Lightweight Comfort, Durability and HD Glass All Combined in New MINOX BL Binoculars


MINOX has introduced a new generation of their powerful BL line of binoculars. Made in Germany, they combine the use of innovative HD glass, a completely new optical system and a robust but lightweight Comfort Bridge body.

The use of new, high-quality HD glass, with anomalous partial dispersion, ensures improved color correction and higher light transmission. The new MINOX optical system includes phase-corrected roof prisms that produce even better images with perfect detail and high contrast even in poor light conditions. And multi-coated lenses guarantee the highest optical performance and neutral color rendition.

There are five models in this new MINOX BL series – 8×33, 8×44, 10×44, 8X52 and 10×52 – all exceptionally light weight, ranging from just 23 to 33 ounces. The sturdy housing is rubber coated for a sure, comfortable one-hand grip, and they are waterproof to 16 feet. Nitrogen gas purging prevents fogging during temperature fluctuations.

Twist-type retractable rubber eye cups with individual click stops are provided on all models; for those with eyeglasses, extendible exit pupil eye pieces ensure the complete field of vision remains without shadowing effects.

Leica Introduces Completely Updated Trinovid 8×42 and 10×42 Binoculars

A Leica classic is back and it’s better than ever. Leica is excited to introduce its updated Trinovid premium entry level binoculars at the 2012 SHOT Show. The first Trinovids were known for their innovative prism design and unparalleled optical performance. The latest models, available in 8×42 BR and 10×42 BR, feature a rugged design making them the ideal binos for hunters everywhere.

According to Terry Moore, Leica Sport Optics vp sales & marketing, “In everything we do at Leica, our objective is to be best in class. We developed the new Trinovids to be fully-featured and to maintain Leica’s high standard for exceptional engineering while providing superior value and performance as the new Best in Class of premium entry-level binoculars.”

Thanks to magnesium housing, the Trinovids are extremely lightweight, yet they’re durable enough to handle rugged conditions and unpredictable weather thanks to the rubber armouring. Choose the 8x magnification for relaxed observation or the 10x magnification for high detail performance. The 42 mm objective lens delivers optimal light for viewing, even in less than optimal conditions. Both model Trinovids provide great contrast/neutral color correction thanks to high quality premium optics.

Features include a stainless-steel center hinge and large eye cups with 4 stops. Even though the Trinovids are affordable, the premium manufacturing and optical quality for which all Leica sport optics are renowned is obvious. For example, you won’t find any plastic parts on the watertight Trinovid, and the Roof prism system features P40 phase correction coating and the HLS™ HighLux system for fascinating viewing impressions.

The New Trinovids offer classic Leica style, superb optics and great field durability at a surprisingly affordable price, making them a must-have for the avid hunter.

Automotive sector meets optics: Volkswagen Design creates MINOX binoculars with digital compass

MINOX DC 7×50 DC black

MINOX DC 7×50 DC white

VW head designer Klaus Bischoff

With the model BN 7×50 DC of the new NAUTIK Line MINOX has set a new milestone in the development of innovative and revolutionary products: the MINOX BN 7×50 DC is fitted with the latest state-of-the-art technology and offers water-sports enthusiasts many important features such as a digital compass, barometer, stopwatch, tilt function altimeter and temperature display.

The biggest challenge in the design of the new BN 7×50 DC was the integration of the digital compass in the binocular body. A task that the competent Volkswagen Design Team took in their stride and created a binocular body that stands out with a superb ergonomic and functional design.

MINOX and Volkswagen Design can look back on a longstanding cooperation. The engineers and developers of the Wetzlar-based optics manufacturers MINOX, and the creative team at Volkswagen have been working together for fifteen years already. The presentation of many renowned design awards, including the Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany – the most prominent award in Germany – underscores the successful cooperation of these two Germany companies. Both Volkswagen and MINOX can boast a longstanding tradition and decades of experience. MINOX products offer highest quality standards, maximum precision, solidity and longevity.

“The identity and tradition of the brand MINOX features a very strong  design component. On this basis we develop a design concept that is geared to refine and provide new interpretations of these values. The result will naturally always coincide with the goals and the quality standards of Volkswagen Design“, commented head designer Klaus Bischoff.

The new MINOX BN 7×50 DC also has a good chance of receiving one of the coveted German design awards.

Best New Binoculars: Swarovski CL Companion 8x30mm

Best New Binoculars: Swarovski CL Companion 8x30mm

Swarovski’s brand-new CL Companion is anything but dull. Light and compact without falling into the shirt-pocket category, this is a binocular to use all day in the African bush or tote up a sheep mountain with comfort—as was noted independently by both optics testers, Geoff Clothier and Leroy Van Buggenum.

I can see it for treestand sitting in the whitetail woods. The testers’ comments included “very, very clear,” “field of view seems greater than 8×30,” “hardly know they are around your neck.” More important, to my eye anyway, is the technical quality of the binocular with its light-transmitting and -scratch–resisting lens coatings, turn-out eyecups, tight diopter adjustment, generous -center–focus ring, solid bridge, and grippy -ergonomic feel. —T.M.
