Canon 8X25 Image Stabilized Optics

 

This replaced my free (company swag) Tasco 8X21 that I take to sports events and camping. No objective lens caps, but it does come with eyepiece caps and case. Stabilization is great, allowing me to focus on details that you could never see by...

Small, light, quick to focus on target. Can work without battery\stabilization as a regular 8X25 binocular. Standard binocular controls and features (main focus knob, right diopter, eye width adjustment, neck strap)

No objective lens caps. Battery size not so common. Costs 10 times the equivalent 8X21 non-stabilized set of binoculars. Size is about twice the size of equivalent binoculars

Solid Performer

 

Not Leica or Ziess optical quality, but much more affordable .

Solid construction, easy to hold & adjust. Work well for eyeglass wearers. Great optics, easy to use clean & maintain. Have used mine from Alaska to Central America with satisfactory results in clear or salt water. Good strap & carrying case. Excellent...

Heavier than some others, but worth the extra weight in durability.

Don\'t forget the weights

 

The housing requires weights in order to dive (weights aren\'t needed if you\'re just going to use it in a pool or at the beach). Weights are ordered separately. I missed this detail, ordered mine too late, and didn\'t have them for my once-a-year...

Good Value!

 

This is a great underwater housing for the money. HOWEVER, my only complaint is that you cannot TURN the rear dial on the camera with this housing. If you use aperature or shutter priority, you\'ll want to be able to turn the dial to change settings!...

Reliable and fun to use

 

I bought this for a scuba diving trip. I used to shoot Nikonos IV and V cameras with single or dual strobe setups and I was looking for something lightweight to travel with that would give me digital point-and-shoot capability underwater - obviously...
