Just Another Reason Why Breaking Bad is the Best Show on Television

Normally when you're watching a movie and a character looks through a pair of binoculars, you see this:



Because the filmmakers don't trust you to understand why the camera is suddenly zoomed in and part of the screen masked. On Breaking Bad, when characters look through binoculars, it looks like this:




Because (other than cropping for 16:9) that's what it actually looks like when you put binoculars up to your eyes.

What kind of binoculars was Walt using in the 'End Days' episode anyway? (had ruby lenses, I think)

They are ruby coated Binolux binoculars. They look to be the same model often printed with company logos.

Binoculars are quite pricey so the utmost care must be given to them in order to take good care of them. A harness is particularly helpful for binocular owners since it frees the hand while at the same time provides a secure enclosure for your equipment. Since fatigue is a major problem especially when bird watching, using a harness is very convenient and won't tire you needlessly.
