Binocular guide / buying advice
In our binoculars guide, we would like to give purchase advice and go into other features that should make it easier to understand. Binoculars can essentially be divided into two types, binoculars with Roof prisms and with Porro prisms. Binoculars with roof prisms are more compact, but offer less spatial representation due to the smaller distance between the two lenses. Spatial representation is of interest to those users for whom it is important to estimate the distance to an object; these properties are particularly advantageous for hunting and the military. Because of their compact design, roof prismatic glasses are popular for bird watching and hiking; the focus here is not on estimating the distance.
