However, 16x magnification will greatly exaggerate slight hand movements so a tripod becomes almost essential at this level. The Action 16x50s also sport the same features as the rest of the Action line, namely a porro prism system and multi-coated eyepiece lenses.
The Action 16x50s' 50mm objective lens diameter allows large amounts of light to enter and get focused, resulting in greater overall brightness and excellent night time performance compared to smaller objective lensed binoculars. Their porro prism system provides the Action 16x50 binoculars with greater depth perception and a wider field of view than roof prism binoculars. Additionally, the Action 16x50s' multi-coated eyepiece lenses reduce glare and enhance contrast.
