Compact and Lightweight IS Binoculars
With its compact construction that is accompanied by excellent usability, including a rounded grip that can sit comfortably in your hand, the 10×20 IS binoculars are easy and light enough to use for extended periods of time. For situations in the field that call for a closer look and observing the fine details in nature, the 10×20 delivers bright, crisp images, where you’ll never miss a thing.
High Magnification Ratio: 10x
Engineered with an excellent optical system, Canon’s 10×20 IS binoculars can deliver impressive performance and a stunning, close-up view through a high magnification ratio of 10x. This makes it easy to see details and action that would likely be missed with the naked eye. From the intricate feathers of a bird on a branch, or buck far in the distance, the 10×20 IS binoculars can help you get closer to the subject.
High Efficiency Shift-System Image Stabilizer System
The 10×20 IS binoculars feature a powerful Lens Shift Image Stabilization system that’s remarkably effective in canceling out possible shaking made by movement and vibration. Borrowing technology from Canon’s EF lenses, Lens Shift Image Stabilization maintains a steady view by incorporating a continually adjusting vibration gyro mechanism, moving the IS lens both vertically and horizontally. This helps the 10×20 IS binoculars deliver clear and sharp images with minimal color fringing for a view that’s consistently pleasing to look at.
Powered IS Mode
Originating from Canon’s high-quality video and digital camera technology, the 10×20 IS binoculars’ Powered IS technology significantly improves upon conventional binocular IS technology. Activated with a single press of the IS button for up to 5 minutes of continuous operation, Powered IS makes it easy to maintain a high-magnification view, especially in situations where body movement or strong shake might occur. Toggle between Powered IS and Normal IS to pick the ideal mode for the scene, whether your subject is still or in motion.
Field Flattener Lens
The 10×20 IS binoculars uses a field flattening lens element to provide edge-to-edge sharpness for vivid images. Countering the blurred effect typically rendered by the curvature of conventional lens elements, field flattener lenses help deliver a sharp, low-distortion image across the entire field of view.
Super Spectra Coating
To reduce color bias, lens flare and ghosting as well as render a sharp view with contrast, the 10×20 IS binoculars incorporate Super Spectra Coating on its lenses. This coating effectively suppresses reflected light across a wide range of wavelengths, resulting in high contrast, high definition and a clear viewing experience.
Minimum Focusing Distance of up to 6.6 ft. / 2m
A notable reduction over previous models, the 10×20 IS binoculars feature a minimum focusing distance of 6.6 ft. (2m) ideal for viewing animals, flowers and other small objects from a short distance. Combined with the 10x magnification ratio, it’s easy to see even the smallest details with the 10×20 IS binoculars.
Ergonomic Design and Comfortable Grip
Not only does the incorporation of Lens Shift Image Stabilization improve optical performance, but it also has the added benefit of making the 10×20 IS binoculars easy and comfortable to hold. Through the miniaturization of the IS unit the binoculars provide an ergonomic and sturdy grip, allowing intuitive access to the IS switch, focusing ring diopter and more, with ease.
