    Dioptre setting on a 12x50 UV+

    This is a simple question about dioptre setting. It seems much harder to set the dioptre absolutely correctly on my 12x50 UV+ than it does on my lower power binoculars. Also, in general, the ease of view is not what is on the lower power bins - even compared to a 10x42. I presume that it is the...

    Asymmetry of optics left to right

    So, a question. I’ve noticed that the insides of two similar binoculars that I have do not appear similar inside (left to right barrels). It’s hard for me to describe because frankly I don’t know what I’m looking at, but I see two ‘halves’ looking through toward the ocular lens which are of...

    To strap, or not to strap.......

    Hello everyone! I'm wondering what you good folk do with your bino strap. It's always seemed to me that the obvious, best, safest thing to do is to attach the strap to the bin and put it round your neck(!), but whenever I see pics posted of peoples bins the strap is hardly ever attached. I have...

    Hello from a British expat in Finland!

    Hello everyone! I've been lurking here for a while but have decided to take the plunge and join the fun! I confess that I'm not a 'birder' (yet!) but I love observing nature and beautiful scenery etc with a good pair of binoculars! I've learned a lot from reading here already and feel that I...
