Sakura 30-260x160 Binoculars (1 Viewer)

A video review of this binocular, perhaps by a seller, says with a straight face that the tubes are 80mm, which means the aperture is 160.

By this reasoning, I presume that the 260x magnification means each tube magnifies 130x.

The price seems to be £90, which seems remarkably good for a 160mm aperture binocular.

By the same logic, I suppose an observer with a 6mm pupil actually has 12mm pupils with two eyes.

And a 70 year old has two eyes of age 140 years.

I am not sure how old the ten toes would be.

What is apparent in these videos where a phone camera video is included to show the top magnification, no mention is made as to whether the two tubes are in alignment for a normal observer.
The video only looks through one tube.

It is quite clear from the Sakura 20-180x100 that the above reasoning also applies.

With both binoculars the back plates have the specifications clearly marked.

The internet is truly a place to find real information and great binoculars.

Regards,
B.

Thanks for this Binnie. If my memory is correct I think 'Sakura' means Cherry Blossom in Japanese and I am sure it is educational to reflect on the fact that Cherry Blossom is also a brand of shoe polish...... Or maybe it is just my weird sense of humour.
