The problem with water getting on optics is that it contains minerals etc.,which will eventually corrode or permanently stain even if they are dried. the ideal thing is to get them clean asap,as the coatings are very thin and the first to go..good luck...larry@reichinstruments.com

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.

Water inside trying to clean


Why are you using water , which contains impurities

I use alchohol impregnated lens wipes which you can buy over the counter for cleaning spectacles, it also evaporated quickly

Use a lens cloth to polish the glass as it dries off.

Do not over do the application of any liquids on lenses as over time it will seep through the the various elements of the lens causing them to part company and your bino's will lose their sharpness

I have a Minolta Weathermatic 7x50 binoculars that suddenly I cannot get in focus. Additionaly, I see double on everything I view.


really sorry about that godlen_po. I will report the problem to our support team. Anyways your binoculars requires cleaning. Though they are supposedly water proof they can be affected by conditions like humidity after prolonged use. You would need to take it to proffessional for cleaning. Do not I repeat do not attempt to clean it yourself using water or any other cleaning substance like soap etc., as you may damage the lenses permanently. I screwed up my binoculars this way only to know about cleaning later. If you need any help locating the nearest spot where you can get this fixed feel free to post back. I apologize once again for the incovinience caused. I will verify if its on my side and report to the support team.

Thanks,
Sai.

Binocular repair


Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.

Water spots inside lenses


On the whole, I'd advise against dismantling binoculars yourself. Unlike most other optical devices, alignement is really important because you need to feed the same image into both eyes. If you're going to end up paying someone to realign the instrument, you might as well get them to do the cleaning at the same time. A.
