Adapting the IS system from their line of EF lenses, the Canon 10x32 IS Image Stabilized Binocularemploys a lens-shift system uses a combination of a vibration gyro-mechanism and microprocessors that detect and counter the appearance of hand-shake by moving the internal lens assembly to make the image appear steady. Two IS modes allow the performance to be tailored to the situation: Normal IS is ideal for moving or multiple subjects, while Powered IS improves the stabilization when observing a single stationary subject. An intuitive two-button user interface makes choosing the mode simple and easy. The IS runs on two included AA batteries, and when not using the image stabilization, the optic will operate as a conventional pair of binoculars.


Optically, the binoculars are built with traditional Porro prisms, and an integrated field-flattener lens that corrects spherical aberration for distortion-free views, especially at the edges. Canon's proprietary Super Spectra Coating is used to limit color bias, lens flare and ghosting; while maximizing light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast across the entire visible spectrum. With this new IS system, the close focus distance has been drastically reduced versus earlier models that use a different IS mechanism.

Performance
  • 10x magnification
  • 32mm objective lens
  • Porro prism light path
  • Fully multi-coated optics using Canon's proprietary Super Spectra Coating to limit color bias, lens flare and ghosting; while improving light transmission, color rendition, clarity, and contrast across the entire visible spectrum
  • Doublet field-flattener lens corrects spherical aberration for distortion-free views, especially at the edges
  • 7-element/6-group objective lens configuration
  • 5-element/4-group eyepiece lens configuration
  • 315-foot field of view at 1000 yards
  • 6.6' close focus distance is an improvement over earlier IS models
Image Stabilization
  • Lens-Shift image stabilization system uses a vibration gyro-mechanism, in conjunction with microprocessors, that detect and counter the appearance of hand-shake by moving the internal lens assembly horizontally and vertically, to make the image appear steady
  • Powered Image Stabilization is a secondary IS system that improves the image stabilization when focused on a single subject
  • ±1.0° correction angle
  • Runs on two AA batteries
