Close focus

Focusing at a distance is no problem for any pair of binoculars; focusing at close range, however, is a totally different matter. This is important, since sometimes you will be in a situation where close focus is important, in particular if you start getting into birding or even watching butterflies and you would like to appreciate minute details. Clkose focus is the domain of compact binoculars and pocket binoculars in particular, although not all of them specialize in this feature. Some pocket binoculars can focus as close as 1 meter, but the ultimate close focus binocular is the Pentax papilio (see links elsewhere on this website), which can focus as close as 46 centimeter, 18 inches.
