Leica Camera AG, Wetzlar, presents a new generation of the Leica Ultravid HD 42 binoculars. The prisms of the new binoculars are made from specially formulated SCHOTT glasses with exceptional transmission characteristics. The significantly increased light transmission, particularly in the blue-violet band, ensures not only higher image brightness, but also better color transmission and considerably improved twilight vision.
In addition to a brighter viewing image, the Leica Ultravid HD-Plus 42 binoculars also offer increased contrast performance in all viewing situations, and particularly in an unfavorable light. The binoculars feature exceptionally high-quality lenses that reduce flare to an absolute minimum. This guarantees excellent colors and contrast, outstanding image brightness, clarity and optimum resolution of details. Here, innovative AquaDura® coating ensures a crystal-clear view in all weather and protects the lenses against scratching and abrasion. In terms of handling, the binoculars are ideally matched to their users’ needs and frequent use under even the most extreme viewing conditions. The shock-absorbent armoring protects the binoculars against damage while also providing an excellent grip for safe and steady handling.
- Balanced ratio of magnification and light intensity
- Good twilight performance
- Binoculars for extended observation: high detail recognition even in the most adverse lighting conditions, during the day and at late twilight
The Leica Ultravid 50 HD-Plus binoculars provide exceptional contrast and outstanding image brightness that other binoculars with larger front lens diameters can hardly rival. Their fluoride lenses ensure optimum image clarity and resolution power. Thanks to their large front lens diameter, they are particularly suitable for observations at night and in the hours approaching darkness. Leica Ultravid 50 HD-Plus binoculars are available with a magnification factor of 8x, 10x or 12x.
With their ideal combination of high transmission and perfect contrast, the 8x50 HD-Plus models are truly excellent binoculars for use at night and in low-light. The 10x50 HD-Plus models offer high magnification for good detail identification and thanks to the large exit pupil they allow unique observation experiences even in the hours approaching darkness. The 12x magnification offers the best possible detail identification and is ideal for use with tripods.
