Canon 10 X 42 IS L-Series Binoculars
Canon 10 X 42 L Image Stabilized Binoculars
The much-anticipated Canon 10 X 42 L IS WP are the first waterproof binoculars to incorporate Canon's exclusive Image Stabilizer technology for steady, shake-free viewing. The high quality L series optics, featuring 2 Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens elements (on each side), deliver excellent correction for chromatic aberration. With a large lens diameter and a 4.2mm exit pupil diameter, the Canon IS binocular provides an exceptionally bright view, even in low-light conditions. The Canon 10 X 42 L IS WP binocular offers both the desired brightness and excellent waterproof capabilities, making it ideal for a host of activities including marine use, stargazing and wildlife observation - just to name a few.
Minimize Shaking, Maximize Viewing.: 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, many Canon binoculars are 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.
Focus and Follow.: It isn't always convenient to use a tripod - especially if you or your subject is moving. With Canon's IS binocular models, there's no need for additional equipment. Canon offers an Image Stabilizer system utilizing a Vari-Angle Prism (VAP) on the 15 X 50 IS AW Binoculars. This system has two sensors - one vertical and another horizontal - that detect motion as well as a microprocessor that adjusts the Vari-Angle Prism on each side, in a bellow-type fashion, according to the amount of binocular shake detected. This provides instant adjustment of the refraction angle to compensate for motion. So what you see through the lenses is absolutely steady - even when you're not.
The Genius is in the Details: Each Canon binocular has been engineered to deliver performance that will impress. The state-of-the-art optical technology from Canon's world-renowned EF Lens series has been carefully adapted especially for use in several Canon binocular models, offering unparalleled resolution. Also, Super Spectra Coating increases image contrast and reduces lens flare and ghosting in most Canon binoculars. In addition, Canon uses aspherical elements in several of its designs to assure sharper focus while dramatically cutting distortion. Technologies like these enable Canon binoculars to perform at an extraordinarily high standard.
