Steiner BluHorizons Overview

  • 1Description

Outfitted with innovative technologies and designed for easy carrying, the Steiner Optics 8x22 BluHorizons Binocular is ideal for the beach, trail, or sightseeing around town.

Steiner's proprietary Autobright Lens Technology utilizes existing tech from the eyeglass industry to solve common problems—such as eyestrain, reduced contrast and clarity, and washed-out colors—when using magnified optics in extremely bright conditions. This photochromic adaptive system automatically dims the lenses in bright sunlight, much like popular transition eyeglass lenses that are clear when you're inside will darken when you go outside. By reducing the excessive light, the lenses improve color rendition, contrast, clarity, and resolution while also making your viewing experience more comfortable. This is complemented by a wide apparent angle of view to give you an immersive experience. Winged eyecups that block peripheral light from hitting your eyes further improve contrast and reduce distraction.

Its housing is made of a lightweight and impact-resistant polycarbonate material that is also temperature resistant—making it extremely durable over its lifetime of use. The chassis is wrapped in an oil-, petroleum-, and chemical-resistant synthetic nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) armor that offers improved grip security, especially in cold and wet weather. Standing just 4" tall and weighing under 9 ounces, the BluHorizon will easily fit most packs, pockets, or purse and won't burden you when you have to carry it around your neck all day.

Use and Handling
  • Closed bridge configuration provides a solid platform for the internal focusing system
  • Fast-Close-Focus system requires minimal rotation to take the binocular from its minimum focus distance to infinity for faster and easier focusing capability
  • Low-profile textured center focusing wheel is easy to use with either hand
