Are these binoculars waterproof/fogproof?

I have seen claims from sellers on EBay stating these binoculars are waterproof/fogproof. Is this true?

    Thank you very much. I purchased the binoculars on EBay with the seller claiming the model I requested info from FixYa on were waterproof/fogproof.

    I have now initiated an exchange for the waterproof/fogproof model listed in the Nikon link.

    The seller admits they were mistaken to claim this.



    Thanks again

I have condensation/moisture in one of the two lenses of my Nikon Action 7x15x35 binoculars


Nikon Action binoculars are not meant to be 'waterproof'. They give the specification to the Chinese factories to construct the bincular to the retail price point. The higher the cost the more features. Water can damage the inside of a binocular as the contaminants in water can cause fungus to grow. Once that happens the glass lenses or prisms are damaged.

You can try to dry them near a warm air source such as blow heater on warm not hot over a period of time. This will help evaporate the moisture. It will not help if fungal bacteria has started to form.

Depending on the use that caused the influx of moisture you may have a warranty claim.

Who made these marine binoculars?


Without seeing a picture it is difficult but there is hope. Most binoculars branded by companies other than the big three come from China. Namely the Kunming United Optics Corporation. Just type in United optics China into google. Have a look at the BC 6 in the compact binoculars section they may look like your ones. Not many 8x26 units are nitrogen filled so I'm guessing on this one. They have a support section and may be able to help.
