I own several monoculars and this is by far the best. The image quality is very good for a product of this size. The small field of view is not great for sporting events where the subjects are in motion, but it's a great item for viewing still and slow moving objects. The minimal weight and small size make it easy to take along on almost any outdoor activity. I particularly like the tripod mounting capability. I can screw it into the camera mount on my walking pole for a stable view at 30X.Was this helpful?

I am an individual who is visually impaired, and I rely on monoculars to read signs, signals, menus, cell phones, and to look at scenery. I use them at the boundaries of their functionality--difficult lighting, close focus, etc, and this one seems like a great monocular for people who want to look at distant objects with large magnification, but not some of the other things like close focus or low light conditions. The Basics: The monocular is the same size as a stanrard 10-power monocular. There are two dials to adjust--one is the focus and the other is the zoom mechanism. You'll notice once you hack open the plastic shield packaging that the monocular comes with a carrying case, a short (4 inches or so) strap, and a lens cleaning cloth. When you look through the monocular, the focus is relatively easy to manipulate, but it really requires 2 hands to operate this unit because the focus and the zoom are in places where the human hand cannot manipulate them without a second hand to hold the monocular steady. Also, you should be used to looking through these monoculars, as the 30x rating means that you'll need a steady hand at full magnification. I do find the unit to be visually attractive, and there is a mount for a tripod. The Good: Small size and lite weight makes this a great scope for birdwatching or camping. If you've got a steady hand, this will be a great buy. The image is reasonably bright, but if you want real brightness from a 30x scope, you're going to have to get…Was this helpful?
