Chinnon 8 x 30 a cheaper brand but does a decent job.
Chinnon 10 x 50 A step down from Swift but a good binocular never the less.
Apollo 8 X 30 Mk2, my sample is not as clear as the older version, but only by side by side comparison would one notice.
Legacy 8 x 20 I don\'t know where these came from , good for the theater.
Swift Pyser 8 x40 DSC_7626.jpg
Swift Audubon the cream of the Swift vintage range. The eyepiece field stops limit the field of view to 8.5 degrees.
Fabulous bins, the Swift Triton Mk2.  I prefer to use them without the rubber eye cups. 12 degrees field of view !! A lot of this wide field is in your peripheral vision, where it helps  you to orientate  yourself in star-fields, when stargazing or tree branches when bird spotting.
The Swift Belmont deluxe 10 x 50,  these are superb,lightweight underrated bins. My example is in cosmetically as new condition, optically too. They also have a very usable 7 degree field, which is great for a  10x50. Mine has trimmed down rubber eye cups which allow full access to this wide field.
Swift Newport-1967 model Cheriddy shop purchase, excellent 10 x 50 binocular. 7 degree field with twist up and down adjustable metal eyecups. A solid, heavy good looking 1967 51 year old beast of a bin.
Swift Saratoga Mk2 8 x 40 Love this 1973 bin, nice wide 9.3 degree field. Same eyepieces and bars as my \"gold stripe\" 1981 Audubon. This one also has nicely done \"diy trimmed down\" rubber eyecups.
Swift Apollo The smallest Swift binocular but a joy to use
Swift Grand Prix small lightweight great little Binocular
Newport and Apollo shown here to give some idea of size difference.
Foton 5 x 25 Russian-excellent but rubber eyecups tops perished.
Ednar 6x30 minus reticule, very handy and tough. independent eyepiece focus. A carry everywhere bin.
Fujinon 7 x 50 Superb rubber coated bins but very heavy.
Canon 18 x 50 Image Stabilised. I love these for astronomy as it is like using a tripod but with complete freedom of movement.
Fujinon 16 x 70, on a tripod these are great for astronomy and other long distance observing. Closest focus 100 feet.
Zeiss 10 x 50, excellent bins but annoying fixed eye-cups.
Zeiss 12 x 50 dodecarem one of my favourites, nice fold down eye-cups good for astronomy too.
Ultraview 7 x 35  zoom, beautifully finished, narrow field of view but excellent sharpness and contrast.
Chinnon 8 x 30 a cheaper brand but does a decent job.
