The Image Stabilizer suppresses image shake so that the image looks steady to the eye. When the Image Stabilizer is engaged, vertical and horizontal gyros detect motion in any direction. The amount of shake is calculated by a microcomputer and the shake is optimally counteracted by either a set of Vari-Angle Prisms or a Tilt mechanism; in effect,the light's refraction is altered so that the image always looks steady to the eye.
How does the Image Stabilizer work?
However, with Canon's Image Stabilizer turned on, the image shake becomes tolerable even at magnifications of 15x and 18x. Such high magnifications were previously unthinkable in a pair of binoculars without the use of a tripod. The Image Stabilizer steadies the image instantaneously and brings out the top-notch optical performance of the lenses.
The more powerful the binoculars, the more vibrations are magnified. As a result, even a slight shake of your hands will shake the image in the binoculars a lot. Normally, we can tolerate this image shake with binoculars up to 7x magnification. With higher magnification binoculars, the image shake would quickly become intolerable.
What is an Image Stabilizer?
All Canon binoculars also come with Super Spectra coating to enhance image quality by maximizing contrast and minimizing color smear, and Lead-free glass to help protect the environment.
Weighing a mere 17 oz. the 8x25 IS Binoculars are the smallest and lightest IS binoculars ever produced.
