Opticron DBA VHD overview

  • 1Description

Opticron's black 8x42 DBA VHD Binocular balances optical performance with rugged construction details to create a versatile binocular that is as at home in the stadium as it is in the woods or on the boat. It features the proprietary VHD optical system that combines extra low-dispersion (ED) glass, phase-corrected prisms, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, and a field-flattener lens system to produce bright, high-contrast images with neutral color fidelity and virtually zero distortion across the entire field of view. Employing the iconic combination of 8x magnification and 42mm objectives keeps the bulk down so it is comfortable to carry in a pack or around the neck while offering an immersive field of view and competent low-light performance.

The binocular is designed with an open-bridge dual-hinge configuration that helps to reduce weight without sacrificing strength, while offering a more secure grip by allowing your fingers to wrap around the optical tubes completely. To withstand the elements wherever you use them, the housing is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed for water and fogproof performance in even the most extreme weather. Black rubber armoring provides protection from drops and impacts, as well as adding to its slip-resistant grip. For long duration glassing sessions, the DBA VHD has a concealed tripod adapter mount to attach it to a stable support system.
