Binoculars - The Essential Birding Tool

The goal of this presentation is to help the novice wanting to buy a first pair of binoculars or an experienced birder looking to upgrade. We will review the different styles available and provide the pros and cons, ensure you understand what all the technical numbers mean and how they can affect your decision and most importantly the steps you should take to ensure you purchase binoculars that will make you happy during your birding adventures

They sell nine brands and over sixty models of binoculars, five brands and over thirty models of spotting scopes, four tripod brands and other optics accessories. They help customers pick the right optics by leading them through an evaluation process which guides them to best pair for their needs.
