Orms Connect Giveaway: Steiner Binoculars

  1. As a photographer that loves wildlife our very own Kruger National Park has been my chosen holiday destination for many years. However it is a dream of mine to see the Masai Mara migration – I think visiting Kenya is probably the ultimate for any photographer. And with binoculars like that the WOW factor must be HUUUGE!

  2. Birding Big Day is 26th November 2011 and I would love to visit Phinda, which is the ultimate experience for avid birders in KwaZulu Natal – with over 480 bird species and of course get to see the Big 5. 

  3. Thats easy…South America through the Amazon rain forest and beyond…I would def make great use of them in my own city(Cpt), but if I get to take them to any other location…the Amazon

  4. As a Freelance Photographer I would like to get to know my own country a lot more, but if I had the choice of going overseas I would like to visit my best penpal friend in Drumheller, Canada to meet her face to face, eventually, after having been friends since 2006.

  5. Easy one for me… In the Tankwa Karoo…  When not staring into the night sky with these bino’s I’d be using them to try identify those Little Brown Jobs

  6. There’s nothing quite keeping my eyes firmly on Cape Towns very own natural wonder of the world, Table Mountain. A site so obvious which is in plain site but do we get to really see its natural wonder close up. An ever evolving beauty.

  7. Just from our new offices overlooking the city of Cape Town, the view is fantastic from the 19th floor and i am sure this great set of Steiner Skyhawk binocular will make it more impressive

  8. So much to see on my doorstep in Gansbaai.  The whales,bird life, fishing trawlers, to name but a few, that I would not have to travel far to get the best out of the Steiner Binoculars.  

  9. If I could go anywhere, it would be to Papua New Guinea. The chance to observe the birds of paradise with a pair of Steiner Skyhawk’s would be absolutely amazing and the fulfillment of dream..

  10. My answer would be different any other time of the year but now it would have to be at the Kyalami Race track where Car mag is doing the performance shootout for the Jan 2012 issue. Most exciting place in the world at the moment!!!
