    Advice needed for buying binos

    depending on how much you want to pay but the nikon action ex 12x50 at about £180 and next to my helios apollo 22x85 bins my most used binoculars (the helios to big and heavy for backpack and need solid tripod ) the nikons give nice sharp bright images and the 12x50 have aspherical eye pieces which helps eliminate edge distortion also give zoom bins a wide berth fov not that great and go out of colimation quite easilly https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0001EFIFW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.nikon.co.uk/en_GB/product/sport-optics/binoculars/action-ex/action-ex-12x50-cf

    that is a good book

    Floppy Hinge on large bins

    I had a cheap pair of 10x50 bins with same problem and sorted it by removing the ipd scale and tightening the big slot headed screw located underneath the guage I was lucky it was an exposed cross head screw holding guage in place and not concealled under a metal sticker (not done this on observation bins so may be diferant) Dont try this tho till other folks confirm thats how to do it also it may void warranty depending on age of bins
