It is often the little hints and tips that make everyday life easier. Our experts offer you advice on your optics.
Bullet drop compensator
The bullet drop compensator from Carl Zeiss is probably the most intuitive ballistic solution on the market- easy to use and exceptionally precise. The knob normally used to adjust the elevation is replaced by a non-slip adjuster ring with a distance scale. Before taking your shot simply turn the BDC to the measured distance - and aim accurately. It has never been easier to overcome the challenges of long-range shooting.
A high percentage of light transmission describes what is perhaps the most important feature of any binoculars or riflescope: the brightness of the image. Carl Zeiss is the world's market leader when it comes to image brightness in optics. The hunting optics made in Wetzlar deliver brilliant, high-contrast images even in the most challenging of light conditions. This means that you can shoot for much longer and even take the perfect shot in difficult light conditions.
Modern ZEISS binoculars, spotting scopes, and riflescopes are extremely robust and protected reliably against dust and moisture. This makes them very easy to care for; in particular, this applies to the glass surfaces on the ZEISS Victory products with their hard, water and dirt-repellant LotuTec® coating. Nonetheless, several points should be observed to ensure the performance over many years and decades.
Range is what it is all about – whether it's on the hunt, on the golf course or in landscape surveying. With laser rangefinder technology, Carl Zeiss offers an innovative measurement system which quickly and precisely determines distances and detects even small objects at great range. One hunter asked a question that gave us an opportunity to explain this technology in more detail.
