Description

Canon's new 8x25 IS Binoculars are the latest model in the Canon Image Stabilizer series. The 8x25 IS brings you the outstanding optical performance and unparalleled Image Stabilization capabilities you would expect from Canon Image Stabilizer binoculars for the most affordable price yet!

 

Weighing a mere 17 oz. the 8x25 IS Binoculars are the smallest and lightest IS binoculars ever produced. Combining Canon's newly developed Tilt-System Image Stabilizer technology with a rounded shape for greater comfort and non-slip holding, the 8x25 IS binoculars are perfect for any setting. Whether watching your favorite team at the local stadium, or taking a closer look at the natural world around you, the 8x25 IS binoculars are a perfect choice.


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.


What is an Image Stabilizer?
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.


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.


How does the Image Stabilizer work?
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.


This item has a two-year warranty from Canon USA.

        Comments about Canon 8x25mm IS Image Stabilized Binoculars:

        I have used these for bird watching, concerts, sporting events and even home inspection. In all cases I found the optics to produce clear, bright imagery with vivid colors, even in relatively low light. The weight is very manageable and has not been an issue for me. The construction is solid and reassuring with easy to use controls.

        The only possible addition to the package that I would like to see is a set of covers for the large primary lenses.

            Comments about Canon 8x25mm IS Image Stabilized Binoculars:

            I bought these while working for an environmental consulting firm to use for wildlife surveys. I have been absolutely blown away by the quality over the last two or three years. The image stabilization is excellent; I have been able to use these glasses to identify distant birds out the window of a moving vehicle on a bumpy dirt road.

            My only regret is not buying the 10x30 version of these. Normally I would stay away from the higher powers because the image gets too jumpy, but with the exceptional Canon image stabilizers I definitely would recommend going for the 10x30 or the 12x36 if you don't mind dropping the extra cash

              Comments about Canon 8x25mm IS Image Stabilized Binoculars:

              We had feared that it would be difficult to find binoculars that combined light weight, fairly small swize and image stabilized features. We are very satisfied with the 8x25 IS on all counts. So far, the bonoculars are being used mainly to watch the birds that come to our feeders and then perch in nearly lilac bushes. We have been astonished at the clarity and the wonders of the IS feature. It would be great if the binoculars were even smaller so they could slip into a pocket. But we think we have found the best compromise.

              You notice it if you are a bit shakey. Press the button and the image settles down. Us older people need all the help we can get.

              Comments about Canon 8x25mm IS Image Stabilized Binoculars:

              I have used the Canon 8X25 IS binoculars for about a year.My likes are: 1.convenient size-fits in my coat pocket easily 2.image stabilization really does work 3.water resistant- two hours of pouring rain and luckily no damage 4.superior image quality-many of my friends were wowed by the optical clarity 5.Binoculars.com was first rate answering my questions and getting what I wanted when I wanted it. One concern has been battery life is a little short. I wish it was a stronger power but the size was more important for me. After watching many football games,car races and used in many scenic hikes the Canon has met my expectations and then some.

              Customer Q & A

              Q1: Does the 8x25 IS work with eyeglasses well ? If not which one does ?

              A: Technically they would work, but I would likely recommend the Canon 10x30 IS Image Stabilized Binoculars, as their eye relief is closer to 15mm, which is recommended for comfortable viewing with eyeglasses.
