Designed for long distance terrestrial use, the Helios Nitrosport 12×50 binoculars offer sensible 12x magnification in a quality waterproof body. Despite the high power, they also offer a reasonable 86m @ 1000m field of view.
These are a perfect solution for spotting wildlife on the far side of lakes or up mountains for example. Also great for plane and ship spotting. Unlike some 12x binoculars, eye relief remains good at 16mm for spectacle wearers.
If out in the field in all weather, you can relax knowing they are waterproof to IPX standard. In other words 1.5m for 30 minutes. At just under 800g they should be easy to hand hold for most people.
Despite the low cost, there is no cutting corners with the specs. Fully multi-coated optics with phase coated BaK-4 prisms
