Image stabilized binoculars help minimize shaking to maximize your viewing enjoyment! Subtle 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 problem, image stabilizing binoculars are equipped with Image Stabilizer (IS) technologies. Originally developed for high performance video camcorders, this technology has been brilliantly adapted specifically for binocular line. It isn't always convenient to use a tripod - especially if you or your subject is moving. With Image Stabilization binoculars there's no need for additional equipment. Image stabilization technology provides instant adjustment of the refraction angle of the binocular to compensate for motion. So what you see through the binocular lenses is absolutely steady - even when you're not. For a stable image at higher magnification, check out our Image Stabilizer Binocular systems below.
