High power binoculars giving you the shakes? Imagine a view which is stable, and fluid, and easy on the eyes.

Canon's image stabilized binoculars deliver stable views, using a combination of accelerometers, vari-angle prisms, and actuators. Simply insert 2x AA batteries, and press the button. The binocular reduces the shakes, so you can enjoy clean, crisp images, and concentrate on the fine animal identifying features.

The Canon 10x42 L IS binocular is a member of the L-series family, featuring two ultra-low dispersion (UD) lenses in each side. UD lenses deliver razor-sharp images with high contrast and excellent chromatic abberation correction. What you're left with is an image free of false color, and fine details you only read about in books.

Advanced field flatteners render images with no distortion. Straight lines will appear straight, rather than bowed, with improved definition around the peripheral area.

The 10x42 IS model delivers the brightest image of any of Canon's image stabilized binoculars.
