Vortex CF-4304 overview

  • 1Description

The green and black 12x50 Crossfire Roof Prism Binocular from Vortex combines fully multi-coated optics, which deliver bright and clear images, with a durable and comfortable-to-hold body. With a 12x magnification and 50mm objectives, you obtain higher-than-average magnification and a light-gathering capacity that allow you to make long-range, low-light observations as well as enjoy stargazing. While the 5.2° angular field of view and the enhanced depth of focus will help you locate your targets, the center wheel allows for fast focusing. In addition to observing distant scenes, birds, and game, the minimum focus of 9.8' allows you to study in detail close targets like animal footprints, marks, or landscape features without moving away from your subject. The binocular also features a 4.1mm exit pupil, a 15mm eye relief, and a 60-76mm interpupillary adjustment range.

To offer durability and comfort, the Crossfire 12x50 has a smooth green and black rubber armor covering that provides external protection and a secure non-slip grip. The housing is O-ring sealed waterproof and nitrogen-purged fogproof, which shield the binocular from a variety of weather conditions and effects of a rapidly changing temperature. To ensure a non-slip grip during focusing even while wearing gloves or in bad weather, the center focus knob is wide and textured. The binocular is mountable on a tripod with an optional adapter and has rubber twist-up eyecaps. Also included are a rainguard, tethered lens covers, a neck strap, and a soft carry case.

Vortex CF-4304 reviews

12x50 Crossfire Roof Prism Binocular is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No complaints I picked these up for $ shipped to my door for my Elk hunt. And for the price, I can not complain. the warranty was the biggest reason for purchasing these. I can leave these with my kids, and not worry if they get broken. I had no problems glassing during the day. I was able to use these during first light and last light well. Eye relief was great, and smooth adjustable cups for eye relief was perfect. I defiantly see color inaccuracies during first and last light on animals at 1000+ yards. But the clarity was good enough to know what kind of game I was seeing. These binocs are on the heavy side, but I did not pay a bucket load of money for these, so I can not expect light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I'm a wildlife photographer looking for Golden Eagles and Peregrin Falcons. The quality and detail with good light it's amazing, my friends have some "high end" binoculars (different brands) and at the same optics (12x50) Vortex deliver!! Low weight and size also a big plus, after a couple of hours you arms don't feel the load. The only con: the strap around your neck don't have an "easy off" release method, you need to remove the whole deal for your friends to use it, but for me it's not big deal. I don't need to use them in really low light conditions so this model is the one to got in that case!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Binoculars!! Fantastic product. These were one of my first Vortex products I owned. Use them on every hunt I go on. Glass clarity and low light is unmatched at this price point. I wear corrective lenses and have always had a bit of trouble finding a pair of binoculars that are comfortable and usable with or without glasses, and these things deliver. I've been extremely happy with these binoculars, I know you will be too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing optic! I got a pair of the 12×50 for Christmas and am blown away with the clarity and durability. Ive never had a pair of binos be this good at this price range. I have compared higher priced ones to these and couldn't tell a difference. If you looking for a very good pair of binoculars without paying an arm and a leg i would highly suggest a pair of vortex binos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable and Reliable I bought the Crossfire 12x50 binoculars when they first came out. It's great to have a binocular so bright of optics and dependable in construction that they become a tool for hunting. You always know they will do what you ask of them without any problems at any time. They always see what I need to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great binoculars I bought these binoculars over a year ago for archery season. The price was hard to turn down. I absolutely love them, crystal clear, don't fog up, and they are great for wooded areas as well as scoping fields. I went out a few weeks later and bought a second pair for my father who also loves them!

Star 4- they are great in low light condition. Star 5- Price is very affordable! ---There are way too many great features in which I love!! BUY NOW!!!
