Awesome binoculars
 
I am thrilled with my Papilio binoculars purchased from [...] through Amazon. I am a butterfly, bird, and natural history hobbyist, so I cannot speak as a professional scientist or discuss optics technically. I bought them sight unseen based on useful reviews here and elsewhere by people far more knowledgeable than I. Small and light as they are, they are substantial in construction and have a great hand feel. The clarity is superb, in my opinion, in distance focus. But it is the 18 inch close ...

Excellent Binocular for the price
 
I have very limited experience using binoculars, but we are going on a cruise to Alaska this spring and felt that we should get some. I studied up on all my options and picked these due to size (they are very compact for the power) and other reviews that I read.I tried them out in my yard watching squirrels build a nest in a tree far out in the woods. They are fantastic. I could clearly see all the activity during the nest building. I wear glasses and these presented no problems....

Good Optical and Mechanical Design for the Money
 
Good quality, medium power, compact binoculars have been disappearing from the market over the last 10 yrs, so I was eager to try out the Pentax 6.5 X 21 Papillo binoculars. The first number refers to the magnification; the second number refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. The classic reference standard for binoculars is 7 X 50 submarine commander's glasses. Although manufacturers push "higher power is better", 7 times magnification is about the highest usable power with a han...

Excellent general-purpose compact with a twist...
 
This binocular does indeed focus down to about a foot-and-a-half, far closer than any other binocular I know of. This makes it essential equipment for: art museums, biological fieldwork, any situation where you want to get closer to things you cannot simply GET closer to.Excellent clarity, as to be expected from a top-line Japanese optical company (as clear as Nikon, for example). Bright enough for the purpose, has diopter (on right, I think), and adjustable for both those who wear e...

Nice and Compact
 
Good quality view. I find the price a bit high considering the limited capability of these binoculars. The image quality is good but the magnification is limited for celestial work. For terrestrial viewing my kids love them. My kids find them easy to hold but a bit fiddly to focus. My kids like the "cool" shape of them. Overall a pretty decent value.

Beach Camera - Few good customer executives...
 
This is a specific review for Beach Camera and for executive Maurice. I brought Pentax Papilio 6.5x21 Porro Prism Binocular from Beach Camera. Some how my piece behaved different then the reviews done on line on Amazon.comI take Amazon reviews very seriously. My binocular did not do well per reviews and i contacted with Beach Camera wich was not comfortable. I spoke to a person called Josch (?) and my experience was horrible. He hung up on me after taking details after many minutes o...

Good product, good seller, crappy deliverer...
 
First, I am a very beginner to binoculars, so I don't have anything to commment on spec matter. I just received the item from the seller(OneCall). It was promptly shipped via overnight.When I first tried the binocular, I was impressed. I ordered this binocular for mainly indoor use, and it fit my need perfectly. Although I have some complaints about design of the carrying case, I am overall satisfied with the item.Now, THE PROBLEM is the FedEx. The FedEx delivery driver l...

Butterfly Binoculars-Super Close Range
 
These are very special for viewing close-ups while sitting on your patio or deck, or walking the forest. They act like a microscope, are super bright, and can focus on flowers, insects, hummingbirds, and butterflies within inches!! No others have this super close-up abilities...

Pentax Porro Prism Binoculars
 
Pentax has always made a superior product and the really did with this item. I bought these as a gift and am very happy with them. They are a little higher in price but that is the quality item. Why you might ask? They came in a black leather case and a necck strap. They are APPRX. 5 inches high by 5 inches wide and 2 inches deep and are adjustable to your face (eye) speration. Lifetime limited warrenty. Instructions make it very clear to only use lens cleaner no "Windex". These are true binocul...

Works as advertised
 
The Pentax Papilio is unique and has its own niche. The convergent lenses move together and focus down to about 18". This allow stereo viewing of most anything you see, and you can look at stuff you never thought to look at before. It really works as advertised--I easily read the writing on jeans rivets, light fixture stickers and car tires from 6 feet away.This is a $[...] product, so don't expect it to perform at $1,000 prices. There's a fair amount of glare/internal reflections with brig...
