CHESTER, Va., August 28, 2008 — Carl Zeiss introduces the Victory 8x26 T* PRF -- the world's first premium monocular with digital laser rangefinder, LED display and integrated Ballistic Information System -BIS. This monocular is ideal for hunters who demand optical excellence, precise rangefinding and accurate holdover information from a single, compact unit.
Lightweight and easy to use, the Victory 8x26 T* PRF provides ranging from 10 to 1,300 yards using an invisible, eyesafe laser beam. Its high measuring accuracy of ± 1 yard at ranges up to 600 yards and ± 0.5% at ranges beyond 600 yards makes it a must have for the most serious hunters. Measurements are displayed within fractions of a second and wide variations in temperature will not affect the measuring accuracy when used in temperatures between 14° to 122° F. One of the prime features of this high-tech unit is its Ballistic Information System — BIS which determines the holdover, thus greatly increasing the chances of an accurate shot.
The Victory PRF's 330 ft. field of view and 8x magnification, combined with Carl Zeiss' advanced technology, help make it possible to observe and range even smaller details at greater distances. The Victory PRF features a high-performance, two-element achromat in the 26mm objective lens.This sophisticated optical design, combined with Carl Zeiss' scratch resistant and highly transparent T* lens coating, increases light transmission and reduces stray light to a minimum.
The high contrast, resolution and image brightness is also a result of the Victory PRF's red LED display which features automatic brightness control to self-adjust to varying light conditions. The benefit: the Victory PRF's LED display is significantly easier to read all day and especially when the light is dim and the background is dark, thanks to the red illuminated display vs. the dark symbols used in standard LCD's found in most of today's rangefinders.
