The new MINOX HG 8x33 binocular is the perfect answer for those who want all of the outstanding features offered by the first four HG models but with less size. Even with all of the same benefits, this new model is much smaller (4-15/16"x5"x2") and is a lightweight 21.3 oz., ideal for those who want to travel light but still enjoy all the advantages of superior binocular performance. The 8x33 field of view is 395 feet at 1,000 yards, and it has a close-focusing distance of just 2 yards. One of its most significant qualities is extremely high light transmission - 92 percent, ensuring stunning brightness, contrast and color rendering, even at dawn and dusk. HG binoculars have ergonomically shaped magnesium bodies with rubber-coated armor for a comfortable grip, and they are waterproof to 16 feet. Another performance-enhancing feature is the patented MINOX QCF system - an innovative quick close-focus capability that makes it possible to take exact distance readings from a scale on the focusing wheel. Other key features include a precise, lockable diopter ring; aspherical lenses that eliminate a blurred view in marginal ranges; and twist-up eye cups with four click stops for improved adjustment to different eye reliefs.
