Since then, Nikon has continued to build on the knowhow of generations of optical and precision technology experts with an enduring passion for quality and innovation. Day in and day out, our products are tested in the world's most demanding environments. Using Nikon cameras and NIKKOR lenses, photographers around the globe capture moments that no one could otherwise envision.

While Nikon engineers of semiconductor-manufacturing equipment employ our optics to create the world's most precise instrumentation. For Nikon, delivering a peerless vision is second nature, strengthened over the decades through constant application.

At Nikon Sport Optics, our mission is not just to meet your demands, but to exceed your expectations.

Our commitment to deliver proven, superior products

Nikon has come up with a simple rule for designing and developing our sport optics products: apply the best materials, the strictest quality controls, the most environmentsustaining engineering and superior lens coating technologies to achieve the very finest optics. The benefits of this pledge have never been clearer. Maximum light transmission, superior resolution and better-defined contrast are balanced to perfection, free of aberration, in every stunning view. Because at the heart of each optical system is an invincible integrity that makes it what it is — a Nikon.

Large, diverse lineup to meet your every viewing need

Viewing distant subjects up-close with sport optics can be an exhilarating experience.

The optimum experience remains a subjective one, however, with countless variables.

That's why Nikon offers the most extensive line of binoculars and scopes on the market.

Binocular basics

Performance factors

Nikon offers an extensive lineup of binoculars — including several of the world´s most popular series — for a diverse range of applications.

Each model features various technical specifications that can help you in making the right selection. Magnification is usually considered most important, but field of view, brightness, ease of handling (weight, feel, ergonomics), suitability for eyeglass wearers and overall construction should also be taken into account.

Magnification

Magnification, represented by a numerical value, is the relationship between a subject´s actual proportions and its magnified size. With 7x magnification, for example, a subject

700 metres distant appears as it would when viewed from 100 metres with the naked eye. As a rule, magnifications of 6x to 10x are recommended for handheld outdoor use.

With magnifications of 12x or greater, any shaking by hand movement is more likely to create an unstable image and uncomfortable viewing.

Field of view

All binoculars use number codes to designate various specifications. In “8x40 8.8°”, for example, “8.8°” represents the real field of view, which is the angle of the viewing field measured from the central point of the objective lens. The apparent field of view, on the other hand, conveys how wide that field of view appears to the naked eye. The real field of view at 1,000 metres listed in the specifications is the width of the visible area at a distance of 1,000 metres.

125m

Apparent field of view Real field of view 8x binoculars

154m

* Apparent field of view is calculated based on the ISO 14132-1:2002 standard.

For details, see p 54.

Objective lens diameter

The objective lens diameter, combined with the quality of lens and prism coatings, determines the amount of light gathered to form an image. If you are regularly observing in poor light conditions, such as early dawn or dusk, or in forested areas, you may need a larger objective lens. But large-diameter objective lenses make binoculars heavier, so

50mm is the general limit for handheld use.

Exit pupil

The exit pupil is the image formed by the eyepiece lenses. The diameter of the exit pupil

(in mm) is the effective aperture divided by the magnification. The diameter of the human eye pupil varies from 2-3mm in daylight to 7mm in the dark. An exit pupil of 7mm gives maximum light to the dilated eye and is ideal for use in the twilight and at night.

Diameter of exit pupil 10mm pupil diameter of the binoculars and

7mm pupil diameter of a human eye

10mm

Brightness

The relative brightness value is obtained by squaring the diameter of the exit pupil. The greater the relative brightness, the brighter the image will be. However, this value does not correspond exactly to increases in brightness viewed with the naked eye because light coming through the binoculars is 100% effective only if the exit pupil is the same diameter as the pupil of the eye.

7mm

In daylight In darkness

Exit pupil diameter: 2.9mm

Pupil diameter of human eye: 2 to 3mm

Pupil diameter of human eye: 7mm

How to read the numerical information code for binoculars

All Nikon binoculars are designated with a numerical formula, such as “10x25 5.4°”.

The value “10x” indicates the magnification of the binoculars. If a person uses 10x binoculars to observe a wild bird from a distance of 100 metres, for example, it will appear to the observer as if he or she were viewing the bird from a distance of 10 metres (100 divided by 10 equals 10) with the naked eye.

The next number, “25”, tells you that the effective diameter of the objective lens is

25mm. The greater the diameter of the objective lens, the brighter your image will be with the same illumination. (Nikon´s superior lens coatings also play a vital role in improving lens brightness.) If the objective lens is too large, however, the binoculars will be heavy and may cause trembling of the hands.

Finally, the number “5.4°” represents the real field of view of the binoculars. This is the angle of the visible field, as measured from the centre of the objective lenses.

The bigger the value, the easier it is to locate an object.

Understanding the meaning of these numbers should provide you with greater freedom in selecting and using binoculars.

Check the letters in the name of any Nikon binoculars — they convey helpful information about each model.

Feature Icons

Roof (Dach) Prism Type

Binoculars that employ a roof (Dach) prism to rectify the image. "Dach" means roof in German. The optical path at the objective side and eyepiece side is virtually straight, making it possible for the binoculars to be compact and slim.

Porro Prism Type

Binoculars that employ a Porro prism, which was invented by Ignazio Porro in Italy. All of its reflective surfaces are completely reflective, so it loses no light and realises a bright field of view.

IF (Individual Focusing)

Binoculars that have an IF (Individual Focusing) mechanism. Focus the right and left eyes separately by rotating the dioptre adjustment ring located on the eyepiece. Structurally, the design easily maintains airtightness, making it suitable for waterproof models.

CF (Central Focusing)

Binoculars that have a CF (Central Focusing) mechanism. Focus both left and right eyes at the same time by rotating a central focusing ring. Superior operability.

ED Lens

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass is employed to correct chromatic aberration, which causes colour fringing.

Aspherical Lens

Provides sharp images up to the periphery while reducing image distortion.

Full Multilayer Coating

Multilayer coating is applied to transmission surfaces of all lenses and prisms to enhance light transmittance. Provides a brighter and sharper field of view.

Multilayer Coating

Multilayer coating is applied for increased light transmittance.

Wide Field of View

Wide field-of-view binoculars provide an apparent field of view over 60°.

*Apparent field of view is calculated based on the ISO 14132-1:2002 standard.

Long Eye Relief

High-eyepoint binoculars with eye relief of 15mm or longer. Eyeglass wearers can also obtain the field of view without vignetting.

Rubber Coating

Body is coated with rubber. It fits securely in your hands for comfortable holding.

Waterproof

Waterproof structure is employed. Nitrogen gas-filled models are resistant to fog and mould.

Vibration Reduction

Vibration Reduction function is incorporated to compensate vibration and provides a steady view for comfortable observation.

Application Icons

Birdwatching, nature watching

Binoculars with a wide field of view and 7x to 10x magnification are suited for general nature viewing. Observing whales or birds at a greater distance is more comfortable with 8x to 12x magnification models. For even closer views, Fieldscopes are recommended.

Outdoors, camping, hiking

Rugged outdoor activities demand portability and durability. Models that also feature rubber armouring and waterproofing are ideal when you're up against the elements. For early morning and evening use, binoculars with a large objective diameter and Nikon's multicoated lenses are recommended.

Stargazing

Astronomical observation requires a bright optical system with a large objective diameter and exit pupil. Waterproof and aberration-corrected binoculars are preferred.

Spectator sports

Binoculars that feature a wide field of view and 7x to 10x magnification are handy for fast-moving sports. Zoom-type binoculars are also convenient, as they enable quick and easy changes in magnification to suit the viewing situation.

Travelling

Compact, lightweight models with mid-range magnification and field of view are ideal for travelling.

Theatre

Compact models with magnification of 4x to 8x are recommended for theatre and concert use. To focus on a particular performer, 7x to 10x models are more appropriate.

Museum

For museums, choose compact, lightweight models with low magnification and a close focusing distance of less than 2m.

Marine sports, fishing

Waterproofing and durability are essential for these activities. Enhanced brightness and a wide field of view are desirable too. Models that feature vibration reduction are favoured for on-board use.

Maritime operations

For professional workplace usage such as sailing or marine observation. Waterproof, large-diameter binoculars are recommended.

Nikon’s legendary ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lenses

Nikon’s legendary ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lenses effectively compensate for chromatic aberrations to provide images of superior contrast and outstanding resolution.

Field-flattener lens system

Nikon’s field-flattener lens system technology minimises curvature of field — aberrations that occur when focusing on the centre of the field of view causing the periphery to go out of focus and vice versa — and delivers sharper, clearer images all the way to the lens periphery.

Dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coating

Dielectric high-reflective multilayer coating is applied to a roof prism unit that does not feature total internal reflection. This boosts light reflectivity of more than 99%

(designed value) for the full visible range, giving you clearer whites and a sharper, brighter, more natural vision across the entire field of view.

High Grade

When only superior performance will do

Among Nikon´s broad lineup of widely acclaimed binoculars, the six HG L series models are designed for exceptional performance and comfort.

Exacting lens and prism construction ensures sharper, brighter images to intensify your viewing experience. Other aspects, such as the finely tuned mechanics and optical design, work together to reveal subtle details you´d have otherwise missed.

For bright, high-contrast images

• Nikon’s original multilayer coating

Minimises flare and ghosts, for very high transmission across a wide range of wavelengths. The result: excellent contrast and colour reproduction.

• Phase correction coating

Corrects phase shifts caused when light reflects off the roof (Dach) prism.

Provides a high-contrast image by eliminating the reduction of resolution.

• High-reflection silver coating

Much greater reflectivity and much less light loss from the prism, compared with ordinary aluminium coating, for brighter images.

For sharp, undistorted images

• Field-flattener lens

Employed for eyepiece lens. Provides images that are sharp and clear all the way to the lens periphery.

• Distortion correction

Nikon’s outstanding optical design provides high-level distortion correction enabling sharp, undistorted images even at the viewing area periphery.

Easy to use

• Long eye relief design

Sophisticated design technology achieves a combination of long eye relief and small size.

• Soft-touch silicon rubber eyecup

• Turn-and-slide rubber eyecups with multi-click* facilitate easy positioning of eyes at the correct eyepoint

• Large focusing ring makes for easier operation

• Every model is waterproof up to 2m/6.6 ft. (3m/9.8 ft. for 8x20HG L DCF/10x25HG L DCF) for 5 minutes and fog-free, with O-ring seals and nitrogen gas

• Made with environment-friendly materials

Non-PVC (polyvinyl chloride) materials are used for the body, eyepiece lens cap, objective lens caps, case and wide strap; Eco-glass optics free of lead and arsenic are used for all lenses and prisms

• Can be fixed to a tripod using optional tripod adaptor*

(see p 54)

*Except 8x20HG L DCF/10x25HG L DCF.

Light transmission rates

Generally speaking, the higher the light transmission rate of a lens, the brighter and clearer your image will be, with less blur and ghosts. Each of Nikon’s highgrade binocular models features a high light transmission rate thanks to our multilayer-coated lenses and prisms.

Nikon EDG Fieldscopes deliver a spectacular field of view

In the pursuit of innovation, Nikon’s cutting-edge technology has enabled the incorporation of a lens-shift type VR (Vibration

Reduction) system into fieldscopes for the first time in the world* — EDG VR Fieldscopes. Sophisticated optical technologies complement superb mechanical functions in EDG Fieldscopes, all were created to attain clear-cut superiority for both observation and digiscoping applications. Following a comprehensive series of CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) simulations and data analyses, our EDG design engineers built numerous prototypes. These efforts realised a tough, finely balanced structure; a large-diameter objective lens that delivers brighter images; a large focusing ring for smooth operation even during digiscoping; and a tripod mount that features finely tuned weight balance adjustments. The result is exquisite, clear viewing to the very edge of your field of view.

*As of October, 2011.

Values for Apparent Field of View

With the conventional method used previously, the apparent field of view was calculated by multiplying the real field of view by the binocular magnification. After revision, Nikon’s figures are now based on the ISO 14132-1:2002 standard, and obtained by the following formula: tan ω’ =

Γ

x tan ω

Apparent field of view: 2ω’

Real field of view: 2ω

Magnification:

Γ

For example, the apparent field of view of 8x binoculars with an 8.8° real field of view is as follows:

2ω’ = 2 x tan-

= 2 x tan-

= 63.2°

1

1 (

Γ

x tan ω)

(8 x tan 4.4°)

125m

1,000m

2ω’ = 63.2°

2ω = 8.8°

Γ=8

Referring to the ISO 14132-2:2002 standard that was established at the same time as the abovementioned ISO 14132-1:2002, binoculars that provide an apparent field of view over 60˚ are considered wide-viewfield binoculars.
