High Efficiency Shift-System Image Stabilizer System
The 8×20 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 8×20 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 8×20 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 8×20 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 8×20 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.
