Swarovski Binoculars

Swarovski Optik binoculars turn every moment into an experience. Each pair is set the highest standards in terms of optics, design, functionality, and quality. Many details are crucial, especially out birdwatching, when you’re on the lookout and every second counts as a bird flits across the treetops. But most details are invisible to the naked eye.

Swarovski binoculars will reveal these details to you, and much more: they focus your view on the beauty of nature. Made in Austria, Swarovski has a reputation for taking care of their customers. You can be assured that if your binoculars ever develop a fault or need repair, you will be offered service second-to-none to quickly get your binoculars back in working order.

Whether you need binoculars for birding, whale watching, astronomy, or just as a travelling companion, we have the perfect binocular for you.

Choosing your binoculars

  • Magnification: Magnification is the factor by which an object appears closer than it actually is. Looking through the long-range optical device changes the perception – the higher the magnification, the closer the animal appears to be and the more details you can identify. However, high magnification means a smaller field of view.

    Binoculars with a 10x magnification will optically magnify a bird that is 100 meters away, making it appear as if it is just 10 meters away if viewed with the naked eye. SWAROVSKI OPTIK binoculars are available with up to 12x magnification. Higher magnification would make handling more difficult, as well as hampering stable and steady observation through the Binoculars.

    Thanks to perfect ergonomics and balance, today’s technologies and developments make it possible to achieve a stable and steadier image even with higher magnifications.
  • Field of View: The Objective lens is – in contrast to the Eyepiece - the side of the long-range optical instrument facing the object. The Objective lens diameter determines how much light can enter the optics, which makes it a key factor in the instrument’s performance, especially in poor light conditions. This means: the larger the objective lens diameter, the more light the objective lens can capture and the lighter the image appears. The poorer the light conditions – for example, at twilight – the larger the objective lens diameter should be.
  • Objective Lens Diameter: The field of view is the section of the image that can be seen through the optics. As a rule of thumb: the higher the magnification, the smaller the field of view. Binoculars have a larger field of view in comparison to a spotting scope, which means you can see a large area. Spotting scopes have a higher magnification, which makes the field of view much smaller, but you can see more detail.

    The size of the field of view is usually specified in meters at a range of 1,000 meters (3280 ft). Through binoculars with a field of view of 150/1000 m, the viewer will therefore see a 150 meter (492 ft) wide circular image at a range of 1,000 meters (3280 ft).
