Leupold’s brand new laser rangefinding binocular, the RBX-3000 TBR/W, boasts the ability to measure distances as great as 3,000 yards with the company’s True Ballistic Range/Wind (TBR/W) technology.
The world is so full of binoculars these days the choices become bewildering, especially since most hunters can’t afford to spend more than $2,000 on a super-binocular. Luckily, the quality of moderately priced binoculars keeps improving, and a good example is the new, made-in-America Trijicon HD 8x42.
Swarovski Optik has announced the release of its improved EL binocular family, featuring SWAROVISION technology. The new models feature the inclusion of the company's FieldPro package and other features. They new binos are expected to be available on shelves in the U.S. and Canada by November 2015.
Bushnell has introduced two new night vision binoculars in the company's Equinox Z product line. The digital night vision bios are designed to offer top-of-the-line optical clarity, illumination and field of view. Both units will feature digital zoom, image capture and video recording abilities.
