The image quality produced by the EL binoculars with the revolutionary SWAROVISION TECHNOLOGY from SWAROVSKI OPTIK is without equal. The combination of field flattener lenses and HD optic ensures impressive image resolution over the entire field of view thus providing outstanding contrast even when observing at dusk. Eyeglass-wearers also benefit from the full wide-angle field of view due to the large eye relief.
FIELD FLATTENER LENSES – CONTRAST RIGHT UP TO THE IMAGE EDGE
The image focus quality of the EL has never before been achieved in any binoculars. The field flattener lenses produce a virtually flat image. As a result, even the finest structures and smallest details are reproduced with razor-sharp clarity right up to the image edge.
For the first time ever, the observer obtains a perfect image with no annoying distortions. The outstanding image quality over the entire field of view means less refocusing and allows you to identify every detail at lightning speed. Your peripheral vision will reveal small movements and color and pattern definition at the edges of the image with greater ease.
HIGH-DEFINITION – FOR MAXIMUM CONTRAST
The fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize color-fringing (chromatic aberration) for contrast-rich images with razor-sharp outlines.
As a result, significant improvements in resolution and contrast are achieved in comparison with binoculars made with conventional grades of glass. Experience completely new insights into nature’s world of shapes and colors.
GREATER EYE RELIEF – 100% FIELD OF VIEW FOR EYEGLASS-WEARERS
In addition, the new EL 42 stands out by comparison with other binoculars due to a larger eye relief of the exit pupil. This enables even eyeglasswearers to survey the entire wide-angle field of view and enjoy the new EL’s unique edge sharpness. The removable twist-in eyecups are individually adjustable in three stages. In addition to the maximum position (completely twisted out) and the setting for eyeglass-wearers (completely twisted in), the eyecups also have a snap-in intermediate stage.
OPTIMIZED COATING – FOR MAXIMUM COLOR FIDELITY
The enhanced coatings of the lenses and prisms (SWARODUR, SWAROTOP, SWAROBRIGHT) in the EL guarantee absolutely lifelike color reproduction and outstanding image brightness for spectacular observation experiences even at dusk.
The SWAROCLEAN coating on the outer surface of the lens ensures a non-stick effect with obvious cleaning advantages for dirt and deposits including water marks, insect repellents and tree resin.
