James Lees, Nature Guide and Conservation Ranger in Ontario, Canada, was one of the first people to receive a pair of our brand-new NL Pure binoculars. Find out what this British nature lover experienced with these binoculars.
The first time James tried the NL Pure, he was sitting out the front of his house. Suddenly a Great-blue Heron flew past perfectly lit by the setting sun. When the father of two lifted the NL Pure, he was absolutely blown away by the view. It was so intense, so perfect in colors and sharpness. He felt like he could reach out and touch the heron, although the bird was 100 meters away.
It is precisely for such breath-taking experiences that the NL Pure was invented. The binoculars’ exceptional field of view let the observers immerse themselves completely in the scene far away. Suddenly, you become one with the moment and see the unseen. In James’ eyes, the large wide field of view also makes looking for birds in the forest high up in the canopy much easier and helps locate fast moving small birds. A great advantage for the ranger and nature guide.
What truly makes theses binoculars so unique are their unprecedented form. The ergonomically optimized shape fits perfectly in the hand. James was amazed by the perfect fit as well as the balance and comfort he experienced while observing with the NL Pure.
"The NL Pure is so comfortable to use. They just fit so nicely into my hands. They are balanced perfectly so that I can use them with just one hand!” – James Lees
Thanks to razor-sharp contours on a high-contrast image, you can effortlessly identify every detail, however small it may be. The lenses of the NL Pure are covered by a special coating, which ensures excellent colour fidelity and high transmission. The resulting image is phenomenal.
Born in 1980 in the UK, James Lees has always been a nature enthusiast. He loves birding, photography, digiscoping, hiking, exploring wild areas – in short: all aspects of nature. James shares his passion for the outdoors with his growing family and everyone he meets. He is working as Conservation Ranger and Nature Guide for The Hamilton Conservation Authority in Ontario, Canada. Besides his recently acquired NL Pure 8x42, James loves his EL 10x42 binoculars and his ATX 25-60x85 spotting scope. The performance of the ATX - even in the worst light conditions - never fails to amaze him. It captures so much light that it makes digiscoping a fantastic experience.
