I tested the binoculars CL Pocket 8×25
I love being surrounded by nature
but I must confess I’m not a bird watcher. I’m more obsessed with the Ocean and I really like spending my freetime to walk along the coast to enjoy the endless view and sometimes surfer friends in the water. When I received the beautiful binoculars CL Pocket 8×25, I decided to try them in Sagres, one of my favourite part of Portugal.
So I went to the Fortress of Sagres (Fortaleza de Sagres), overlooking a cliff facing the Atlantic Ocean with spectacular views. The fortress is near Cape St. Vincent, the most easterly point on the south-western part of Portugal. A very windy area, but this time I was lucky, no wind and an incredible light. I guess the best conditions to test binoculars and make these pictures.
Bel objet, great luxury design
The binoculars CL Pocket are so small and compact that they are easy to slip into a small bag. By cons I found them a bit heavy to put in the pocket of my jacket. Finally I’ve kept them around my neck.
It wasn’t so easy to adjust both lens. Believe me or not, it was the first time I used binoculars (yep!). And as I never read the instructions before (LOL)… When I succeeded, what fun! It was like a new world opened up to me! Even the birds have started to become more interesting to me! Unfortunately, the lens of my camera is not able to show the scale of what I was looking through the binoculars.
I’ve never thought binoculars could change as much my perception of what surrounded me. The quality of the lens definition is amazing! It’s like having the full picture with all of the details.
