Binoculars

Anyone have recommendations for a reasonable priced set of binoculars. They will be used bird watching as gift.

Re: Binoculars

Depends on how well you want to see the girls...I mean birds.

Bushnell makes a good set for a reasonable price if you really want to see the birdies you can get into a set of Zeiss optics and break the bank.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Binoculars

gpsdiscount.com now sells Nikon, I imagine a similar discount.

I have a pair of Ruby quartz Barska's I got off woot for about 20$ that I was told are pretty decent. They go for about 45$ or so anywhere else I have seen them, is that affordable? Mine are like new (no box, but a pouch) that are yours for 25$ shipped

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Thanks actually I was going to go up from there something around $100 (I was distracted when posting by the video so left out the $$$) As cool as they look the Canon IS ones are out of budget though They are for my sister in law so I want nice but durable.

Re: Binoculars

Nikon Action 10x50 6.5 degrees. My wife uses them for bird watching. A bit short of 100.00 at sports authority. On sale when I bought them for 75.00. They worked fine since last Christmas.

ONE.

Re: Binoculars

Anyone have experience with binoculars that have a built in digital camera? This would seem like a good idea when trying to indentify birds. You wouldn't need a real high megapixel camera, 3 megapixel would be enough.

Re: Binoculars

Helpful info that no matter the brand.

Welcome to Carl Zeiss Optical, Inc.

Under Binoculars look for "binocular school" in the left header.
