The new Barr & Stroud Savannah range of binoculars are a blend of superb optical quality  with advanced mechanical design and rugged refinement that has produced an elegant range of binoculars that take the Barr & Stroud brand to yet another new level of performance and sophistication.

The Barr and Stroud Savannah 8x42 with its stunning wide angle performance is the optimum model in the range. At first glance of the specification details many people think that the apparent view of 143 m at 1000 m must be a misprint – it isn’t, and the first time you look through the Savannah 8x42 eyepieces you will realise what an exceptional binocular this is. If you are not impressed you must be very hard to please! Combine this wide field of view with the large amount of light that is passed through to the user’s eyes, with the combination of 8x magnification and 42mm objective lenses, and you have clear bright images in high resolution and colour fidelity that mark this model out as special.

This combination is so important if the observer will be using the binoculars in low light conditions such as dawn and dusk when wildlife are on the move, or looking closely at a bird’s plumage, to identify it’s species, in dense foliage where the light is restricted. There is also the fact that 8x magnification is also relatively easy to hold steady without the need for additional support making the binoculars a joy to use.

The ‘Savannah’ range from Barr & Stroud feature rugged construction combined with brilliant optics and high resolution wide field eyepieces to produces stunning images. They are waterproof to a depth 1.5m of water for three minutes, plenty of time to retrieve them if you have dropped them in a stream or puddle. This requires a high degree of mechanical quality in the construction of the binocular which is evident as soon as you pick the binocular up or use the super smooth focus control wheel. A further refinement of the ‘Savannah’ range is the position of the individual eyepiece control just behind the main focus adjustment wheel, instead of the traditional adjustment ring placed in front of the right hand eyepiece. This makes balancing the binocular for the individual user’s eyesight a simple operation that does not require the user to take the binoculars away from their eyes during the operation

We do not expect that you will make a habit of dropping the binoculars into deep water but we do expect that you will want to use them in any weather the planet can throw at you, so you can feel assured that the Barr & Stroud ‘Savannah’ can take it, again and again. This ability is further enhanced by the binoculars’ rubber armoured body which protects it from shocks and knocks. The binoculars are filled with nitrogen gas which keeps water out and also stops the optics suffering from internal fogging in adverse weather conditions, so that this binocular is truly weatherproof.

Fully Multi Coated optics are standard features of the Barr & Stroud ‘Savannah’ range as are BaK-4 phase coated prisms. This degree of sophistication ensures that as much light as possible is transmitted through the optics which results in super bright contrast rich images of high colour fidelity for the user even in low light conditions where less expensive coatings and optics result in a dramatic loss of performance.

For the comfort of the user the binoculars are supplied with metal twist up eyecups that are rubber coated which make them equally practical for people to use with or without spectacles. The rapid focus mechanism of this beautifully manufactured binocular takes the user from close focus to infinity in less than one turn of the focus control knob, which ensures that you can follow the action however fast it is happening.

The ‘Savannah’ 8x42 is supplied with rain guards, carrying case, deluxe strap, tethered lens caps, and lens cleaning cloth.
