Who Am I?
Hello! My name is Perry Rosenbloom! I grew up hiking and loving the outdoors. As I got older, I fell in love with photography and backpacking. I’m a journalist by trade and love to write!
One of my favorite summer pass times is gazing across alpine lakes and with a trusty pair of my grandfather’s binoculars. Unfortunately, my Grandpa’s binocs were ancient. These heavy beasts were impossible to drag into the backcountry. And watching wildlife with a pair of 50 year old binoculars weighs heavy on my arms.
So I set out to buy a new pair of binoculars! Unfortunately, I noticed that the Internet is full of lousy sites that all offer the same marketing bologna. When I started shopping, I wasn’t entirely sure what the number before the X was and what the number after the X was. Of course, I do now 🙂
After hours of research, I decided that I’d make the Web’s first, comprehensive binocular review site. No site out there goes into as great detail as I do when reviewing binoculars…
Now, I’m sure you’re asking…
What Makes Me Qualified For Binocular Reviews?
Well, here’s what I do when reviewing a pair of binoculars.
First, I try to get a pair in my hands. I do this by going to an outdoor store like REI and using the binoculars myself. This gives me a pretty good idea of how the binoculars feel, how they perform etc.
I also always try contacting the manufacturer and getting a sample pair–but this easier said than done.
Next, I analyze the binocular specs and see who this specific binocular is for. Is this an ideal binocular for birdwatching? Or is this better suited for backpacking into the wilderness? Does this binocular offer the right specs for stargazing? Or should this binocular best be used by your child, the budding outdoors gal/guy?
After that, I’ll scour the Internet and look for other binocular reviews from sites like Amazon.com, REI, Backcountry, Binoculars.com, Cabelas, OpticsPlanet etc.
Using my journalistic integrity and fact-digging skills, I investigate what consumers are saying about a specific pair of binoculars. What do they like about them? What don’t they like about them?
Out of dozens of reviews, is there a common thread throughout?
Finally, I give a bottom line on what the binoculars are like with my own editorial judgement and rate them. Thankfully, I’m not the only reviewer though! Dozens of consumers have left their thoughts on the binoculars below the review, or they write their own review (and each month have the opportunity to win $25!).
Do I Receive Compensation?
I am in no way affiliated with Bushnell, Canon, Nikon or any of the other companies out there.
However, I do link off to Amazon, Binoculars.com, REI and other sites where you can buy the binoculars. If you click one of my recommendations and decide to buy, then I will receive a small commission. That way, if you decide to buy one because of my hard work and research, I’ll receive some compensation to help keep this site afloat.
My primary compensation for my hard work and dedication is the satisfaction I receive from the hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts using my site and congratulating me on what a great resource it is for them.
