Nikon 7247 overview

  • 1Description

With its powerful magnification and large objectives, the Nikon 16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular is the ideal companion for boaters who need to read marker buoys and see potential hazards far in advance, or for big-game hunters who need to clearly identify game at extreme distances.

To help mitigate the disorientation often experienced when looking through a binocular on the water, the Action Extreme has a generous field of view and an exceptional eye relief that provides the room to back the eyes off the eyepieces for a more comfortable viewing position. The traditional Porro prism design, when combined with the over-sized objective lenses, BAK4 prism glass, and anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, delivers immersive high-contrast views that are bright and sharp, with accurate colors and a rich depth of field so users can differentiate the relative distance between objects in the view.

Complementing this optical performance are design details that allow the Action Extreme to withstand the rigors of outdoor life and make their use easier in extreme conditions. The Porro prism design has an inherently balanced and comfortable feel in the hand for long-duration observation sessions. Rubber armor protects the chassis and provides a sure and reliable grip in cold and wet weather, while the large center focus wheel is likewise rubberized, and the right-eye dioptric correction is adjusted using a thumb lever—instead of a conventional ring—to make it easier to use when wearing gloves. Its optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature and environmental conditions. A tethered one-piece ocular rainguard covers the eyecups as they hang around the neck and prevents rain and spraying water from filling them, and the objective lens caps can clip onto the neck strap to keep them safe from blowing overboard or being lost on the forest floor.

From the trail, to the range, to the boat, the 16x50 Action Extreme binocular is engineered to deliver the high-power long-distance performance required by discerning observers—especially boaters and avid outdoor enthusiasts who won't let inclement weather and rough seas keep them at home or in a safe harbor.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 16x magnification allows detailed observations of distant subjects on land and sea
  • Large 50mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability to ensure distant views remain bright and sharp for better resolution, even in challenging light conditions
  • Traditional Porro prism design makes it comfortable to hold and presents a rich depth of field
  • High-index BAK4 prisms deliver a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics produce neutral and accurate color fidelity and improve contrast and image brightness
  • Apparent angle of view approaches wide-angle to help reduce the appearance of visible hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics such as this
  • 183-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Large textured and slip-resistant center fast-focusing knob is easy to manipulate in cold or wet weather or while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction enables users to compensate for individual optical prescriptions for clearer views; large adjustment lever is easy to find and use
  • 56-72mm interpupillary adjustment range allows use by a wide variety of people
  • Twist-up/click-stop rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter that enables hands-free use to eliminate hand shake/vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Long 17.8mm eye relief helps to reduce eyestrain and improves viewing comfort
  • 3.1mm exit pupil
Construction Details
  • Environmentally-friendly prism and lens feature Eco-Glass that is made without lead and arsenic
  • Protective textured rubber armoring provides a slip-resistant grip in cold or wet weather
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Includes tripod mount adapter to improve image stability for long-term observations, eliminate arm fatigue, and limit vibrations
  • One-piece tethered ocular rainguard protects eyecups
  • Objective lens caps can be clipped to neck strap to avoid losing them during observation sessions
  • Weight: 37 ounces

Nikon 7247 reviews

16x50 Action Extreme ATB Binocular is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love these Nikon wins hands down. I am a professional wildlife videographer and compared these field glasses to Leica, Zeiss, and Swarovski costing a couple thousand dollars. The bigger prices don't add up. The Nikon EX Extreme field of view, brightness, and clarity are incredible and exceed more costly optics I've used. 50mm objective lens diameter is perfect for my application. These Nikon's are also nitrogen gas filled making them waterproof and fog-free (a must have). They have asepherical eyepiece lens which elimiates image distortion, rubber armouring, and tripod mount. I count on my ability to focus to make my living and I am blown away by the quality for the dollars. B&H also had best price ...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to Obtain Sharp Focus Focusing is extremely sensitive. I realize that these are 16X glasses and focusing has to be precise. As well, the optics are not as clear and as sharp as my Nikon Action Lookout IV 10X50 binoculars I have had for 25 years. I use the main focusing wheel and then adjust the dioptric feature on the right side. I have never had any issue with the 10X50 product; as well, I have no difficulty adjusting focus on my Canon and Tamron lenses when I use manual focusing to fine tune telephoto shooting (up to 600mm). I've read reviews that cite heaviness - I find the 16X50 to be comfortable to hold, no heavier than the 10X50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On a clear night... Unlike, I suppose, the majority of users, I went with these as a lightweight alternative to a rather bulky set of 15x70s for astro. use. They are compelling. Capella shone with no discernable coma at all, a pleasant yellow-white shining jewel in the ample field. It was even better than a very good 9x63 or the 15x70s previously mentioned, both of which came from a famous maker of astronomical gear. Now, bearing in mind that we had only one clear night since these arrived, and I plan to stick them on a monopod for some long-range birding, time with tell how they perform in the day. I suspect no disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value binoculars After having purchased the 7x35 binoculars from the same series for birdwatching, and being very impressed with their quality, I decided to also try the binoculars with the highest magnification in this series, the 16x50. The large magnification is a good choice to observe things that are far away and not fast moving, e.g. wildlife, or also (distant) plane spotting, or watching ships. A 16x magnification results of course in a much smaller field of view, and image quality, although very good, is not quite as good as for the 7x35. Part of this is probably also due to the fact that 16x magnification is best handled with a tripod or the binoculars resting on something. Luckily these come with a tripod mount already! But they are still light enough to be held by hand, and I am very happy with using them in the field without tripod. Again, solidly made and a great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love These I live on Skidaway Island, in Georgia, near the Atlantic Ocean. Hot! Wet! Humid! Saltwater and Salt Air!. I am an avid fisherman/boater, birder etc and have gone through MANY pairs of binoculars as the saltwater plays havoc on everything in the boat. Water proof/fog proof is what I need. These are great for reading channel markers and looking for tailing fish etc. I can use these through my windows and they bring the alligators and birds up close and personal. The warranty of no questions asked was what made me choose these. I liked them so much that I bought another pair for my son. He loves them too. Weight is no issue. Clear as the air at all distances. I can now take them everywhere and I don't have to worry. I used the $25 gift card to buy floating neck strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Binoculars I love 'em! I take them hiking and my boys and I really enjoy seeing bobcats or hawks up close and personal. They are also great for night sky viewing, particularly the moon. Shaking and fatigue are not a huge problem, but I was very pleased that they came with tripod adapter, which I just leave on all the time. The binoculars are AMAZING with tripod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long view I'm using these because I live in a highrise with the best view in the world and wanted to get a better view of the boats and wildlife from my balcony. Glad I chose the 16x50's instead of 10x50's - the extra magnification is helpful. The 16x50's are right on the verge of requiring a tripod (not necessary, but very helpful), and when looking at slow-moving things (boats, the moon, buildings, etc) I always use the tripod. No fog issues, even with cold a/c inside, straight to hot humid Fort Lauderdale outside. I would have given 5-stars, but one point is subtracted because I don't feel that the tripod mount tightens enough - it's a touch wobbly - but then again, maybe I'm just doing something wrong and ill figure it out with a few more weeks of playing with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with 16x50 Nikon binoculars I bought thereto use for general astronomical viewing in an area with lots of town light. They're great for this and have exceeded my hopes. They also provided enough magnification to see Comet Lovejoy recently. I strongly recommend using them on a tripod. They come with a basic tripod mount adapter, which works fine. I can't really say anything about terrestrial use, since we've only had them out at night, but the image is sharp and bright, and the adjustments easy to make. The only reason they didn't get the 5th star is that on bright planets, especially Jupiter, there's a faint green edge, so the optics could be a little more precise, but it's not problem. Jupiter's moons were bright and sharp. Overall, they're great for the price and for our intended application.
