With its many exciting features and quality the MINOX HG is today’s trailblazer that has all the quality and features potential to become tomorrow’s classic. MINOX’s ultimate aim was to ensure performance at the highest level when they developed and designed their new HG binoculars. The German engineers in Wetzlar Germany have created High-Grade-Sport optics with the best possible performance in every area that defines a quality binocular. By using special optical glass from German glass specialists SCHOTT AG a newly developed optical system provides a fascinatingly high-level of light transmission which is bound to be highly rated for brightness and contrast. With their sleek body design and magnesium housing the HG binoculars are real lightweights at the top end of the range and along with their beautiful cosmetics and ergonomics they ensure the end user will enjoy a satisfying new experience when using the all new Minox HG binoculars. Apart from optics Minox has also installed a “first” as the innovative QCF focusing now makes it possible to take exact distance readings from a scale on the focusing wheel an often-looked-for feature on binoculars.With these exciting features and given quality the MINOX HG is today’s trailblazer that has all the quality and features potential to become tomorrow’s classic.Top quality light transmission is an essential mark of quality in binoculars. MINOX engineers developed the innovative M*-coating of the lenses which consists of up to 21 different layers on the glass surfaces adapting the various wavelengths of the visible light. This increases the overall light transmission to an impressive 92 percent while improving brightness contrast detail and color-rendering significantly. Another benefit is a completely new optical system designed by our in-house experts with internal anti-reflection and anti-glare coatings to help improve contrast. The four models an 8.5 x 43 10 x 43 8.5 x 52 and 10 x 52 feature aspherical lenses to enhance the contrast and sharpness of the image from center to edge. To provide a reliable and durable protection against internal corrosion and fogging the binoculars are filled with state-of-the-art Argon gas.Another milestone is the mirroring of the roof prisms through the MinoBright technology. This silver-based coating guarantees an improvement of up to 99.8 percent efficiency of the light reflected at the mirror surface. This is yet another improvement towards better light transmission within the system of the HG-binoculars. The high-tech optical glass is “Made in Germany” by the Mainz based SCHOTT AG which belongs entirely to Carl-Zeiss-Stifung which was founded by Ernst Abbe. High technology originating from German glass pioneers used for innovative optical products by the Wetzlar-based optic specialists. All of the expertise from MINOX a trusted industry pioneer is combined in this high-quality product.Better and more advanced handling is achieved through the Quick-Close-Focus (QCF) developed and patented by MINOX. With just one turn of the focusing wheel the HG-binoculars can be adjusted from close-up to infinity. This one turn allows fast focusing close-up and a more precise focusing for longer distances. With the aid of a scale on the central focusing wheel the distance to the object in focus is indicated to the user. This additional feature makes these HG-binoculars a reliable distance rangefinder.Despite all their features the new MINOX HG-binoculars weigh just 650 grams. This puts them amongst the very best lightweights at the top end of the range. The sleek body design with its protective rubber armoring was designed and fitted around the natural position of the hand. The weight was reduced considerably by using a magnesium alloy which is increasingly used in aircraft construction. With its much lower density compared with aluminum and its extreme durability magnesium is a revolutionary material for modern tough housings of binoculars. The eyepieces are fitted with twist-up eye cups with four click-stop positions. This gives more freedom for an individual’s own eye-relief settings. The design of the large metal focusing wheel is both attractive and functional. Equipped with a cross-knurl like the diopter-adjustment providing a very good grip.MINOX HG-binoculars come complete with an exclusive case and a neoprene strap.

As if cast from the same mould the MINOX BD 8 x 44 BP and BD 10 x 44 BP binoculars are hard to tell apart and feature a striking and unmistakable blend of all MINOX competences in leading-edge optical technology. Enhanced three-dimensional imaging an exceptional light transmission of 94.5 percent as well as an extremely compact design make these binoculars the ideal companion for every field of nature observation.The Porro prism offers clear advantages over roof prisms especially the higher light transmission as less light is lost in the optical path through reflection on the way to the eye. Nevertheless this design has been somewhat neglected over recent years. The use of Porro prisms always implies increased weight and comparatively larger dimensions of the binoculars. As a specialist for the miniaturization of optical equipment MINOX has been able to develop compact Porro binoculars minimizing these familiar weak points and maximizing the strong ones.Only binoculars fitted with Porro prisms are able to provide the user with an enhanced three-dimensional shape or 3D-effect of the object in view this being based on the increased objective lens spacing. With this almost three-dimensional imaging it is a lot easier to exactly estimate the position and distance of the objects in the field of view — something hunters or those practicing water sports will rate very highly. Besides this the short and compact design offers clear-cut advantages in handling particularly when every second counts. When the observer views an object with the naked eye he or she can literally pick up one of the MINOX Porro binoculars at the turn of the wrist immediately capture the object close up and then put the binoculars back down standing on the objective lenses and safe from tipping over.The elegant and modern design of the sturdy metal housing is both innovative and ergonomic just like the focusing system which is one of MINOX’s own developments: for the first time in Porro binoculars an internal focusing with central focusing is used instead of the usual individual eyepiece adjustment. This is where the large focusing wheel is also used for diopter adjustments. Once adjusted to the user’s eye the correction is stored and protected against any unintentional resetting.Standards are again set by the quality of the optical system. High contrast neutral color rendition and maximum resolution of the images are striking features in this respect. An innovative sealing technology is another feature of these MINOX Porro binoculars. The BD 8 x 44 BP is protected against the penetration of water at a pressure of up to 0.5 bar or comparatively at a water depth of five meters. A noble argon gas-filling on the inside also protects the inner glass-air surfaces against corrosion and fogging enabling the optical system to remain ready for action at all times even under extreme temperature fluctuations. With extended eye relief people wearing glasses can also enjoy the full field-of-view – for easier adjustment the 8 x 44 is additionally fitted with twist-up eyecups with click-stops.The scope of delivery includes a Neoprene neck strap and a nylon case.
