With new high-performance HD optics, the new MINOX BL-HD binoculars show pin-sharp detail and natural colours. Phase correction coating on the roof prisms ensure images in crystal-clear rendition and high contrast even in poor light conditions.
A lightweight open-bridge construction facilitates a secure, one-handed operation and firm grip even in conditions of extreme cold or wet – perfect for maintaining mobility and stealth when in wild places!
The new BL HDs offer a wide field of view of up to 140 m (BL 8×33). The robust and ergonomically designed housing is rubber coated and fully water-tight (to a depth of 5 meters); Nitrogen gas purging helps prevent fogging in rapid temperature fluctuations.
Twist-type retractable rubber eyecups with individual click stops are provided on all models to help maintain a perfect field of view, avoiding shadowing effects.
The new BL HD binoculars are hand finished and are subjected to rigorous quality control inspections prior to leaving the MINOX factory in Wetzlar, Germany.
MINOX offers “ Comfort Service” on all BL HD models: customers are invited to perform a simple on-line registration of their new MINOX purchase. Once completed, customers can benefit from an extended protection against all manufacturing and functional defects – from the day of registration, the MINOX Comfort Service will be valid for 30 years.
