Bushnell 12×50 Engage DX Binocular

Uniquely optimized for viewing across vast flat terrain such as the prairies of the American west where the powerful magnification and wide field of view really shine, the Bushnell 12×50 Engage DX Binocular is also ideal for hunting and birding in the pre-dawn and late dusk when birds and game are most active.

To help deliver its performance, Bushnell employs anti-reflection multi-coatings on the lens elements with protective exterior coatings and the prisms are dielectric coated and phase-corrected. These coatings work together to maximize light transmission through the light path, resulting in bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution, even in challenging conditions such as at dawn and dusk or when viewing across vast wide open spaces. To further improve the observational experience, the Engage is designed with a generous exit pupil and wide 64° apparent angle of view that help to minimize the distracting hand shake that is common when holding powerful optics.

Bushnell built the Engage to make it easy and comfortable to hold and allow it to withstand the harshest elements. Its design provides an ergonomic and balanced feel in the hand that also provides the strength and stability required of workhorse binoculars like these. The optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to an IPX7 rating so they are waterproof and resistant to internal fogging if the weather turns or they take an accidental spill in a stream or puddle. Protecting the optical components is a rubber armor outfitted with textured palm pads that provide a sure and secure grip. Given the high power and oversized objectives, some users may experience excessive hand shake or arm fatigue when holding the Engage for long periods, knowing this Bushnell outfitted the front of the bridge hinge with a threaded hole so the binocular can be tripod mounted using an optional adapter for easy hands-free use.

Optical Performance

  • Powerful 12x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects
  • Large 50mm objective lens provides the light gathering capacity required to keep views crisp and bright when viewing targets at extreme distances, and keeps views bright in challenging light conditions such as at dawn and dusk
  • Roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes remain as slim as possible for easier handling without affecting performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • PC3 phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal interference to improve color and contrast
  • Dielectric prism coatings boost light throughput to 92% for minimal loss and diffraction
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, contrast, and color fidelity
  • Proprietary EXO exterior lens coatings resist external fogging, scratches and abrasions while allowing oil, dirt, and sap to be cleaned off without leaving smudges or residue
  • Wide 64° apparent angle of view presents an immersive and panoramic observational experience with reduced appearance of the distracting hand-shake that is common when holding high-power optics
  • Spacious 280-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Closed bridge design provides a solid and stable platform for the internal focus mechanism
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, even while wearing gloves
  • Locking right-eye dioptric correction allows user to compensate for optical prescription to produce sharper views without the risk of movement
  • Broad 53-72mm interpupillary distance adjustment range enables easy use by a wide variety of users from adolescents to adults
  • Twist-up click-stop eyecups for easy use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with an optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Comfortable 15mm eye relief reduces eyestrain, especially during long glassing sessions
  • 4.1mm exit pupil will cover pupils as they open and dilate in low light to keep the whole scene in view without vignetting

Construction Details

  • Eco-friendly lead-free glass
  • Ergonomic body design positions the hand over the binocular’s center of balance for additional comfort and reduced strain and fatigue
  • Protective rubber armor with raised palm pads provides a solid and secure slip-resistant grip
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to an IPX7-rating: Waterproof and capable of temporary submersion in puddles or shallow streams
  • Tethered objective lens caps protect lens surfaces without the fear of losing them when not in use
