  1. The Great Gazoo

    I was looking for a compact zoom binoc with enough magnification to make them usable for a large variety of situations. The Eagle Zooms were me first choice but the price and favorable reviews of the Carson MiniZoom had me give them a try. I was quite surprised with the quality of this lower priced unit. The core of any binoc is the optics and these are very good. Eyepiece adjustment and rubber coating also good. Even comes with a protective pouch. Not hard-shell but will suffice to keep dirt out. My sole criticism is that (on my set) the zoom lever is a bit stiff. I’m hoping the lever will loosen up with usage. Still not a deal breaker at this very good price. Read more

    They’re great for what they are. Nice to carry along when you’re out walking or hiking – effective range is probably about 100 yards or so. Read more

  3. Geary-Henderson

    Used maybe 3 times, then the zoom lever broke off. The optics were not very good. When zoomed into 15 power you can’t see anything. Save your money. Read more

    They work great, definently exceeded my expectations! Has great zoom capabilities and the focusing is very east to do in a hurry. Small and compact, fits great in my Canteen Pouch on my kit. Read more

    I have no opinion about how these mini binoculars compare to others in it’s class. I was unaware of how small these really are. I could not get comfortable with the physical size of these binoculars and feel that unless you really know what you want these are a good candidate for local purchase so that you are comfortable with the size and features. I find Amazon a great source for many of my purchases, it just didn’t work out this time. Read more

    The optics seem fairly good for the price, though definite spherical and chromatic aberration apparent around the edge of the field. Works fine at the lowest power (5X), but the zoom function only works on the right lens! I’m assuming a got a defective unit — at least I would hope so. The objective lenses are so tiny (17mm) that at the highest power (15X), the image is so dark it’s hardly visible anyway. I checked the manufacturer’s “Warranty Procedure” notice enclosed and it says I have to return the item at my expense and even enclose a check to them for $12.00 to cover the cost of handling! This is no way to do business — unless, of course, you’re selling crappy merchandise. Read more

    Been shopping around for a mini-binoc for awhile. Infact, I purchased it “Used” but actually found nothing visually or optically blemished or defective about it for the discounted price…a bargain from the actual retail prices elsewhere! The zoom control is not user-friendly, but for me that’s a small concern compared to the focus quality and the viewing sharpness of the lens for a pocket-sized unit. Its also lightweight and can take a beating, although I wouldn’t throw it around. Really happy with my purchase! Read more
