Jonathan and Roseann have been using field optics professionally for over 35 years—and were early fans of Swarovski Optik: Jonathan used an early pair of 10×50 Habichts in his sea kayaking business in the 1990s. They will walk you through all the elements of what makes a quality pair of binoculars or spotting scope, and what is worth paying for—or not.
Using Swarovski, Leica, and a few other brands as examples, they will also make recommendations based on workshop attendees’ field uses (we’ll send you a questionnaire before the workshop).
Field optics are vital tools for naturalists and explorers. But the range of options can be confusing:
Porro or roof prism?
Best magnification / lens diameter combo?
Field of view?
What is meant by BaK4 glass? Flat field? Multi-coating?
This workshop is suitable for anyone who uses or is considering buying field optics: naturalists, travelers, explorers, birdwatchers, and hunters.
An interactive Q & A session is included, with Ben Lizdas of Swarovski Optik.
Length: 1.5 hours
