Thread: Compact Binoculars around 50

    Compact Binoculars around 50

    Had a few cheap (circa 20 and less) binos over the years but all have been crap. Recently bought myself some Minox BVs and am mega impressed. Now my old dear wants to buy my Dad a pair of compact binos to be left in the car glove box (not when its baking in the car though). The Minox are too big and too pricey for what she wants.

    Can anyone recommend a cheap, but still acceptable, pair of small binos, something like 8x20.

    You should know that all cheap binos (circa 50 and less) are all crap !! Your Dad deserves better

    A bit overbudget, karl, but these are about the best of the inexpensive compacts, nice wide view :

    At that price point, either clearance items or secondhand would be my advice.
