Canon 10x30 IS Binoculars
The compact and lightweight Canon 10x30 IS Ultra-Compact binoculars offer a built-in optical image stabilizer feature that sets them apart from competitors. While some users dismiss this feature as a gimmick, it has been found to work extremely well overall. The image stabilization feature addresses the issue of shakiness often plaguing binoculars at this level of magnification, making them well-suited for bird watching and stargazing. Although this easy to use feature requires two AA batteries, it works well in all lighting conditions.
These binoculars offer excellent all-around performance. While there are units that cost less and perform just as well, many will find the added cost of the Canon 10x30 IS worthwhile for the image stabilization feature alone.
