Why image stabilization is a revolution in binoculars
 
If you want to get a quick idea why image stabilization (IS) is the next revolution in binoculars, that's easy: take any binoculars that you can get and look through them at some object (a printed page of paper with several font sizes is ideal). Then look again at the same object from the same distance, but this time with the binoculars moudnted on a steady support (don't touch em!). You will notice that the actual resolution increases by a factor of at least 2 or 3 when mounted. That is, you ca...

Astounding Advance
 
I was recently given these image stabilized binoculars as a gift and they are simpley astounding. While their optics are quite good without the image stabilization engaged, with it engaged they are phenomenal. Despite steady hands (I'm a surgeon) there is always some high frequency tremor that causes the image to quiver. Even with the superb optics of far more expensive binoculars such as Zeiss or Leica the limitting factor in resolution becomes this high frequency quiver. With Canon's image...

Comfortable 10X magnification
 
This is the first binocular that allows me to move up to 10X magnification & not feel eye strain. I can focus on tiny details without my brain hurting from the movement. I had the opportunity to do a side by side comparison with a pair of Leica 10X binocs. & the Canon optics were VERY close. The stable image made the difference though. At night I can look at the moon & see so much more than ever before. The Canon IS binoculars are a totally unique viewing experience. Really, th...

Six Month Award
 
About once every six months I buy something where the quality or functionality blows me away. It's probably more likely through e-commerce when you've never actually seen the product (power of low expectations). Anyway, these 10x30 IS binoculars get the six month award. I looked at [more expensive] image stabilized binoculars and these are hands down better. No jerky movement when panning -- Excellent stabilized image... No achromatic distortion, bright, clear flat image out to the edge, ...

Amazing Pair of Binoculars
 
I bought this pair of binoculars after reading the reviews of several different pairs/brands. I bought them for an Alaskan cruise I just came back from. I cannot say enough about how great these binoculars are. The IS techncology is particularly amazing cause most of the viewing I did was on a moving vessel. The IS technology greatly compensated for any movement from my less than steady hands, and even when supported on the side of the ship, they eliminated much of the jitter from the moving shi...

Absolute joy to use
 
I just received these binoculars yesterday and am already enjoying them immensely. They are without a doubt the best binoculars I have ever owned or looked through, and at a great price compared to many high end brands. The image stabilization is just magical (I also have this technology in my camcorder and digital camera) and with it on, the image is rock solid and crystal clear. I even jiggled the binocs on purpose and the image was stable, but moved wildly when I turned off the stabilization....

How Canon I go Back
 
These are, simply put, the best compact binoculars out there. There is no way of ever going back to binoculars without an image stabilizer. I am going to sell my telescope ( Celestron G5) because the views of the moon I am seeing through the 10x30 are crisp, clear, and astounding.....and I can take them anywhere ( contrary to my Celestron - great scope - but for obvious reasons, a pain to cart everywhere) I didn't think I would see this much detail...the ImageStabilizer really brings out t...

Amazing!
 
I just bought this pair of binoculars and I am already planning to get the higher-end 18x50 Canon IS. I did a considerable amount of research and compared several models (both IS and non-IS) before I bought this pair and they are just incredible. I plan to use them primarily for astronomy. The optics are excellent.pros:- Need i say more. If the budget suits you, I'd recommend the higher-end 18x50s.cons:- I think the price is still steep at ~[$] for a 10x30.The only ...

Great!
 
These binoculars work great! The image stabilization works like a charm, and the optical quality is very sharp and clear. My only beefs are that 1) there are no lens caps for the rear lenses - this seems absurd to me, and 2) the IS button is very small and centered, so you have to hold the binocs a certain way with both hands in order to press the button. Seems that it should have had a much larger button or buttons on the sides.

Worth the Money
 
I purchased these binoculars for a cruise this May to Alaska. I wanted a good set for viewing from the ship and while on hikes for my wife. I recently used them at Fontana Raceway and they are GREAT! I was able to track the cars clearly on the large 2 mile track with no vibration in the image. I am in my late forties, and the ability to take out the small shakes is wonderful. The large eye pieces also give you a great field of view, even while using with glasses. This is a great item to pu...
