BASIC OPERATION

Adjust the Eyecups
The eyecups on the Diamondback® HD binocular twist up and down so any viewer can see the full field and enjoy comfortable viewing—with or without eyeglasses.Vortex Optics Diamondback HD Binoculars 12x50 fig-2

When not using eyeglasses or sunglasses, keep the eyecups fully extended. For the best viewing when wearing glasses, twist your eyecups down.

Adjust the Interpupillary Distance
The interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the center of your left and right pupils. Match the IPD of your eyes and your binocular by rotating the barrels in or out until you see a single image free of shading.Vortex Optics Diamondback HD Binoculars 12x50 fig-3

Properly Focus the Binoculars

For the best results, follow this two-step process to properly adjust the center focus and diopter. Choose an object about 20 yards away and stay in the same spot until you have adjusted the binocular for your eyes.

  1. Adjust the center focus: Start by closing your right eye or covering the right objective lens with your hand. Focus your left eye on the object and adjust the center focus wheel until the image is in focus. Leave the center focus in this position as you adjust the diopter.Vortex Optics Diamondback HD Binoculars 12x50 fig-4
  2. Adjust the diopter: Start by closing your left eye or covering the left objective lens with your hand. Look through your right eye and adjust the diopter ring (found on the right eyepiece) until the object is in focus. Make note of this diopter setting in case you need to set it again. From this point on, you will only need to use the center focus wheel.Vortex Optics Diamondback HD Binoculars 12x50 fig-5

Note: If using another type of strap, never attach metal o-rings directly onto the strap attachment.

LENS CARE

Maintain the optical brilliance of your binocular by keeping lens surfaces free of dirt, oils, and dust.

Protect Lenses While Out in the Field
Make use of the provided eyepiece and tethered objective lens covers to protect the lenses when not viewing. If the optics are exposed to moisture, keep the caps off and allow the optics to dry out completely before putting them in the case for storage.

Keep Lenses Clean
In order to enjoy the best views through your binocular, take time to regularly clean the exterior lenses:

  1. Remove any dust or grit from the lenses before wiping. Use a can of pressurized air, a soft camel hair brush, or an acrylic optical brush.
  2. Clear lenses of smudges, fingerprints, or eyelash oil. Fog the lenses with your own breath, then use a non-abrasive lens cloth to clean the lenses.

Note: Use lens cleaning fluid and optical paper to clean lenses. Never use facial tissue, heavy cotton, or flannel clothing on lenses—these materials can scratch the surface of a lens.

Caution: Binoculars are not intended for looking at the sun, or any other intense light source. Such viewing could damage the retina and cornea of your eyes—even to the point of causing blindness.
