binocular buying guide from birding.com (same guide I posted the last time the woot was binoculars)

Woot price looks pretty good but they are pretty large binoculars.

Other binoculars starting at $4.95 (7x), 20x magnification starting at $28. Pretty darn cheap. How good are they? I don’t know.

This time WITHOUT a crappy camera built in!


#8

What?? No night vision…sheesh.


#9

Cool…I was about to buy some cheapo Bushnell 20x50 for $49.99 for some sporting events…now I can go even cheaper. If the wife lets me, of course.


#10

I was just thinking today that I want a pair of binoculars for my new office at work. Thanks for reading my mind and pissing everyone off, woot! you made my night!


#11

nice product, good specs, but how about 3-4 MB camera, too?


#12

I’ve got a pair of these and the red coating on the lens creates a color cast.


#13

yay! i bought some…i guess i can use them for hunting or just looking at stuff :slight_smile:


#14

Just a little word to the wise. Most people cannot keep a binocular above 10x or 12x maximum, steady without a tripod. At 20x, you will most likely definitley have to use a tripod with these. If considering, keep that in mind.


#15

anyone know if these are any good for watching horse races? The back stretch at Belmont is unbelievably far away from the stands… Not sure what 20x50 translates to…


#16

What, no zoom? I’d buy if it had a zoom. Oh well, bed time anyway.


#17

Not bad. Deer season opens soon. Could come in handy spotting Bambi romping in the forest. Just might go for it.


#18

If you’re wanting a really good pair, the difference in lens quality of a good model vs. a cheap model is amazing. If you’re just going to use 'em once in a while and not go bird-watching then perfect :slight_smile:


#19

i got the mediocre ones that were for 2 for tuesday back in aug. that was a much better deal…


#20

Hmmm…I was ready to buy these for looking at things at nite, but the 2.5mm exit pupil tells me that these binoc’s won’t be the best item to use for dim light use. And there HAS to be an error on the eye relief… 7.2 INCHES???

Come on, Woot! Good binoculars are great…but then again, these are only $16!
