LaScala Optics Othello 3x25 Opera Glasses Review

By   

If you've been to an opera or ballet and found yourself seated in the rear balcony, you may wish you had brought along a pair of opera glasses. The LaScala Optics Othello 3x25 Opera Glasses (starting at $30, Amazon) are an attractive and cheap option, as LaScala Optics Othello 3x25 reviews point out. One review on B&H Photo notes these compact opera glasses look a lot more stylish than her birding binoculars and also fit into a small evening bag. Another review on OpticsPlanet says these are compact and not particularly powerful, but are just right for indoor performances, be it a circus or play. Another review on L.A. Splash notes these small binoculars work best in low light conditions, displaying good resolution and brightness. The LaScala Optics Othello 3x25 has a fixed focus and field of view of 588 feet at 1,000 yards. It weighs just 4.5 ounces and is equipped with a mini flash light that glows red that comes in handy if you're trying to read a program or seat number. Moreover, you have your choice of color; the LaScala Optics Othello 3x25 is available in combinations like titanium and gold, black and gold, white and gold, and burgundy and gold. These small binoculars are a good choice for cultural entertainments but won't be particularly useful in the great outdoors.
