The Swarovski Optik SLC 42 Binoculars features fluoride-containing HD lenses which ensure bright, high contrast images with maximum color fidelity. Enhanced special coatings support this effect. The SLC 42 HD is also suitable for close-range observations at distances of up to 6 feet. Taken in combination, the result is a pair of reliable, high-performance binoculars that let you see nature in all its glory.
Fluoride-containing HD lenses minimize the color fringing that is unavoidable with conventional types of glass. As a result, the SLC 42 HD provides high contrast images in natural colors with razor-sharp outlines: exceptionally high quality crystal-clear images that brings you even closer to the true beauty and fascinating details to be found in nature.
The enhanced coatings of the lenses and prisms (SWARODUR, SWAROTOP, SWAROBRIGHT) support the effect of the HD lenses. Observe nature at its finest, even in twilight or difficult lighting conditions. The SWAROCLEAN coating on the outer surface of the lens provides an anti-stick effect, making it easier to clean away dirt such as water marks, insect repellents or tree resin.
The SLC 42 HD stands out in comparison to other binoculars due to its larger exit pupil distance. This enables eyeglass wearers to enjoy the entire wide-angle field of view and to benefit in full from the crystal-clear images provided by the SLC HD. The SLC 8x42 HD, for instance, gives a 408 feet field of view, providing the best overview in its class. The removable twist-in eyecups are individually adjustable in three stages.
The SLC 42 HD not only offers excellent optical performance. The focusing mechanism also enables particularly fast and highly precise adjustments. Thanks to its short, slender construction, the SLC 42 HD fits even better in your hand. And the magnesium housing makes it significantly lighter than its predecessor - ideal for fatigue-free and precise observation, even when wearing gloves.
