APM 12 x 50 Magnesium Series ED APO Binoculars
12 x 50 binoculars have been a popular choice size of binoculars for decades, and it is easy to see why. With 50 mm of light-gathering capability in each eye you will see fantastic detail in everything you observe, especially when compared to mini binoculars. With 12 x magnification and big optics, you can see visually the delicate features of a bird´s feathers, or watch your favorite quarterback go back for a pass even from the “cheap” seats. Here are some of the features you will enjoy with the APM 12 x 50 MS ED APO Binoculars:
Amazing Optics: The heart of a pair of binoculars is always the optics. Aesthetics of a pair of binoculars will not matter, if the binoculars themselves do not provide a clear, sharp, true color image of the world around you. APM’s Magnesium Series Binoculars, regardless of their magnification or aperture, always use quality ED glass (FK61) and BAK-4 prisms to yield high contrast, tack-sharp images over their entire field of view. Coupled with special coatings on all optical surfaces, the final result is enhanced producing true-to-life color with every viewing!
IPX-7 Water Protection: The International Electro-technical Commission, or IEC, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against the intrusion of water into a system that would suffer from damage should such an situation arise. The APM ED APO 12 x 50 Binoculars have an IPX-7 rating, meaning they are capable of withstanding water entry for up to 30 minutes in 1 meter of water. We realize this sort of mishap will most likely not happen, but this superior protection will keep your binoculars safe even if they get rained on or splashed with water.
Rugged, Lightweight Body: APM Telescope’s binoculars have a body made from Magnesium, the lightest of the metal elements. Magnesium is noted for its strength and resistance against corrosion and the binocular body itself is over-coated with a rubber armor; offering further protection for the binoculars and ensuring a slip-resistant grip without adding much weight. Focus is achieved by adjusting each eyepiece individually so that you can match your unique vision precisely. A tripod adapter port is located on the bridge and is covered by a metal beauty cap. To access the port, simply unscrew the cap and attach the included tripod adapter.
Good Eye Relief: The APM Telescope’s 12 x 50 Magnesium Series Binoculars have very comfortable eye relief. The term “eye relief” refers to where your eye will need to be placed to see the full image being produced through the binoculars. The lower the eye relief, the closer your eyes will need to be when positioned against the eyepiece. If you happen to wear eyeglasses and wish to observe with them on, eye relief becomes very important. Since APM Magnesium Binoculars have great eye relief, all will you have to do if you want to wear glasses during viewing is to fold down the rubber eye cups. For non-eyeglasses wearers, keep the eye cups unfolded.
