The second surprise is how remarkably steady objects appear. Canon's Image Stabilization (IS) technology is so effective, it will seem as if your binoculars are fixed to a sturdy support. Within two thousandths of a second of being shaken off the optical axis by vibrations, the IS mechanism swings into action to correct the incoming light path by precisely the right amount, effectively eliminating hand shake and delivering a steady image. Your binoculars can even be used for viewing from a moving vehicle. The super efficient IS system gives you 4 hours of continuous use off a single set of batteries.
Nature lovers will appreciate the low-reflectance exterior and low gloss front covers, which help avoid disturbing birds and other wildlife. The large IS button at the top and centre of the binoculars is easily accessible by a finger from either hand, as is the large focusing knob, which has a reassuringly smooth action. Durable, large rubber covers over the entire objective lens assemblies provide impact resistance. The eyepieces have large rubber eyecups for comfortable, easy viewing.
