I have observed that even small size binocular works even perfectly just like bigger one so why buy big one which is difficult to carry . I have one with 12×30 which works fine and can come in pocket.

The Oscar Report says:

Now this is a good solid binocular video. I can attest that if your new to binoculars this gentleman is right about the shaking at higher than 10x. Personally, i find 10x too much shaking. I much, much, much prefer 8x for wildlife/birding and 7x for astronomy (getting a nice wide field of view of the stars in terrific). No need for tripod at 7x or 8x also.

Robin Mcewen says:

thanks Ron – very useful

Alpen Optics says:

Great site Ron…full of clear understandable information and your cute face!

Aurelie Nani says:

I like 10×50 handheld. The price of a good porro design 10×50 is like $150, to get the same quality in porro, it costs like $1000. People say the price difference is getting smaller, it’s not. It’s only for the small roof like 8×24 that roof is affordable.

Shaleen Dalal says:

Great video! Ron, could you please do a video on roof prism bins vs porro prism bins?

Leo DuBois says:

… Excellent and informative video. Thank You.

Robert Heron says:

Excellent video. Clear and concise. Thank you.

jarno timmermans says:

porro is better than roof if the price is the same. roofprism has 15% lower light than porro, so for a roof to be as good as a porro you have to have superior coating which costs a lot. Also porro has a wider view with the same diameter.

Mark Love says:

Thank you best video on the subject I’ve watched…

Diyor Nigmatov says:

Everything is simple. Thanks.
