The 8x50 HD Profinder Binocular from Snypex combines high definition glass optics and phase corrected BAK4 Roof prisms to deliver bright and clear images with an extended angle of view. The optical elements are fully multicoated to provide high transmission of light and feature a special coating that repels water from optical surfaces. With an 8x magnification and 50mm objectives, you obtain an optimal but notable magnification, insignificant image jitter due to unsteady hands, and bright images in even in low lighting conditions like dusk or dawn. You can easily spot your targets with a wide 6.8° angular field of view and quickly bring them into focus with a large center wheel. In addition to observing distant scenes, birds and game, the minimum focus of 3.9' allows you to study in detail close objects like animal footprints, marks or landscape features. The binocular also features a 6.25mm exit pupil, a 15mm eye relief, as well as interpupillary and diopter adjustments.

The binocular also features a lightweight and durable magnesium/aluminum-alloy body with a lightly contoured rubber armoring that provides both external protection and a secure non-slip grip. With the housing that is O-ring sealed waterproof submersible to 3', you can use it in a wide range of outdoor activities including boating and water rafting. It is also nitrogen filled fogproof and will not fog-up because of high humidity or rapidly changing temperatures. To ensure a non-slip grip during focusing even while wearing gloves or in bad weather, the center focus knob is wide and knurled. The binocular is mountable on a tripod with an optional adapter and has rubber twist-up eyecaps. Also included is a rainguard, tethered lens covers, a semi-rigid carry case, and a lens cloth.

    8x50HD Profinder Binocular is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great close focus, fairly bright, otherwise just okay. The thing that really convinced me to keep the Snypex is the close focus. It is fun to be able to examine things along a trail that are maybe 3 or 4 feet away.� Great for animal tracks, tiny mushrooms, and tiny flowers. The focus wheel turns more than 1 1/2 times (maybe 550 degrees) around from close to infinity. Seems like a lot of turning to change focus, but in the middle range, if anything, you'd want finer focus control.� I'm not an expert, but it seems to be a good ratio considering how close it focuses. You're not paying for super duper optics, but they are okay for me.� They are a bit heavy, and the eye pieces come just barely close enough together for my eye spacing. It took some practice to be able to position them correctly to see a full image with both eyes.� I measured the minimum position at 62mm.� My eyes are 65mm apart.� Check yours before you buy.� We have a Vortex 8x40 pair that feels more natural to use and is just about as bright. The Snypex has twist out eye cups that allow you to position them at several different distances from the eye piece lens. I always want them all the way out, so that's no use to me.� Also, I have to twist them back in to fit them in the case .� We switched cases between the Vortex and the Snypex and that works for us.� The Snypex is a slightly larger binocular than the 8x40 Vortex with a slightly smaller case. We're happy but you may not be. The diopter adjustment is quite hard to turn at first. Thought I might need pliers but it eventually got it going with strong fingers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for your money Got this as a daily deal. The quality of the build and glass make this bin a great value at the regular price ( magnesium body, etc..) and a spectacular one when on sale.
