Canon 8 X 25 IS Binoculars - DISCONTINUED -
Canon 8 X 25 Image Stabilizing Binoculars
Extremely compact and lightweight, the 8 X 25 IS introduces a new kind of Image Stabilization to the most popular size of binoculars.
Weighing a mere 17 ounces, the 8 X 25 IS binoculars are the smallest and lightest IS binoculars ever produced. Combining Canon's Tilt-System Image Stabilizer technology with a rounded shape for greater comfort and non-slip holding, the 8 X 25 IS binoculars are perfect for any setting. Whether watching your favorite team at the local stadium, or taking a closer look at the natural world around you, the 8 X 25 IS binoculars are a perfect choice.
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.
