Wildlife & Birding Binoculars

Using binoculars for wildlife viewing Are you looking for a pair of binoculars or a spotting scope to ensure you get the best views of that elusive "lifer" when out birding?

Or maybe you'd prefer easy-to-carry compact binoculars for your safari that will bring that huge male lion into sharp focus, allowing you to see every whisker?

Today's binoculars come in a wide range of prices and specifications, making it difficult to choose the optical product that's just right for your particular needs.

Did you know, for birding, it's generally accepted that binoculars should not be too powerful as you'll more easily identify a bird from a smaller, bright image than a larger, shaking one?

The more powerful the optics, the more difficult it is to keep the image steady, particularly when walking or climbing as fatigue induces shakinenss which is magnified by the binoculars.

We'll be adding informative articles and tips here that explain binocular terminology and will help in choosing the right binoculars for specific needs - see for example Binocular Design Governs Shape and Size.
