculars, great build quality for the price I paid.
          I am very pleased with both the lens clarity and focus.

          I read a lot of reviews and people kept saying great for the money, I say just great, don't know how they could be any better for function. This was my first purchase from B&H but it won't be my last. Best price on the net (I called a competitor who claimed to match the price but they said they couldn't because b&h price was too low). These are a little heavy but I knew that when I ordered them. not hard to handle but I'm a big guy so...
          don't think you will be sorry if you get these

              It was hard to estimate the size on the website, but I wanted Nikon, and the tech word (Twilight Factor = 22.36)for better low light gathering ability. They are full size, and obviously not as light as compact binoculars. The finish is great, and they have a solid feel to them. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the heft.

                  Comments about Nikon 10x50 Trailblazer ATB Binocular (Black):

                  These binos are all that I had hoped for in terms of their field of vision and viewing angle. I used them successfully for bird watching while on vacation in Maine recently and was pleased at how quickly they focused and how well I was able to track birds in flight. I even got a pretty good image of a lighthouse that is 6 miles off the coast. I've tried them in both bright sun and at dusk and was impressed at how well they worked in both types of light.

                  The lens caps can easily get separated from the strap and lost. I thought of wiring them on using bread bag ties to keep them in place.

                  These are a great pair for the price - certainly a major leap from my 8x21.

                          Sharp and great view. Very happy with the binocular. I wish they had attached the lens cover and eye piece cover somehow to the binocular body as it is easy to drop them and loose them.

                          like the idea that its waterproof.A little heavy but excellent quality.

                          In terms of quality for the price, these binoculars are great. The fact that they are waterproof/fogproof is great if you are on/near water or if you're in the rain. The only complaint I have is the quality of the diopter adjustment; it has a bit of a cheap, loose, plasticky feel.

                          I didn't feel comfortable taking expensive binoculars to woods and was little worried about performance of less expensive binoculars Trailblazer. But this is a great binocular. I was using Action earlier and felt that was a little bulky. Trailblazer is the perfect replacement.

                            Compact size, easy take it around. However, the lens covers are a bit disappointing. Very easy to lose them the way they have been designed

                            I use these for travel and viewing performances. They are a bit large for travel. It's hard to get perspective on their size by the listing photo. I am most disappointed with the quality of the image. I am a professional photographer, and using only Nikon glass, I was amazed at the amount of red and blue fringe around the edges of objects and faces in these binoculars. It is quite distracting, and reminds me of wearing 3D galsses. (the old ones with a red and blue lens)

                                These are great! We were on a rafting trip in Glen Canyon and my son spotted a condor flying high above us - it was a thrill for everyone on the raft to see the extinct bird.

                                They are light and easy to use.

                                My 14 year old son used them for a week and didn't lose the lense covers - great design.

                                      I received them yesterday and have not yet used them much. But compared to a pair of Celestron 10x42 Outlander Series I also bought for my dad, there is not much of a difference. And the Celestrons price was half of the Nikons.
                                      The Nikons are a little brighter, but not enough to pay $60 more. And the construction quality, its almost identical, as both are constructed in China. In any case, the Celestrons feel more solid. Also the lens cover on the Celestron are made of rubber and are attached to the binocular, on the Nikon they are not attached and made of plastic, very cheap.
                                      Like I said, I'm a little disappointed and I'm thinking about returning them. I've been a loyal Nikon camera costumer for years, but these binoculars are not what I expected from the brand, and I am not going to pay extra just because they have a Nikon badge. I know they are not the top of the line, but I expected at least a better construction.
