Nikon Introduces 7x50CF WP GLOBAL COMPASS Binoculars

October 1, 2015

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of the 7x50CF WP GLOBAL COMPASS binoculars. A global compass by Suunto is now employed for the 7x50CF WP Compass binoculars, that have gained an excellent reputation as marine binoculars over a long period of time.

As with the existing model, these are waterproof, nitrogen-gas-filled binoculars and are of the user-friendly centre focus type. The long eye relief design makes them easy to use even for eyeglass wearers. Multilayer-coated lenses and the 50mm effective diameter of the objective lens ensure a bright view. What's more, thanks to the built-in global compass, you can confirm directions accurately regardless of where you are, because it is designed to be used in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. A floating strap is provided as a standard accessory.

Built-in global compass with illuminator and scale:
You can measure dimensions or distances if you know one of the values.
