Fujinon 16330627 overview

  • 1Description

Among the world's greatest boating binoculars, the military-specification Fujinon 7x50 FMTRC-SX Polaris Binocular with Compass transmits an incredible >95% of the light reaching the binocular and has Fujinon's EBC multi-coatings on every optical surface. It is also equipped (as is any Fujinon Polaris series binocular) with flat-field, distortion-free eyepieces that accept optional filters and are ideal for astronomy applications.

The 100% fog and waterproof 7x50 Polaris withstands drastic temperature and humidity changes with ease, has abundant eye relief for use with sunglasses in bright conditions, and is simply the brightest, highest-resolution 7x50 boating binocular money can buy. This version of the 7x50 Polaris has both a rubber-armored exterior and an internal compass with rangefinding reticle. While the compass is electronically controlled for rapid response to bearing changes, illumination is by a natural daylight-gathering window. At night, you will need the optional external compass illuminator.

Nitrogen-purged water and fogproof lenses
Up to 13 Fujinon EBC multi-coatings on all optical surfaces

    Fujinon 16330627 reviews

    7x50 FMTRC-SX Polaris Binocular with Compass is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great marine binoculars I've used a pair of Fujinon 7x50's on the water for 30 years in a wide range of conditions -- cold and wet, dry and hot. They have performed wonderfully and I've never damaged them despite numerous knocks. Over that time, the compass has dried out and quit working (not a problem for me because I have a separate fluxgate compass for shooting bearings) and I had to glue some of the rubber armor back on. One of the interior optical elements has started to develop a slight haze, which I believe could be removed by a competent repair center. But I am planning to buy another pair and keep the original as a backup because overall, this is a great binocular, especially at dusk. The weight is actually an advantage on a small boat because it dampens movement. I just stand in the companionway and rest my elbows on the cabin top to form a bipod that steadies everything down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Marine Glass for under $ I just got a pair of the Fujinon 7x50 FMTRC-SX. I still have a pair of Steiner Navigator Pros, so I can do some glass-to-glass comparison. I ordered the Fujis because the Steiner's seemed to have excessive glare and halo when observing at night with a very bright light in the field of view. The glare seemed very excessive and I had been told that the Fujis would be better. Just checked tonight for the halo/glare when a bright light is in the field of view, no comparison! The Fujis are nearly completely free of any glare or halo. The Steiners have a great deal of glare and halo. Also when looking at barely lite shadows, the Fujis have noticeably better detail, are significantly brighter, and have better contrast. Fujis 'flat field' optics really do seem to be effective. When I move back and forth between both pair of binoculars, it is obvious that the Fujis are sharper edge-to-edge. Given that the Fujis are approximately the same price as the Navigator Pros, these points alone make the Fujis a great value. The ocular on the Fujis are quite a bit bigger in diameter than the Navigator Pros. It seems like that will make it easier to use at night. Easier to find the image, especially when there's a big seaway moving things around. I like the ergonomics of the Fujis better than the Steiners. Gripping around each barrel is much easier and more solid. The Steiner's are flat across the top and don't allow for as firm a grip. The Steiners also have a much bigger compass body and that gets in the way of holding them firmly. The only thing that I like better about the Steiners (for years I had always thought that Steiner was the only real marine bino to own, but I could never afford them previously) is the compass. It seems to have better damping than the Fujis. The Fuji really jumps around a lot and I can only imagine that it will be much worse in a seaway. That could be a real negative. Plus, the compass on the Fuji is on the left ocular (rather than the right like the Steiners). Since I'm right-eye dominate, it is easier to the see the compass on the Steiners. The Fujis also don't have a built in light. I'm going to have to buy the optional external illuminator (seems like an odd thing to make an option, especially since these are designed for mariners and getting a compass reading at night is very important). Well, I guess there is nothing that's perfect (unless I spent the additional money on the Steiner Commanders, which are supposed to be optically more like the Fujis). Which I don't think I'll do, It's an extra four to five hundred for the Commanders, even when I add the optional illuminator for the Fujis.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great binoculars. Use the binoculars on my boat. Binoculars have great clarity and crispness, especially in low light. These binoculars are a bit heavy, but not their detriment; I believe it helps add to their stability. Overall, a great binocular at a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret the purchase I bought this binocular in Singapore more than 25 years ago at a price of almost $1000. It was a very expensive purchase at that time but after I tried them at the astronomy store, I was hooked. I use them for anything that requires binoculars including birding, marine, hiking and general use. When at Hayden Valley, Yellowstone NP, I could see the bears, sand cranes and a lone wolf at incredible distances. The sharpness, brightness and field of view bested most of the spotting scopes beside me. Magnification eats light, detail and field. In 7x50's, the combination of magnification and objective diameter make for the ideal balance for any hand held ocular. The compass was especially useful to point out objects to others merely by telling them the directional reading. As an amateur astronomer and an optics affictionado from childhood, I know good optics and Fujinon puts out some of the best. These are the brightest and sharpest binocular on the market, bar none. Nikon, Steiner, Leica glasses are just not as good. The lastest iteration of the 7x50FMTRCSX may be a bit different. Mine came with a bulletproof leather case and tripod mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simply exceptional on the water i use this binocular on my boat sometimes near or in heavily trafficated commercial waterways. There are no equal 7x50 binoculars to the fujinon in terms of view and robust contruction. The compass and the graduation grid helps to gage distance from other vessels and estimate your position. The only negative point to me is the lack of a case and glare and polarized filters not included with it.After all it's a mariners binocular and used more often than not in poor visibility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting binos I've had a pair of these binos for almost 30 years. They have performed flawlessly. I took one star off the rating because of the heft of these and that they don't have a tripod mount. Otherwise, I love them.
