    The image quality is great returning natural colours with a high level of contrast with little chromatic aberration. Enhancements to the optical system include multicoated lenses and phase-corrected prisms. The chassis design includes a non-slip, textured rubber wrap around the holding area, and they are comfortable to hold. My only gripe is that the focus knob is in an unusual position resulting in ring finger rather than forefinger, which is not ideal as the as the narrow diameter of the wheel can make precision control more difficult.

    I do really like the Scout and in assessing what it has to offer for the price, I think it's excellent. You notice a big difference between looking through the Scout when the IS system is switched on compared to conventional viewing. To activate image stabilisation there's a switch on the bridge, which you simply flick to the 'ON' position and a green light will come on just below it. The image is now stable, irrespective of any movement or vibration you care to throw at it. There's no need to keep your finger on the button to keep stabilisation on, and there is a power-saving feature that automatically turns the IS off after five minutes if the binoculars are no longer in use. The battery life is supposed to last for up to 12 hours of continuous use but I've yet to test it anywhere near that length of time. I use a pair of rechargeable batteries and haven't had to recharge them yet.

    The field of view is limited, which is to be expected at this magnification but it doesn't really matter when an image is so steady as the one provided by these binoculars. I find it easy to lock on to a subject without any risk of it drifting out of vision. Would recommend!
