- 12x Magnification: The 12x magnification of the Kowa BD-XD 12x56mm Prominar Roof Prism Binocular provides powerful zoom capabilities, enabling highly detailed and close-up views of distant subjects, ideal for activities like astronomy, wildlife observation, and long-range viewing.
- 56mm Objective Lens: The 56mm objective lens allows for excellent light-gathering ability, ensuring brighter and clearer images in low-light environments such as dusk or dawn, making it particularly advantageous for activities like astronomy, wildlife observation, and long-distance viewing. Additionally, the larger lens diameter contributes to a wider field of view and enhanced image resolution.
- Kowa Prominar XD Lenses: The Kowa XD lenses are made with eXtra-low dispersion (XD) glass, which has similar characteristics to fluorite crystal. This type of glass is very effective at reducing chromatic aberration, which is a type of optical distortion that causes color fringing around objects.
- Schmidt-Pechan Roof Prism Lens and C³ Coating: These prisms are highly reflective and transmit more light than other types of prisms, resulting in brighter and sharper images. The C coating on the prisms further enhances the reflectivity, increasing it to 99% or higher across the entire visible spectrum. This ensures accurate color reproduction, even in low-light conditions.
- Kowa's KR Coating: Kowa's KR coating protects the lenses from dirt and other foreign residues. This coating is also water-resistant and fog-proof, making the binoculars suitable for use in a variety of conditions.
- All-Surface Multi-Coating: The all-surface multi-coating on the lenses further enhances the image quality by providing a precise color definition and a brighter, sharper image.
- Waterproof and Fogproof: The housing of Kowa Prominar binocular is waterproof to JIS Protection Class 7 and filled with dry nitrogen gas. This ensures that the binoculars are fog-proof and can withstand even the most extreme weather conditions.
- Twist-Up Eyecups: The twist-up eyecups allow for customization, making it easy to view even when wearing eyeglasses.
