These have a build quality that at least matches and perhaps even surpasses other units that cost hundreds more. Like most binoculars, the frame has been covered with a hard rubber armoring which will protect them from scratching as well as small bumps and knocks and helps to improve you grip on them. The twist-up (helicoid) mechanism on these Carson 3D series binoculars is pretty smooth, but lacks any fixed intermediate stops which is a slight shame as this means that eyeglass wearers have less flexibility when it comes to adjusting the eye-relief to suit their exact needs.

The Carson's are perfectly collimated and offer a great view - I tested them by viewing a horizontal line on a neighbor's house and stepped back from the binos just enough to see if left was in line with right, and it is. The forums are dedicated to wild birds, birding, binoculars and equipment and all that goes with it.

A tough but very lightweight and waterproof body protects some really high quality optical components including the use of ED glass and phase-coated BaK-4 roof prisms that produce a bright and high quality image. The Carson Optical VP-042 10x42mm Compact Binocular has been designed to be the perfect binocular for any outdoor activity.

They both feature a roof prism design using quality BaK-4 glass and come with optics that have been fully multi-coated.This is an important feature to look out for when choosing your binoculars - lower quality optics that will often only add multiple anti-reflection coatings to the outer surfaces of the lenses (Multi-Coated) and cheaper still are optics that only have a single layers of anti-reflection coating added to the outer lenses (Coated). You sometimes find that very light binoculars are made from cheap and inferior materials, but this pair of optics feels like a quality instrument that is very solid and robust and whilst I did not test them to destruction, I would say that they should handle even the toughest conditions under normal uses. BinoArmor is also virtually impervious to the elements, they eliminate the need for lens caps and rain guards, they are also almost silent to open and close and they work with standard neck straps or a binocular harness as well.

I like the attention to detail in that the padded section that hangs around your neck is slightly curved to ensure that it hangs more naturally. In my opinion, the depth of field for a binocular with a 10x magnification is about average as they were about the same as that of my control pair. The Carson XM Series Binoculars also feature a rubberized armor coating and the body is nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed making them waterproof and fogproof. Although the Monarch 3s and the Redfied Rebels are good (both more expensive), it is hard to use either of them after seeing thru these. In addition, the VP-832 8x32mm Binoculars have phase correcion coatings on the prism glass and are waterproof and fog's recommendation as the budget pick so was happily surprised by the quality of the build, materials and optics. She is able to see clearly thru them, and they are small enough that they do not weigh too much for her to hold up for long periods.

In addition to all these benefits, Carson VP Series Binoculars come with a range of accessories, including a carrying case, lens covers, and a cleaning cloth. Also inside the case you will find a lens cleaning cloth and a fairly generic instruction booklet that includes details like adjusting the eyecups, how to properly attach the neck strap, the inter-pupillary adjustment, how to properly focus your binoculars, lens care and cleaning etc. These roof prism binoculars come in 5 different configurations ranging from the large 12x50 VP Series binoculars to a compact 10x25 model. The body on these Carson 10x42 3D binoculars are O-ring sealed to make them fully waterproof which obviously protects them from moisture, but also prevents dust and other tiny particles from getting inside them, which can lead to your view being spoilt. By using a tripod to mount the binoculars, users can enjoy a steady, hands-free view of the world around them.Below is a table comparing some of the main features and specifications of this Carson 10x42 3D Binocular with a selection of other full size roof prism binoculars with magnifications of 10x - The Kowa SV 10x42, the Minox 10x42 BV's, the Swarovski 10x42 EL's and the Steiner 10x42 SkyHawk binoculars.
