AVAILABLE FUJINON BINOCULARS SERIES
Polaris Series Binoculars
Fujinon Polaris Series binoculars have a lot going for them. They're waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof, thanks to their polycarbonate housings and armoured coating. They were built to military specifications, so there are no concerns about them holding up outdoors. Their EBC coatings provide ultra-bright viewing, and crisp colors. The center focus dial allows for easy adjustment of the viewing field. They're also lightweight, making them easy to carry.
Mariner XL Series Binoculars
Fujinon Mariner XL binoculars are high quality marine binoculars, but aren't as heavy as some other models. Instead of metal alloys commonly used in housings, they're made with ultra-strong, lightweight, polycarbonate, giving them a weight of just 31 ounces. In addition to being completely waterproof thanks to their nitrogen-filled barrels, the lighter material also allows them to float. Add the flotation neck strap, and you won't have to worry about losing your binoculars if they happen to fall into the water.
Another nice feature on the Mariner binoculars is the compass with built-in LED light to help you find your way, even after sunset. An added range-finding reticle helps you determine distance and bearing, a must-have ability when you're on the water. The soft, foldback eye cups provide extra long eye relief. Another benefit of the polycarbonate housings is that they're impact-resistant. Fujinon Mariner binoculars come with a limited warranty.
Poseidon Series Binoculars
Fujinon Poseidon binoculars are heavy duty, but lightweight marine binoculars. They feature sealed, dry nitrogen-filled, light alloy housings, making them 100 percent waterproof. The rubber armor shell is easy to grip, even when wet. Advanced EBC coated optics provide bright images, while the objective lenses provide wide fields of view.
The waterproof housings protect Poseidon binoculars if they happen to fall into the water, so rest easy when taking them out on the boat. But don't let that limit how you use them. They're light enough to take anywhere, and provide quality images that make them appropriate for viewing just about anything. One Poseidon model even features a built-in compass to help with on-water navigation. You won't have to worry about finding your way back to land with these optics handy. It also contains an internal range finding reticle, great for assisting with marine wildlife viewing and fishing. All Fujinon Poseidon binoculars come with a lifetime limited warranty.
Fujinon Techno-Stabi binoculars are the world's only 100 percent waterproof image stabilizing binoculars. They are dry nitrogen charged, making them not just waterproof, but fogproof as well. The lenses have EBC coatings, providing bright images, true colors, and reducing glare, flare, and ghosting. Phase-coated roof prisms also make for sharp, highly defined images.
A battery-powered drive motor runs a microprocessor, dual piezo-vibration sensors, and a gyro position sensor to help you lock onto subjects, even those in motion. With these features, Techno-Stabi binoculars provide true digital stabilization. The automatic stabilizing system consumes a minimum amount of power, giving your batteries longer life. The case is waterproof, and shockproof. These binoculars will stand up to everyday, and rough weather use. The included closed-cell foam flotation neck strap keeps the binoculars afloat if they're dropped in the water.
