Bushnell Powerview 16x50 Binoculars Review

I bought a pair of Bushnell Powerview 16x50 Binoculars a few years ago to replace a pair of lesser magnification. When I received these binoculars i was impressed with their quality and construction and they worked very well. The only problem that I had was that I was unable to hold them steady enough for any length of time to get a good picture. I had made the mistake of purchasing 16x magnification binoculars when I did not need that much.

Suggestion: Only buy 16x magnification glasses if you really need them, have really steady hands or can prop them up against something to give you the stability needed for a steady picture. For me, 12x50 would probably been a better choice with a larger field of view and more light.

 

              

                   

Product Description

Bushnell PowerView binoculars offer the best of both worlds, combining contemporary styling and design with traditional Bushnell quality and durability. This particular PowerView binocular offers a 16x magnification--among the most powerful in its class--and a 50mm objective diameter. The fully coated optics, meanwhile, guarantee superior light transmission and brightness, helping you see just about any target, whether you're searching for birds or trying to get a better view of the stage. And users will love the patented InstaFocus focusing system, which holds your subject in sharp focus with a touch of the fingertip. Additional features include a nonslip rubber armor housing that absorbs shock while providing a firm grip, a neck strap and a carrying case for easy transport, and 10mm of eye relief.
