Ricoh Debuts Four Pentax Jupiter Porro-Prism Binoculars


Parsippany, NJ—Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation introduced four Pentax Jupiter porro-prism binoculars. The four models in the new series feature large-aperture objective lenses. Consequently, they ensure a bright, clear field of vision—even in low light, such as outdoors at dusk, at night or at indoor events.

Pentax designed the binoculars for comfortable viewing, even for first-time binocular users. The series includes models with magnifications of 8×40, 10×50, 12×50 as well as 16×50.

Each model incorporates a large objective lens with an aperture of more than 40mm. As a result, the binoculars provide enhanced light-gathering power to assure a high-contrast image of the subject. Pentax-Jupiter-porro-prism-Binoculars-lifestyle

Moreover, the company treated the optical element with a multi-coating process to minimize unwanted reflection of light. This also helps deliver a well-defined subject image, free of flare and ghost images.

In addition, the binoculars are simple to use with an easy-to-access focus ring. Also, an exterior rubber coating also helps to ensure a secure grip on the body as well as minimizes the possibility of slippage.
