The Allround Binoculars - The Hummingbird 8x42
This binocular with 8x magnification is ideal for long distances - during the day and in low light conditions. The exit pupil of 5.3 mm is in a range that still allows fatigue-free observation. In one unique for this power class spring weight of only 615 g, the small dimensions of 142/130/49 mm, a large for binoculars of this type visual field of 126m and the short closest focusing distance (2.5 m) the possibilities are almost unlimited - for hunting in forests, fields and mountains to observations in the world of birds, flowers and insects.

The new Generation 
The Generation 3 not only comes with a new design with a slim bridge, but also with an improved look. In addition to a completely revised and improved optics, among others, the HDX-FMC coating is also used. In addition, all moving parts such as rear sight, focusing wheel and eyecup were made of robust light metal.Compared to its predecessor, the weight of the 3rd generation was reduced by almost 40 g.


High-intensity and high- contrast binoculars with 8x magnification An elaborate phase correction of the roof prism system ensures brilliant, color-rich and high-contrast images. In the case of lunar or backlight hardly any stray light effects occur. The HDX-FMC coating, which was newly used in the Generation 3, not only guarantees impressive image brightness but also an even higher and more reflex-free image sharpness right into the edge of the field of view.

Waterproof binoculars, fog-free and focusing from 2.5m Focusing
works on Hummingbird 8x42 via a true inner focus. Already from a range of 2.5 m, an object can be detected sharply. This works even in the strongest rain, which is not dangerous to the binoculars. Nitrogen filling ensures that the Hummingbird 8x42 is completely watertight and fog-free.

Full field of view for spectacle wearers 
The hummingbird 8x42 has eyecups with Z-latching of indestructible light metal. This retractable eyecups allow that eyeglass wearers get the full benefit of the entire field of view. On the right eyepiece is the easily adjustable diopter compensation .


Recommended Use The Hummingbird 8x42 offers a considerably larger field of view of 126 m compared to its counterpart with 10xmagnification , the Hummingbird 10x42 . Especially when it comes to addressing game clearly, this binoculars is ideal for a variety of hunting missions during the day and dusk because of the bright, high-contrast and reflection-free image reproduction and low weight. Optical quality, detail sharpness and brilliance in the image presentation offer nature lovers, hikers and animal watchers an overwhelming viewing experience. Because of the close range and the wide field of view, this binocular is also very popular with ornithologists and insect watchers.
