4 out of 5 stars   Why hold your binocular upside down!
By Don (Jackson, MI) June 11, 2010

Pros: More weight steady hold, More length steady hold, Strong Construction, Quality Lenses
Cons: Should focus closer, Need eyepiece side guards, Poor lens caps
Other Comments: Why does everybody hold his binocular upside down, with the focus wheel on top. That way the fingers only lie flat across the top, so do not grip well by squeezing against the heel of the palm. I find it much steadier to hold the binocular with the focus wheel on the bottom. The fingers then wrap further around the tops of the barrels, all eight squeezing both downward and outward against the heels of the hands and the webs of the thumbs, all for a much steadier grip, which persists almost independently of what the tips of the thumbs may be called upon to do. As a result the tip of the right thumb is free to focus continuously without losing the squeezing grip of the fingers and palm. The left thumb and first finger can adjust the diopter focus without losing the good grip provided by the other three fingers and palm. The frame and face of the focusing wheel can bear firmly against the tip of the nose to further stabilize the hold--while of course, the rims of the eyepieces bear firmly against the eye sockets. This provides a 3-point support against the skull, which is much more stable than are the hands alone. This much better hold, less compromised by focusing activity, is particularly important for a steady image with this excellent 12-power binocular. So why hold it upside down!
