What is the difference between Porro prism and roof prism?

Prism design is mostly a matter of preference. Roof prism binoculars have a slim, straight profile and are more compact. They are often more expensive, because their
smaller prisms require more precise lens grinding and polishing to achieve excellent image quality. Porro prism binoculars are recognized by their offset lens barrel design. As a result of the design, the wider spacing of their objective lenses enhances perspective to produce a more realistic, three-dimensional image.

What do the numbers mean on each model of binocular?

10x42. Those numbers in front of binocular models, what do they mean? The first number represents the magnification power - in this case, 10 times larger than viewed with the naked eye. The second number represents the diameter (in millimeters) of the objective lens - in this case, 42mm. The objective lens is the lens closest to the object you're looking at (not the lens that's closest
to your eye) and is a good indicator of the binoculars' light-gathering power.
