MELVILLE, NY — Canon U.S.A. has introduced three new additions to its portfolio of Canon Image Stabilized Binoculars with the 14×32 IS, 12×32 IS and 10×32 IS. While all current Canon binoculars are equipped with an image stabilization (IS) function, new to these binocular models is Lens Shift Image Stabilization Technology. The IS technology, found in Canon EF lenses, allows users to see an even sharper image by moving the IS lens to correct optical axis. This technology incorporates a vibration gyro mechanism that assists in canceling out the effects of user-shake or movement.
The three new binoculars are the first Canon binoculars to feature Powered Image Stabilization, a feature frequently found in Canon digital cameras and camcorders. Even the slightest shake when using high- magnification binoculars could translate into a blurred or unstable image from the binocular. When a user utilizes the Powered IS user-shake and movement can be quickly corrected and image quality remains intact.
“Canon is very proud of its imaging heritage and ability to utilize technologies and solutions across a broad spectrum of products, including our line of Canon Image Stabilized Binoculars,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The technology implemented into these new models will enhance users’ experiences while offering the familiarity and quality they trust in Canon optics.”
Additional features include:
- Microcomputer Control Technology
- Improved Design and Comfortable Grip
- Field Flattener Lens
- Super Spectra Lens Coating
- 6.6 ft. (2m) Minimum Focusing Distance
Canon’s new 14×32 IS, 12×32 IS and 10×32 IS binocular models are scheduled to go on sale November 2017 with an estimated retail price of $1,449.00, $1,399.00 and $1,349.00 respectively.
