Nikon Aculon A211
Binoculars are commonly associated with bird watching. This is because binoculars allow an object (birds) that are easily spooked and therefore require a safe distance in order to be observed and admired. The benefit of using binoculars, as well, is that typically quality binoculars offer a brighter and more vibrant image than even our own eyes offer. It adds a level of wonder and magic to the experience that cannot be captured by the human eye. But what other, less common uses, can binoculars be used for? There are some fun uses for binoculars like starting fires. Yes, if in a sticky situation (like an unexpected overnight in the woods) binoculars can be used as a fire starter. Though this should not be done for a non-emergency situation, the binoculars can actually be dismantled and the lenses can be used as a magnifying glass. As long as there is a natural light source (the sun) to magnify the light on kindling, a pair of binoculars can be used to start a fire. Another usage for binoculars is that they can be used as a signal mirror. Once again, this should only be utilized when in an emergency situation (as once again they need to be dismantled which would ruin the binoculars for future use and more than likely void the warranty on them). When dismantled there are mirrors within the binoculars that can be used to reflect light and potentially get the attention of a passing plane. The lenses can also act as a reflective surface in a darker material is used behind the lens as well.
