  • Delivery and packaging:

At a price of under a $100, Nikon binoculars are quite affordable for everyone. The pictures we found on the web convinced us to include the model in our test. So, we ordered the Nikon Aculon binoculars and received it two days later.

The packaging of the binoculars was optimal, and both the dealer and the manufacturer obviously did their best to ensure that the Nikon Aculon arrived safely to you. After you opened the package, you had a robust and solid binoculars in great shape on your hands.

  • Handling:

The rubber armoring ensures that the binoculars are particularly shock and scratch resistant and can easily withstand a drop from a low height without significant damages. 

However, there are no typical gum pimples that would further enhance the grip. Thanks to the rubber eyecups which allows a simple, fast and comfortable positioning of the eyes, looking through the lenses is very pleasant. In addition, easy focusing is enhanced by both lenses of the binoculars. 

The handling and ergonomics of the Nikon Aculon binoculars are nicely designed. Even when used hurriedly, there are no pressure points on the nose. Neither fingers nor eyepieces are unnecessarily misaligned; the adjustment wheels are easily accessible with the middle finger on the top or the thumb on the bottom of the binocular.

  • Performance:

The Nikon Aculon is a compact binocular which can be folded. The reasonable weight of 272 grams is especially important if you want to use it for a long period. The settings can be adjusted very easily. Operation with one hand is possible, as all the parts harmonize perfectly.

However, due to the low weight, some practice is necessary before a user is able to achieve very sharp pictures. Because it’s difficult to eliminate shakes during hands-free usage completely. It is therefore recommended that you practice for some time with binoculars before you use it for important and professional purposes.

  • Included Accessories:

In addition to the binoculars, the Nikon Aculon A30 also comes with a high-quality bag for storage and transport. It offers sufficient space to easily and quickly pack the binoculars, and can even be attached to a belt by means of a loop. 

There is a carrying strap, which can be simply wrapped around the neck or the shoulder comfortably without being overly noticeable. Unfortunately, a second shorter hand strap which can be easily attached to the binoculars is not available. So, you have to put the binocular in a bag again rather than simply hang it on your wrist.
