Steiner 7x50 Navigator with Compass Binoculars
Coastal cruisers prefer the comfortable and compact Steiner Navigator marine binoculars for their lighter weight and ability to cut through the haze. Special lens coating cut through UV light and haze for all day glassing comfort. A tough Makrolon polycarbonate body and compact construction make the Steiner Navigators durable and shock resistant.
The Steiner Navigator 7x50 is loaded with features. Rugged and waterproof down to 2 meters, this binocular delivers bright, clear images with specially coated high-contrast optics under any lighting condition. Steiner's legendary Sports-Auto-Focus ensures instant sharp viewing in any situation without the need to constantly refocus.
The new Commander Global is the flagship of Steiner’s line of marine binoculars. It has all the performance and convenience features of the Commander XP Series, but with its digital compass it can travel the world providing precision navigation and reliable performance. It s the ultimate marine binocular for use on the high seas around the world
The compass automatically adjusts for magnetic declination eliminating the need to have up to four different models when circumnavigating the world. (On standard Commander XP models the compass modules have to switch to accommodate magnetic declination, or you have to have one each for the 5 regions of the world).
LX-Precision Compass – Fluid dampening stabilizes this reliable, analog compass. The bearing is easy-to-read by the integrated bearing mark. By pressing the button on the side, the compass can be illuminated.
7x50 Advantage — The 7x magnification and larger 50mm objective is the standard for marine binoculars. It produces a wide field of view making it easy to track other boats, navigation buoys and bridge numbers even in rough water. The larger image also reduces the need for stabilized images. The 50mm objective gathers a lot of light making it possible to see more detail in low light.
High Contrast Optics – High-Contrast-Optics provides outstanding viewing quality with a minimal investment. They are perfect for both beginners and professionals. All lenses and prisms are manufactured with maximum precision and are specially coated and deliver optimum observing results. Our state-of the art optical technology guarantees absolutely bright, high-contrast and sharply contoured images with natural color definition.
Floating Prism Lens System – The prisms have a “floating prism mount’ that is fixes the prism in place with a durable, flexible silicon material. These binoculars will stand up to the hardest use and abuse you can put them through in a marine environment.
Steiner Sports Auto Focus System — Simple to use, even with one hand. Each ocular lens is focused individually for razor sharp images. Once adjusted to your eyes, everything will be sharp and clear from 20 yards to infinity. Allows one-hand use so you can keep a steady grip on the tiller or helm.
Cylindrical Eyecups — The cylindrical eyecups are soft and can be easily folded down to provide full field of view when wearing sunglasses. They help to eliminate glare while on the water for better, more comfortable viewing.
Rubber Armoring — Maintain a firm grip even under difficult conditions. The soft, silicon rubber material is slip-proof, noiseless and shock absorbing. This rubber armoring is super rugged and long lasting.
Rain Protection Cap — Standard equipment includes rain protection caps for the ocular lenses and objective lenses.
Quality Carrying Case — A padded carrying case make it easy to safely store your binoculars when not in use.
Makrolon Housing — Only Steiner offers a polycarbonate chassis that is extremely durable, impervious to rust, oils, acids and all the abuse that years of hunting can bring. It will withstand 5 Gs of force and not crack or break.
Nitrogen Pressure System — Steiner uses a vacuum to remove all oxygen and moisture from the binocular then uses pressure to fill the lens barrels with nitrogen so the binocular will never fog up. Extreme temperature swings from freezing cold to desert heat will not cause condensation to form.
Waterproof to 6 ft. — The binoculars are built to withstand complete immersion to a depth of 6 ft.
From its humble, post-WWII beginnings, Steiner has become one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality optics. Optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947, offering products from small cameras to binoculars and special lenses. As the company grew, it increasingly focused its production on professional high-quality binoculars. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, the first binoculars ever with an integrated compass, the first binocular with special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.
Today, Karl Steiner's son Carl continues to strengthen and develop the company's position as a world leader in binocular production, utilizing the highest level of technology and setting high standards for future products with all binocular manufacturers. Steiner is located in Moorestown, N.J.
