Canon 12×36 Image Stabilization II Binoculars w/Case, Neck Strap & Batteries

As an experienced birder/ bird watcher, I like spending on binoculars. Although, I have about 50 different varieties of binoculars, I still long for more. I just love spending on new binoculars. If my Amazon account is ever reviewed, the reviewer will find binoculars in nine out of ten purchases I’ve made.

Well, as I understand every binocular lover wants to own the latest and sophisticated pair of binoculars. While browsing through Amazon, I found another great pair of binoculars which has some latest technologically advanced features and is quite sophisticated too.

High-Resolution Optics

The 12×36 Image Stabilization II binoculars are equipped with excellent optics. It has a magnification of 12x which means it can zoom up to 12 times. Thus, a user will be able to view objects 12 times closer than he can with a naked eye.

The objective lenses of the binoculars are off 36 mm diameters, which are multi-coated to deliver brighter images. The coating also provides relief to the users’ eyes. The binoculars are equipped with latest technology apparatus like Doublet Field Flattener, which helps in image sharpening.

Image Stabilization

The 12×36 Image Stabilization II binoculars boast image stabilization as their USP. Also, not many binoculars come with this feature. The binocular uses Vari- Angle Prism (VAP) corrective image stabilization system to provide this feature.

A special Vari- Angle Prism sits between the objective lens and Porro prism which enables the feature of Image stabilization. Even the control of image stabilization is located at the center of the binocular for easy handling.

The best part is that the reaction time of the binoculars is superb, it’s around 1000th of a second which is awesomely fast.

Rubber Armored

The 12×36 Image Stabilization II binoculars are covered with rubber armor that is fitted to provide a no- slip firm grip. The rubber armor prevents the binoculars from slipping and breaking.

The rubber armor also provides water and dust resistance. It does not allow water to fog the optics when caught in a light rain. The rubber armor housing absorbs shocks and helps in image stabilization.

It is quite helpful and one of the most important preventive measures taken by the manufacturers. The armor also prevents the binoculars from getting any scratches from eyeglasses.
