The advantages of a wide field of view
When using a pair of binoculars, the wider the field of view is, the most the binoculars can showcase of what you are looking at.In few words, it makes so much easier to find objects, especially moving ones.
That is why, by providing this series with a wider FOV, we hope you will enjoy these binoculars in a multitude of ways and in a variety of situations.With these binoculars, at your usual sporting matches, you won’t miss a play.
And if your goal is the vastness of a starring sky, usually a higher magnification will be preferable over a wide field of view, but we decided not to compromise with these both wide and 12x42 pair of binoculars!

Porro prism
We know the size of these binoculars may seem to be compromised, but in order to showcase the highlights of a porro prism, the compromise is worth it. Named after the Italian optician who patented this system, porro prism binoculars make use of a double prism Z-shaped configuration to show the image.
By separating the two lenses the binoculars’ size results increased, but the advantage is remarkable. Porro binoculars have the additional advantage of folding the optical path so that the physical length of the binoculars is less than the focal length of the object. Simply speaking, it gives a better depth perception, a “must –have” in any kind of activity or observation.

Focus ring
Artos binoculars have been provided with some extra features in order to give you the comfort of a very easy grip. In this sense, the large center focus ring of these models offer the advantage of easy and simultaneous adjustments. An extra feature that gives excellent operability to standard but high quality binoculars.

Fully waterproof and multi-coating
You can strongly rely on these multipurpose binoculars in every situation or condition.
The fully waterproof exterior protects the inside, and the nitrogen filling makes it possible to avoid fogging even in the worst weather conditions.
In addition, the multi-coated glass-to-air surface of the lenses reduces light loss no matter what kind of outside events you are fond of.
