HD binoculars vs regular binoculars
I observe that it seems quite rare to get a detailed description of the various types of binoculars on our search engines. like every other technological products research and information need to be gathered and analyzed before choosing a binocular to avoid unsatisfactory service and low quality. You may probably have to choose between HD binoculars and regular binoculars. At that point, you’ll definitely have to review their features and make the comparison. This article is focused on comparing the features of HD binoculars against other regular compact binoculars.
HD binoculars has a high magnification of usually more than 10× more than the original magnitude which give it a long range scope while maintaining clarity. The high-definition of the vertical line make object to remain sharp and outlined during long distance observation. Also, image concentration is preserved when magnifying with HD binoculars
While regular binoculars often have a low magnifying ratio which limit the view range to few hundred yards with low clarity as range increases.
The use of optical glass for lensing of HD binoculars enhance the transmission of light into the compartment, to give edge-edge excellent imagery with superb resolution. Multilayer coating is made on the lenses to improve the glaring omission ability of the binoculars.
While regular binoculars often use plastic lenses that give low quality imagery. The plastic lensing is to make the binoculars rugged for special purpose like climbing.
HD binoculars feature BAK-4 prisms that deliver 3- dimensional sharp Imagery. It accommodates more light to give bright image quality, a perfect companion for HD adventure. Contrarily, the prisms used in most regular binoculars are BK-7 prisms with high refraction and consequently tend to square off image sides.
Close Focus Distance
HD binoculars are constructed for low CFD (close focus distance) which makes it possible to view near objects as close as 0.5 meter. It also allows the viewing of object that nearly invisible to naked eyes. While most regular binoculars have high CFD of 30 meters that makes observation of very close object impossible or blurred with square edge imagery.
The diameter of objective piece also determine the amount of light gather into binoculars for image reconstruction. HD binoculars features large objective lens that focus more light and give the viewer sharp imagery with high resolution.
While the diameter of the objective piece of a non HD, regular binoculars is of relatively small diameter due to the lensing arrangement. This make the resolution of image miserable in covered area.
Other distinctive features of HD binoculars are:
- Modified eyes relief adjustment
- It supports mounted accessory without affecting it imagery
- Layered coating and water repelling optics.
- Di-electric coating of prism to increase reflectiveness.
The above comparison shown that HD binoculars has superior features to regular binoculars. The improvement in features is solely aimed to deliver exact and realistic imagery regardless of range and light I intensity.
Also, the component of the latest HD binoculars has been replaced with lighter and modified material to reduce weight. This will enhance the handling and comfortable use of the device.
