Can I switch yards to metres using the menu. Or it just meters or yards only. For Canada it is very important, as I use both, meters and yards.

Asked by: Vlad
You can switch anytime. Hold down the circular button and it will flash. Then tap again to switch.

Hi, I was interested in an 8x30 Porro prism binocular with CAT light transmission. As I recall, Steiner used to produce a predator like that, but that is discontinued. Is there a new model with those features?

Asked by: Nikolai
You may be interested in our Safari Ultrasharp 8x30 - while it does not have the CAT coating on the lenses, it is still color-adjusted for a sharper image, and also offers the Porro Prism design you are looking for. You can find out more here on our web site:
