Eyecups on Binoculars

 

 

Consider the small matter of eyecups. A few years ago, nearly all binoculars accommodated eyeglass wearers with folding rubber eyecups. But for birders who share their binoculars, rubber eyecups cause trouble. Most require a bit of wrestling to fold them up or down, costing several seconds each time the binoculars change hands. That can make you miss the bird.

Today, top-quality roof prism binoculars have eyecups that neatly slide in and out, or they have twist up eyecups, letting the user dial exactly the needed amount of eyecup extension. Twist-ups also maintain their position without collapsing at crucial moments.

Swarovski ELA great improvement, we think.
