Canon. A passion for perfection.
The legendary L Lens.
The bright red line engraved on the lens
barrel is the signature of the Canon L Lens.
L-series Lenses are on a level above the
rest, possessing groundbreaking image
performance, outstanding operability and
resistance to weather and aging. Canon's
L Lenses are well known by professional
photographers around the world for their
innovative optical design, exceptional
quality and brilliant clarity. Canon has equipped its new top-of-the-line model, the
10x42L IS WP, with extraordinary L-series technology. Manufactured to provide
superior image quality throughout the entire viewing area, two Ultra-low Dispersion
(UD) elements on each side give you a bolder, brighter view than can be achieved
with conventional optics found in ordinary binoculars. With them, you'll see more of
your subject, more clearly.
The genius is in the details.
Each Canon binocular has been engineered to deliver performance that
will impress. The state-of-the-art optical technology from Canon's
world-renowned EF Lens series has been carefully adapted
especially for use in several Canon binocular models,
offering unparalleled resolution. Also Super Spectra
Coating increases image contrast and reduces
lens flare and ghosting in many Canon
binoculars. In addition, Canon uses
Aspherical elements in several of its
designs to assure sharper focus while
dramatically cutting distortion.
Technologies like these enable
Canon binoculars to perform
at an extraordinarily high
Canon's remarkable Image Stabilizer Technology.
Minimize shaking, maximize viewing.
Shaking occurs naturally when you hold binoculars for an
extended period of time. Wind, muscle fatigue and
even excitement can contribute to "binocular
shake." The more powerful the binoculars, the
more pronounced the shake appears. It's tiring
on your eyes, it's distracting, and it makes
getting a good, sharp focus simply impossible.
To solve this common problem, many Canon
binoculars are equipped with Image
Stabilizer (IS) technologies. Originally
developed for Canon's high
performance video camcorder family,
these IS technologies have been
brilliantly adapted specifically for
Canon's binocular line.
Focus and follow.
Optical Image Stabilization System
It isn't always convenient to use a tripod —
especially if you or your subject is moving.
With Canon's IS binocular models there's no need for additional equipment. For
binoculars with magnification powers of 10x, 12x, 15x and 18x, Canon offers an Image
Stabilizer system utilizing a Vari-Angle Prism (VAP). This system has two sensors —
one vertical and another horizontal — that detect motion as well as a microprocessor
that adjusts the Vari-Angle Prism on
each side, in a bellows-type fashion,
according to the amount of
binocular shake detected. This
provides instant adjustment of the
refraction angle to compensate for
motion. So what you see through
the lenses is absolutely steady —

even when you're not.
