Steiner Military 8×30 Laser Rangefinder Binocular is a unique military-grade lightweight laser range finding device. The built-in laser range finder utilizes an eye-safe invisible rangefinder laser in the left half of the unit.
This binocular is based on a true Porro Prism system, perfected and sophisticated by Steiner over many years and offering the most powerful optics magnification possible in compact binoculars.
Steiner Military LRF 8×30 Binocular has a wide measurement range from 20 yards to 1,600 yards. In sunshine and good visibility, the device’s accuracy is within about one-half of 1% to 1,600 yards.
This Steiner Binocular with Rangefinder is Fog proof and is superior to similar roof-prism binoculars because it loses less light and provides a clear image reproduction.
This innovative military-based design is armored with Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) making the Steiner 8×30 Rangefinder Binocular remarkably rugged, yet surprisingly light in weight.
Features of The Steiner Military LRF 8×30 Binocular
The Steiner Military LRF 8×30 is a midrange binocular for outdoor activities especially for hunting, shooting, etc. Here are some features, so you can get a clearer idea about what it offers.
Lightweight and Ruggedness:
This ultra-durable RF Binocular has an amazing interior Makrolon housing that meets the highest requirements for reducing weight. The design is incredibly strong and of military quality to cope with the shocks and the most severe vibration, and always guarantees stability.
The design of Military LRF 8×30 is sleek and kind of old-school military style. Its only 2 pounds so easy to handle. The compact design moves the center of gravity to the user’s palm, which allows long observation periods without getting too tired.
It feels good in the hand and also comfortable to focus from different angles. No matter where you are, in the forest, near the rocks or on the boat it’s easier to work with this binocular.
Strong Rubber Armoring:
Every Steiner Military 8×30 RF Binocular with its non-slip protective armor and rubber covering gives perfect protection in the rain, the cold or heat, seawater, and gives protection from environmental damage. The rubber- adhesion is extremely durable and resistant to oil, saltwater, and acid. This rubber cover is non-slip so it gives a firm grip to use it securely and comfortably.
Porro Prism systems are used in almost all high-quality binoculars. This system creates a perfect three-dimensional image design and increases transparency. STEINER Military RF Binoculars provides a greater sharper depth since the two objective lenses are further apart. This device has a significant advantage that the viewer can clearly judge the distance whether an object is behind or in front of the other.
Nitrogen Pressure Filling
Steiner RF military binoculars are the only ones that have a two-way valve system, which means that before filling the binoculars with nitrogen, natural air and moister inside is sucked out, and when there is a vacuum the dry nitrogen is blown in. There is no fogging with this high-tech solution as it completely prevents condensation inside the binoculars.
Only this method guarantees no condensation of the binoculars at changing temperatures and differences in altitude. Even temperature fluctuations between -40 ° C and + 80 ° C have not negatively affected the functionality of these RF binoculars with nitrogen.
The waterproof/watertight pressure of 0.5 bars is ensured, corresponds to sealing water pressure, up to 5 m water depth. A special sealing technology protects the optical high-end external influences. No dust, no dirt and no moisture can penetrate the Steiner binoculars.
Individual Eyepiece Focus:
The goal of this laser RF single eye makes for particularly comfortable observation and if both eyes have the same dioptric strength, simply set the two setting rings on the eyecups to “0” and you will see clearly from 20m to infinity.
Multi-layered Lenses offers an exceptional quality of vision with the incredibly high light transmission. All lenses and prisms are manufactured with the highest precision and are specially coated and deliver optimal observational results. Such state-of-the-art optical technology guarantees bright images with high contrast and with a definition of natural color strongly contoured.
