Ultra-wide field of view - See more faster
When looking for small and fast-moving birds, like the bearded reedlings, you need to scan vast areas in order to spot these small and nimble birds. They constantly move around and often evade detection in the thickets of their natural habitat.
Hence a large field of view is essential for detecting e.g. the bearded reedling, as it enables you to cover large areas faster and to see small movements at the edge of the viewing field.
Having a large field of view often makes the difference between spotting the bearded reedlings or not. The ultra-wide field of view of the SF enables the birder to see more and significantly increases the chance of success of finding these little and nimble birds in their natural habitat.
SmartFocus Concept - Focus fast and precise at all times with less effort for your finger due to perfect ergonomics
Eagles often circle in thermal updrafts. Due to the circular motion and the ascent of the eagles, the distance to the observer is constantly changing.
This means that the birder needs to change the focus distance all the time in order to get a perfectly sharp image of the eagles.
The smart focus system with 1.6 turns from close focus to infinity has just the right speed to be fast yet still precise. In addition, the focusing wheel is placed in such a way that your fingers and hand are completely relaxed, allowing for an extended period of observation of these majestic animals without getting fatigued and seeing the minute differences between the two species.
ErgoBalance Concept - Long term observation with ease
Birding often means spending many hours outdoors, looking for the special moments. During raptor migration, for example, you have to spend a lot of time looking high up in the sky. On the other side when looking for smaller birds, the opportunity of observation often only take a few seconds.
To be successful and clearly identify the birds, a steady hand and vibration-free image is essential. However, after holding the binoculars for an extended period of time the muscles often get fatigued and it is difficult to hold the binoculars steady.
The ErgoBalance Concept moves the weight of the binoculars towards the back of the binocular so that your muscles do not need to counter the heavier objective system. This ensures long and effortless observation and gives you the opportunity to experience as many impressive moments as possible until the rest of the day.
Ultra-FL Concept - Seeing all the details
When observing certain species that look very similar, like the Harriers, details make the difference in determining the different species. Small differences in the coloring, spot patterns, and length of the wing-feathers need to be taken in to account to differentiate for example a female from a male or a young bird from an adult bird.
Identifying these minute differences while the bird is in motion and often far away is challenging and difficult. The highest optical quality is needed to fulfill this task.
The Ultra-FL Concept with its specially designed high-end optics gives you the tool to succeed in this task. Highest resolution and contrast, color fidelity and minimal color fringing will make it all the easier in determining the right species.
