Brunton Echo Reviews

It's OK, but only for the price.

For the price being asked, this is an acceptable monocular, but I think my expectations were a little high. Going much past half of the zoom and the image becomes so dark, it is not much use. I would not suggest trying to use full zoom without a tripod. The image also becomes unclear and difficult to discern at high zoom, probably helped with a tripod, but not completely fixed. Operation of the zoom and focus collars is smooth and easy. It feels well made, and at the lower zoom range seems reasonably clear and useful. Feels like it would have been prudent to stop at 20X or so.

Would not buy again should have returned.

I had high hopes for this monocular but it fell way short. It is hard to get a clear view because you have to hold it away from your eye. The zoom does work but it is not viable when zoomed due to the extremely narrow field of view.

Works great on items at least 15-20 feet away

Great Monocular

I got this as part of my gear bag, always good to be able to see far ahead. Optics are good, solid clear image. Zoom is pretty awesome, amazing how close you can get with this little thing. Just understand if you are not familiar with high zoom, and small diameter optics, you will need to keep very still the closer you zoom to avoid image bouncing around. Comes with case and one sense cover. Wish it came with 2 covers, one for back as well as front, but this is by no means a deal breaker. you get a lot for the money with this one. haven't tested in rain or humidity, could change the number of stars. but for more ideal weather, this has been great so far.

I Love It

Good quality. Little bit low light image with max power

Zoom isn't a good idea

By Philip

This is an inexpensive monocular and the image quality shows it. Very bad image quality at 30x -- enough to make it unusable. At 10x the image quality is acceptable, but because of the zoom the field of view is very small (aka. tunnel vision). I would recommend instead getting a fixed-magnification 10x monocular for a better field of view.

question

10X is typical small monocular, but is it really 30X? I'm not expecting night vision, but Can you see OK at 30X?
Asked by: hono
it's really 30x but really don't get your hopes up that it's useful for your application.Like others have said, field of vision is low, it's a small aperture so it doesn't gather a ton of light, the optics themselves aren't anything to write home about.It's a simple compact easy to use scope for on the go needs, but any sort of detail work like bird watching or shot scoping will be pretty frustrating using this.

question

Does this produce come with a case?
Asked by: Watt G.
Yes, it comes with a nice, rather stout nylon case, be careful with the tripod mount as it is made of plastic. When zoomed to 30X it really needs to be mounted on a mono-pod or light tripod to be stable enough to use. At lower magnification it works very well hand held.
