        Comments about Minox Miniscope 8x25 Monocular:

        As we travel often this unit is perfect to go with regards to it's size and weight, not to mention performance. I also use it at the range as a spotting scope. When combined with a Trek-Tech mini tri-pod it's uses are limited only by ones imagination.

        Comments about Minox Miniscope 8x25 Monocular:

        Maybe it was one too many episodes of "Burn Notice," but I was craving a pocket-sized monocular for an upcoming vacation, as opposed to negotiating binoculars, even small ones, and their ubiquitous neck cords. I took a chance and decided to finally treat my self to optics a step or two above cheap peeping gadgets.
        What I found in the black Minox 8x25 Minoscope was the perfect combination of size, weight, fantastic clarity and (admittedly) fantasy-stoking sexiness worthy of the coolest covert operative. The 8-power optics are beautiful and bright from edge to edge and the rubber casing is ergonomic and well-placed.
        The front-located focus ring does need near-constant riding, as the optics are extremely sensitive, so this wouldn't be the best choice for a lot of panning and variable-depth action. But for handy spotting and grabbing detail when it's absolutely critical, this is a beautiful little scope, especially for a glasses-wearer.
        As an operational bonus, there are also TWO mounting connections, one for a tripod and another, just under the eyecup, for a loop-type wrist or neck strap. A decent black neck cord is included.

        Perfect companion in your pocket

        By bel_riose

        from Torino, Italy

        About Me Avid Adventurer

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Bright Eyepiece
        • Lightweight
        • Sturdy

        Cons

        • A bit bulky
        • High price

        Best Uses

        • Birdwatching
        • Trekking
        • Wildlife Photography

        Comments about Minox Miniscope 8x25 Monocular:

        The pros:
        Perfect to fit in your pocket, crisp and bright view.
        I use it as a secondary unit to my binoculars, for when I just want to watch rapidly what's going on; then I use my Nikon 10x42.
        Useful in wildlife photografy when you carry a huge telephoto and you want to use the camera with one hand (and a tripod) and this monocular with the other hand, to scout the field.

        Now the cons:
        Front focusing ring is not so friendly, and you have to operate it with your pinkie if you are holding the monocular with one hand.
        Moreover, I have little hands, and the porro prism construction makes this a bit larger than a standard roof prism monocular.
        I would like more a total rubber coating, without anodized alloy parts.

        In sum, a very good product; way better than any other low price monoculars I tried before. And in facts this doesnt comes cheap.
