Feature: Porro prism (BaK4)
We know the size of these binoculars may seem to be compromised, but in order to showcase the highlights of a porro prism, the compromise is worth it. Named after the Italian optician who patented this system, porro prism binoculars make us of a double prism Z-shaped configuration to show the image.
By separating the two lenses the binoculars’ size results increased, but the advantage is remarkable. Porro binoculars have the additional advantage of folding the optical path so that the physical length of the binoculars is less than the focal length of the object. Simply speaking, it gives a better depth perception, a “must –have” in any kind of activity or observation.
Despite this, Artos binoculars have been provided with some extra features in order to give you the comfort of a very easy grip.
In this sense, the large center focus ring of these models offer the advantage of easy and simultaneous adjustments.
An extra feature that gives excellent operability to standard but high quality binoculars.
High eye relief and twist-up eye cups
Binoculars with an eye relief greater than 15mm are considered as ‘providing high eye relief. A high eye relief binocular model helps to avoid tiring eyes even in the case of prolonged usage, and provides a large field of view also while using eyeglasses.
Also, the twist-up eyecups make these binoculars even easier to use, as you can regulate them according to your needs to have the large field of view you desire.
High water and shock resistance
Last but not least for Artos series, is a high water and shock resistance. These binoculars have been designed to prevent water to get inside the lens barrel even in the most difficult weather conditions, and the nitrogen filling inside of the body prevents fogging too.
The durable die-cast aluminum body represents the ultimate choice for those customers who want to enjoy the highest grade of outdoor watching experience.
