Bushnell Adds Two Models To The Legend Ultra·HD Binocular Line


Legend Ultra HD 8×36 Camo

Legend Ultra HD 10×36 Black

Overland Park, KS — The Legend Ultra·HD binoculars have quickly become a favorite of serious outdoorsmen since their introduction in 2009. The combination of high quality optics and premium ED Prime Glass with the new Ultra Wide Band Custom Coating lens technology provides the ultimate in high definition performance.

Two new mid-size roof prism models have been introduced for 2010 — the Legend Ultra·HD 8x36mm and 10x36mm. Their anti-reflective Ultra Wide Custom Coating delivers the best available light not only during the peak of the day, but also at dusk and dawn when optics matter most. Premium ED (Extra Low Dispersion) glass delivers optimal color performance and edge-to-edge sharpness.

Compared to similarly price optics, Legend Ultra·HD binoculars deliver a wider field of view and are also more comfortable to use. Longer eye relief means less eye strain. The new Legend Ultra·HD binoculars are built on a lightweight, durable magnesium chassis. As a bonus they come with a deluxe binocular harness with pre-attached neckstrap lugs that distributes the weight of the binoculars more evenly across your back.

The new mid-size Legend Ultra·HD binoculars provide all weather performance with their 100 percent waterproof construction and new RainGuard® HD high-density permanent coating, which scatters less light by minimizing or eliminating moisture on the lens surface.

The 8×36 version comes in RealTree AP camouflage and the 10×36 model in black. Both come complete with a premium carrying case, neck strap and custom binocular harness. Suggested retail prices are: 8×36 – $249.99 and 10×36 – $249.99. They are available at Bushnell dealers nationwide.

The COOLPIX S4000 and S3000 are successors to the COOLPIX S230 and S220, cameras that set record sales worldwide with advanced operations and high performance in a slim, stylish design available in a variety of colors (the COOLPIX S4000 and COOLPIX S230 are equipped with a touch panel). The two new cameras offer improved shooting functions for greater convenience, and the slim body has a high-quality design available in a variety of colors to suit individual preferences and style. In addition to an effective pixel count of 12-million pixels and a wide-angle 4x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that begins at 27mm (35mm format equivalent), the cameras offer several new features including four functions that prevent or reduce blur, smart portrait mode with a skin softening function, and high-definition movie recording capability (the COOLPIX S4000 only).

The COOLPIX S4000 is equipped with a high-resolution 3-in., approximately 460k-dot touch panel TFT LCD monitor that offers intuitive operation. Monitor visibility has been increased for clear display of more details. The extremely practical operational controls have been inherited from its predecessor, and new touch panel functions including touch shutter and slider adjustment of white balance have been included. The new graphical user interface (GUI) makes for clearer display and improved operation. This comprehensive model offers all basic camera functions, as well as support for more advanced features such as HD movie recording, making it extremely practical. It is a stylish model that proposes a more quality camera lifestyle for those who are sensitive to the latest trends.

COOLPIX S3000 (Green)

The slim COOLPIX S3000, with a depth of approximately 19 mm, incorporates all of Nikon’s advanced shooting functions in a body size that can be easily carried in a small purse or pouch. The rounded form with which attention was paid to the smallest details has a high-quality look and feel. Available in eight colors, there is a model to suit every preference and lifestyle.

Nikon COOLPIX S4000/S3000 Shared Features

  • An effective pixel count of 12.0 million pixels. A slimmer body equipped with a wide-angle 4x optical zoom NIKKOR lens
    The cameras offer an effective pixel count of 12.0 million pixels. Both are equipped with an optimized image processing system based on EXPEED, Nikon’s exclusive image processing concept that enables capture of beautiful, high-resolution images. The slim bodies are equipped with a wide-angle 4x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that exhibits superior rendering performance beginning at the maximum wide-angle position of 27mm (35mm format equivalent) for flexible and fun zoom photography.
  • Smart portrait mode for consistently beautiful portraits
    1. Skin softening:
    Linked to the face-priority function, the camera detects and smoothes skin tones
    2. Face-priority AF:
    This function enables not only beautiful portraits, but also makes capturing group photos faster and easier
    3. Smile timer:
    The camera recognizes a face and focuses on that face; when that face smiles, the shutter is automatically released
    4. Blink proof:
    The camera captures two sequential shots and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open
    5. Blink warning:
    The camera displays a warning message when it detects that the subject may have blinked when the picture was taken
    6. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix:
    If the camera detects red-eye in the captured image, digital processing is automatically performed to reduce red-eye before the image is saved
  • Four features that effectively prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement
    1. Electronic vibration reduction (VR):
    Digital compensation applied with image processing to images in which the camera detects blur
    2. Support for high sensitivities:
    The camera supports sensitivities up to ISO 3200 for beautiful pictures taken at an image size of 4000 x 3000 pixels

    4. Nikon’s own BSS (best shot selector):
    The camera automatically shoots up to ten sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus
  • Bodies with a functionally stylish design available in a wide variety of colors
    The attractive and stylish camera bodies are designed with a smooth, rounded form and glossy components. The larger operational buttons on the back of the camera and the rotating zoom control on the top of the camera are optimally positioned for simple operation. The COOLPIX S4000 is available in six colors and the COOLPIX S3000 in eight colors, allowing for selection of the color best suited to individual lifestyle.
  • Scene auto selector mode makes capturing beautiful images worry free
  • Subject tracking automatically tracks subjects to maintain focus
    This function automatically recognizes human faces and then initiates subject tracking to follow the movement of the recognized subject. When a face is not automatically recognized, the target for subject tracking can be manually specified. The camera will automatically track the specified subject as it moves to continuously keep it in focus. Should the specified subject temporarily leave the frame for less than three seconds, the camera will resume tracking it once it re-enters the frame.

Bushnell Brings Color To Night Vision Optics

Overland Park, Kan. — Bushnell night vision optics are popular for scouting and wildlife watching, allowing viewers see into the dark undetected, without spooking game.

The unit features true 3x magnification with a field of view of over 700 feet and a range of nearly 300 feet.

The Bushnell Digital Color NightVision monocular works great not only for wildlife viewing, but for night fishing, camping, boating, caving, security and surveillance, search and rescue and nighttime navigation – any time you need to clearly see into the night without a flashlight.

The Bushnell Digital Color Night Vision monocular sells for a suggested retail price of $299.99.

VMC® Dominator™ Hammer Head Jigs Ooze Options

2020655Minnetonka, Minn. – Building on the success of the DominatorTM Series, VMC® unveils the new Dominator Hammer Head Jigs, an innovative extension to an already savvy lineup. Last year, VMC technology put a stranglehold on the jigging world with the release of the Dominator Series. This year domination comes in a new form with the introduction of the Hammer Head Jig. Integrating technology, tradition and on-the-water aptitude – VMC’s authority expands.

The Dominator Hammer Head Jig has a unique design. The jig head has two eyelets; one traditional, forward-facing eyelet and one rear-facing, angled down eyelet. This design allows anglers extreme versatility when jigging. Either jig in the traditional style or connect the VMC Quik Strike Trailer Hooks to the back-facing eyelet, and you will up your strikes.

The Quik Strike Trailer Hook connection gives jigging a whole new dimension. Anglers now have the power to use their favorite Dominator style jig, but outfit it with trailer hooks. The Quik Strike Trailer Hook (sold separately) is equipped with a Sufix® 12lb. Fluorocarbon Leader and can be connected to each jig with the Fast Snap system.

Dominator Hammer Head Jigs are precision balanced and made with Premium High Carbon Steel. They have a Short Shank VMC Power Gap™ hook, which offers a larger hook gap for maximum exposure. The Power Gap is the accentuated distance between the beginning and end of the hook’s curve, which results in a more efficient hooking rate.

Available in eight fish-attracting solid and glow colors with inset 3D eyes, the Hammer Head Jig can be fished in all angling conditions.

Hammer Head Jigs are available four per pack in one of 3 sizes: 1 inch weighing 1/8 ounce, 1 1/4 inches weighing 1/4 ounce and 1 1/4 inches weighing 3/8 ounce.

Just when anglers thought jigs couldn’t get any better, VMC sets the hook…twice.

Suggested retail price: $3.69
