Jonathan Meyrav & Yoav Perlman trying the NL Pure 12x42
Jonathan Meyrav, Director of tourism and international events at Birdlife Israel, and Yoav Perlman, ornithologist and photographer, are two real experts when it comes to birding. That is why we asked them to test our new NL Pure 12x42. Let’s find out, what they think about our latest innovation after taking it out into the field in Israel.
When I looked through them for the first time it was a true WOW moment. Jonathan Meyrav
The largest field of view
Birding in Israel often means scanning vast barren areas, such as deserts. That is when the NL Pure’s wide field of view makes a real difference for Jonathan and Yoav. Plus: a larger field of view provides more light when birding at dusk.
The NL Pure provides unprecedented nature experiences and real #onewithnature moments. Jonathan describes the clarity and the field of view as „unparalleled.“ He felt like nature was truly „sinking in“. Yoav experienced his #onewithnature moment when watching Nubian Nightjars in a quiet, moonlit night. He was surprised how much light the NL Pure could gather even at night.
Jonathan Meyrav is Director of tourism and international events at Birdlife Israel and leads birding tours all over the country. He spends most of his time outdoors in nature for his job, but also for recreation. Nature – and especially birds – humble him and keep him focused on the important things in life. Besides birding, hiking, and fishing, he also likes basketball. Jonathan started birding when he was 11 years old. For many years, he has been using the EL 10x42 and an ATX 85 spotting scope and now also owns the NL Pure 12x42, which he describes as “the best piece of equipment I have ever used”.
Yoav Perlman is an ornithologist and wildlife photographer from Israel. He has been out in nature since his early childhood. It is where he feels “most relaxed”. For birding, he uses an ATX 85 spotting scope - “it perfectly combines ultimate quality with reasonable size and weight” - and an EL 10x42. He relies on SWAROVSKI OPTIK for its high quality products and exceptional service. Since Yoav received the new NL Pure, he has been using them for birding every day.
