Surprising clarity will help line up potential photographs, but it comes at a price – £500 to be precise!

Canon 10 x 30 Water-Resistant Binoculars with Image Stabilizer

 

After years of using traditional binoculars, I finally got fed up at not being able to discern fine detail because my hands and arms weren't as stable as a tripod. And who is going to bring a tripod to a sporting event or a casual birdwatching outing?...

easy to hold, excellent optics, wonderful stabilization system

no protective caps for objective lenses, stabilizer drains batteries quickly

Canon 10 x 30 Water-Resistant Binoculars with Image Stabilizer

 

I bought them shortly after they came out and have traveled with them extensively. Alaska's climate never caused any problems, and for whale watching in Hawaii they're superb. Definitely try them before purchasing expensive standard binoculars because...

The stabilization is incredible. With the push of a button you can discern small details. Reading writing on distant objects, which can be a headache, is a snap with them

Bulky for 10x30 but worth it for the IS. They aren't armored or waterproof, although with reasonable care it's never been a problem for me

Canon 10 x 30 Water-Resistant Binoculars with Image Stabilizer

 

I ordered both of Canon IS models 8x25 and 10x30 after debating between size/cost and love both of them. If I only received the 8x25, I would also have been happy. Howevever, when you put them side by side, the 10x30 have better image quality and build...

Image clarity is incredible

Must hold button down for IS to work

Canon 10 x 30 Water-Resistant Binoculars with Image Stabilizer

 

Works as advertised and the various write-ups. The stabilizer really works and is great for sporting events - i.e., football games. The binoculars are easy to use and had excellent clarity. The 10 x 30 really brought the action much closer and is a...

Works as advertised. The stablizer adds a new deminsion. Well built and easy to use

None that I noted

Canon 10 x 30 Water-Resistant Binoculars with Image Stabilizer

 

These are the least expensive IS binoculars in their class (not counting Russian binoculars). The image they produce is very, very good, however Canon puts a lot of restrictions on their use. According to Canon, you can't use them in high humidity,...

unbelievably clear, steady image

not waterproof, no caps on objectives, IS button won't "stick" for 5-10 minutes

Consumer review by:

Amazing!

 

This is my 2nd set of these binoculars. I lost my 1st pair. However, the 1st pair was run over by a car. The only damage was cosmetic scratches. They\'re very durable! They\'re a little larger than other binoculars of the same magnification. The image...

I received these binoculars for Christmas and I love them! They're great for bird-watching and allow me to see detail I hadn't been able to see with other binoculars.

I used to have this same product but it grew legs and walked away from my truck. I loved these and am so glad to replace with the same thing.[...]

Product Specifications

Canon's new 10x30 IS Binoculars deliver outstanding optical performance and unparalleled image stabilization capabilities at a very affordable price. Whether you're sitting in the last stadium row or at the water's edge, you'll get a close-up view of the action with these contoured, lightweight binoculars. The 10x30 IS Binoculars are designed to fit perfectly in your hands. A textured rubber coating provides non-slip grip and protection from the elements, and the center-mounted focus and Image Stabilizer controls are easily accessible from either hand. You'll know these state-of-the-art binoculars are different from the moment you look through the lens. Canon has combined the power of 10x magnification with its innovative Optical Image Stabilization technology, proven highly successful in Canon camcorders and professional lenses, and a unique Doublet Field Flattener. The result is a high performance system that makes high magnification truly practical, eliminating shake and reducing curvature of field. The lenses are even coated with Canon's unique Super Spectra multicoating, another feature that improves overall image quality by maximizing contrast and minimizing color smear. With the Canon 10x30 IS Binoculars, you'll get images of extraordinary quality that are sharp and distortion-free from edge to edge. Its advanced design also provides a long 14.5mm eye relief, making the 10x30 IS a great choice for full-time eyeglass wearers. The Canon 10x30 IS Binoculars let you be a part of the action even from a distance.
