More about our range of zoom binoculars
What are zoom binoculars for?
Zoom binoculars are particularly useful in a variety of situations where an interchangeable medium-to-long-range view is desired.
For example, a large field of view is great for scanning a landscape, for birds, animals, boats or at sporting events. Being able to zoom means that you don’t need to switch to another pair of binos to hone in once you spot something!
How do zoom binoculars work?
Zoom binoculars have moving lenses in each eyepiece. As you scroll the zoom wheel you are moving the internal lenses just like in a telescope.
Non-zoom binoculars have two numbers in their name. The first is the magnification, expressed as 10X, 20X, 50X and so on. This is the magnification beyond what your naked eye provides. The second is the objective lens diameter.
With zoom binoculars, the magnification ‘range’ is expressed with a hyphen. For example 8-24X.
Do I need zoom binoculars?
Zoom binoculars obviously offer great features, allowing you to track, follow and zoom in on subjects without needing multiple pairs. The cost to this is often there is a loss of quality and additional moving parts to go wrong. Nevertheless, many of our customers love them, and so do we!
Browse Binoculars by Size
When buying a pair of binoculars you will soon notice that each pair has a set of two numbers following their name, such as “7x50” or “8x32”. The first figure is the magnification, which indicates the number of times larger an object will appear when viewed. The second figure indicates the size of the object lens in mm; the larger it is, the brighter the images will seem. View our Binoculars Buying Guide for more information »
