DDoptics binoculars for bird watching impress with their excellent image brilliance and color fidelity. When a special bird sits in front of you in the wild, you want to see it in all its glory.
For occasional observations, a reasonably priced, smaller pair of binoculars in the mid-range price segment, such as one of our popular Kolibri binoculars, already offers amazing images. For bird watchers with the highest demands, a model from our EDX model series, specially designed for the high demands of ornithologists, is ideal.
For this reason, high-performance binoculars with high contrast and color fidelity are required for ornithology. A good pair of binoculars for bird watching enables close-up observations that are true to detail, so that the various details can be distinguished and the play of colors of the plumage can be perceived in all its glory.
What are the best binoculars for bird watching?
Field of View & Focus
A wider field of view offers the advantage of easily following fast-moving birds. The speed with which you can focus on the moving object is also relevant (smooth focusing wheel on binoculars).
Experience has shown that a magnification of 8x to 10x is the most common choice for most bird lovers and ornithologists. Binoculars with 10x magnification work well in all types of terrain, cover a variety of situations and give deep insight into details. For binoculars with low magnification, such as with binoculars 7x50, the detail recognition and thus the viewing experience for bird watching is limited. When choosing the magnification of your binoculars, remember that the higher the magnification of your binoculars, the more unsteady your hand will be. Higher magnification than 10x for a bird watching binoculars are therefore rather detrimental to the viewing experience, at least with hands-free viewing!
Generous fields of view, razor-sharp right to the edge with hardly any distortion. Field flattener eyepieces shift the foci of the Petzval field curvature so that they lie in the same plane.
Chromatic aberration is an imaging error in optical lenses that occurs when light of different wavelengths or colors is refracted to different degrees.
In principle, the lens diameter is not a direct quality criterion for binoculars. However, the size of the lens affects the light intensity of binoculars. Especially in ornithology, binoculars with average lens sizes are mostly used.
Larger lenses such as 10x60 or 8x56 binoculars, on the other hand, are usually designed for twilight and night vision and are less optimized for color brilliance or image warmth. Bird watching binoculars with color and detailed image reproduction, high-quality ornithology binoculars that are designed to meet the high demands of bird watching are often found in the higher quality and price segment.
These include the SHG and HDs series by DDoptics, which were specially developed as binoculars for bird watchers. Thanks to the extremely high resolution, these high-quality binoculars are able to see details that would remain hidden with other binoculars.
Like no other binoculars, the SHG series by DDoptics combines an extremely high image resolution with sharp detail right up to the outermost edge of the field of vision.
Everyone in the family gets to know their environment even better. It is easy to switch from small insects in the close-up range to standing game at the edge of the forest.
After a few seconds of practical experience you will know whether your ornithologist binoculars are comfortable to hold or whether you are immediately impressed by the sight and the mechanics are convincing.
The smaller HDs binoculars (s for small) by DDoptics also combine extremely high image resolution with sharp detail right into the edge of the field of view.
Binoculars recommended for bird watching
The most popular model sizes for birdwatching binoculars are 8x42 or 10x42 binoculars.
