Some people who enjoy bird watching, hunting and outdoor sporting events take binoculars along to get a better close-up view of all the action. The 12 x 50 binoculars are fairly small, most weighing around three pounds, and are easily portable. The number 12 refers to the amount of magnification: A 12 x 50 binocular will magnify the view 12 times larger than normal. The number 50 refers to the size of the lens opening: A 50mm diameter opening provides a large view, and together with the 12 power magnification can provide an excellent view.
