About the Kowa YF30 8x30 Binoculars...
The Kowa YF 8x30 Binocular (Black) from Kowa Sporting Optics have high end optical features at a low end price. Full multi-coating ensures crisp, clear images with maximum brightness. The optical enhancements of these Kowa Binoculars were engineered in without sacrificing the nitrogen filled waterproofing and fogproofing. A stylish and smooth, curving body design with appropriately placed hand-holds make this Kowa Binocular a visually pleasing item both to look through and look at.
The Kowa YF 8x30 Binocular features twist-up eyecups to customize the Kowa Binocular to personal preference with or without eye or sunglasses and rubber armoring provides a secure and comfortable grip, as well as added shock-resistance. The Porro prism design offers enhanced three-dimensional imaging, less light loss and generally sharper images.
All lenses and prisms of the Kowa YF 8x30 Binocular are fully multi-coated. In addition, the roof prism (SV Series) is phase coated and has a highly reflective coating that minimizes the loss of light and produces a clear visual range and sharp image. Even though costs were reduced through simultaneous product development and the implementation of an objective focus mechanism (SV 32/42), the superior optical performance of this Kowa Binocular was maintained without sacrificing important features like being waterproof and dry nitrogen gas filled.
The lightweight design of the Kowa YF 8x30 Binocular allows for extended use in the field. Even with a large 50mm objective lens, the weight of the SV 50 at 740g (10x model) is on par with most 42mm class binoculars. You can enjoy the overwhelming brightness of a 50mm lens with the weight of a 42mm class binocular. With a weight under 500g, the Kowa Binoculars YF Series is ideal for children and women.
