The Steiner 12x42 Predator C5 delivers a new standard of performance in high-power hunting binoculars that includes high light transmission and color contrast while being able to go the distance and reach into the farthest shadows. The new ergonomically designed pistol-grip checkered body gives them a secure and comfortable grip and allows for steady viewing with the higher 12x magnification.
The Steiner Predator binocular was developed as a special tool for hunters and nature observers to more easily spot animals in a woodland setting. Developed about 10 years ago, the concept is simple - boost the transmission of red and brown shades (the "right" side of the color spectrum towards infrared) while slightly reducing transmission of the "left" side of the spectrum (blue, green and UV light) to make animals and other objects "pop out" of the background.
Now, Steiner has developed an entirely new Predator binocular for the American hunter and outdoor enthusiast using entirely new optical system formulations, new fully multi-coated optics and completely new shock and waterproof housing. The new Predator C5 in 10x42 and 12x42 deliver a new standard of performance in a hunting binocular that includes a much higher degree of light transmission, image resolution and color contrast than previously available.
The Predator C5 uses an all-new rigid polycarbonate chassis that is not only durable but also mil-spec waterproof and dry-nitrogen pressurized. You'll appreciate the aggressive styling of the focus wheel making the C5 easy to use and focus with gloves in any weather.
Each Predator C5 includes a padded travel case, rain guard or the oculars and the attached objective lens caps, along with a contoured neck strap. Optional harness systems are also available. Each binocular is equipped with a tripod mount and a tripod adapter is available.
