Bushnell is the leading brand in high-performance binoculars, and the Falcon series offers powerful magnification at an economical price. Versatile, and ideal for stadium sports, bird-watching, hunting, and many other outdoor applications, the 10x50 model boasts a durable design and rubberized, abrasion-resistant finish. An InstaFocus lever provides smooth feedback, with just enough tension to fine-tune magnification, while a Porro prism and coated lenses provide sharp viewing. For those who wear eyeglasses, or sunglasses on bright days, clever fold-down eyecups protect your lenses from scratching.
Making Eye Adjustments (Figure 1):The distance between the eyes, called “interpupillary distance,” varies from person to person. To achieve perfect alignment of lens to eye, follow these simple steps.
How to Adjust for Individual Eye Strength:Bushnell Falcon binoculars utilize the “Insta-Focus” focus system. "Insta-Focus" binoculars have a central focusing lever between the barrels. Focus at any far or near distances can now be attained simply by pressing the “Insta-Focus" lever.
Eye Cups (Figure 3):Bushnell Falcon binoculars are fitted with rubber fold-down eyecups designed for your comfort and to exclude extraneous light. If you wear sun/eyeglasses, roll down the eyecups. This will bring your eyes closer to the binocular lens thus providing improved field of view.
Handy fold-down eyecups prevent prescription glasses and sunglasses from scratching

Some data points on visibility at various distances
I use these to coach a rowing team from land, so here are some good data points about visibility at various distances. The boat is about 60 feet long and has eight people rowing in it.
- Within 50 meters binoculars are not necessary in daylight but in very low light (e.g. at night) they are quite helpful in making out details.
- At 50-200 meters away I can see all eight rowers clearly and steadily without having to use the zoom at all. This is frankly the optimal distance for these binoculars. Great resolution here.
- At 200-500 meters I can see them but need to use the zoom to make out any kind of detail about who is doing what.
- At 500-700 meters I can see the boat but have to use full zoom to observe it and details are nearly impossible to make out. At full zoom like this you have to brace your hands (or use a tripod) in order to see details because the free hand just shakes too much to be useful.
- Beyond 700 meters it's very difficult to make out any details, even at full zoom. The oar blades are about 2 square feet in area and are a very bright orange and they are difficult to spot at this distance. (For reference, when a boat is rowing toward you, the oar blade face is alternately showing and then hidden, so they basically make a bright orange flashing square for me, and I have a hard time identifying that they have started rowing.)

they seem like good binoculars
I will start off by saying I know nothing about binoculars. I have bought a few $10 sets at the store on a whim and I had an old set given to me--and they were worth about what I paid for them, as I'm no longer using them and I don't care to. I bought these binoculars after reading a few reviews and figured I'd give them a shot. To my uneducated eye, they seem like good binoculars. They let me see what I need to see.
I like to hunt. A couple weeks ago I was sitting in my blind and I watched 2 deer come out of the woods into the field. I was using my muzzleloader with open sights, so I was not able to look through the scope to check for antlers, as I had antlerless-only tags and could not shoot a buck. Thankfully, I grabbed these binoculars and took a quick peek. The one in front was a small forked buck. Knowing that, I was able to target the doe that was behind him.
