Binoculars have been around for centuries, playing a key role in military operations, astronomy and ornithology, with many other uses as well. The beauty of this technology lies in its commonality and use amongst professionals and hobbyists alike. A wide range of price points make it easy to find a pair that fits your needs.

However, visually it’s a product that could use a little boost. That’s where Leica comes in. For nearly 170 years, the camera and optics company has been cranking out beautifully designed products. A new collaboration with Italian carmaker Zagato has rendered a limited edition run of 1,000 of the most gorgeous binoculars we have ever seen. expand full story

A few highlights include: The Walking Dead: Season 5, Gotham: Season 1, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 to name a few. Below you’ll find the full list of new shows and movies arriving throughout the month.

Also, to make room for all this new programming a bunch of content is going to be leaving as well. This September is a little different because Netflix’s deal with Epix is expiring and they aren’t going to renew. This means all Epix movies are leaving Netflix and are heading over to Hulu. Some of the titles that are leaving are: The Wolf of Wall Street, The Hunger Games: Catching FireTransformers: Age of Extinction, plus many more.
