Don't know what size binoculars to get Binoculars have two numbers such as 8x42 or 10x50 The higher the magnification, the more light so a 10x binocular will need a larger objective lens than an 8x binocular to have similar brightness.

First major consideration: trade-off of magnification brightness. Higher magnification means things appear  but higher magnification also means less brightness. 10x binoculars are hard to hold steady (and I am young and not particularly shaky). If you can't hold the binoculars steady, your focus on what is in them If you haven't used binoculars much before-- you probably don't realize how much of  problem hand shake can be. 8x is pretty easy to hold steady Third major consideration Field of view ease of finding things in your binoculars, Much easier Binoculars the larger the magnification, the more zoom you are working with, the more difficulty you will have getting an object in sight. Lower magnifications make it easier to scan because they give you more peripheral vision.

Fourth somewhat less major consideration depth of field Larger depths of field are  Smaller magnifications tend to have wider depth of field. Mostly a wide depth of field just looks a lot nicer.

Learning to aim your binoculars at something takes and 8x will definitely be easier to learn with. 10x can definitely help show some markings on For still and slow birds in good or when it is easy to track birds think hawks 10x can be an excellent choice. Still a really good choice for birding. 12x is not for birding.
