The Steiner Commander 7x50c is a higher-end, military-grade pair of binoculars in Steiner’s marine series. The commander range is the medium-to-top class for serious mariners and professionals, including fishing guides, marine patrollers, ship captains, tug boat operators, and yacht owners.

A nice optical gear for marine navigators, these binoculars feature a fluid-damped, illuminated, and stabilized compass with a ranging reticle. With a price tag of more than $1,000, they have been carefully engineered to help you treat rough waters safely, whether for work or leisure.

A 7x magnification is a marine standard. Pair that with the Steiner Commander 7x50c’s finest, index-matched glass and state-of-the-art lens coatings, and you get optimal image clarity. With the help of the Sports-Auto Focus system, you can see sharp images without needing to adjust the focus knob constantly.

The click-lock strap system makes it really nice to grab and put to face when boating.

They are equipped with Steiner’s Nano-Protection lens coating technology, a hydrophobic molecular coating that protects the optics. With this coating technology, the lens surfaces can sheet off water, and repel dirt, dust, fingerprints, snow, and other debris.

Your binoculars can stay in excellent condition for years, thanks also to the reliable Makrolon chassis and floating Porro prism system.

Further, the Steiner Commander 7x50c is filled with 14-psi pressurized dry nitrogen. As such, it can produce bright and clear images even in foggy environments. You can take it with you wherever you go, even if the conditions are far from ideal.

With the floating neck strap, you can easily carry these binoculars around. This neck strap is padded for your comfort. Featuring a 3M reflective trim, it is also highly visible and floats in water. You need not worry about losing your binoculars in case of accidental spills. More importantly, it is waterproof to a depth of 33’.

Much is expected from binoculars in this price range. However, the Steiner Commander 7x50c may not live up to all your expectations. They might be too big for extended periods of use by some if not used to them.
