Opticron DBA VHD overview

  • 1Description

Opticron's black 10x42 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. 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 combination of powerful 10x magnification and moderately-sized 42mm objectives keeps the bulk down so it is comfortable to carry in a pack or around the neck while offering a wide and immersive field of view, competent low-light performance, and the ability to make detailed observations at long distances.

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, eliminating the visible hand-shake common to 10x and higher optics, the DBA VHD has a tripod adapter mount to attach it to a stable support system.
