Kowa GN22-10 overview

  • 1Description

Representing the smallest aperture in the Genesis family, the Kowa 10x22 Genesis 22 PROMINAR XD Binocular provides the performance required for birding, hunting, or sightseeing without the bulk of mid and full-sized models. To improve image quality and offset the light gathering limitations of the small objectives are complementary technologies that include the use of PROMINAR extra low-dispersion glass, anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, highly reflective C3 and phase-correction prism coatings that work together to produce crisp, clear, and bright high-contrast images with accurate color rendition. To help reduce the appearance of visible hand-shake that is common with high-power optics such as this, is a wide apparent angle of view and a long eye relief, which also help to produce an immersive observational experience for any user.

Designed for extensive outdoor use, the lightweight magnesium alloy chassis is wrapped in a protective rubber armor with a textured palm-pads and bridge to provide a slip-resistant grip. To ensure a compact and highly-packable form-factor, Kowa utilizes Schmidt-Pechan prisms that allow for slimmer optical tubes but deliver the performance of conventional roof prisms. Added to this are dual hinges that enable the barrels to fold tightly under the bridge so when they are not in use, the Genesis 22 take up as little room as possible. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature or humidity changes.

  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal light diffraction to improve clarity and contrast
  • C3 prism coatings improve internal light transmission to higher than 99% across the entire visible spectrum to improve color rendition, clarity, and contrast
