At a glance:

Outfitted with their proprietary Vari-Angle prism electronic image stabilization system, the Canon 10x42 L IS WP Image Stabilized Binocular is an ideal optic for bird and nature watching, marine use, or astronomical use. Its quick-response time and ±0.8° correction angle easily compensates for the common hand-shake that can make viewing through binoculars of this magnification difficult or disorientating. A single-activation button located precisely where the right forefinger naturally rests makes using them easy, and an optional 5-minute activation mode allows you to concentrate on viewing without distractions.For increased usage, the L IS WP will work as a full-featured binocular when the image stabilization is not being used - even if the batteries are dead or removed.

Optically, it is built with ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements and matching doublet field-flatteners, with their Super Spectra anti-reflection coatings to produce bright and clear high-contrast images without distortion across the entire wide field of view. Protecting the optics and electronics is an armored chassis that benefits from ergonomically-designed grips, and a standard 1/4"-20 tripod mount socket for an even steadier view.
