Optics - Understand Binoculars Before You Buy

Note: Since, there is so much to say about binoculars, this presentation will focus on binoculars. Scopes, tripods, and heads will be part of a future presentation.

Binoculars are expensive investments and it's important to get it right. If you are newer to birding and considering your first purchase, or are considering upgrading or changing your optics, this webinar is for you. The presenter, Jim Mackiewicz is an avid birder and understands both birding and optics very well.

Jim Mackiewicz Bio

Jim Mackiewicz and his partner Lynda have owned Wild Birds Unlimited in Toronto since 2001. They sell nine brands and over fifty models of binoculars, four brands of spotting scopes, tripods and other optics accessories. They help customers pick the right optics by leading them through an evaluation process which guides them to best pair for their needs.

Jim and Lynda are both avid birders and are sub permitted bird banders involved in ornithological research at the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station (a Canadian Migration Monitoring Station) and are members of Simcoe County Raptor Research.
