We shall try to group the different series (or models) based on what type of binocular they are so it would be easier for you to choose which ones you need as each type caters to different applications.

Barska Digital Binoculars

Barska Point N View Binocular

Barska Point N View Binocular

The Digital type binocular is a sort of Barska’s version of bino-scoping. It is a combination of a binocular and a digital camera. The series that fall in this category is the Point n View binoculars.

The Point n View series is designed so that you can have the convenience of having an integrated digital camera with your binocular. If you like what you’re seeing, you can take photos or record videos of the views or images with the digital camera.

Take note though that the camera has its own optics and it is not using the lens of the binoculars so the resolution (or quality) of the images are different compare with the binoculars.

There are two models available in this series, the 8×22 and the 8×32. The Point n View 8×32 is the more popular model of the two.

Barska Zoom (Terrestrial or Celestial) Binoculars

The next type of binoculars in Barska’s range are the Zoom binoculars (also called Terrestrial, Celestial or Astronomical types). These binoculars are designed to provide users powerful magnification to get more details of long-distance views and images. Because of its powerful and adjustable zoom feature, the Zoom type binoculars are usually used for far-distance viewing of the sky or land. There are three (3) series from Barska that fall into this category:

  • Gladiator
  • Escape (Zoom)
  • Colorado (Zoom)

Barska Gladiator Binoculars

Barska Gladiator Binocular

Barska Gladiator Binocular

The Gladiator series offers a wide variable zoom magnification range which allows the user to locate the target and then zoom in to get a closer and more detailed view.

Take note that the Gladiator series tend to be a bit bigger and heavier than the other types (except of course the Big & Jumbo types) as they have bigger objective lenses.

In saying that, there’s one Gladiator model that is compact in size which we have particularly identified in the above list, the 9-27×25 version. All of the Gladiator models have the following things in common:
