The Expert VM 8x40 Marine meets the requirements of outdoor enthusiasts, such as hunters, fishermen, gamekeepers, zoologists, ornithologists and nature conservation specialists, or anyone who use optics for professional purposes.
The progressive optical system, based on an innovative porro prism design, is encased in a solid durable body and is the backbone of the Expert.
A distinctive feature of this model is the yellow of the lens caps and eyepiece areas designed to make the binoculars more visible.
The non-axial construction (ie both optical channels are in a single body), is very reliable; the unit is highly resistant to shock loadings and vibration.
The Expert’s carbon body is light whilst at the same time being made from one of the strongest composite materials.
This device is IEC60529 IPX7 rated. The hermetically sealed body protects the binocular from rain, the ingress of a large body of water, such as a wave breaking over them, or even total immersion; it can withstand accidental immersion in 1 m of water for up to 30 minutes.
The nitrogen purged optical system prevents lenses from fogging in case of a sudden temperature drop.
Exterior flat protective filters, installed in front of the objective lenses, shield the optics from sand, dust and moisture.
The Expert VM 8x40 Marine features high resolution optics, multicoated lenses that guarantee image clarity, realistic colour rendition and the specially developed eyepiece provides high definition.
It has an optimum magnification for mobile field use and its light gathering ability ensures trouble free operation both in the daytime and at twilight.
This variant of the Expert 8x40 Marine offers viewing modes that can be changed by means of two switchable internal filters.
The Contrast Mode is suitable for twilight conditions, giving enhanced image contrast and visual fog reduction.
Operation in the Reflection Mode minimizes, or neutralizes, the dazzling effect of light reflected from non-metallic surfaces such as water, snow, ice and glass.
Every thing has been thoughtfully designed in this model. The eyepieces are adjustable, allowing a comfortable interpupillary setting.
The ergonomic eyecups protect the eye against lateral ambient light.
The Eclipse-M lens caps are permanently connected to the binocular body so cannot be lost and they also protect the front optics from raindrops.
The neck strap is attached to the binocular and can be immediately removed if necessary.
