Leica Ultravid 8 x 42 HD Plus
Leica Ultravid 42 HD-Plus
The models of the 42 HD-Plus series are among the most compact binoculars available on the market in their class but their light-gathering power can compete with the larger 50 mm models. Leica Ultravid 42 HD-Plus binoculars are available with a magnification factor of 7x, 8x or 10x.
The 7x magnification is a true leading light and so is ideal for use in the hours approaching darkness. In addition, the 7x magnification offers a steady image, because hand trembling or engine vibrations, e.g. on a boat, are not transmitted.
The 8x magnification binoculars are real all-rounders. Despite the lower magnification factor they offer sharp and detailed images and thanks to their good exit pupil they keep performing for a relatively long time in fading light. The excellent field of view of the 8x magnification also offers a good overview, especially in wooded regions. The 10x magnification shows fine details even at long distances – without burdening you with too much weight.
