Canon 10x30 IS
Meade 10x42 Montana Waterproof Wide Angle Roof Prism Binoculars
Most people find that handholding a 10x is not a problem, so outside using them on a deck of a boat, there is not a lot to be gained with the IS.
My main criticism of IS centers around the fragile nature of IS. Binos with IS only feature a 1 year warranty, as do most instruments electrical in nature. If you plan to be using a bino hard in the filed or to be using it under extreme conditions, I would recommend a conventional binocular as a better long term investment.
