Glossary | Binoculars | Special features

Binoculars can be equipped with additional functions such as an image stabilizer or a zoom.

More information:

  • Compass
    On these models, the compass display is usually shown in a small part of the field of view. A distinction is made between digital and manual versions.
  • Eyepieces for spectacle wearers
    These eyepieces have a relatively large eye relief. It is possible to wear spectacles while observing and still benefit from a comfortable viewing position.
  • Image stabilizer
    Compensates for the natural trembling of the hands. The picture is so stable, as if you were observing using a tripod.
  • Rangefinder
    An automatic or manual feature for measuring distances.
  • Splash-proof
    These binoculars may only be exposed to moderate moisture or light drops of water.
  • Threaded tripod connector
    A 1/4" thread for connection to a photographic tripod. Most binoculars require an additional tripod adapter.
  • Watertight
    Watertight optics are equipped with special seals and are gas-purged. This is usually with nitrogen or argon gas. Since these gases are heavier than air, they cannot escape.
  • Zoom function
    The binoculars’ magnification may be variably adjusted using either a lever or a scroll-wheel.
