Minimize shaking, maximize viewing.
Even with a standard high powered binoculars mounted on a tripod, keen astronomers will understand how every small movement or vibration from your surroundings affect your viewing experience. Shaking occurs naturally when you hold binoculars for an extended period of time. Wind, muscle fatigue and even excitement can contribute to “binocular shake.” The more powerful the binoculars, the more pronounced the shake appears. It’s tiring on your eyes, it’s distracting, and it makes getting a good, sharp focus simply impossible. To solve this common problem, the Canon 18x50 IS Image Stabilized Binoculars is equipped with Image Stabilizer (IS) technologies. Originally developed for Canon’s high performance video camcorder family, these IS technologies have been brilliantly adapted specifically for Canon’s binocular line.
