7x35's are good for entry level observations, general outdoors use, sporting events, etc. If you are a serious hunter or birder, you'll want to opt for the 8x42s or 10x42s.

Primary Use For The Aculon 7x35's 

The Nikon 8244 ACULON A211 7 x 35 Binoculars is a perfect definition of the term outdoor binoculars.

Inside its sleek design, it's jam packed full of advanced technology that enables it to have an edge over similarly priced binoculars. As such, it can be used for a wide range of outdoor activities such as nature observation including animal watching and bird watching.

Other uses for these binoculars include outdoor sports such as hiking, hunting, or bird watching. It has a wide variety of uses due to the sharp images that have good color integrity.

While these are not without fault and are entry level binoculars, the Nikon 8244 ACULON A211 7 x 35 Binoculars are an excellent starter pair.

Lenses

The The A211 Nikon Aculon Binoculars utilize eco-glass technology for its lenses.

The glass is lead and arsenic free to make it more environmentally friendly. The aspheric lens enables the binoculars to have a flat field of view so as to deliver clear images.

Furthermore, the lenses are multi-coated for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing the brightness of images.

The lenses here have a diameter of 35mm for an amazingly wide field of view. So, you won't miss anything.

This product offers its users a great quality viewing experience any optical gadget has to offer at this price point

Magnification

As the name suggests, the Nikon 8244 ACULON A211 7 x 35 Binoculars has a magnification of 7 x 35. The ‘7’ represents the power of the multi-coated lenses meaning the object will appear 7x larger.

The ‘35’ on the other hand represents the diameter of the objective lenses. The larger the diameter, the more light that it allows in meaning a sharper and brighter image.

Image quality

The Nikon ACULON A211 Binoculars use a BaK-4 Porro prism that enables the product to record high quality images regardless of the lighting conditions. 

The use of the eco-glass results in crystal clear and sharp images.

The reason these binoculars are cheaper than many others is because of the use of the Porro prisms. Porro prisms are much cheaper and easier to manufacture than roof prisms, but give a great quality image at a lower cost. The drawback is they are bulkier than their roof prism counterparts.

Though these are very high quality, the images viewed are not in high definition.

Eye relief

These have an eye relief of 11.8 mm. While this is not a great number, it should accommodate many glass wearers.

Design and Durability

These Aculon Binoculars include a center focus knob that is relatively smooth and should be easy to adjust the focus.

Additionally, the body of the binoculars include a rubber armored exterior coating. This should help it survive being banged around in the woods or dropped in your backyard when your bird watching.

Pros of The Nikon Aculon A211 7x35 Binoculars

With its unique combination of advanced technology, users of these Nikon Binoculars have cited numerous benefits of using this product. Some of the benefits enjoyed include:


  • The rubber exterior that covers the inside specs and features. The rubber offers users a firm yet comfortable grip due to its ergonomic design. In addition to this, the rubber offers a cushioning effect to the product in case it falls or bumps against another surface.

Cons of The Nikon Aculon A211

Although these Binoculars have numerous benefits to their users, they are not completely perfect.

Also, though the images are good, they could be better and render in high definition.

What Others Say About These Nikon Binoculars

By GFG

I own a number of binoculars, from small to large (e.g. Fujinon 10x70's and 16x70's). I wanted a lightweight, wide-angle, rugged pair to replace an old pair of another popular brand that developed some issues over the years. These Aculons are superb, especially for the price. A friend of mine has a $1000 pair of Zeiss field glasses. We sat and compared, back and forth. He wasn't terribly pleased. His $1000 investment yields images that are no better than the Aculons, and the Aculons have a wider field of view!

I use binocs for sightseeing and stargazing. (Not much of a "birder.") These little gems are wonderful, and I did observe a mountain jay from about 50 feet away. Beautiful colors and details. Razor-sharp, and easy to find quickly in the wide field-of-view.

The image is crisp and sharp right to the edge. The apparent field of view (what it "looks like" when you peer into them) is excellent. The eye-relief is very comfortable. They come to sharp focus very easily and the mechanism feels very smooth and solid. The image colors and contrast are excellent. Grade-A optics, which I suppose one should expect from Nikon. In this case, the mechanical aspects rival the optics in quality.

My wife used them for a concert and said they were "a little heavy after a while." Well... yes. They aren't "concert" glasses. They are very solid and well-constructed and designed for outdoor use. But she still used them for much of the concert, and she could just about study the cellist's earring from a hundred feet away and spot a loose piece of horsehair on one of the violinist's bows. The image detail is superb.

Great product. Highly recommended.

By Shin Kang

The mechanical part is good.
But there are not enough optical parts.
The center image is clear, but the peripheral image is bad.

By Bacchus

Very good set of binoculars for the budding nature lover or astronomer. My son (9) received these for his birthday and we've spent many nights looking at the heavens. Nice wide field and decent magnification for moon magnification or making out binary stars or brightening up Andromeda (even it it's only a smudge).
