Binoculars from Nikon

Information about the Nikon company

Nikon was founded in 1917 under the name Nippon Kogaku K.K. to produce optical war equipment for Germany. Nikon started its career with the development and production of binoculars and telescopes. The name Nikon was not officially introduced until 1946, and this incorporation of the name was followed shortly afterwards by the introduction of the first binoculars. The experiences of the past helped Nikon to become one of the world's leading manufacturers of binoculars / optical glass. Few people still know that Nikon makes binoculars & telescopes and think first of the company's SLR cameras, system cameras or lenses . Nikon also offers other special products in a few other countries, such as microscopes or spectacle lenses.

What are binoculars for?

Binoculars are used for a variety of purposes, whether at the opera, in the theater, at concerts, for navigation at sea or for reconnaissance of troop movements. The areas of application are even more varied than those already mentioned. Binoculars are the perfect companion for an observer, because binoculars offer the opportunity to observe distant processes, objects or animals without disturbing them.

Nikon offers a selection of binoculars in its product series for beginners, advanced users and professionals! The wide range of different series can quickly overwhelm a layman, especially at the beginning, due to the large selection of different magnifications and designations.

You will find that many product ranges are suitable for most different areas of use! Most binoculars differ in the magnification and coating of the lenses, as well as in some of the functions.

The Prostaff binoculars range is particularly characterized by the wide field of view of the binoculars. Another quality factor of the Prostaff range is the construction, which is waterproof and guarantees fog-free vision. The silver alloy of the prism mirror coating offers a bright and brilliant view. The compactness of the binoculars makes them the perfect companion for your next trip or adventure.

The Monarch binoculars: The ED glass used reduces chromatic aberrations and allows the viewer to observe the plumage of the world's most beautiful birds in their true brilliance. The other processing features of the Monarch binoculars improve the perception of colors, since glass normally distorts the natural colors, the processing of the Nikon binoculars corrects to ensure the most natural colors and intense contrasts possible.

The Aculon binoculars: The Aculon binoculars are available in a compact size as well as in a large version. The compact size makes the Aculon binoculars particularly attractive for use at concerts, plays, operas and musicals. The easy handling of the compact Aculon binoculars also makes them particularly attractive. The Aculon A211 series is aimed at ambitious & professional users, so the binoculars are equipped with a tripod thread and offer a zoom to zoom in even closer to the object and at the same time offer greater flexibility.

The Sportstar EX model series: The particularly weatherproof range of binoculars for sporting use, whether for archery, trekking, nature observation or other sporting events. The binoculars in the Sportstar EX series offer water resistance of up to 2m for 5 minutes, as well as a fog-free view thanks to the nitrogen filling in the binoculars. The Sportstar Zoom 8 binoculars can be used particularly flexibly, with a zoom of 8x - 24x, the special feature being that the zoom is infinitely variable. With these binoculars you can perfectly enjoy sporting events and also zoom in on the player's smile.
