Introducing the next generation of waterproof PROSTAFF binoculars: Nikon delivers quality and affordability in the PROSTAFF 3S

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 4th March 2016: Extremely compact and lightweight, PROSTAFF 3S binoculars are designed for easy portability and are ideal for casual outdoor activities such as nature observation, trekking, hiking or sports events. The slim body, shock-resistant rubber armouring and comfortable grip ensure easy handling. Being waterproof and fog-free makes them suitable for all kinds of weather.

Not only is the PROSTAFF 3S exceptionally lightweight – noticeably less than competitors in its class – the 10x42 model features a wider field of view without compromising on the length of the eye relief. This makes finding objects, especially moving ones such as wild birds, much easier. Nikon’s safe Eco-glass optics are used in all lenses and prisms. The multilayer-coated lenses and high-reflectivity prism coating ensure sharp, bright images. Turn-and-slide rubber eyecups make it easy to correctly position the eye.

By combining superior optical performance, easy handling and portability into a very affordable package, Nikon has made PROSTAFF 3S binoculars hard to resist.

PROSTAFF 3S binoculars are available in two standard 42 mm-diameter models: 8x42 and 10x42.
