Nikon introduces the PROSTAFF P3 Binoculars

June 9, 2022

TOKYO - Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., (Nikon Vision), a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation (Nikon), is pleased to announce the release of the new PROSTAFF P3 binocular series. These are the successor models to the PROSTAFF 3S, while the 8x30 and 10x30 models further extend this brand lineup.

The PROSTAFF P3 series binoculars provide a wide apparent field of view (62.9° for 10x42, 62.6° for 8x30) that allows users to capture a subject easily, making these models particularly appealing to novices. Multilayer coating is applied to the lenses and high-reflectivity silver-alloy mirror coating is applied on the mirror surfaces of the prisms. All of this effectively combines to deliver a clear, bright image.

Nikon PROSTAFF P3 binoculars are particularly ideal for novices and can be used for nature-watching, birdwatching and many other outdoor activities.
