Leica Trinovid HD 8x42

  • Leica Trinovid 42 HD

    The new Trinovid 42 HD model is a popular classic, which Leica has enhanced by a sophisticated carrying system. Thanks to premium HD technology the robust and lightweight compact binoculars boast razor-sharp images and superior colour neutrality, and they are available with magnification factors of 8x and 10x. The high-traction rubber-armouring makes the binoculars incomparably resilient and offers perfect grip in any weather condition.


    Bright colours and always ready for use
    The first binoculars of the Trinovid family were built in 1958. The name stands for “three novel innovations” (Tri Novi): ergonomic construction, true internal focusing and superior optical performance. With meticulous attention to detail and the constant aim for better performance, the Trinovid has been continually improved. Currently, the Trinovid models are available as full-size and compact binoculars.


    These binoculars are made to survive (almost) anything
    It is not without reason that the Trinovid is known as a popular classic. With these binoculars we combine superior optical performance, excellent mechanical features and extremely compact form together with low weight and absolutely solid construction. These features make the Trinovid models perfect and reliable companions on trips or outdoors.


    Safe handling through ergonomic design
    Comfortable handling meets high-performance optics: whether razor-sharp images in close-range observation or brilliant long-distance vision – the Leica Trinovid binoculars offer fatigue-free viewing, large depth of field and easy, intuitive handling, thanks to the patented multifunctional centerwheel. The full-rubber armouring guarantees perfect grip, secure handling and makes viewing an unforgettable experience.

‘With a weight of only 720 grams and a length of 140 millimetres, the new Trinovid HD binoculars are extremely compact and are an equally ideal companion for wildlife and outdoor enthusiast,’ says Nanette Roland, Product Manager, Leica Sport Optics. ‘Our new Trinovid HD binoculars were designed for fast and universal use. They offer high optical quality and are extremely rugged and resilient at the same time. Our customers also enjoy the unique benefits of the adventure strap supplied with each model – a cleverly designed, neoprene carrying system that is exceptionally easy to carry and can be quickly accessed and provides a safe place to stow the binoculars.’

Knighton GB
Good brightness and clarity across a reasonably wide field of view. Almost as good as a top-of-the-range Leica or Swarovski for half the price. Though not cheap, it's waterproof and robust enough not to worry about taking it out in bad weather. Smooth, stable focus and other adjustments. Case is very comfortable to walk with.
It's a bit fiddly getting it out of the cover before the bird has flown.
