Description

The Steiner Navigator Pro 7x30 with compass is the perfect pair of binoculars for recreational boaters, fishermen and sailors. For astronomy, it is nice not to be constantly be playing with the centre focus wheel and the diopter to try and dial in perfect infinity . Like many, if not most of their other top-end instruments, Steiner incorporates their "NBR Long Life rubber" armor on all their marine binoculars. It enables users wearing glasses to view the entire field of view as the binocular image is projected further out of the exit pupil.

Aasy to use and versatile binoculars that offers in addition to its compact size and excellent image quality, an integrated HD-stabilized compass. One optical coating that is important to mention here for their intended marine uses is that they have a hydrophobic/aquaphobic material on the outer lens surfaces. Like the previous model, the new Navigator series offers two models with the popular analogue integrated compass. What’s more, they also come with a practical carry strap so that you can carry them around your neck when you’re out and about.provide bright, sharply contoured images with natural color definition for outstanding viewing quality suitable for both beginners and professionals. The Steiner Navigator Pro is thereby always sharp from 20m to infinity thanks to the Sports Auto Focus system.

An integrated compass features bearing marks that don’t interfere with the field of view, and is stabilized to increase visibility during rolling seas. I found the cups themselves to be very comfortable even when pushed firmly against my face and this is certainly one area where they have the advantage over the twist-up type on most binoculars.The main difference between the Marine and Navigator lines is that the Navigators offer a slightly wider field of view, and they can be submerged to a depth of 6 ft, while the Marines are only waterproof, not submersible. As well as enabling better views in spray/rain, cleaning the glass is easier because of these coatings.

A few days ago, I got my hand on a new Steiner Navigator 7x30, the updated model with the open bridge. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled for fogproof performance, and the Steiner 7×30 Navigator Binoculars with Compass is waterproof to 16′.

So whilst it is fine for short periods, I found that it would dig into my neck and thus become uncomfortable after about an hour or so. But on my first inspection after taking them out of the box, I felt they would be fine, they fitted quite easily into my daysack along with all my other gear and then once out on the river and in the kayak, their slightly larger size was really never an issue for me and I do think that the extra performance I got from their larger 30mm lenses was well worth it in this case.

As with the exterior armor, Steiner has obviously put a lot of thought into the materials used for the chassis: Instead of magnesium that many higher-end instruments will nowadays use, Steiner actually uses a polycarbonate Makrolon housing. I was a bit surprised to learn after I acquired my 8x 30's -NightHunters (from a lesser known distributer in Manitoba) that they were generally not available to the North American market , anyhow they were there when I went looking for a smaller version of the premium quality Commanders , that I had become so enamered with.Here again, the wide field of view ensures that you are able to take in more of the onfield action at once without having to pan about and I feel their size is still compact enough for you to easily pack them away into your daysack. A few months ago, I alerted the forum to a "How It's Made" documentary that was being shown in the UK on the Quest channel (Freeview 38), and this showed Steiners being put together. The new Navigator 7x30 Binoculars without Compass is packed full of features that takes the popular Steiner Marine series into the next generation. All this combined with the lack of having to make any sort of adjustments to the focus makes for an incredibly easy instrument to just pick up and use and was something that I really appreciated when out on the water, especially when using the binocular one-handed.
