Zeiss Victory RF Binoculars Continue To Win Awards
CHESTER, VIRGINIA - The ZEISS Victory RF Binoculars - the world's first premium inoculars with digital laser rangefinder, LED Display and Ballistic Information System - BIS continue to receive international recognition.
Introduced in early 2008, the ZEISS Victory RF was named a "Leading Edge: The Best of What's Next" product by National Geographic Adventure magazine (October 2008). The magazine says this about the Victory RF: "Zoom in on an object through the ZEISS Victory 8x45 rangefinding binoculars and a crisp LED display will give you its exact distance - as if you had Million Dollar Man eyesight. Traditional high-end ZEISS lenses and workmanship and a waterproof body complete this first-of-its-kind package."
The Victory RF is also winner of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in addition to The Chicago Athenaeum: GOOD DESIGN Award. Both are international awards that recognize the best design innovations of the year.
Carl Zeiss engineers and designers succeeded in integrating a variety of high-tech functions into an elegant and highly durable magnesium housing resulting in a technical masterpiece that is robust, powerful, ergonomic and compact. No other binocular offers the advantages of the Victory RF series with integrated laser rangefinder and BIS.
Victory RF Features:
• Premium optics provide brilliant image quality
• Ranges from 10 yards to 1,300 yards
• Integrated design, no separate laser emitter
• Accurate "One-Touch" rangefinding for a steadier image
• Ballistic Information System - BIS™
• LED display with automatic brightness control instead of standard LCD display
• LotuTec protective coating
The Victory RF binoculars are the world's first binoculars with a hinge bridge that do not require a separate laser emitter. The invisible, eye-safe laser beam used in the Victory RFs is particularly narrow, enabling the precise measurement of small targets even at long distances.
The One-Touch feature - a first for the civilian market - produces less shaking while ranging and therefore a clearer image. When the measurement button is pressed, the reticle used to target the object illuminates. When released, the range is immediately measured and displayed within 1 second. This generates considerably less shake and also saves time in comparison to other rangefinding binoculars on the market that require the user to press the button twice. It can also be operated in a Scan Mode for continuous measurements on small or moving targets.
The BIS (Ballistic Information System), works in unison with the laser rangefinder and provides accurate holdover correction for 6 common ballistic trajectories based on the most popular hunting cartridges. The BIS can also be programmed to work with 100 yard or 200 yard sight-in distances as well as provide measurements of holdover in either centimeters or inches.
The self-illuminating LED display (Light Emitting Diode) is easier to read than the more common LCD displays (Liquid Crystal Display) and also allows significantly more light to pass for observation. In addition, Carl Zeiss' world-renowned T* multi-coatings applied to the lenses enhance the clarity and resolution by affording truer color and higher contrast. The Victory RFs also feature Carl Zeiss' exclusive, award-winning LotuTec water-repellent coating on the eye and objective lenses.
