Canon 12 X 36 Image Stabilizer III Binoculars
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 12 X 36 IS III 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.
Small Size, Solid Magnification: Canon's 12x36 IS III boast a highly refined optical system that enables them to compete with larger binoculars easily in the field of sheer performance. A 12x close up view is more than enough to make out all kinds of fine detail that the naked human eye just cant, and it's in a package small enough to be carried around and used comfortably.
Power for Hours: With enhanced power-saving electronics, the Image Stabilization (IS) system in Canon's 12x36 IS III is markedly more energy efficient than in previous models. Using AA alkaline batteries, the 12x36 IS III's IS system works for up to 9 hours. The 12x36 IS III are also compatible with nickel-metal hydride (NiMh) rechargeable batteries.
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.
Light, sleek, and powerful, these advanced binoculars feature Canon's celebrated Image Stabilizer technology to keep the image steady even when you're not. High magnification multi-coated lenses deliver a wide, extra bright field-of-view. The Doublet Field Flattener keeps images sharp from edge-to-edge. The enhanced power-saving technology coupled with optional lithium AA batteries provide up to 9 hours of continuous use. All Canon binoculars feature a center focus for easy one-handed operation.
