        Not just for closeUp

        By Meter man

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Excellent value
        • Good range of view
        • Perfect Size For Pocket

        Cons

        • Needs More Light To Focus

        Best Uses

        • Reading Meters

        Comments about Carson 7x18 CloseUp Monocular:

        Even though this monocular is great at close distances it works great at 10'-15' in between fence boards.
        I read gas and electric meters for a local utility and the 10x is hard to steady when you just walked up a steep hill or in the middle of a 16 mile walk. The Carson 7x is small and easy to focus and not to hard to steady.
        The only downfall would be focusing at low light levels.

          Comments about Carson 7x18 CloseUp Monocular:

          use daily to see number of bus 6 or more blocks away allowing more time to pick up packages and move into position for boarding calmly

          can see clear details of objects on the ground without bending over

          close up can see threads of cloth and ones own skin surface

          able to see everything in home magnified...details on walls, ceiling, floor...can see the tiny dots of the TV screen

          Very practicle and also fun to explore the environmentl

          No complaints yet. The pouch fits on my belt. Velcro easy to open and seems secure at this time. Pouch material may be a little thin for long term wear over time. But one can always get another pouch. Great size fits in hand, easy to change focus...I am very impressed. The monocular feels stable in construction.
