The Powerview is a folding roof-prism compact that will fit in a shirt pocket. Magnification is 8x, which with the 21mm objective lenses and pretty basic lens coatings gives a workable view under daylight conditions. These are perfect binoculars for anyone who may be rough on their gear – good as first binoculars for someone just starting out, or for travel, where theft or loss is often a concern.

  • The Powerview is centre-focusing, and has the usual diopter adjustment to compensate if your eyes are different strengths
  • Ocular lenses are fairly small, and the small exit pupil (2.6mm) and relatively short eye relief prevent these binoculars from being used comfortably with glasses on – but they still deliver a lot for the price
